Daily deals from Groupon

Check out Groupon which is kind of like Daily Candy's "Deal of the Week" but better. Groupon gives you a daily deal across major cities in the U.S. You can lock in on the discounted price for restaurants, spas, tickets, etc. if enough people buy into it. A clever business decision because it forces people to spread the word about the service. Today's deal in New York: $40 for 2-week access to the Sports Center at Chelsea Piers. Don't worry if there are not enough people signed up yet for an offer in order to lock in the discounted price: you can enter your credit card information so that when the threshold is reached, you automatically are in queue to get it. Who can turn down a good deal? Andrew Mason, the company's CEO, was recently featured in Crains 40 under 40 in Chicago.
