Putting your best face forward sometimes requires making your second-best face disappear in an unfortunate “accident.” Today’s deal creates the perfect alibi: you were busy enjoying a facial during the time of its disappearance: for $29, you get a 45-minute basic facial at Turning Heads Hair and Skin Studio (a $59.99 value).

Turning Heads offers lavish hair and face treatments in a serene spa environment, and its experienced aestheticians promise to pamper your precious pores until they reach a state of near-perfection. Treat yourself to a luxurious basic facial to ensure your mug is appropriately radiant for an upcoming photo shoot or run-in with the smug neighbourhood glow-worm. During the 45-minute treatment, your face will be gently cleansed, treated to a balancing toner, and slathered with a mask that penetrates deep into the pores and allows you to confess your true feelings to other patrons and passersby in temporary anonymity. One of Turning Heads’ friendly skin-whisperers will follow the mask with a relaxing face massage and a moisturizing day cream.

Paintball is like a production of Hamlet: it’s exciting, demanding, and by the end everyone has pretend-died. Celebrate Shakespearean sporting with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get either two hours of indoor play or four hours of outdoor play, as well as gear rental, mask rental, coveralls rental, and 500 paintballs, at Rampage Paintball (Up to a $54 value). This Groupon can be redeemed at Rampage’s indoor location in Calgary or at its outdoor locations near Millarville and Okotoks. Clients can upgrade their guns, masks, or ammo for additional costs. This deal is not valid on Saturdays.

Weave in and out of a crossfire of colour at one of Rampage Paintball’s three paintball fields. Its 28,000+-square-foot indoor field, Rampage City, puts a roof over the ricocheting back-and-forth of pigment pellets, while its outdoor fields—the more than 80,000 square feet of Urban Combat and the 50 acres of Rampage Outdoor—fill the songbird-soundtracked wilderness with the zip of paintballs cutting through the air like steak knives through a birthday card. Seek cover behind bunkers and obstacles as you target opponents lurking around each corner. The paintball gun included with this deal is a basic Model 98 marker. Guests can purchase additional paintballs (prices vary by location) should the initial supply run out in a Pollock-esque blaze of rainbow-evoking glory.

Welcome to Groupon, Calgary! For our inaugural deal, you get $30 worth of Italian fare and drinks for $12 at Involtini Ristorante, located at 2515 90 Avenue SW in Oak Bay Plaza. Since this is everyone’s first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.

How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Calgary: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theatre, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won’t find anywhere else. We call it “collective buying power.”

If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (25 for today’s deal) sign up by the end of the day, you’ll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupon or redeem it with one of our mobile apps. Use it whenever you want until the deal expires—today’s expires in six months. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won’t be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
