Social couponing websites like Groupon and LivingSocial now offer more than discounts for services at local businesses.  In partnership with the leading travel website Expedia, Groupon Getaways offers significant discounts on packages to top travel destinations all over the world.  Subscribers are sent a weekly email that features several of the travel deals that are being offered for the week.  Interested parties then have two weeks to purchase a deal.  Similarly, LivingSocial Escapes also sends subscribers weekly emails outlining its latest travel deals.  When you purchase a deal through LivingSocial Escapes, you can refer it to your friends; if three of them purchase the deal, you get yours for free.

3 Ways to Get a Deal through Socal Couponing

1.  Scoop up deals before your trip.  A few weeks before you leave, sign up to receive deals specific to the city or region you’re visiting.

2.  Read the fine print to find out when the deal expires, if there are blackout dates and the amount of taxes involved.

3.  Do your research.   Call or go online to find out the regular cost of the hotel, restaurant or other amenities offered to make sure you’re getting a deal.
