In a city where take-out dinner can cost more than a day’s pay, Manhattanites are always on the lookout for a good deal that won’t break the bank. And now, thanks to a recently launched website that offers a discounted service at a different New York City spa each week, saving big bucks is just a click away. Visitors simply log on to www.25Tuesdays.com each Tuesday to check out which spa is offering a discounted service that week. Although the deals can only be purchased on Tuesdays, they can redeemed any day of the week for up to a year. And the deals really are quite incredible. For example, this Tuesday’s featured bargain is a $25 green tea hair treatment with a blowout at Le Salon Chinois. The 30-minute treatment regularly costs $130, but through 25Tuesdays.com, clients save 80 percent! For those not from the New York City-area, fear not. 25Tuesdays will be launching in more cities this winter.
