Every girls wants to look fabulous. Nowadays we can do so many different facial treatments, manicures, pedicures, injections, lifting…so the only constraint is the money that we want to spend!
Coupon websites exist since a couple of years. If you don’t know what it is, the concept is pretty simple. The website managers search for interesting offers and deals and offer them to clients that visit their website. The process is beneficial for everyone: for the website owners as they have their share, for the end clients because they can enjoy the discount and for the managers of the services because they can attract new clients. Everyone is happy! Or at least, they should be. As sometimes it doesn’t always go as planned! If you’re still hesitant on whether to try it or not, you can read this article as it may help you make your decision!
So what can go wrong for you as a client? Let’s say you bought a coupon for 50% discount for manicure. You have to understand one thing: this business is beneficial for everyone, do you really think the beauty salon’s managers would agree to offer this deal if it was not profitable for them? Of course not! This is a great way for them to attract new clients and promote their business and they “pay” for that with their discount!
In France we had a special restaurant card that let us have 50% discount in the restaurants participating in this program. So once we were in a restaurant like this and I must tell you, it was one of the best restaurants we were in a long time. The food was great, the portions were big, the staff was very friendly, the chef came to see us if we liked everything and the restaurant owner himself came to check on us. Of course, after we were done we told all our friends and family about this place as it was really good. And this is exactly the effect that they’re trying to achieve! We talked with the owner and asked him why he decided to participate. His answer explained a lot, he said: “I am very confident about my food, meals and ideas. It’s just we’re not very well known yet and I want to attract new clients”. I think this place is a lot harder to get in now!
It sounds really good of course but not places are the same. Sometimes you don’t feel treated well enough. Or sometimes the service is just bad, and I wouldn’t go there again even for free. So how to make sure you’re going to the right place?
- First you should understand that coupons are beneficial for all the participants, you don’t have to feel guilty (and sometimes you can have that feeling as the prices are really low sometimes),
- Always read reviews! If there are a lot of bad ones, it’s better not to go.
- And the most important one: always leave reviews after you’ve used a coupon! That way you could help many other people to make the right choice! Say everything you want and be sincere!
