Truth is I don’t usually mention deals here on Free From Broke, but this deal was pretty popular last year and Groupon is running it again this year.
Here’s today’s deal:
$25 for $50 worth of clothing and accessories from American Apparel Online and In-Store (you pick whether online or in-store).
$50 for $100 worth of clothing and accessories from American Apparel In-Store.
Groupon deals tend to be for local stores and activities but occasionally they roll out a national deal. This particular deal is limited to one per person, for U.S. residents only. You can buy an additional Groupon as a gift.
This Groupon is running from November 27 through December 5th, 2012.
The deal is valid in all U.S. stores and outlets (sorry Canada). It expires February 3rd, 2013. It’s not valid on sale items, Multibrand, Vintage items, or gift cards.
American Apparel makes clothing basics and all of their clothes are produced in the United States, sweatshop-free.
(Note: Their marketing has a tendency to be racy to say the least, a little NSFW even, so if that bothers you you have been warned.)
One gripe of daily deals sites is if you don’t use your deal you lose it. Some people forget they even bought a deal. But with the holidays coming up fast you should easily be able to find ways to use your deal for gifts.
At this time of the year being able to stretch your money a little further is an awesome thing!
How does Groupon work?
After signing up for Groupon (basically giving them your email if you aren’t already signed up), you select the deal and pay for it. They will give you a coupon to print out or a code to use at checkout.
I’ve used Groupon a number of times and haven’t had any problems. When redeeming at stores, you show them the Groupon and they apply the discount.
When you go to the American Apparel site, use the code you are given to receive the $25 for $50, or $50 for $100 worth of goods.
Make sure to see the details of the offer if you have any questions about the offer’s use.
For the third year now, Groupon is celebrating Grouponicus. It’s a week-long event where they select special deals that are awesome to get as gifts. They understand people are gearing up for the holidays.
The American Apparel deal is part of the celebration.
Make sure you check back on Groupon all week to see what else they offer.
