Not an extreme couponer but always looking for a great deal? That’s where Groupon comes in as a curator of great offers for products, services, and experiences for whatever it is that you’re interested in. While Groupon has fantastic local deals on things in your neck of the woods (50% off at your local bakery! Discounted bike rentals!), it also offers some pretty unexpected—and seriously great—steals from brands you already know and love.
Here are a few examples of the aforementioned great steals on the site right now. Even if you don’t see anything that sparks your interest here, it’s worth doing a quick browse because they have a 20% off site-wide sale happening May 28 and 29.
Harman Kardon wireless bluetooth speaker: These Onyx speakers have an impressive sound quality for how portable and lightweight they are. They can also connect to two devices at the same time—which is surprisingly convenient if you’re switching from watching TV on your computer to playing music on your phone—and play up to 8 hours on a full charge. And with a 67% discount, bringing your total to $149.99, it’s a really good deal.
Magazine subscriptions: Did you know that Groupon offered great deals on magazine subscriptions, both the digital and analog kind? Now you do! There are tons to choose from, including household names like The New Yorker (91% off), National Geographic (74% off), and Popular Science (50% off).
Mophie external battery: The Mophie Dual-USB Portable Power Bank is a life saver decked in rose gold, and something we should all carry around to spare us the weirdly-specific anxiety of being low on phone battery and not knowing where the nearest outlet is. And at this price––$39.99, which is a whopping 73% off the original price of $149.95––you should grab one fast.
Meditative “adult” coloring books: Immerse yourself into the trendy and amazing world of adult activity books. This coloring book and these paint-by-sticker books both serve as satisfying and creative ways to let your brain unwind after a long day.
Fujifilm mini instant camera: Polaroid cameras are having a resurgence in the age of Instagram. Carrying around this tiny and easy-to-use Fujifilm instant camera makes for instant fun and keepsakes that are so much more special than sharing it to the web.
If you’re not into these products but very into these deals, head to Groupon and keep browsing.
