I was swamped with work the entire month of April. Actually, I was crazy busy in the office even before that time. We were handling five big events and my officemates and I were really having a hard time managing our time. Like it was beyond-what-our-human-bodies-could-take kind of thing already. There was just so much to do with so little time and energy from our part. We prepared early but it seemed all our preparations weren’t enough. After publishing my first weekend story for the month, I couldn’t get myself to publish the next ones so I decided to just publish them all in one go today. Yes, only today when I’m as free as a bird again, work wise.
I love great deals! When I see one, I examine it closely and when it’s as real as it looks, I buy it. Groupon (group coupon) sites have sprouted like wild mushrooms in Manila. Their marketing approach is very simple and straightforward. They make deals available in batches (100 to 3000 vouchers or more at any given time) and sell them to people online. It’s like having a personal shopper where good deals are laid on the table for your picking. Discounts can go as high as 80%. Payments are made thru credit cards, banks and even Paypal. The more you buy, the more you get to save money.
Among the many groupon sites today, I have become quite loyal to Ensogo Philippines (http://www.ensogo.com.ph). This groupon site that orginated in Thailand has many exciting offers to choose from and whose prices I find pocket-friendly. They have deals for everyone, from restaurant treats and travel packages to beauty and pampering services. I like that they come up with new offers sooner and the validity dates (the length of time you are allowed to use/avail a service) of their vouchers are longer that those offered by other groupon sites. Plus, you earn credits (1 point equals P1) in some of their deals which you could then use in your future transactions.
