This week’s Groupon specials are a hodge-podge of warm and snowy destinations.  There are several good deals in the more than two dozen offers. This week’s Groupon Getaway specials include Virginia Beach, Aspen, Reno and Phoenix, just to name a few. Accommodations range from bed and breakfast inns to boutique hotels to historic landmarks. Keep in mind that these escapes are becoming more and more popular. Several of last week’s specials sold out before the deadline, so if you see something you like, be sure to act quickly. (Two offers even sold out while I was putting this post together.)
