I have heard mixed reviews about this online-based daily-deals website. Consumer of course, love it. Business owners. on the otherhand haven't offered up glowing reviews.

I have used Groupon many times. The owner of business I used a Groupon coupon for told me that the site takes 50% of the sale produced through the Groupon website. He said that with the already discounted service, he doesn't make much of a profit at all. It generates new customers though, but at a big price.

So, my question to you is: Do you use Groupon? And if so, what did you think? Let me know by commenting below or email me at
