Look what happened now...
I sorta took the day off today. I did billing, returned emails, calls, etc. But also tried to get the last minute details cleared out for the Austin trip & began packing. Also did manage to catch a good sale via Hotwire on hotels in New Orleans.
This Austin trip is my 1st using Groupon. I see their awesome deals all the time but hesitate to try. Heard some really horrible stories via the business end from merchants being overrun with coupons and loosing their shirts. My profit margin is too close to even consider such, WTF!
But one of my buddies uses them all the time and swears by it, so am going to give it a go. But actually we are off to a bad start. I purchased this deal in Feb and booked and had to reschedule due to work. (I really can’t just take off whenever I want regardless of what you may have heard. The boss works the hardest of all) But to their credit the hotel was friendly and made a change no problem. But the next days I wanted where in their blackout dates, uh oh--but they honored the coupon after the closing date. (not blackout) But we shall see when I am there. I try to prepare for things when I travel, but also expect the best too. CYA and all will be well.
