Groupon - review

I do like a good bargain and you will often find me with coupons hanging from my purse and printed discount codes in my bag. When Groupon offered me a £40 voucher I was keen to give their services a go to find out what offer I could snap up!

Registering with Groupon is very easy, it's literally just a case of filling in your details, and there is even an app for your phone so you can view the daily deals while on the move too.  Each day there are a selection of limited deals available including hotel stays, pamper days, products and experiences to enjoy with savings off up to 70%.

Being conscious about my weight and wanting to shred a few pounds stone for Christmas I settled with a fortnights supply of Boossh, a meal replacement plan, for £40 but worth £92.40

At the end of the deal, later that day, I received an email confirmation of my order with a code to redeem the offer online with Boossh's website. Picking my meals and arranging delivery was simple and the code supplied worked with no issues. I was pleased by how quick and easy the transaction had been.

The Boossh pack arrived a few days later and I began the plan. I imagine for those that want to lose a lot of weight quickly it is superb as it provides a very low amount of calories but all the right nutrients your body requires.  All of the packets are powder/dry form and the milkshakes, being a favourite, come in a variety of flavours including mango and chocolate mint. None of the packets are particularly filling -but no pain no gain, although I did notice weight loss quite quickly which was pleasing.  In the long run I didn't feel this was the solution for me so after the two week plan I went back to normal meals, just reducing my portion sizes. I did however feel fuller quicker which was a bonus!

Groupon currently have some lovely gift ideas available including a Spa break to Fawsley Hall. This offer includes an overnight stay, full English breakfast and use of the spa facilities for two people for just £95 - a saving over £150! You can search offers by location to see what is nearby to you.

I would use this service again  (hint hint to the Mr on the spa trip!).
