FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. - Thanks to a new website, Southwest Floridians could start saving big bucks. All you have to do is log online and buy a groupon!
A one-night stay for two, bottle of champagne, and beach activities for just 79 dollars?! It normally costs more than 300 bucks... but that's just one of many deals you can get by logging on to groupon.com. The website negotiates huge discounts on just about everything... and for Island Hideway - it is ideal.
"It's great for business owners like myself who don't have a high advertising budget but you want to get word of mouth out... and that's what we're looking for - someone to come here, experience what we have and go refer their friends and family."
Red Salon and Spa was already featured on the website selling a massage or facial for 39 dollars. That's half the price!
But if you want in on a deal, you have to be quick. Most specials are only posted for a few days, but after you buy the groupon, you can use it anytime. The one for Island Hideway doesn't expire for another year.
"It looks like it's going to be a really great response."
In two years, more than 15 million groupons have been sold - that's 670 million dollars in savings!
"Go buy your groupons!"
They are called groupons because a group of people have to buy them for the deal to go through - it's how the businesses are able to make up the difference for having such a good deal.
