Intro

Groupon is one of those simple tools that can quickly become an addiction. Each day, the service offers a range of massive discounts – usually well over 50% – on anything from haircuts to racing-car driving days, all in and around the area you live in. You’ve got a couple of days to snap up one of the coupons, which you can then use at your leisure over the next few months.

Whether you’re keen on cut-price pampering, or just want to find new places to go and things to see in your area, Groupon quickly becomes a vital lifestyle addition – and with the easy-to-use Groupon app, you need never miss a hot deal again.
