A Plan

Inspiration – Motivation – Insights into life – That is what my blog has been about since its beginning and will continue to be. But today I’d like to change tack a bit and tell you about something I’ve found that may be of interest to you (and may, very well, NOT be of interest in the slightest).

You’ve probably heard of “Groupon.” It is the latest in advertising venues. Coupons with huge discounts are sent, via email, to anyone who signs up. It saves merchants tons on advertising, guarantees that the advertising they purchase actually brings in customers, and saves customers lots of money. It’s a win-win-win concept (Groupon is the third “win”).

But the second generation of the concept is about to be born. In this one the third “win” is shared with the customer! Not only does the customer have the opportunity to receive coupons for 50%-60% off from local merchants and restaurants, he also receives 5% of his purchase price back in cash. AND 5% of the purchases anyone he or she has signed up to receive the coupons. It’s really a pretty cool idea. I’ve signed up our church to be the recipient of those 5% purchases you might make – a no sweat fund raiser. Right now it is only operating in California as its being tested but will be going national in the next few months. So sign up now if it sounds like something you’d be interested in. Here is the link:
