Groupon in Mexico
Groupon takes local businesses, mainly restaurants and other service providers, and sends out an e-mail to its members who can take advantage of huge discounts by purchasing the offer of the day. The offers are valid for a limited time and only a limited number are available. For example, a meal at a local restaurant that costs $200 MXN might be on sale for $40 MXN. Groupon is free to join.
There are a number of Groupon competitors sprouting up in Mexico including Groupalia, Cuponzote, BuzzUrbano, and OferCity.
I've personally used the service and think it is a great idea - and one that is sure to be around a long time in Mexico.
