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. Berkshires (MA) Inn – Two nights’ accommodations for two adults Sunday through Thursday at the Red Maple Inn in Spencer, MA, in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains for $221 (a $443 value.) The Living Social voucher also includes a bottle of wine and afternoon tea for two. Book and travel by May 1, 2012.
2. Albuquerque – One night’s accommodation for two people in a luxury queen room at the historic Mauger Estate Bed and Breakfast Inn in Albuquerque for $85 (a $170 value.) The Living Social voucher also includes a gourmet breakfast, parking, and flowers, fruit and cheese in the room. Book and travel by April 30, 2012.
3. Zion (UT) National Park – Two nights’ accommodations for two people in a Cowboy Cabin at the Zion Ponderosa Ranch in Zion National Park for $88 (a $175 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 February 28, 2012.
