Group-Think Meets Shopping=Groupon! Sweet!

I just discovered Deal Radar through a friend of mine and thought I would share.  The service sends you a daily email for deals in your area for websites like Groupon and such.  It is awesome! You can even customize your feed for your area.

So far I have only bought one Groupon for a $50 Gap gift card that only cost me $25! It is good to the read the fine print though, some offers may have restrictions so it is good to look closely.

I hadn’t ever heard of most of the other sites, but they are very similar to Groupon and work the same way.  If you haven’t checked them out before, below is a sample of the email of deals for Vancouver I got today.  Some look especially suited for my sordid stressed out existence:
