halfpriceI thought I knew of all the Half Price websites already, but I recently just discovered this new one (OK, it probably has been around for quite some time now). It is called South Florida Half Price Deals. It is similar to all the others: You buy a certificate for 50% off the face value – ie. a $50 gift certificate is only $25. Most of the certificates are for restaurants, but they do have certificates to other types of retailers such as: spas, fitness centers, tanning salons and the Improv.

Here are some they are offering right now:

  • 264 The Grill
  • Consigned Couture
  • Fred Astaire Dance Studio
  • Glamour Shots
  • Maid to Order
  • Skin Science Institute
  • Sushi Yama
  • The Funky Buddha Lounge

More merchants are added each week. Although this site is similar to the others, there are a few differences that you should be aware of:

  1. You cannot print the certificates off the website, so you must plan ahead.  They take 7-10 days to receive them.
  2. They add on a shipping and handling fee.
  3. There are no refunds, even if the establishment closes.

Be sure to check out my list of all the half price deals.
