Group buying and daily deals are all the rage now. One of the newest is Mamapedia, a site dedicated to finding family-friendly deals from restaurants to children’s museums to spa days. Their list of cities is growing, and it is free to sign up for their updates. My city actually has four deals today. It also appears that a number of the deals are “national deals” so even if your city is not listed, you can take advantage of the online specials.
I plan on signing up for my own city as well as a few others that are within driving distance. It’s the perfect way to save money on mini vacations for long weekends like President’s Day or school breaks where we can’t afford a big vacation.
