How to Pamper Yourself with a Monthly Budget of as Little as $80 Through Sites like Scoopon

Posted by on May 26, 2016 at 8:18 AM

You’ve seen the famous TV shows which encapsulate the highlife-living wives in places such as Orange County in the USA, but most of us assume it’s not possible to pamper ourselves like that each month. Well, I did some digging online with the help of my female colleagues and found it’s actually possible to pamper yourself with treatments or products up to four times a month on a budget of as little as $80. The trick is to avoid booking directly through your local salon or spa and instead make use of daily deal sites such as Scoopon, LivingSocial, OurDeal or Groupon (to name but a few).

I’ve already written a few posts in the past about how to find cheap meals out for two by making use of a Scoopon discount, OurDeal coupon code or LivingSocial deals. Today however, I want to show you how you can utilise discounted offers from these sorts of sites to pamper yourself the way you deserve (e.g with massages, facials, manicures, pedicures or beauty products) but for less than you’d probably expect.

 

How to Pamper Yourself with a Monthly Budget of as Little as $80 Through Sites like ScooponWe found that you can purchase a range of beauty treatments or products for as little as $80 over the course of one month compared to the (approximately) $270 those same services would cost on average when buying directly through their respective retailers. With some options starting from just $20 via daily deal sites, this implies that you could end up pampering yourself to something once a week each month on that sort of budget. This is based on our finding of the following average costs for treatments:

Massage: average cost of $15 – $35 (non-deal value $45 to $100)
Facial: average cost of $29 (non-deal value over $100)
Hair: average cost $19 – $29 (non-deal value over $75)
Nails $19 – $35 (non-deal value $35 – $95)

 

The amount that you can save will depend on the deals that you choose to purchase and the availability in your respective city. I’ve put together a list below to help you get started, which shows there’s generally plenty of choice in different cities when combining your bookings through sites like ScooponOurDeal, Living Social and Groupon. However, the selection is not limited to my the list below, so feel free to browse these websites for a greater variety of deals in your specific area. This is merely a a quick selection to give you an indication of the various treatments and products, and what sort of prices they’re going for.

As mentioned above, the basis on which I’ve structured this article follows the loose guidelines of being able to buy luxury products or services on a weekly basis for a total period of one month. In the price comparison tables below, I’ve listed the costs of booking through the beauty/health retailers directly, alongside what the costs of going through a daily deals site will be.

For the sake of simplicity, I’ve restricted my deals research to three main cities: Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Generally speaking package deals work out to be cheapest, so if you find a combination deal that includes something like a massage or facial for two, then bring along a friend as these can prove to be even more cost effective.
