Remember when Groupon first became popular? It was awesome. And Living Social was pretty cool too. I bought coupons to my favorite restaurants and didn’t bother with a gym membership because I could get in on every barre method/cycling/pilates/cowbell class in LA.
Now I delete the daily Groupon/Living Social/Life Booker/ almost immediately without even seeing what it is. It’s mainly all garbage now. No, I don’t want 75% off of the spooky Indian restaurant on Pico. And no, I don’t want a 2 for 1 botox (if anything is touching my face it will not be a discounted, back office special).
But yesterday, in a moment of utter boredom, I checked out the daily special.
Who needs college?!!! Groupon now offers training courses in various fields. For only $148 you can take an online course and exam to become a certified personal trainer.
I can sit on my couch, eat a grilled cheeze and become an expert in health and fitness? Fantastic.
God Bless America.
