    Default Anyone use Groupon or LivingSocial for travel deals?

    I get the offers all the time via email but I'm a bit nervous about scheduling a trip through them. Anyone have experience with it?

    Even worse, one of the lawyers I work with's wife was one of the people who worked on this ad campaign. I like her, but I had to send her company hate mail after this ish. They lost a lot of ad business and she thought she might lose her job over this.

    I've never used either---something about it scares me and I have no idea why. Got nothing to back that up with, but I am fearful for some reasons.

    I'd love to hear if anyone else has, and see how it was.

    No, not for travel, but I do use Seize the Deal quite a bit for local deals.

    I'll look at it when I'm at home (just in case it's not good for work!). It's good the better deals seem to be through LivingSocial then.

    Lynnie, I've seen a few people comment on Travelocity about going through these two sites. They all seem pretty please but, yes, it scares me too.
