You can sign up for an online account at Groupon and purchase deals that you can use locally or nationally.
Groupon is a website offering discount coupons locally and even outside of the country. It was first launched in 2008, targeting Chicago. The first deal it offered was for pizza at a half-price. Eventually, it was also offered in Boston, Toronto and New York. Eventually, it started acquiring similar deal-of-the-day sites in different countries all over the world. These include Beeconomic.com in Singapore, Qpod.jp in Japan, and SoSasta.com in India. In 2012, Groupon bought Breadcrumb which targets local restaurants. In September of the same year, they also bought Savored which offers the same services as Breadcrumb but for a bigger market. Eventually, they started acquiring other businesses that offer different services such as Glassmap which offers location sharing services, as well as Blink which is an app that offers hotel reservations.
