About Living Social
A lot of the listings on the site are temporary, reflecting the daily deal style of one of their early incarnations.
The core website is LivingSocial.com which allows you to search its listings based on any country or city you choose. Pricing is displayed in your own local currency (depending on your IP location). Because the site is more like a listing of classified ads than its own store, shipping options and terms vary from merchant to merchant. However Living Social does offer customer support if something goes wrong. You can also make universal savings from time to time by redeeming special Living Social coupons, which we keep up to date here at Coupofy.
Living Social Sells
There are large number of different offers available on Living Social, many which will change from day to day. The main categories are sorted by Home & Garden, Fashion, Electronics, Kids & Pets, Beauty, Services, and Health. Each category will display products but also related services. For example in the Home & Garden section you may see offers for fruit and vegetable delivery services.
There is also a separate page for Travel, which you can search via "destinations" or "interests." These include typical holiday style trips away, to things that are more adventurous. You can find hotels, transport, activities, attractions, and all sorts of other things to do.
One interesting element of the site is the use of paid vouchers. This is where you pay for example $50 for a voucher for a store or restaurant, which has a value much higher when redeemed. These will often have to be redeemed by a certain date, and are used as a promotion tool to draw new customers to the businesses.
You can make even more savings on these by applying Living Social coupons during the checkout process.
As well as the website, Living Social has a high social media presence and a popular mobile app, the latter of which allows you to search for the best deals depending on your location. This makes it a great travel companion.
Living Social accepts all major credit and debit cards, as well as Paypal, Diners Club, MasterPass, and other systems depending on your location.

The company tries to ship all LivingSocial Products by the delivery date set out in the Shipping Confirmation or within 30 days of the date of the Shipping Confirmation, if no delivery date is specified, unless there are exceptional circumstances. If the shipping information in the Confirmation is incorrect, customers may change the shipping address if a request is made within twenty-four hours from the time of the order by contacting the Consumer Advocates directly.
Even though Living Social is often just a middle-man, they still have a comprehensive refund policy for everything you purchase through them.
For "regular local deals" all you have to do is go to your account page and click the “Ask for a Refund” button, and so long as you haven't redeemed the voucher you will be refunded within 7 days.
Purchases for specific dates like events or getaways are non-refundable.
