Groupon is a web and mobile app that allows you to purchase services and merchandise at a discounted rate on a daily basis.
This web-based daily deals site compliments Groupon’s mobile apps for the iPhone and Android platforms. It allows you to check out daily deals wherever you have an internet connection. Each day, Groupon offers a new deal at a discounted rate, generally ranging from 40-60% off the going market price. The deals are tailored specifically to your city of residence and are described in a quirky and often humorous way that is fast becoming Groupon’s calling card.
Each deal requires a specific number of Groupon users to purchase it before it will become valid. If the requisite number of people do not purchase it, users who initially chose to buy it will not have their credit cards charged. If enough people do make the purchase, however, Groupon will let you know that “the deal is on!”
Groupon is a convenient and innovative way to find out about the best deals in your city.
