Man living off Groupons for a year!

Posted August 17, 2010

Check out this bizarre story abotu a man living off Groupon coupons for a year!  He can't use or touch money for the whole year and is bartering coupons for services and everything else! I would never be able to participate in this kind of promo because of family responsibilities. If I didn't have kids, I still don't think I would do it. Would you?

    When I read the first condition that he give up his job and his apartment, I thought, he's crazy!! It's not like he's going to win $1 million. I think the prize is lame for the pain he will go through this year. Kudos to him if he can complete it. It certainly takes a "think outside the box" type of personality. Good luck to him, but not for me!!

    The other challenge is that he can't see his family more than five times a year (well, maybe that's a plus for some). It's an interesting publicity stunt but not something I'd want to do myself, even without family responsibilities.

    Group deals are a great way for businesses to reach new customers. Businesses looking to create and promote their own group deals online should check out platform providers like eWinWin.
