Interesting article out this morning about Groupon Getaways - the deeply discounted travel packages from the folks at Groupon. You likely have heard of Groupon, the company that offers deals near or below 50% on dining, recreation, and more. I have even purchased a couple of their discounted virtual coupons myself for restaurants and even a car wash.
If you have purchased a Groupon offer - or even if you have not but if you've subscribed to their alerts and notices - you may have seen some great looking offers for vacation deals called Groupon Getaways.
An article posted on GIGAOM titled 'Groupon Getaways aren’t the deal they seem to be' suggests that you very carefully examine the fine print _before_ purchasing your Groupon Getaway. The author, Rocky Agrawal, points out that the exclusions and exceptions might make your travel deal that sounds too good to be true in fact too good to be true or real... that you may have difficulty cashing in on this travel voucher.
