Living Social vs Groupon

Recently I posted that the Groupon Laredo arrival was cut short by Groupon’s decision to clump us together with the Rio Grande Valley. Boo!

I commented that maybe Living Social or Google Offers would pick us up and guess what? The very next day, Living Social kicks off Laredo:

An email from Living Social led me to this page for helping them take off in Laredo

Apparently, Groupon is watching what happens and read my previous post. I received this email letting participants who had signed on for Groupon to consider helping them connect to businesses. It doesn’t look like Laredo separate from the Rio Grande Valley but I guess they still want Laredo to participate:

Email sent to - it does show they READ the posting. YAY, Groupon!

I got a note from USHS smarty Alan of AlnAndr Blog about a little competition he had going on in twitter to see which one would launch in Laredo first. Here is the shot of his 1st twitter race and the final:

Now it is up to us. Business owners, submit a coupon to use to your preferred site. Let’s see which one really will stick to Laredo’s growing community. It is a great way to increase traffic to your business and for Laredo users to try out your product. A ver que pasa.
