If you haven’t been introduced to social online group discounts, now is the time. If you are traveling to Hawaii with a group of friends, then you are a prime candidate for group online coupon sites.
You have probably heard of Groupon.com and if you are visiting Honolulu then you will probably want to check out their Hawaii coupons. The biggest drawback to these types of deals, is that most of them are time sensitive and usually only offer a limited number or deals. For instance, Groupon has a daily deal, if you don’t like the daily deal you have to wait till the next day. But… If you are spontaneous and flexible, there are great deals to be had. You can get anywhere from 20% to 90% off of restaurant tabs, Maui whale watching tours, Kauai helicopter tours, spa packages.
Another great site is LivingSocial.com. Living Social is great for a group of friends that can all have separate accounts. Much like Groupon, they offer great daily deals, but they also have a pyramid type of scheme going on. If you get three of your friends to buy a specific deal, then you get the item for free! For example, say you want to play golf at a course that normally is $100 – Living Social might offer you a $50 discount. You get your three buddies to buy the deal, you get yours free, and your foursome is teeing off for $150, not $400.
Similar to coupon clipping, it may not be your favorite brand on sale, but if you are willing to bend and be creative, you can definitely find some great ways to save a buck or two on your Hawaiian vacation.
