No matter where you live, if you don’t make an effort to find out what’s going on locally, then it’s almost like you’re a tourist in your own town. When you live somewhere, you could have this tendency to avoid digging deep in your own community because to you, doing something recreationally may mean leaving town. With that said, there’s probably a lot of cool stuff that you could experience in your own town if you just knew about it. Groupon wants to make you more aware of what’s happening around you and save you money in the process.

A nice selection of large US cities are supported on the site, and when you find the nearest city to you, you’ll see that Groupon offers a daily deal that you can be a part of. What this means is that each day you’ll be presented with an opportunity from a local business that you can take advantage of. Groupon is all about collective buying power, and since there’s strength in numbers, they’re able to work with local businesses to setup amazing deals. If enough people agree to be a part of a deal, then the deal becomes available and everyone benefits. Just to give you an idea of the savings that you can benefit from, the current offer in my city is 79% off the normal price. You can’t beat that!
