You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer —I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of San Antonio: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power"!
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today's deal) signs up by the end of the day, you'll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today's expires in one year). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It's nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life's cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
Put on your taco swimsuit and dive into an Olympic-sized salsa pool with today's zesty Groupon. For $15, you get $35 worth of traditional and cutting-edge Mexican cuisine at Tomatillos Café y Cantina, an energetic eatery that won a 2009 Sabroso Award for best margaritas from the staff at Conexión.
Start with a cup of tortilla soup ($6.99), a semi-spicy base topped with tortilla strips, avocado slices, and cheese. A special healthy vegetarian menu allows non–meat eaters to try dishes like spinach enchiladas (filled with sauteed greens and veggies; $8.99) or ensalada paraiso (cucumber, celery, green olives, avocado, and tomatoes tossed with spring mixed greens; $8.99). You'll also find a variety of combination platters ($8.49–$10.99), enchiladas ($8.99–$10.99), and tacos ($8.99–$12.99).
Colorful accents, friendly service, and classic Latino beats in the background give this restaurant a fun, festive feel without those darn stilts that Uncle Gary refuses to take off that ruin most of your fun festivities. Get this Groupon to give sweet teeth a rest from holiday treat overload, declog sinuses with spicy flavors, or coat your stomach in a warm lining of melted cheese.
