Posted by Frugal Guy. Sunday, December 19. Finding Deals at Groupon? The latest thing being discussed at the place I work is Groupon. Apparently, until recently, they did not have deals available where I live. Is it worth giving it a try? I don't know yet. But, given that I'm not afraid of letting one more company have my email address I just signed up. Since the idea seems to be growing fast I'm guessing we'll see more companies trying this idea. Update: The following blurb about Groupon is from CNBC.
