A Mystery Shopping Gig for You!

I think Mystery Shopping is so cool because you get paid to do what you would do anyway!  You go to restaurants, go to the airport, do things online, take your pet to the vet, go to get your car fixed and more.  Mystery shopping companies actually pay you to do all these things!

Want to get Food, Services, Entertainment and More for 50% Off?

Check out Scoutmob.com, Groupon.com and Ncrowd.com!  These are my favorite websites for restaurants, massages, manicures, pedicures and so much more!  I especially like Ncrowd because in addition to the 50% off, it has extra percentages off from time to time.  For example, on yesterday, they took an extra 40% off the restaurant certificates I purchased.

The Spa at ESI – Elaine Sterling Institute

I had heard of beauty schools that allow you to come in for services at a discount.  However, I was not aware that there were schools that were so fantastic that they would be on par with some of the best spas in the city!  I learned that when my beautiful husband and children surprised me with a day at the spa in celebration of my Birthday!  The Spa at ESI was absolutely fabulous!  The spa is beautiful and the staff is exceptional.  Plus….. they have awesome prices!  Check them out at http://spaatesi.com/.

The RetailMeNot App and Website

I absolutely love RetailMeNot!  I discovered it in November of last year while researching an article.  You can download the app right to your cell phone!  What is so wonderful is that you can be standing in a restaurant, retail store, pharmacy, theme park, etc. and pull up a coupon or coupon code to get an immediate discount on your purchase.  It is so cool and has saved me so much money!  Please go to www.retailmenot.com.
