GROUPON Your Life!

IMG_6692

The number one great unifier of all entrepreneurs, freelancers and up-and-comings is the need for affordable health coverage. If we haven’t dealt with it ourselves, we’ve had a dear friend lament their lack of healthcare and their forgone checkups, and even trips to the emergency room. I don’t mean to enter the complexities of the argument in American Health Care here, I am merely on a mission to share with you an incredible life hack that I’ve just been taught: How to GROUPON Your Life!

I was openly complaining in the office about having to book a dental cleaning for what was sure to cost me no less than $300 with my lack of dental coverage. (I should say here that I thank my lucky stars and moons {and my dear boss and mentor} everyday that I have medical insurance). When my friend and co-worker told me to use GROUPON.

Oh, you mean the online coupon website featuring two $100 massages for the price of one and 87% off wine of the month club memberships? Yes.

Apparently, what I happily discovered upon further investigation, GROUPON offers full dental check-ups including x-rays and cleaning for a fraction of what it would cost to walk into your regular dentist (you know, the one you haven’t seen since your insurance ran out two years ago…). I found a GROUPON for a dentist’s office around the corner from my house in Brooklyn that offered a consultation, cleaning and x-ray for $60.

That’s right, folks. An amount of money small enough to pay in cash.

Of course, I did a quick YELP search to ensure that this outpost was reputable and hygienic and when I felt confident enough that I was getting the DEAL OF THE CENTURY I bought the GROUPON, called the office and made an appointment with the effusively kind and helpful receptionist.

I encourage all of you to check out GROUPON for those practical never-thought-it-could-be-possible deals like this one. I sure plan to. And please let us know should you find any other life hack bargains on the site.

 

Happy Weekend! I’m off to Las Vegas for the week and will return with my photo round-up next Friday!
