DC Deals

Today's post is not fashion-related it is DC on the cheap awesome related.

Living in the city does have its draw backs:
-living in a room smaller than most office kitchens for too much of a percentage of your paycheck
-constant ambulance and fire truck sirens (which some people can sleep through)
-tourists. No explanation needed.

BUT living in a city also has it's perks- today I'm going to focus on DC online deals. DC has tons of coupon websites that feature discounts off of your already favorite eateries, stores, and services. Let's begin.

Groupon- This was my first daily email in the DC coupon world. Groupon features restaurants as well as experiences. Most recently some of the deals have been:
Buy With Me- This site is a little bit different: For each deal to become valid, we need to gather enough interested customers and meet the minimum benchmark before the deadline. Once we reach the required mark, everyone gets the deal! If we fall short, the deal is completely off, and neither you nor the merchant will be charged at all. Recent deals:
Living Social- Is much like Groupon but after you buy the deal, you'll get a unique link to share. If three people buy the deal using your link, then your deal is free. Recent deals:
Deals for Deeds- This site is pretty unique. Same deal as the other sites but when you checkout you'll be prompted to pick which charity you would like 5% of your purchase to go towards. Recent deals:

$10 for $20 worth of food and drink at Town Tavern
  • 30 bottle custom wine-making experience at half price!
  • $15 for $30 worth of goods from Pulp DC

Home Run- Just like Buy With Me, enough people need to buy the coupon for the deal to activate. Recent deals:
  • $2 for 1 mojito at Zengo
  • Free soft serve ice cream at ACKC
  • 50% off Potomac Pizza
City Shop Girl- This one is for the ladies because it discounts events, boutiques, department stores, restaurants, spas and specialty stores. Recent deals:
  • Potenza: For $28, you get 3 small plates with a 2 glass wine pairing
  • Celebrate the opening of Panas in Dupont Circle, come in between 11am-1pm today to receive a free empanada
  • Guests receive a glass of Champagne, 2 crafted cocktails by award winning bartender Derek Brown and a small plate from the kitchen for $54
Tippr- This site is fun because the discounts get bigger and bigger. The more people that buy the coupon the bigger the discount gets! Recent deals:
  • $25 for $50 worth of Dicks Cottons sunglasses
  • $15 for $40 worth of Professionals in the City
  • $35 for $75 worth of John O' Leary's Golf Academy
What's the Deal- This is a great site for food and fun discounts. No catches, no gimmicks here. Recent deals:
  • 50% off at Capitol Hill Tandoor and Grill
  • 30% off the Arlington Scavenger Hunt
  • 60% off classes at Boundless Yoga
