I had used groupon and they were okay. When I had problems, they stood behind their product. So I decided to try livingsocial. Unfortunately I tried livingsocial for a present! I can't tell you the humiliation when I showed up at the business and was told that I was getting something different than I paid for. They told me that I was not the only one who had misunderstood what was promised and they said it was all livingsocial.
The customer service was some of the worst I have ever received and only made me angrier. don't use them!
