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 will do) and they subsequently purchase the deal.
Below is a sampling of this week’s deals:
1. San Diego – Two nights’ accommodations for two adults Sunday through Thursday at the Porto Vista Hotel in San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood for $129 (a $310 value.) That’s a 58 percent savings! The Living Social voucher also includes welcome cocktails for two and continental breakfast daily. Book and travel by May 31, 2012.
2. Niagara Falls – Two nights’ accommodations for two people Sunday through Thursday in a cityview room at the Marriott Gateway on the Falls Hotel for $199 (a $369 value.)

3. New Hampshire Bed and Breakfast – Two nights’ accommodations for two people Sunday through Thursday in a superior traditional room at the Sunset Hill House in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire for $214 (a $427 value.)

To read more about these deals, visit the Living Social Escapes Website. Unlike the other deal sites, Living Social gives you 30 days to return the voucher for a full refund. After that, the vouchers are non-refundable, so be sure to read the fine print before giving them your credit card. All of the above deals expire at 11:59 PM on March 6, 2012.
