Living Social was offering a consultation with an interior decorator/planner to design and plan a home renovation of your choice. The price? A very low $99 compared to the $799 it usually retails for. We are planning to redo our kitchen and definitely needed someone to come in and help us plan for it. The only caveat: it was a "Grade B" design group. I wasn't even sure what that meant but I have to admit as good as the deal was it initially turned me off for these reasons:
• The drastically reduced pricing made me seriously wonder about the effort the consultant would really put into the project.
• Many, many, many people are purchasing this deal diluting the resources available when you plan on redeeming your voucher.
• The "Grade B" rating of the design group.
I talked myself in circles over this deal (I mean it was only $99, I wouldn't have lost terribly much if it was a disaster) but I finally decided to pass. Would you, or have you, purchased a discounted home improvement or interior design deal? If you have, was it a success?
