There’s a new groupon company in town called, Family Finds. A brilliant idea, they cater to finding daily deals specifically suited to families! I just bought a deal that they are currently running and I wanted to tell you about it. It was a deal 50% at a new toy store on Melrose called, PUZZLE ZOO.
Here’s how it worked. I bought the coupon on line and printed out the voucher that I then brought to the store. I had just heard about PUZZLE ZOO toy store opening and I had been meaning to check them out. What a perfect way, but with a coupon in hand? I bought two five-dollar coupons, which cost me $10.00. That would enable me to buy $20.00 worth of merchandise. Since I am still way behind on my holiday shopping EEK this groupon was a no brainier. I went to Puzzle Zoo on Melrose, and was impressed. It is a good sized toy store packed with a wide variety of toys, from Lego, to tiny glass animals, games, cars, and those little erasers that are shaped like cupcakes and hamburgers that my kids LOVE, and I am not sure why exactly. I bought a bunch of stocking stuffers and was delighted to receive my significant discount with my Family Find coupon. My coupon would have been valid through the month of March. So if I were organized, as you might be, and are done with buying Christmas gifts, I could have saved it for the purchase of an upcoming birthday party gift.
If Family Finds, can figure out where moms need to go/want to go anyway, and create an attractive deal to entice us to make the purchase, how can we not buy it? In my mind, the 50% discount at a toy store means more money in my pocket, and even perhaps the thought of a guilt free spa treatment – something to reward myself for my cleverness, and thriftiness.
The PUZZLE ZOO coupon is still available on Family Finds if you want to check both of them out. And if you do buy one, LACityMom will get a $10 referral that could enable me to buy a future deal free. Or if you refer a friend, and they buy the deal, you’ll build up cash towards a future deal, too. A guilt free spa treatment could be closer than we think…let’s see, where shall we go? I’ve got some ideas.
