Have you ever had a groupon/living social that's been really good?

This seems too good to be true. An elemis facial, body scrub and wrap for £28 lasting nearly two hours. How can they do that? It doesn't seem feasible for them.

Not S&B but I got six months of Code School for $69 instead of $174 and it was legit. And awesome.

Er, I'm not actually American but for some reason all code talking is yankified in my brain.

I think it's just considered as marketing spend ie if people go along on the cheap rates and like it, they will become customers and go back and pay normal rates in future

I bought a family photography session, it was £15 for a one hour shoot and 8 prints. Of course they tried to sell us more and it was hard to resist, but we did and got nice family photos out of it. Very good value.

We have also booked a studio recording session for dsd and 8 friends for her birthday, it's like a party really, should be good fun. It was £40 includes 2 hours in the studio, photos and cd.

Oh sorry blush just realised this is in s&b! Obviously neither of my examples are either.

Have had 2 really good cut and highlights for £24 and a cut only for£12. Just bought another cut and highlight one.

Am too tight to pay full price!

Three years ago I visited a hairdresser for cut and colour for about £30, loved the stylist and have gone back every 3 months since! I would never have visited there otherwise. So I agree that the repeat business they may get is worth it.

I've never had an elemis facial so I'm looking forward to it
