It's a website for local discounts from participating businesses. You have to create an account and conditions do apply. In addition, they give you $5 or something like that for each person you get to join. The catch is it's in Groupon bucks not real money.
I checked it out from a business person's point of view and wasn't very impressed. The company my dad works for, though, uses it all the time to promote their business and its worked well for them.
