The video below will share a little about the program. It explains it pretty well!

What is Groupon?

Groupon features a daily deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in cities around the world. These cities are usually larger cities, but is spreading like wildflower. Featured on Oprah and almost bought by Google – this site is huge!

There is a new deal each day. You can sign up for daily alerts or visit the site each day. These deals can be tricky – first it has to meet a quota. Meaning the deal is not good until a certain number of people sign up for it and buy it – the collective buying power. If that number is not reached, you are not charged. If it is met, then the deal is live and rolling! Anyone can buy.

What Can I Do with These Gift Cards or Vouchers?

These make nice gifts – we all know how popular gift cards have become. Also, f you are traveling, it might a be a good site to check out a few weeks before you travel – you might find a great deal you can use while there!  Most gift cards last for a year’s time.

Do I Need to Live in the City Where Groupon is Being Offered?

Yes and No. There are MANY national (online/in store deals.) Some items like restaurants, spas, entertainment, photo deals are specific to a city or state, while othres can be used anywhere in the country.
