FREE Propane!!!

Think "propane" and probably the first thing to come to mind would be Hank Hill of "King of the Hill." Lately, however, when I have been thinking of propane, the word "expensive" comes to mind.

I used to get a tank of propane for a mere $10 per tank at the City of Sunrise. Years ago that town had a fleet of vehicles that ran on propane (and what happened those vehicles?) but as that fleet was drawn down they still had a big propane station. So what they did was offer really cheap propane to the public. I used to love it. Just pull up to the propane station, hand them 10 bucks, and fill up my tank. So imagine my distress last May when I pulled up to the Sunrise propane station only to be hit with a notice that the service would NO LONGER be available. Talk about depressing...especially when I went to a regular propane station and shelled out 20 bucks.

However, good propane news hit me yesterday. Groupon sent me a notice that I could get propane locally for 50% off or just $10. Even better I had earned a bunch of Groupon bucks for referrals so paying with those, it meant NO money out of pocket, i.e. FREE!!!

I know there are some who claim that Groupon only offers deals on stuff that you don't need. Really? You might not need propane but The Coupon Whisperer sure does for his barbeque. If you have an emergency and lose power that propane comes in mighty handy for cooking up hot meals.

Anyway, it doesn't cost anything to join Groupon and you will be sent deals specific to your area. Refer your friends and it is amazing how many deals you can get for FREE like I did with this propane deal.

So what are you waiting for? Click GROUPON and get in on the deals. It costs NOTHING to join and you could end up scoring FREE propane.

  1. Where is this deal? I checked in Miami and Ft Lauderdale and couldn't find it.
