Clearasil

I remember the days of troublesome acne. I probably didn’t have it any worse than the average teenager or anything, but sometimes I’d wear hats just to cover up my forehead. One of the good things about growing up is not having to deal with that as often, although acne will still get me if I’m not careful to wash my face several times a day. Clearasil has always been part of my defense and I just wish their ultra line existed way back when.

Right now you can save $2.00 on all Clearasil products by filling out a short form on their website. Just provide your name, email and couple other details to receive a printable coupon. It’s that easy.


Facebook Deals Launches

Facebook Deals

Facebook Deals

Last month we wrote an article about the new Facebook Deals platform and asked you whether you’d stay loyal to Groupon or LivingSocial if Facebook’s offering was on par or better. Well, the Facebook Deals platform officially launched this this in five US markets including Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, San Diego and San Francisco.

If you live in or around one of these cities, you’ve likely already gotten notifications about opting in to the program or seen updates about friends joining. But for the rest of you that don’t live in one of these areas, I just wanted to share a sneak peek of what you’ll have soon.

Once you opt-in Facebook Deals will stake a spot in your left navigation bar. When you click on it, it will pull up categories and current deals in areas like events & activities, arts & entertainment and more. Click on a deal and you’ll get a full summary of the offering including price, limitations and how to redeem it. As can be expected, there’s a pretty big push on sharing, liking, or posting the deals to your wall so they appear in friends’ feeds. Maybe that’s all hard to visualize though, so I’ve included a couple screenshots below.

Facebook Deals Page on a Profile:

Example of an actual deal:

There aren’t a large number of deals in the marketplace yet as the service starts up, but to me it’s really convenient to handle deals through a website I visit frequently anyways. Plus, if I’m interested in a fun activity or restaurant deal, it’s super easy to share with friends so you can enjoy everything together. While I do have some qualms about everything being about Facebook, I do like how deals encourage offline activity to actually spend time with your friends too. What do you think about it?

Tips on Dining Out For Less

Friends enjoying a meal

Friends enjoy a meal

You can cook, stockpile, potluck and resist temptation to save some money, but sometimes it’s just nice to go out for a meal, especially if there’s reason to celebrate. And honestly, there’s nothing wrong with that. Here are some ways you can keep the costs of eating out under control.

Coupons – It’s worth searching online for coupons to your favorite restaurants. You can also take advantage of deals at sites like Groupon,  LivingSocial and Restaurant.com.

Order Water – It’s free and your body is craving it anyways. Plus, it’ll save a few bucks compared to ordering a soda.

Eat Out for Breakfast or Lunch – At many places, the prices for these meals are cheaper and serve the same size portions. You’ll also dodge the crowds.

Dine Out on the Weekdays – Besides dodging the weekend crowds, you’ll be privy to weekday specials.

Take Part In Surveys – A bunch of restaurants offer discounts on future visits when you give them some helpful feedback.

Pass on Dessert – Do you really need it? If so, pick up some ice cream from the grocery store on your way home.

Go International – Ethnic restaurants serve amazing food sometimes at a fraction of the price than the chain establishments.

Kids Eat Free Nights – Look out for these! Places like Denny’s, Friendly’s and IHOP are big on these.

Go Veggie – Meat’s expensive. Vegetarian entrees are sometimes way less expensive.

Skip the Alcohol – If you can, skip the adult beverages since that’s where restaurants place a high margin. If you really need to, look for places that allow you to bring in beer and wine. They exist.

Soap.com Delivers True Convenience

Soap.com

Soap.com

So I think I’m absolutely sold on Soap.com after hearing about it from a friend. The people that run this website just get it.

Soap.com is an online store that specializes on essentials – practically anything you’d find in a drugstore, whether it’s cleaning supplies, personal care, makeup or vitamins. But the awesome part? These are delivered straight to your home without the hassle of battling crowded aisles or taking time out of your otherwise busy day. But when I said Soap.com really gets its customers, I mean it. There’s not only that convenience factor, they give you 15% off and free shipping off your first order using coupon code “BLUESPLASH”. Prices seem to be pretty on par with Target/Walmart and shipping is always within 1 or 2 days so it’s actually manageable to wait for an order.

This is absolutely what I’m looking for when it comes to shopping for these items. And with that 15% incentive to try it out, why wouldn’t you?

The eBay of Daily Deals

Skeedka.com

Skeedka.com

So back in February we wrote about how marketplaces for daily deals that owners no longer needed or wanted were popping up. We mentioned Lifesta, CoupRecoup and DealsGoRound as leaders in that space, but one of our readers also recommended checking out Skeedka.

Skeedka is a bit different than the rest of these sites in that it offers fixed price, make an offer and auctioning capabilities. As a buyer, you purchase, bid or make offers on other people’s deals. Once a deal is purchased you simply make a payment and the link to your voucher is emailed to you and available in your Skeedka account. As a seller, you post a deal for sale by auction, fixed price or best offer and are required to upload the original pdf of your deal voucher. Once the deal is sold and paid for, you receive the funds and your voucher pdf is emailed to the buyer. Only sellers incur listing fees, but buyers are required to make payments within 72 hours of a deal’s purchase from the seller.

The site still seems to be lacking in amount of users, but it’s an interesting model that could gain traction as more users join. Thanks to Tracy Young for the tip!

$25 Restaurant.com Certificate for $2

Restaurant.com

Restaurant.com

Restaurant.com has a coupon code running that allows you to purchase a $25 certificate to participating restaurants for only $2 (instead of the usual $10 price tag). Just enter “STEAK” as the coupon code when checking out to receive the discount.

If you’ve never redeemed one of these before, it’s pretty simple. Just find a participating restaurant on the website. When you dine at that restaurant, present the certificate. There are a few restrictions, but nothing overwhelming. You can only use one certificate per table and must meet a food minimum (usually $35 for a $25 certificate). Alcohol, tax and tips are excluded from that minimum. Some restaurants may also decline the use of the certificate on busy Friday or Saturday nights, so you may want to call ahead just to make sure they’ll honor the deal before you stop by.

There are over 18,000 participating restaurants so there’s sure to be something close by. A $25 off certificate for $2? That’s tough to beat.

LivingSocial Marks Its Territory

LivingSocial.com

LivingSocial.com

With so many daily deals sites out there, and our limited ability or desire to keep track of them all as consumers, you might be wondering which sites will survive and which will fold. Well if outside investment is any indication, LivingSocial is here to stay.

The daily deals platform, which previously used a $175 million investment from Amazon to grow to 26 million members has completed an additional $400 million round of funding. The backing comes from some serious investors including T. Rowe Price, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Institutional Venture Partners and Amazon (again). You can tell LivingSocial is working hard to topple Groupon, but just what will all that money be used for? LivingSocial plans to use the funding to hire more staffers, invest in product innovation and continue its aggressive domestic and international growth.

It’s really looking like local deals are narrowing down to LivingSocial and Groupon, but do you think the two can co-exist? And if you’ve tried both, which site do you prefer?
