I dip in and out of Groupon. Sometimes I like the offers and sometimes I’m not fussed, but some good deals have gone live today so I thought I’d flag up the best ones before they cease to be.
T-Mobile is offering a 32GB iPad for £49 (worth up to £229), when you sign a 24-month T-Mobile contract (£27 a month). It is tempting but if you are in the market for an iPad, do remember that the iPad 2 is to be released in the UK on 25 March 2011… I suppose it depends on what your priorities are: cheap and “old”, or more expensive and cutting edge. Saving: £180. [Groupon iPad deal.]
Spoiledbrat.co.uk is a very expensive “celebrity-inspired” fashion website. It’s not really my cup of tea, because nothing puts me off a suede tassel stud waistcoat faster than the immortal words, As Seen on Paris Hilton. Well, that and the price tag (£152, in case you were wondering).
That said, some of the clothes are pretty and this Groupon brings the prices down to more reasonable levels. The best stuff is in the childrenswear section: even the celebrities who dress like clowns know how to accessorise their kids. Pictured: Trumpette Mary Jane socks, £19. Saving: £33.

Rapanui, based in the Isle of Wight, is an ethical clothing company that makes some really good T-shirts and tops. It manufactures clothes using organic fabrics and renewable energy, and pays its workers living wages.
