I’m not much into clipping coupons myself, but considering how many threads on Jabba’s board have deteriorated into arguments over what amounts to less they 50 cents, ya know there is a Groupon site for Thailand these days. Mmmm, almost a 700 baht saving on Muay Thai lessons . . . maybe I will start doing coupons.
