How-To Groupon Like A Boss In Macomb County! How I Spent 3 Groupons In One Day And Had A Very Frugal Day!

I will admit that I do check the Groupon site often for good deals. If I see a good deal that is just way too good to pass up, then you better believe it, I will grab that Groupon! Yesterday I managed to have quite a frugal day with 3 Groupons. I had a fun-filled day with some good sweets and treats, and a dinner to go along with it! Groupons geared towards dining are always a great way to experience something new and give it a whirl! These Groupons allow you to enjoy food and drink at a deeply discounted price.

This Groupon post is going to cover restaurants that are in the Southeast area of Michigan. I will share with you how you can score some great deals at these Michigan establishments. I am sharing how I Groupon’ed like a boss and had an incredibly delicious FRUGAL day!

How Groupon Works

Groupon is very easy to use. For the purpose of this post, I will only be sharing how to use the dining Groupons. There are many other types of Groupons available though! You simply head on over to the Groupon site or download the app. Choose the LOCAL tab at the top and find the Food & Drink category. Click onto that food & drink category and see what local Groupon deals are happening in your area.

How to get your Groupon

We just recently used a Buoy 12 Groupon this past weekend so I will use that as an example here. Buoy 12 is located in my area of St. Clair Shores, MI. They have two different offers available. One of those offers is for 2 people to receive a $25 voucher (currently sold out but keep checking back) or you can purchase a $50 voucher for four people at the discounted price of $30. So for $30 you get $50 worth of food on your next visit to Buoy 12. That is a discounted price of 40% off.

At time of publication (5/20/2019) you can use the Groupon coupon code SAVE3 to save even more!

Groupon coupon codes

BUT you can save even more if you have a Groupon coupon code, which is often available! Be sure to always check for Groupon coupon codes prior to checking out.

How to redeem your Groupon for dining

There are two ways you can present your Groupon when you are ready to redeem it. You can either print out the voucher on your printer at home OR you can download the Groupon app and show the server the Groupon on your mobile device.

Our first Groupon we spent was at Starbucks

I got quite lucky with the Starbucks Groupon. The Starbucks Groupons are only by invite-only. I spent $5 for the Groupon and ended up with $10 to spend at Starbucks.

Here is what I purchased at Starbucks: 1 S’mores Frappucino and 1 Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappucino.

I paid only $1.13 for two Frappucinos out-of-pocket. The Groupon was $5. So the total cost was $6.13. Not too shabby for two rather expensive frozen drinks! Starbucks is always just a fancy splurge item for me, so I appreciated that Groupon offer!

Second Groupon we used was at Sagano Japanese Steakhouse

Sagano Japanese Steakhouse currently has two different locations on Groupon: the Warren Japanese Steakhouse and the Clarkston Japanese Steakhouse location. We visited the Warren location so I will be reviewing that experience here.

Read the fine print

Please always read the fine print on Groupons! Sagano Japanese Steakhouse is a shining example of that! For example, you can not use a Groupon at Sagano within 24 hours of purchasing the Groupon. Also, there are menu restrictions on what exactly the Groupon can be used for. We found out the hard way these two things!

What we ordered at Sagano

At Sagano Japanese Steakhouse my husband and I ordered a cucumber sushi roll (please not that you can’t use the Groupon for sushi rolls here. We paid separate for the sushi), and we ordered the chicken teriyaki entree and the beef teriyaki entree. My husband, my daughter Chloe who is 9, and I shared the 2 entrees and that was plenty for the 3 of us. Our entrees came with a soup and a salad, which was wonderful and delicious! We were very pleased with our teriyaki dishes. They had had a great flavor and the portion size was perfect!

How we got the most out of our Sagano Groupon

We had the $30 Groupon for Sagano. The beef teriyaki was $16.95 and the chicken teriyaki entree was $12.95. Our $30 Sagano Groupon covered the cost of the two teriyaki entrees. Our cucumber sushi roll was $3.50 and then we had to leave a tip. I gave the waitress a great tip because she was absolutely awesome, I must say! We really felt that the service at Sagano was excellent.

The Sagano Groupon is PERFECT for HIBACHI!

The Sagano Japanese Steakhouse Groupon is perfect for giving the hibachi grill a whirl. This image below is of my scallop hibachi dish that I got on a previous visit to Sagano. My family of 3 were quite impressed with our hibachi dinners. When we dined at the hibachi grill on that visit we had a fantastic chef. He had a great sense of humor and was very entertaining. Of course there were big flames and an onion volcano and my daughter really enjoyed the theatrics of the Japanese chef that cooked our meals.

Here is the hibachi scallops at Sagano Japanese Steakhouse. You can use the Groupon for the hibachi grill.

And finally, for dessert, we used a Menchie’s Groupon

We are big fans of Menchie’s here in the Give It A Whirl Girl household so we could not pass this deal up! The Menchie’s Groupon is valid for two different locations: Warren and Shelby Township. The Menchie’s Groupon allows frozen yogurt enthusiasts (like me!) to purchase bundles of $5 Menchie’s vouchers for a discounted price.

2 $5 Menchie’s vouchers are $7

or 4 $5 Menchie’s vouchers are $14

Please be aware (and I found this out the hard way too because I skimmed over the fine print) that you can only use 1 $5 Menchie’s Groupon per visit!

Want to learn more about Menchie’s?

Read my Menchie’s Review on the blog!

If you are looking for a fun place to take the family for dessert, Menchie’s is the place to be! You are the creator of your frozen yogurt treat. Choose from several different frozen yogurt flavors and then top it all off at the unlimited toppings bar! Menchie’s charges by the ounce of your dessert creation, so if you want to keep the cost down don’t go too wild and crazy and keep your dessert down to a small or moderate size.

Pro Tip For Groupon! That is IF you are in the Southeast Michigan area

I am going to also let you know about one other FABULOUS GROUPON if you are local! That Groupon would be for Inyo Restaurant in Ferndale. If you are a sushi connoisseur like me you will absolutely love Inyo! You can see even more photos of this Asian fusion restaurant in my FAQ on the blog. Inyo Restaurant is currently in the top spot for my number one dining destination. You can score a tremendous deal to Inyo Ferndale on Groupon!

Final thoughts

I hope this post about Groupon dining will inspire you to give Groupon a whirl! There are so many restaurants that you can try out at a discounted price. This is a wonderful way to give some new establishments a whirl! My little family of 3 has discovered a ton of great places with Groupons and there are so many other places that we cannot wait to try! I have my eye on the Le Crepe Groupon.

Groupon is soooooo much more than just dining at restaurants! You can go scoop up some goods and take a trip with Groupon getaways!

The great thing about meal kit subscription boxes

There are a variety of benefits and perks to trying out these meal kit subscription boxes.

  • Convenience

First of all, these meal kits are super convenient! It doesn’t get any better than this folks… fresh food delivered straight to your door. You can skip the grocery store. You choose the day that you would like to receive your meal kit and it will show up at your doorstep!

  • Customizable

Secondly, these meal kit services are very customizable. They present to you a variety of different foods on the menu that you can select from. They also allow you to choose how many meals you want to receive for the week (usually 2-3 different meals), and they also allow you the opportunity to choose from a box for 2 people or for a family of 4 people

My favorite part about receiving these meal kits is that they inspire me to eat with an open mind. Many of the recipes that you can choose from are not only delicious but unique.

Here is another great thing about these food subscription boxes. I have tried many meal kits and found all of the recipes simple and easy to follow.

Sun Basket

You can read more about Sun Basket in my review on the blog.

I recently tried Sun Basket’s meal kit subscription box and I was very impressed with the recipes and the quality of the ingredients that were provided.

When I gave Sun Basket a whirl I went with the gluten-free paleo meal kit. Sun Basket is a subscription service that relies heavily on clean eating. They only send out high-quality organic ingredients for your meals. You can have a bit of peace-of-mind when you enjoy your Sun Basket meal because their ingredients are only sourced from the best. They will provide premium meat and seafood (antibiotic and hormone-free) and only the freshest organic produce.

They have a few different plans to choose from to suit your diet. Sun Basket has the following meal plans available: Mediterranean, paleo (gluten-free), and a vegetarian option.

Current deals on Sun Basket

Sun Basket currently has an offer where you can receive $80 off your first four orders. With this offer, you will receive $20 off your first four boxes of the Sun Basket meal kit subscription box.

If you want to try out Sun Basket for a 2 week trial period you can save $45 off your first two boxes of food. This is split into two tiers of savings. The first box is $35 off and the second meal kit will be $10 off.

Check out the photos below of the meals that I created with my Sun Basket meal kit subscription box.

HelloFresh was actually the first meal kit subscription box that I have ever tried. They are the brand that made me fall head over heels in love with meal kits. The meal kits from HelloFresh are always a joy to cook and they are a sure people pleaser at the dinner table. HelloFresh ships out only the freshest and finest ingredients for your recipes. I have found that they are one of the easiest meal kits to prepare at home.

HelloFresh offers three plans: Classic, Family, and Veggie. You can view the menus on their website and customize your meal kit.

How To Earn Money Shopping With The Ibotta Mobile App – The Sky Is The Limit With Ibotta’s Cashback Shopping! Find Out How I Earned Over $400 In 1 Year!

I downloaded the mobile app Ibotta in 2018 I have already earned well over $440 in cashback shopping rebates. The Ibotta mobile app is very simple to use once you get the hang of it. You simply download the app, “clip” your coupons, purchase those items, take a photo of the receipt once you get home (or provide your shopper’s card and let Ibotta do all the work for you), then the scan the items purchased (the camera on your smartphone scans the items), and redeem for a cashback rebate. The approval process for earning cashback is simple and offers get approved quickly and the money goes straight into your account. Once you earn $20 you can cash-out for gift cards or Paypal. Earning that 20 bucks is simple too!

I love using the Ibotta mobile app. Not only is it a wonderful way to save money on products that you already purchase but the app also gives you an incentive to try out new products. I have come across and discovered many great new products through the app. When I give these new products a whirl through the Ibotta app, I often become a regular buyer and regular customer if I enjoy the products!

Download the Ibotta app

First things first! You need to download the app to start earning money. The app is available in both app stores: Apple and Google Play.

When you use my code mohoyyu you can get $10 instantly loaded into your account.

What can I earn?

You need to earn at least $20 to cash out. If you use the code I posted above you start out at $10 and it is very simple to earn that $20 to cash out. You can cash out to receive Paypal money (which is often sent instantly) or you can cash out and receive gift cards to various stores like Amazon, Whole Foods, Target, Ulta, Ebay, Itunes, etc. They have a very large gift-card shop where you can withdraw your money earned. I usually just go with the Paypal option so I am free to choose my earnings however I like.

Start earning money

Start earning your dollars by selecting the store that you would like to shop at and start adding those items to your account.

Ibotta mobile app example:

You can earn $1.20 cash back on each Blue Bunny Load’d Sundae Cup at Kroger. You hit the plus button to add that offer to your account. You then purchase that item at the store. Once you are home with the purchased item hit the “Redeem” button in the lower center part of the screen. Select your store, in this case, Kroger. Make sure that your receipt falls into the required dates, then capture an image with your phone’s camera of the receipt. Make sure you finalize the process by submitting the receipt.

When you take a photo of the receipt you can tap the screen to make sure the image is in focus. The photo has to contain text that is readable. If you have a long receipt you can take photos with multiple photos of the sections.

The easiest option for earning cashback at the grocery store! This is a newer Ibotta feature!

You can also load your Kroger shopper’s card to your account so you do not have to take photos of the receipt. Ibotta will automatically credit your Ibotta account with each valid purchase.

Here is an example (edit to add: this is an older example) of a great way to earn some decent money in your account. Check out the Halo Top ice-cream offer in the photo below. You can purchase up to five pints of Halo Top and earn $1.50 cash back on each pint! That comes out to $7.50 if you purchase the max limit of 5. You can also see in the Hot Offers section of this photo that Olly vitamins and supplements are a simple $2 cashback transaction.

The cashback offers section of each store is broken down into categories as you can see in the photo below (this is not a current screenshot, this is a previous example that I saved). If you select a category the relevant items available will show up that you can load onto your account.

Each store has several different offers to choose from. Some offers have a very decent payout.

What I love about Ibotta is that the cashback gives me incentive to try new things.

I have discovered several new items through discovery on the mobile app Ibotta. While browsing the offers you may see plenty of items that you do not typically purchase. Don’t feel discouraged! When I am getting cash back to try out new items and get a discount on those items, I enjoy buying them and trying them out. Often times I end up becoming a repeat customer of these new items that I found out about through Ibottta.

Here are some more examples (these are current as on May 2019)

As long as you follow the instructions on the recipe card you will end up with a mindblowing meal that is so great you will wonder how you even accomplished it. The recipes are unique and inspire you to get out of a rut in the kitchen and whip up something with gourmet flavor. The prices are reasonable for what you get.

The meals, for me, always come out fantastic, like something you would order at a nice restaurant. I have never been let down or disappointed by any of my HelloFresh shipments.

HelloFresh REVIEW

Some meals are traditional fare but with a spin on it, like the meatloaf shown below. I never had meatloaf with any type of jelly on it but this was absolutely incredible and was one of my favorite HelloFresh boxes. That is exciting to me because I like to eat with an open mind. Never in my life would I have thought to put currant jam on meatloaf but it worked. That is the great thing about HelloFresh. This meatloaf tasted gourmet and I made it all by myself in the kitchen. It was simple too! All of the recipe cards are easy to follow.

HelloFresh offers a premium meal each month that is optional and does cost a bit more but it is so worth it. One week I went for the premium meal and ended up trying out duck breasts for the first time in my life. I was not sure if I would like them or not but it turned out to be one of the best meals I ever made.
