  1. I would like to see this come up here to Seattle. Looks like they are giving Groupon a run for their money. Interesting to see how this works out in the long run. Will Groupon come to wish they had sold out to Google?

  2. @Miriam
    I did not but I was tempted to blow the $3 dollars to experience the purchase process and the post purchase emails… but alas frugality won out.

  3. Just what small businesses need, another ‘offer’ program. All the more reason for consumers to hold off on purchasing something while they wait for a heavily discounted offer to show up. On the other hand, I’m anxious for my local Mercedes dealership to hook up with one of these deal programs and offer a SLK 350 or C350 for 70+% off.
