LivingSocial – Addicted to Groupon? Here is a new addiction to add to your obsession. LivingSocial is an app for smartphone users (and also a website) that is almost identical to Groupon. It has daily deals that you can use at specific places of your choice. This is a great alternative because there is a second option if you don’t find something on Groupon and can specify by city of your choice. Deals can include food, spas, shopping and travel, where there is always something new for you to try. This app is free, so you can take it anywhere for easy access of great deals.
