Yes! I use Groupon a lot!! Ive scored 50% off things I use anyway--- gelato, spray tanning, bounce house--- lots of times. :) They have massages, restaurants, and other things that I like, too. My friends have done half price skydiving and horseback riding

 We mostly buy from groupon. We have always had good experiences. We have bought mostly from restaurants, usually when you get about half off.

Yes, I used Living Social to get aweekend getaway.  Unfortunately, they booked too many people for the getaway and when we called them up, they didn't have any rooms left (however that happened)....so we had to get our thing returned.  We haven't used either ever since.

A webite that post deals for about 48 hours. Then you have about 6 months to a year to use them. It is paid for upfront then you use your smart phone or print a copy of the voucher to take into the retailer.

They also have "Now Deals" which expire much sooner-- usually by the end of the day. They are great deals! :)

They never have anything in my area.   I live in small town Montana.   They have stuff for a town 2 hours away....

I've used both of them. I'm careful to only buy what I can use though.
