Have you met Groupon, the addictive deals site featuring one amazing deal in your city daily? From bags to BBQ, think of Groupon as the pimp for your city. From what to eat, see, do and buy, the daily deal is always at an unbelievable price (usually at least 50% off). Harnessing the power of group buying, Groupon arranges deals with fab businesses from restaurants to salons, spas to gyms — and the upside for all of us (beyond huge savings) is exposure to something great in our neighborhoods we might not have been exposed to otherwise.
