What is today's New York City deal? Click "See Today's Deal" above to find out! You might find a deal that is just right for you.

Examples of past NYC deals offered through Groupon:

  • $25 All day bike rental from Central Park Bike Tours ($40 savings)
  • $39 for a ticket to "The 39 Steps" ($53 savings)
  • $20 for $10 worth of Food at John's Pizzeria of Bleeker Street

How It Works

A Groupon is like a coupon that has a minimum participation requirement. Think of it as a community discount. As long as enough people sign up, the deal is on! Each daily offer ends at midnight. If the deal goes through, you will be charged and sent a link where you can print out your groupon.

What happens if the deal doesn't go through? If not enough people sign up for the deal, the deal will be canceled and you will not be charged.

How Much Can You Save?

Groupon offers a different deal each day, but the savings are usually around 50%. Sometimes the deals are much better than that.

What We Like About Groupon

Groupon has a discussion board where you can ask any questions you might have about the Groupon and how it works. Individuals from either Groupon or the business offering the deal give you answers.

What To Watch Out For

Groupon offers great deals that can save you a lot of money. But do read the fine print (conveniently labeled "The Fine Print"), especially noting expiration dates, to make sure the deal is right for you.

What We Like About

We started using years ago on a friend's recommendation. Since then, we have bought several restaurant gift certificates. Using has allowed us to eat out at restaurants we normally wouldn't choose because of the prices. We've found the website easy to use and we've never had a problem using the gift certificates. This website is a great way to make expensive NYC restaurants a little more affordable!

What to Watch Out For

There is usually a minimum purchase required so check for that and other conditions below the gift certificate selection box.
