7 More Days to Save $10 on a $25 Kiva Microloan by sylvng

I haven’t quite jumped on the daily deal bandwagon like some of my friends who religiously check out TeamSave, TeamBuy, RedFlagDeals and similar sites every morning. But I do check the deals every once in a while, and I was pleasantly surprised the other day to find one for Kiva on Groupon. That’s the first time I’ve seen a charity related deal.  It’s neat – allows you to get a $25 microloan for $15.  All you have to do is buy before Dec 1st and redeem the coupon before May 31st of next year on Kiva’s site. It’s too bad it’s only available in the US or I would have definitely purchased one already.

So far over 8000 people have purchased – not bad!
