By no means am I a frugal blogger. I’m not a deal blogger, either. But I consider myself fairly frugal, and boy hidee, do I love a good deal. That’s why I’m excited about this new widget I’ve got over here on my sidebar for the Savvy Savings and Scholarship Program. They’ve just launched a savings program similar to Groupon for the Indianapolis area.
This is the very first week of the program in Indianapolis, and they have a doozy of a deal: 50% off a Family Membership to The Children’s Museum! We adore The Children’s Museum and visit often, making it worth every penny of the full-price membership. If you’ve yet to join, you’ll never see a better deal than this.
The difference between this program and other online deal programs is that Savvy Savings primarily offers deals targeted at families. Think museums and fun things to do with the kids as opposed to Brazilian blowouts and bar tabs. Not that I don’t love those things, too (ahem). The other difference in the Savvy Savings program is that for every deal purchased, Savvy Savings and Scholarships donates 5% of the purchase to a local preschool of the purchaser’s choice and 5% to a preschool scholarship fund.
You can either click on the widget or click here to have the weekly deal sent straight to your inbox. If you have a blog yourself and are interested in being a partner, let me know and I’ll help get you signed up. If you’re not in the Indianapolis area and you’d like to participate, you may still be in luck. Savvy Savings also operates in Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Dallas/Ft.Worth, Denver, Houston, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Tampa. I’m sure if you bug them enough, they’ll be glad to set something up in your city as well. You know, squeaky wheel and all.
And in the spirit of full disclosure, yes – if you sign up either for the weekly e-mails or as a partner, I do benefit. But I do so love a good deal, and can’t stop myself from sharing a bargain when I see one.
