Who doesn't like a great deal? And now, it seems every store around has an app promising to put "deals of the day" at your fingertips. So what's a person to do? Deal management is becoming a full time job.
Groupon - an amalgam of "group coupon" - has been taking over the country lately, including one incredibly attractive buyout offer by some other company you may've heard of. Simple concept - local business wants to get you in their doors, offers a really good, one-time deal; Groupon sends out an entertaining email telling you the details, you say - oh, I've been meaning to check that out! and tell your friends, while you're at it. The "groupon" only activates once enough people have bought it, and you're not charged until that happens. Win for you, win for business.
