GrouponIt’s the final day in the “24 Days of Holiday Giveaways”! Today’s prize is a $25 gift certificate to Groupon.com.

Groupon brings us daily discounts to local and national businesses. These discounts are usually 50-90 percent off the retail price. When you find a deal you want, you purchase it online and Groupon emails you a voucher to redeem your purchase.

Their deals include restaurants, retail stores, salons, photography, and more! They have teamed up with Expedia and now offer Groupon Getaways. Read my previous post, “Travel for Less – Groupon Getaways with Expedia,” for more info.

Groupon also offers Groupon Goods (in select locations). Groupon Goods are deals for specific items versus a store credit. To learn more, read my post “Groupon Expands to Include Product Deals: Groupon Goods.”

If you win today’s prize, you can use your Groupon credit for any city and any deal. Here are some of the deals available today:

  • $10 for $20 Worth of Last-Minute Gifts, Apparel and Accessories at Old Navy
  • Gourmet Meat Package with Included Shipping (Up to 64% Off) from Omaha Steaks. Four Options Available.
  • $20 for Pair of 2XL Groove Earbuds and 2XL Shakedown Headphones with Free Shipping from Skullcandy ($48.98 Value)

Groupon Getaways

Looking for a vacation while saving money? Check out Groupon Getaways. Groupon and Expedia have joined forces to offer their subscribers weekly travel deals. The travel deals are announced every Tuesday and will be available for one week or until the deal sells out.

You can find Groupon Getaways in the header bar on the top of the page:

Groupon has travel experts who research each deal; thus, each hotel is thoroughly reviewed and additional things to do are suggested for each getaway. According to Groupon, these getaway deals are the best prices available for the resorts who participate in this program.

Right now there are 29 travel destinations offered through Groupon–including locations such as New Jersey, Nevada, Florida, Mexico, Ontario, and more! As of now, the offers available have from one to five days left to purchase.

If you’re looking for a getaway that’s driving distance from home, consider The Cove of Lake Geneva in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Groupon has three options:

  • For $115, a one-night stay for up to two adults in an Anchor suite from August 17, 2011 to September 1, 2011 (excluding weekends)
  • Or, for $75, a one-night stay for up to two adults in an Anchor suite from September 6, 2011 to May 24, 2012
  • Or, for $115, a one-night stay for up to two adults in an Anchor suite from May 29, 2012 to August 31, 2012 (excluding weekends)

With 787 already purchased, this deal is on (a limited quantity is available, so act fast if this interests you). As I said, this is just one of 29 travel deals available today. Groupon and Expedia have done the work for us! On a side note, if you’re doing a day trip to Lake Geneva, check out their recommendations under the deal description–there are some great suggestions of things to do in the area.
