It may be Easter week, but Groupon has no shortage of travel specials. Groupon, the original travel deal site, offers dozens of travel specials each week, with savings often exceeding 50 percent. In the last few weeks they have expanded their selection dramatically.

This week, the offers range from sunny San Diego to the Jersey Shore.  Groupon is now offering a variety of closing dates, not just the traditional Tuesday at 11:59 PM.  Because of that, we’re now listing the closing time with each deal. Keep in mind, these escapes are becoming more and more popular and are continuing to sell out quickly. If you see something you like, be sure to act quickly.
