GrouponGroupon has three fun offers today–okay, maybe just two are fun, but the third is a necessity.

The first is $20 worth of baked goods from the retail counter at Pancake Cafe in Fitchburg. Yum! The Pancake Cafe is one of my favorite places to eat breakfast. The Pancake Cafe is located at 6220 Nesbitt Road–this offer is not valid for dine-in.

The second Groupon posting today is $8 for $20 worth of merchandise at The Pipefitter at 520 State Street. You have one year to use your Groupon and it’s valid for in-store purchases only. This certificate cannot be used toward tobacco or any tobacco-related products or sale items.

The last new offer is an oil change with a 30-point inspection for $16 at Douglas American Car Care Center in Reedsburg. Although this isn’t as fun, it’s something we all need to do to take care of our cars. So, if you’re in the Reedsburg area, this deal might be good for you! If you buy this deal, you will save $16 the next time you need an oil change.

Another thing to keep in mind is teacher gifts. The end of the year is fast approaching and you might find a great certificate for the teachers in your life.
