LORENW said: In my area, Groupon and Living Social are 99% useless. They have very slim pickens for offers, and any offer that is a possible for me, has the this offer doesn't not allow promo or coupons. Apparently, Groupon is going to reduce the number of areas it focuses on to about 15 major markets from the curent about 27,

Livng Social also has a bunch of stuff, but as an above post also stated, I haven't bought anything there in a long time, and I have had bad customer service that keeps me away (I had a Living Social expiring in 3 weeks,. The merchant had a sign on the door stating they would be closed until 6 p. m. on the evening of the day my certificate expires. I called Living Social 3 weeks before the expiration date to ask what happens if they don't open at 6 p. m. the day the certificate expires, and I am prevented from using the certificate. The representative told me that unless they are permantly 'out of business', basically, 'tough noogies'. They then followed up with an email that said something like 'We're sorry you didn't bother using your certificate before it expired', 3 weeks before it expired.) I've had nothing but good expirences the few times I've called Groupon, having purchased about 200 Groupons (I live in New York, with lots of offers, and have been purchasing Groupons since 2009, when there was 1 deal a day, and you got points for being the first, or one of the first 50 to buy a deal.)

I interpreted your comment as them focusing on big cities, completely removing smaller cities where they currently have few offers. But the bloomberg article says "Groupon plans to exit 11 countries, focusing only on 15, as it streamlines international operations."
