Are You Living Social?

If you love a great bargain, then this post is for you. Yesterday I came across a new website. It is called LivingSocial. LivingSocial offers one fantastic deal every day with discounts of up to 90% at local restaurants, bars, spas, theaters, and more.

But the best part about this website is that it is free. No signup fees, not extra charges. You just look at the daily deal in your city and if you want to purchase it, you click on the purchase button and your DONE. It is fantastic. I also love that is is specific to the city that you live in. They have daily deals for a ton of cities! And there are deals in Canada and Europe too!! These are the cities that they include:

Yesterday I bought an hour-long facial for Sois Belle Spa in Greenville for $32! This was 50% off the regular price. A few other examples of deals they have had in the past week in Greenville are- 20 hot yoga classes at Southern Om for $20. That was a 91% discount! An hour massage at Simply massage for $30 (54% off!) and $30 gift cards for Chicora Alley for only $15!! 

I decided to sign up for the daily deal e-mails for Greenville, Charlotte, and Charleston since I go to all three cities pretty frequently. The other day they had The Schooner Pride Sunset Sail tickets in Charleston for $25 (55% off!!) And in Charlotte they featured Eden Therapy & Massage
1-Hour Massages for $35. 

If your city is on the list you are definitely going to want to sign up.

You get 5 Deal Bucks when you sign up and I'll get 5 Deal Bucks when you buy your first deal. Just click HERE

Hope you love this website as much as I do.

Today's Greenville deal is for Skydive Carolina.

It's a bird, it's a plane, no... it's a skydiver who grabbed today's deal from Skydive Carolina. For just $124 (regularly $209) score one tandem skydive and be the Superman you always wanted to be (sans the loud blue, yellow, and red "S" emblazoned on your chest). After 30 minutes of classroom coaching, you'll get to experience the rush of a lifetime as you, with your instructor strapped behind you, go flying through the air faster than a speeding bullet -- at least until your parachute deploys. Then, let 'er rip (the cord that is) and enjoy five minutes of flight time under your parachute.

Today's Columbia deal is for a Slimming Herbal Body Wrap at Tranquil Moments Day Spa for $40.

Today's Charleston deal is for Granville's Cafe. It is offering a fine-dining experience, valued at $76, for just $30. This means you'll be treating someone special to one of Charleston's top restaurants and two complimentary glasses of champagne.
