Stretch Your Wallet With These 6 Local Groupons

As college students, we are all united by two mutual interests: fun stuff, and cheap stuff. Luckily, we live in a techno-savvy age, and there’s a website for that. Groupon is a site that offers discounts on “restaurants, fitness, travel, shopping, beauty and more.” You can buy the offer when it's discounted, and it usually doesn’t expire for at least a couple months. Groupon is the only way I’ve been able to afford the finer things in life (AKA massages) as a broke college student. Pro tip: never pay full price, even for a Groupon. Their website has multiple sales a week where they discount their discounts. Life is good.

Here are 6 of the best in the Davidson area right now.

Thai House


This deal gives you a $40 gift card for only $24. There are some more options for this restaurant, too, but this is the least expensive.

Davidson Pizza Company


For just $18, you can get $30 worth of pizza and other late night munchie goodies.

Massage Advantage


This spa is running a special for a 60-minute massage and a stress and muscle evaluation for $39. We’re Davidson students, we’re stressed, i.e. we need massages. It’s just common sense.

Race City Escape Rooms


If you’ve never done an escape room, this is your opportunity to hop on the trendy-alternative-going-out bandwagon. Deals start at $40 for two people.

The Range at Lake Norman


This might be the perfect way to alleviate stress. For just $29 (for two people), you can tape up your last review and fire some bullets through it. You’ll feel much less likely to glare at your teacher from the back of the classroom, guaranteed.

Piedmont Skydiving


This one is definitely still a splurge at $179, but if you’re like me this is a small price to pay to knock something off your bucket list. You’ll no doubt feel like a badass returning to campus with your windblown hair.
