The offers from Living Social this week span North America, from cosmopolitan Toronto to sunny San Diego. Like Groupon and Yuupon, Living Social offers weekly travel deals at savings of up to 50 percent and more.
Similar to Groupon, Living Social sets a deadline to purchase the “deal,” although they can sell out earlier. Living Social offers the unique option to get the entire deal for free if you recommend the deal to your friends (real and from Facebook) and they subsequently purchase. These offers allow ample time to use them before they expire.
