If it's not in your entertainment, shopping or personal care budget to spend any more money in that category at any given time, then the rule applies to daily deals, too, says Kay.

"If it's within your budget, then it's a good deal. But if purchasing a daily deal coupon makes you go over budget or use your credit card because you are out of cash, then it's not a good deal no matter what," she says. Kay also advises setting an additional daily deals budget for yourself to track how much you are really spending on daily deals.
