10/29 KVOA's Savvy Savings News Story Information- My Favorite 6 Daily Deal Websites

Welcome, KVOA viewers!  Here's the information
from the story that will air TODAY on the 4 p.m. news program.

My FAVORITE Six Daily Deal Websites 

All are FREE to sign up.  All offer 50-90% deals daily off retail websites, restaurants, salons, major attractions, services, and more.  You have an allotted amount of time (generally 1 to 3 days) to purchase the deal and generally 6 months to a year to redeem the deal at the business or website.   So, here's my list of Favorites:

Living Social offers a daily deal specifically for Tucson Monday through Thursday and a weekend deal Friday through Sunday.  They offer the same type of deals for 89 other market areas as well.

You have until Sunday to purchase this deal and until 05/01/11 to use the voucher.
Deal Location
828 E. Speedway
Tucson, AZ 85719

You get $5 Deal Bucks to use on your first order at Living Social which could get you today's deal $10 of Gourmet Tacos and drinks from Boca for FREE or $20 of food or drink for only $5.


Groupon is one of the most well known Daily Deal sites.  For Tucson, they offer a daily deal Monday through Thursday and a weekend deal Friday through Saturday.  They often offer a side deal as well as the main deal.  They almost daily have online deals that are listed under a specific city but can be ordered by any one in the United States since they ship directly to your home.  Today they have 10 of these online deals available.

This Weekend's Tucson Groupon Deal:


$15 for $30 Worth of Mediterranean-Inspired Fare and Drinks at Azul Restaurant and Lounge at The Westin La Paloma

You have through Sunday to purchase this deal and until May 1, 2011 to use it.

Nationwide Groupons

The following Groupon Daily offers are available in certain cities BUT the offers are redeemable online which makes them available to everyone

To see the particular offer you are interested in, look for the city offering the deal under “Visit More Cities” at the top of the Groupon homepage. Here are the offers available today:

Select listed city as your city @ You do not need to live in select city. Purchase the groupon and then you will receive a code to redeem your code online.

Dallas- Get a $100 credit to use toward Picaboo photo books, cards, and calendars for just $35. Plus, this Groupon can be used toward shipping! The Groupon expires in one year, and would be great for the upcoming holidays.

NYC (Deal Nearby) and Milwaukee (Deal Nearby)- Get a 16″x20″ Canvas on Demand gallery-wrapped photo canvas for just $45- 65% off the regular price. Photo canvases are usually pretty pricey, so this is a great deal! And since the canvas is gallery-wrapped, you won’t need a frame.

Los Angeles (Deal Nearby)- Pick $75 worth wines from Barclay’s Wine for $25. Shipping is not included. Limited to first-time Groupon Barclay’s customers.

Richmond (Side Deal) and Fresno (Side Deal)- Pick $30 worth of gourmet popcorn from POPtions for $15. Shipping is not included, though the Fresno deal says you’ll receive half off shipping.

The application process is simple: peel and stick for optimal viewing. All labels are made in the USA, by a company created with care by two real-life dads with years of traditional business expertise.
The labeling fun will greatly improve your holiday routine. Label Daddy’s line of festive gift tags, address labels, and gift-wrap packs let you enjoy the giving process in a relaxed and most peaceful fashion.

10/27 - 11/02 Tucson Grocery Deals



CVS (ends Saturday)



Walgreens (ends Saturday) 


Sunflower Markets

Pinching Your Pennies is a free website that lists weekly deals with coupons. Click on the current list. I love that they give the deals STAR ratings. You know that 4 or 5 stars is a great deal.

If you live outside Arizona, click here to see the deals listed by other States!

Want to Increase Your Couponing Savings even more?

If you are wanting to seriously coupon, there are websites that charge to see a more intense list of coupons matched with what is on sale. Couponsense is the most used here in Arizona. They have a more comprehensive list for the serious couponer. They teach you how to combine online loadable coupons with manufacturer coupons to get even better deals. Right now they have a promotion for those who want to try it. $4 for the first month and $15 each month after. You can cancel at any time.  
I just signed up recently to try it.  I compared the PYPs list and the Couponsense list and I easily saved the extra $15 on just my one shopping trip.

I also saved so much time using Couponsense.  Before I was copying and pasting each individual deal I wanted to use from Pinching Your Pennies to make my list.  Then, I'd go by each deal and cut out the individual coupons.  Couponsense cut at least 2-3 hours off my couponing last week.  You click on the deals you want to use, it generates you a shopping list per store and a coupon cutting list that tells you that from this specific Sunday insert, you need these coupons for your deals.  I'm LOVING this.

If you choose to try Couponsense, use the promo code:  enjoy the savings

Select Referred by friend and enter Stephanie Ashcraft.  It should show Andrea VanHorn as your instructor.  She lives here in Arizona and is one of the top 10 couponers in their company.
