Between weekend travel, weddings and summertime spending, my wallet’s been aching a bit lately. It wasn’t until I went to Yelp Corfu, a new Mediterranean tapas place on Cross Street, and saw a $20 for $30 Yelp deal that I remembered how often I used to rely on Groupon, Living Social and other deal sites for affordable date nights (and girls’ nights out!).
I used to always open and read those daily deal emails. I loved them. In fact, I loved them so much that I kept signing up for more. Groupon, Living Social, Capitol Deal, Yipit, Woot. It got out of control. So I slowly stopped checking them, forgot about them, and that was that. But when I saw the Yelp deal for Corfu–which is supposed to be great, by the way–I started poking around my old haunts to see what kind of bargains I was missing out on.
Thought you all might be in the same boat so I figured I’d share my findings. In no particular order:
**When buying a deal, be sure to read the fine print on how/when the voucher can be used as well as when it expires. Also remember to tip on the bill amount BEFORE the applied discount.**
Of course, Baltimore’s Restaurant Week also starts on Friday, so that’s another way to try a new spot without breaking the bank. If you haven’t already made your reservations, get on it!
