Check Out Groupon Coupons

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% mine. 

Groupon Coupons

I have a confession to make…I love Groupon. I’m always on there looking for deals. They have great opportunities for gifts, getaways and things to do in your area. One thing I really like about Groupon are their coupons. They have so many to choose from. You can often find really great deals for almost anything. The coupons are for things you would use in everyday life and the best part is you can look for them directly from your phone.

I’ve used Groupon coupons for trips and various attractions and I love how I can now use them for local retailers. It’s so easy to use and who doesn’t love to save money? Here are just some of the retailers that I have found and used on Groupon Coupons.

  • Kohl’s
  • JC Penney’s
  • Macy’s
  • Home Decorators
  • Tea Collections
  • Target
  • Walmart
  • BJ’s
  • Edible Arrangements
  • Sam’s Club

Sometimes you can catch the 1-day free pass for there Sam’s Club and get some really good deals. If you don’t see the Sam’s Club one, BJ’s has a $5 deal for a membership too. The Popcorn Factory usually has really great gift coupons for the popcorn lovers in your life. Groupon Coupons is definitely one of the first places I look for deals when shopping. Be sure to connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

Do you have any favorite retailers on Groupon Coupons?

Happy New Year Family!

 

Happy New Year Everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful time with your loved ones over the holidays. We took some time to go visit family and friends in the Northeast region. We had a great time with our loved ones. Christmas breakfast was definitely a highlight of the trip. Lots of food, laughs and love flowing through out the house.

It’s a new year and we know many of you have made resolutions for the new year and others are going back to their regular scheduled food regimens that began before Thanksgiving. If you are starting a new healthy eating challenge or continuing on the one you started before the holidays, we will have some blog posts coming up that will help you with your meal options.

Be on the look out for some new things coming this year with Southern Roots Kitchen. You the readers requested some additional topics to be discussed on the blog and we will bring them to you. We’re not getting rid of anything, just adding some more variety to the blog. We appreciate all the feedback that you provide and we welcome you to reach out and send us more.
