This week’s Living Social offers span the United States, from historic and festive San Antonio to the rural loveliness of New Hampshire. Like Groupon and Yuupon, Living Social offers weekly travel deals at savings of up to 50 percent and more. Similar to Groupon, Living Social gives you a set amount of time to purchase the “deal,” although any offer can sell out before that date. Unique to Living Social is the option to get the entire deal for free if you recommend the deal to your friends (either real or Facebook friends) and they subsequently purchase the deal. I also like that these offers give you ample time to use them, unlike some of the other travel deal sites.
