Groupon, the original travel deal site, offers dozens of travel specials each week, with savings often exceeding 50 percent. This week, the offers range from family fun in Orlando to an upscale inn in California wine country.  Groupon is now offering a variety of closing dates, not just the traditional Tuesday at 11:59 p.m.  Because of that, we’re going to start listing the closing time with each deal. Keep in mind, these escapes are becoming more and more popular. Some of this week’s offers are already sold out. If you see something you like, be sure to act quickly.
