    Groupon is trying all kinds of new things to draw in more customers and businesses. I think this is going to work out for them well as it gives them a broader range of consumers.

    A great site to use to find the deal and sales offered by Groupon and other daily deal sites in your area is They will email you daily with the best discounts available, ensuring you won't miss out.
