My friend forwarded me an e-mail from Groupon about some great deal. Has anybody heard of it? The discount seems to be too good to be true! Is this some sort of scam? How does it work?

I am addicted to Groupon!!! LOVE IT!! But I agree you need to read all the terms of the deal before buying. We got a great deal at Austin's Park and Pizza, for example, but you had to use the Groupon by end of October.

It works based on "group-buying power", thus the name. There are a minimum number of Groupons that must get sold, in order for anyone to get the deal. That being said, I LOVE Groupons! If I find an especially good one, I post it to Facebook. If three of your friends purchase it from your link (they each will have your personal identifier embedded), you get that deal for free. Pretty awesome idea, and I have saved a ton of cash.

I've been very happy using Groupon. Have gotten some great deals. 365 Things to Do in Austin also has some great deals.

I've used Groupon multiples times with great success (and great savings). Just make sure to check expiration dates.

Groupon is legit. My cousin runs a business that participates in it. The catch is that you only have 24 hrs to get in on the deal. Once the day ends the deal changes to a new one. Most deals require that you use the whole amount in one visit. Read the fine print before you buy.
