3 Things I Would Never Buy Off Groupon
I was perusing Groupon last night and as I looked at all the amazing deals I realized there are a few things I don't think anyone should ever consider getting off Groupon. Those things being:
1 - A Tattoo: Don't get me wrong, I love a great bargain but this is not something I want to be cheap about. Do you really think a $50 back piece is going to look quality?! Don't think so! This will be on me for the rest of my life so this is one thing I will pay the big bucks for. All about the quality on this one.
2- A Wedding Photographer: So I see lots of Groupon deals for portrait sessions. Okay, great! Photography can be expensive so I am all about people going for the deal here. There are more and more photogs emerging everyday so good photographers are offering deals to get more business. Or maybe a newbie is trying to break into the business. So there is potential to get a great photographer for a deal. BUT I said POTENTIAL, which means you could end up with someone who has no idea what they are doing which is why they need to have a Groupon deal to get business. Which is why I would NOT go this route for wedding photography. If a regular portrait session is botched you could always do another but you cannot relive and re-photograph your wedding.
3- Botox Injections: This is not something I ever see myself getting but if it was I do not think this is something I would look for a deal on. It might just be me but when I see 70% off botox injections I would be petrified I'd come out looking like Bruce Jenner, just saying. I would definitely want a top notch place with my face being on the line.
All this being said, I LOVE Groupon and have gotten some great things at great prices but there's just this handful of items I would be too nervous to buy at a discount. Do you agree or am I being paranoid?!
