The first Vegas discount up for grabs? A one-night stay at The Palms starting from $89 plus a mysterious "gaming credit" of unstated value and two breakfast buffets. Ummm, okkkay. So, just $10 cheaper than the host of other packages found on The Palms' own website? Sorry, but we can't be the only ones not very excited about this, right? We'd really rather skip the credit and pass on the buffet to knock that rate down even more.
Slowly rolling out to cities across the US, Groupon Now is aimed at saving you time and money by showing you where to find steals, right now. The catch is that the deal is for that day only and during a very specific window of time. There are ten different categories of offers ranging from "Eat Something" to "See a Show," but you won't find restaurants like I ♥ Burgers or even Sugar Factory nor shows like Absinthe here. Actually, you'll be hard-pressed to find anything you've heard of before.
"Eat Something" currently offers deals for Bootlegger Bistro (which we know) as well as Angelina's Italian Grill, Mixed Nuts, Farmer Boys, Fresh Grill, Las Vegas Hot Sauce Company and Sicily's Pizza (which we don't). Savings range from $5 to $15 off, but most of the locations will require a cab ride or a rental drive from The Strip -- stripping you of any savings, and likely then some.
For "See a Show," you're just off Las Vegas Boulevard, but you'd better love to light the corners of your mind 'cause your only option (right now) is 'Barbra and Frank: The Concert That Never Was' at the Westin Casuarina.
The remaining categories offer more of the same making Groupon Now something that we'd rather Groupon Later. Will you give either a try? Let us know why or why not in the comments below!
