The Guerlain Spa at the Waldorf-Astoria, via Last Minute Spa Finder
Mother sucker: you're leaving for vacation on Friday, you need a mani-pedi that's a step up from your neighborhood joint, and you seriously do not want to drop a Benjamin to do so. Enter Last Minute by SpaFinder.com. Basically, you get 30—80% off unbooked and cancelled spa appointments, so it's very friendly for those last minute spa-mergencies.
There are three things that make this different from all of the other online booking and deal sites. First, you're able to finally grab an online deal and book your appointment at the same time. On top of that, the caliber of business is pretty amazing: think treatments at Guerlain Spa at the Waldorf-Astoria or spin classes at Revolve (no crawling up to the second floor of some weird place on 42nd Street for a sketchy spray tan).
To top it all off, you're scheduled directly into the business' appointment calendar, so there's no coupon or code to deal with and you're not "the deal customer" when you show up. You're just a savvy babe who is about to get a killer massage for half off.
