LivingSocial: $20 Whole Foods Market Gift Card For $10

LivingSocial, the group-buying deal-a-day website trying to go IPO like Groupon, is offering national deal today of a $20 value voucher to Whole Foods Market for only $10. Limit one per person. 5% of the sale price goes to the Whole Kids Foundation. I don’t shop there very often, but my sister says the organic chicken tastes much better than the standard stuff. Selected portion of way-too-long fine print below:

Limit one voucher per person • Whole Foods Market code shall not be deemed purchased by the purchaser until claimed • If code is not claimed within 90 days following offer period, code will be deemed forfeited, and purchasers will be refunded the full paid value ($10) of the Whole Foods Market code in Deal Bucks to be used on • Whole Foods Market code claimed by purchaser may be used over multiple purchases • Entire value of World Foods Market code claimed by a customer does not expire • PAID VALUE EXPIRES ON September 13, 2016 • PROMOTIONAL VALUE EXPIRES ON December 13, 2011


  1. Saw this in the email this morning! Excited to purchase!

  2. What makes this site interesting is the story of your personal financial journey and the insights into managing your assets. These are the reasons I keep coming back. This post, simply an FYI to the daily LivingSocial deal of the day, is neither interesting or useful. Deal aggregation is not a great way to build a reader base; stick with what you do best. Thanks Jonathan.

  3. @Dru – I appreciate the feedback. However, I’ve been doing this since 2004, and I’ve always posted up deals that I actually decide to participate in myself. I know for a fact that many readers do enjoy the deal posts, because they don’t have sift through hundreds of deals on a deal site. I’m sure many also do not. A major reason I continue to blog is that I can write whatever I want. 🙂 My suggestion is to simply ignore the posts that don’t interest you. Thanks for reading!

  4. @Dru, I’m with Jonathan on this one. I’m always checking MMM for the latest deals. If you don’t like it, don’t read the posts! Keep up the good work Jonathan!

  5. Actually, I am interested in deals more than about anything else on this blog. But not in any kind of deal, but a no-brainer kind of deal like this one (Alas, I missed on this one since they sold-out earlier with a record one million sold!)

  6. Sold out. 🙁

    I’m really interested in hearing the stats on this sale when they become available.

  8. Dru, I understand if this kind of post is not interesting to you. But can’t you just skip it then? Not all articles here or at any other blog are going to be appealing/useful to everyone.

    The uptake of the offer was pretty rapid. Over 500,000 coupons were sold in just 78 minutes!
