Let’s All Groupon!

I’ve heard a lot about Groupon lately, and if you know me, I love a getting a deal.  So I signed up for emails in the Boston and Worcester area, and was duly unimpressed.  The daily emails were clogging up my inbox and were rarely anything I was interested in.  The restaurants and spas featured were often too far away (now if they had a Nashua, NH location, that would be a different story).  I switched to receiving the deals through my RSS reader instead of email and purchased a few Groupons but still wasn’t bowled over.  Until yesterday.


OMG!! $99 for 30-Minute Rental of Lamborghini Gallardo and 30-Minute Rental of Ferrari Modena 360 at Steam Sport Technologies in Danvers ($274.75 Value). Driving two supercars for 60 minutes??  I went and bought one for Doug’s birthday.  And one for myself. smile_regular

This Groupon actually tipped first on Worcester and then Boston today, so if you love Ferraris like I do, there’s still time today to purchase it.  Of course, if you not a car fanatic, there are plenty of reasonable deals for fun places and stores like Chunky’s Cinema Pub (sold out) or Marbles: The Brain Store (expired).

I should have known that driving the Ferrari Modena 360 was in the cards for me since I was pegged as one in this quiz that I posted three years ago.

I'm a Ferrari 360 Modena!

You've got it all. Power, passion, precision, and style. You're sensuous, exotic, and temperamental. Sure, you're expensive and high-maintenance, but you're worth it. Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

Wow, this quiz has got me pegged!  It also reminds me of a facebook quiz that I took years ago where I was typed as a Bugatti Veyron.  Always the fastest, most expensive cars (this one tops the list at $1.7M), seems to be a pattern here.  (This also reminds me that it is impossible to search for old wall posts, one of my biggest issues with facebook).

If you haven’t joined Groupon, click on over with my referral.  Disclaimer:  if you do join and purchase a Groupon, I got a whooping $10.  Woo hoo!!  Gotta afford my car habit somehow. smile_wink
