Groupon Strategies for Genealogy
- Don’t be surprised if when you click an offer link, that the lowest price version is either sold out OR may be hidden on an additional page. I see this often on the Legacy Box product above.
- Use search terms “genealogy,” “family history,” “family reunion,” “family tree,” and similar terms.
- Make sure you determine any “hidden costs” such as tax and shipping; compare to Amazon Prime offers which will often have free 2-day shipping on the same item.
- Remember to search for specific items you already use in your research such as binders, file folders, scanners, printers, etc.
