Last minute bargains from Groupon

Boot Camp feature for Monday, December 20, 2010

    Unique last minute gifts at bargain prices.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Groupon has become one of the big online success stories of the year.     The site works with merchants in about 300 markets so far…to offer steep discounts for a variety of products and services.   It turns out, lots of people like the idea of saving lots of money.   Justin Schumann is what the company calls a Grouponcierge…. helping people find the right stuff to buy.   And for the holidays, he says,  the place to turn for last minute bargains is the Grouponicus store…

If someone bought you a present and you haven’t bought one for them yet, you just go online to the Groupon.com, select buy as a gift, you can email it to them directly and it will show up in their email inbox.  Or you can print it out and wrap it up.  The neat thing is the value is the only thing listed on that voucher.   The price you pay for it is not listed.”

For a chance to win a 25 dollar Groupon gift card, pay us a visit at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
