Sometimes a little patience pays off: through 12/22, buy any deal on Living Social and pay with V.me, and receive $25 in Deal Bucks to be used towards a future purchase. Eligible Purchases include "All Deals" and "Nationwide" Daily Deals but exclude purchases in Escapes, Shop, Takeout and Delivery, purchases made via mobile app or mobile web, or transacted on a third party site. Deal Bucks will be issued into the Living Social account on or before Jan. 3, 2013 and will expire 30 days from date of deposit. Limit one offer per account.

V.me is a free payment service similar to PayPal or Google Checkout. Owning a Visa is not required; MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card are also accepted.
