When sites like Groupon, LivingSocial, and Google Offers came out, it was a godsend for those looking to do an activity or shop for something on the cheap side. I have used these services so far for restaurants, recreation, and shopping. The economic downturn has caused more people to be frugal with their money and no one is willing to let go more than what they are willing to pay if it isn’t a good deal.
I have written many times how being a collector of anything can be overwhelming and expensive. Imagine my surprise when my older sister brought to my attention a deal in shopping for comics on Google Offers. Did I hear right? Am I dreaming? Nope, it’s all true. Google Offers had a deal a few weeks ago to purchase a “$10 for $20 of comics, graphic novels, collectables & more” at my local comic book store Forbidden Planet. As soon as I saw the offer I purchased it straightaway. No one had to tell me twice to do it.
It’s so rare for me to shop for manga these days and this deal is the one I’ve been looking for. At least if I go over by a little using this deal then the difference I pay won’t be too much. You have to find the best ways to be cheap and to save money.
I haven’t used my deal yet, but I have until August to make my purchases with it. I love an excuse to shop on the cheap side. Has anyone experienced a good deal they couldn’t refuse?
