I had to stop myself from spending almost $200 on a great deal. Main reason...I didn't know enough about the deal to insure that the deal was all it was cracked up to be. (Let's just gloss over the spending of $200.....)
Groupon had a deal this weekend for $89 for $1125 worth of laser hair removal (3 sessions). You were allowed to buy up to 2 deals, which would have been $178 for 6 sessions, values at $2250. It was 92% off!!
C'mon....92% off is a GREAT, INCREDIBLE deal!!!! And I talked about my need for hair removal already (albeit, it is fantasy land and something that I want to do when we have goo gobs of discretionary income).
I didn't go for it though. In the end, I didn't know enough about the process that I was secure that 6 sessions would have an impact on my life. What if I got there and they said I needed 50 sessions? In that case, 6 wouldn't do squat. A medical consult was $100 (and half would be credited toward the sessions...which confused me). So I just added another $50-$100 off the bat.
As much as I would LOVE to do this...until I do all my homework, no money will be spent. I am considering having a consult somewhere (preferably a FREE consult), just to get an idea what I am getting into. If they said 6 sessions will be enough to do XYZ, and I am happy with that...then if the deal comes back around, I will revisit the idea.
But for now....a-plucking I will go.
