Okay fine, it’s not a smart sounding post as it may sound, haha
Let me introduce to you to some group buys/ discount sites! Ever since it first emerged, I’ve been somewhat intrigued by the discounted offers. As most would know, I’m a sucker for a good bargain, and granted some of these sites do offer just that – I’ve bought ‘quite’ a bit too date. Dont ask how many, I think we can afford to eat out every weekend for the next few months, ahem. Some expired before I could even use it (see that’s one problem with buying vouchers, you tend to procrastinate and wait till the last minute and before you know it it’s expired, or is it just me?) while the rest I finally got to redeem two weeks ago.
Suchan Deal By Super Deals
That’s right, the brat is wearing shoes thesedays
I love the pink/blue combo and the entire feel to her outfit – she looks like a very cute dancer, hehe
Outfit: Gift from hubby’s aunt – Disney bought in Guam. Believe it or not, it’s tagged as 0-3 months! Oh my baby is so petite.
Somehow the headband I got customized totally matched the outfit, haha
Ooo ma let me seeee
Went there with Wylane and Jove. Both officially MARRIED now And living in UK. I miss them! And I officially dont have friends no more
Ok enough photos of us. Onto the deal. The hubby paid RM30 each (the deal is worth RM60) and this is what we got
Salad – not a big fan of salads but this was pretty yummy
Salmon pasta – we decided to go with the most expensive pasta. The other two choices were vegetarian pastas – MEH
And a cake each – mine was Red Velvet – OBVIOUSLY! A bit on the hard side, don’t know why
While the hubster had banoffee pie - now this was pretty good!
Was it worth it? Well kinda. For the size of cake we had and pasta (which is worth RM 20 on the menu). Though I highly doubt the entire deal was worth RM60 each. Approx Rm50++ maybe.
(P.s: it seems like this deal is on another group-buy site now – buy here )
Duduk Cafe by Groupon Malaysia
I paid RM35 for TWO for this deal that is worth RM75.
We start off with photos of the brat who was misbehaving by throwing her toys onto the floor before proceeding to cause a ruckus in the restaurant, lol life with a baby I tell you….
Yes I’m very naughty today!! What you going to do about it old lady?
Strawberry shake for the hubby (please dont judge) and toffee nut milkshake for me.
A gourmet chicken burger each with yummy fries
Happy over free cheap lunch
Though the settings of the restaurant was pretty minimal, our burger and shakes were pretty good. But to be honest I wouldn’t pay RM75 for it no matter how gourmet-ish the burger can be.
Some of the other noteable redeemed discounts were a 1 kg chocolate cake from Sinfully Chocolate bought from Mydeal.com.my , Bread Basket voucher for two at Milkadeal.com, two buckets of ice cream from Milkadeal.com and the Yogitree Organic food in Gardens bought from DealMates.com (for my parents!) which was totally totally worth it!! I got a massage voucher for the husband sometime back and he enjoyed it.
To date I”ve only had ONE bad experience with a hair salon which refused to speak in engrish, refused to give me the 50% offer on chemical work and on top of that made my mom wait 30 minutes before telling her she didn’t have an appointment (when infact I called and asked and they said no need appointment). Rest assured, I did file in a complain to that group buy site. I guess it’s 50-50 where service and a good deal is concerned. I try to stay away from the discounted facials/mani-pedi and obscure hair saloons because I dont believe I will get good service from paying very little. Plus most of the comments I read are pretty negative.
Overall, with groupbuys some people have bad experiences, while some are good. Always try to look out for noteable restaurants. And redeem your vouchers as soon as you can, the longer you wait, you will not be served properly because a million other people will be calling in to claim their vouchers (okay look who’s talking!) And FYI – there are over 30 group discount sites in Malaysia alone!! I wonder how long this thing will work until people get sick of it.
Next up to redeem sometime soon - Russian food, Middle Eastern food and Opus Bistro in Bangsar. I even got discounted movie vouchers AND popcorns for my parents. Amazing eh?
Told you I have issue with anything online-related If you can sell em online, chances are I’ve already bought it
Now go check them out!!! Sharing IS caring, and let’s save some $ at the same time my friends :D
