WIN! €50 Groupon Voucher Giveaway, on Fluff and Fripperies [Now Closed!]

They seemed to spring from nowhere. When the recession had well and truly bitten and drinks with umbrellas seemed but a far-off memory, group buying sites were like manna from heaven.

Suddenly, life’s little luxuries were back within our grasp…as long as we had a coupon. And believe you me, I’ve had a coupon or two: weekends away, haircuts, massages, meals out - I’ve enjoyed them all, thanks to a cheeky little internet deal.

Arguably the biggest and best of these sites is Groupon, which launched in November 2008 and features a deal-of-the-day with great offers on things to eat, do, see and buy in a variety of cities around the world. In just three years, Groupon has grown into a 15 billion dollar company that has revolutionised the way we buy.

I'm very fond of my daily Groupon email; each deal is presented with a quirky humour that makes it fun and engaging to read. The last one I bought, for a foot care treatment, enticed me in with this opening line: Without feet, tap shoes couldn't dance, millipedes would be worms, and inches wouldn't know when to stop.

And now I have reason to like them even more: Groupon are giving away a €50 voucher to one lucky reader of Fluff and Fripperies. Here’s how to enter:

1. You must be following Fluff and Fripperies through Google Friend Connect (you can do this through a google, twitter or yahoo account – hit the Join this Site button under the Facebook gadget, in the sidebar to the right there).

2. Leave a comment with an email address or twitter name where you can be reached if you win (if you don’t want to leave your email, just leave a comment and mail me on emma at fluffandfripperies dot com).

3. Like Fluff and Fripperies and Groupon Ireland on Facebook. And that’s it!
This giveaway is only open to residents of the Republic of Ireland; the winner will be chosen at random and informed one week from today.

Good luck everyone!

Hey Emma,
There doesn't seem to be a question for the comp.
Anyhoo, I heart the blog & am a divil for the Groupon deals so this is the perfect match. :)

No Question but here is my answer anyway: wait until the water starts to boil and then time for three minutes.

Will email you with my email details!

great giveaway, emma! to answer your question - the book is good, and it is inspiring to read someone elses story, cause it makes you think about your own. so, yes, i would recommend it. but i have to warn you that maybe this book won't do the same for you as it did for me.

xoxo, andie
