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 a resort getaway in Palm Springs to big city fun in Seattle.  Groupon is now offering a variety of closing dates, not just the traditional Tuesday at 11:59 PM.  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 and are continuing to sell out quickly. If you see something you like, be sure to act quickly.
