If you love getting group discount prices on local deals and events, then Groupon has an app for you -- if its deals are available in your area. The website has been growing in popularity recently, so much so that it is difficult for some businesses to cope with the consumer interest in deals that can cut 50-90% off of a purchase price. And now, with the Groupon app for the iPhone and Android devices, it is easier than ever to find a local Groupon and redeem it without a printer.
The Groupon apps are available free on iTunes and the Android Marketplace and allow users to find local Groupon deals and then redeem them with a few taps, which is great for users who are mobile or simply live without a printer.
The Groupon app is perfectly suited for travelers heading to one of the 103 cities in which Groupon operates. Simply open up the app, wait for it to find your location or choose the city you are in, and see the Groupon of the day. Great for spontaneous travelers or for finding something to do if your plans change.
Deals range from group prices on hotels, events, meals and transportation to activities like skydiving, massages or more. The offers are so varied that the company has challenged one individual to live off nothing but Groupon deals for an entire year. If he succeeds, he will earn a $100,000 prize.
Your prize for using Groupon will be smaller, but still enjoyable. With new discounts to be found every day, you're sure to find something you want and now you can redeem it without finding a printer.
