You know me: I can’t resist a bargain, especially when it comes to eating out. I was delighted to learn that Groupon (everyone’s favorite group sale site) has launched Groupon Reserve. Now I can nab last-minute discounts at some of the very best restaurants in town, at savings of up to 40%!
"As Groupon has evolved, we've seen growing demand from our customers for upscale offers and exclusive experiences. Reserve gives the most prestigious brands a new way to reach our large and desirable audience," says Groupon CEO Eric Lefkofsky. "Whether it's because of a slow night or a last minute no-show, even the best restaurants have empty tables," Lefkofsky points out." Reserve provides them (a way) to bring customers through their doors at the times they need them the most." In the future, Reserve will also allow customers to reserve top-tier travel, entertainment, spas, salons and hotels.
I like that the Groupon Reserve gives customers a discount off their entire check without requiring pre-payment or vouchers. I plan to use Reserve when we travel as well. In addition to DC, Reserve is available in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles (Chaya Brasserie!), Miami (Bistro Moderne!), New York City (Le Cirque!!!), Philadelphia, and San Francisco.
