Living social deals this week include a fantastic deal (50% off!) at a family-friendly resort in Kissimmee, Florida and a sophisticated getaway in Montreal. Like Groupon and Yuupon, Living Social offers weekly travel deals at savings of up to 50 percent and more.

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 it to your friends (real and from Facebook) and they subsequently purchase the same deal. These offers allow ample time to use them before they expire.
