Deals

Looking for local deals? Check these websites for all kinds of savings, all over DC.

Certifikid – This is THE deal site for parents in the Washington, DC-Metro area (and Baltimore, Philly, & Pittsburgh, too).  Every single discount offered has families in mind — you can find classes, birthday parties, eateries, kids activities and entertainment, camps, and much, much more at significantly reduced costs.

LivingSocial – One of the original deal sites, they offer discounts on everything from restaurants to salons to home goods and services, including deals on classes and camps for kids, activities and adventures for the whole family, and services that parents will appreciate, like photo sessions and tutoring.

Groupon – Another original, their offers run the local gamut — eateries, classes, services, museums — and they’ve also had several “no-brainer” national deals for stores that many parents patronize, like Amazon.com, Old Navy, and Gap.

Ebates – So this one isn’t actually a DC deal site, but it’s definitely one to bookmark, especially if you regularly shop online. You get cash back on purchases, anywhere from 3-10% (possibly more if there’s a daily double), from just about every store imaginable on the Internet. It can add up when you get the quarterly payout!

Goldstar – Specializing in savings on entertainment, I recommend always checking this site before purchasing tickets.  They often have steep discounts on theatre, tours, museum admission, and more. The catch is that it’s usually for select dates, but if you have an open calendar, you can snag a great deal.

ScoutMob – This is as much a must-download app as it is a go-to website. These “curious purveyors of local” scout out great small local businesses and offer discounts to many of them, and without a single catch. There’s no deal to buy, just have your phone handy with the ScoutMob promo, and you can save on everything from food to goods to events. The best part is that you can see what’s being offered near where you are in real time. Bottom line: Download now.

Plum District – Their “By Moms for Moms” slogan is apparent in their selection of deals from local and national merchants. Spas and salons, products for the home, goods for kids, and personal services are always on offer here.

ScoreBig – This online ticket outlet for live events — sports, music, theatre, and more — lets you propose a price on seats. They may or may not accept the offer, but when they do, you can potentially score really big.

The Capitol Deal – Brought to you by the Washington Post, they deliver discounts on local entertainment, dining, fashion, home, travel, and more.

Specialicious – Brought to you by Northern Virginia Magazine, these deals cover the same area as their content with discounts on all kinds of NOVA goods and services.

TRAVEL

Groupon Getaways – Most of the discounts are for hotels, inns, and resorts all over the world, including many that are family-friendly and some within driving distance of DC. Now and then, you can also find deals for air transportation on private planes.

SniqueAway – Save on luxury stays around the globe, including some relatively close to home for a weekend family getaway.

Jetsetter – You have to be invited in to this site offering savings on all kinds of adventures all over the world. Consider yourself my guest and sign up here.
