After reading a recent article n the WSJ (see: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304563104576363891724546426.html), I decided to check it out. Groupon (www.groupon.com) has some potential. Vendors can offer deals that expire or that won’t be valid unless a certain number of people “buy ” it. However, the deals are regional with the closest offerings to us, in West Palm Beach. I think as local vendors get onboard, it has potential to really grow. Investors think so. They also have iPhone and iPad apps.
I’ll check it out again in six months and see if it’s expanded their selection relevant to our area.
