A tanning salon offers the just-back-from-the-beach look without the hassle of sand in your pants or a giant squid that won't get out of your passenger seat. Take the simple approach to tanning with today's Groupon. For $29, you get $60 worth of tanning services and products at Gold'n Tan in the West Edmonton Mall.
Gold'n Tan serves the tanning needs of pallid pelts with tanning beds, spray tan services, and attentive customer service. Today's Groupon is good for $60 worth of tanning services and products, such as bronzing in Gold'n Tan's Matrix ($50 per session), billed as Canada's fastest tanning bed after running a 5:46 mile. This Italian–made high-pressure unit—in both lie-down and stand-up models—uses a filtered UV light that blocks most UVB rays. Fair-skinned ladies and gents report that these friendly filtered rays allow them to tan without burning their skin. Those focused on quantity skip economical yet dangerous DIY fire tanning and instead take advantage of the bargain beds ($15 per session, or a block of 100 minutes for $80). Additionally, tanners can kick start their new tanned looks with the sunless tanning system, which mists ghostly facades in a streak-free golden glow ($50 per session).
Today's Groupon is also good toward any product in the store, including goggles ($7.50) and daily moisturizers ($25–$52). Pre-bronzing, customers can unwind coiled mind matter in the comfortable waiting room, and for the toddler-toting, childcare is available in the adjacent gym.

Gold'n Tan houses a bevy of tanning beds that let customers achieve bronze glows regardless of the weather. Three different systems stand at the ready, including high-pressure, 650-watt Matrix beds, Hex stand-up booths, and Tanses beds. Those looking to avoid UV rays can ask for an airbrush tan, which lasts up to 10 days and looks real enough to trick the sun into crossing you off its bucket list.
