If you’re in Seattle and have been feeling especially relaxed or looking intentionally polished, perhaps it’s because you’re a Groupon user intent on cashing in on beauty and spa offers. The online deals site has named its 25 most-pampered cities in the U.S. and Seattle made the top 10.
Seattle ranks No. 8 on the list of cities where people bought the most massages, haircuts, manicures, tanning sessions and other indulgent deals on a per user basis. The Emerald City somehow edged out places where people look good for a living, such as Los Angeles and Miami. Maybe the ranking signals that something about living in Seattle triggers a need to visit more salons and so forth. Let’s not overthink it — we’ll need another massage to calm down.
Salt Lake City was the most pampered place in the country, according to Groupon. A map detailing “pamper levels” shows Utah in a “constant state of zen,” along with Florida and Texas, which each had four cities in the top 25.
The list was released in conjunction with a Groupon promotion called Spring Beauty Week.
“We’re seeing more and more people recognize the importance of taking care of themselves inside and out — and doing it for an amazing value,” said Silvija Martincevic, vice president and general manager of health, beauty and wellness at Groupon, in a news releaae. “With more than 50,000 of the top salons and spas in our marketplace, Groupon has everything you need to pamper yourself from popular salon services to luxury spa treatments.”
