Deals, deals, deals!

I think it is a common trait among music therapists that we are always looking for a bargain. Maybe it’s that early training for limited budgets and fluctuating paychecks. With that in mind, I thought it would be great to share some of my favorite bargains in the St. Charles area to make your visit a little more acceptable for your wallet and accountant.

Sudden Values: I get e-mails from this group in my in-box fairly regularly. There are many restaurants and other businesses who offer discounts on pre-paid services in the Geneva/St. Charles area. You can find some amazing deals for meals while you are at conference, but I would recommend checking mapquest or other map sites to determine how far the locations are from Pheasant Run to insure that it is possible for you to use your deal.  http://www.suddenvalues.com/foxvalley/

Groupon: Groupon only offers deals for the Chicago area, but if you put Western Suburbs in your preferences there may be some in the Geneva/St. Charles area which could strike your fancy. http://www.groupon.com/chicago/all

AmericanTowns: AmericanTowns offers coupons for different areas of the country. The Geneva page (just south of St. Charles) offers deals for restaurants as well as other services. It may take a while to dig through the rest of the info on the page, but some of the coupons may be worth the work. http://www.americantowns.com/il/geneva-coupons
