Topic Wiki

Find a living social deal you want and think others here would as well?
Post it here and see if 3 others want it and then you'll each be able to save 25%.
When you buy a deal from Living Social, they provide you with a link for  your friends to buy the deal too.  If 3 friends buy the deal through your link, you get the deal free.
By posting your interest here, you’ll get 3 friends to sign up with your link and you split the savings between all 4 of you.

Suggestion: Instead of posting the link for all to buy from, why not pm it to the 3 ppl showing interest?
This will prevent others from "accidentally" using the link, and help everyone get the best discount.

1. ShmuliT.
2. AJK
3. ushadude
4. nocknock

I just thought about a way to save 50% instead of just 25% :)
What if this was bought by, for example, AJK. It gets split between 4. Then the other 3, (shmulit, ashedude, and nocknock) share their links with another 3 (maybe jrweaver912, rufieg3, and saver2000)(Yekli89, AAA, Bermo) (Mod, smurf, bestwatchman) and each of the original 3 (shmulit, ashedude, and nocknock) get ANOTHER 25% back, for a total of 50% savings!

This can keep going as long as there are groups of 3 more people to buy. The only ones not getting it would be the first person to buy and the last 3 on each end of the chain.
Thoughts?

I ran through this earlier and I don't think it works.

Assume I buy a $60 item, and A, B, and C buy off my link.

I get it for free, and I pay A, B, and C $15 each, so each is out $45 total.

Then X, Y, and Z buy off A's link.

A gets his for free, and then also pays X, Y, Z, $15 each.

Thus, A is still out $45 total.

Am I missing something?

ETA: It seems I am missing something. A received $15 from AJK and has paid out $60, for a net of $45.

However, once XYZ buys from A, he has STILL received $15 from AJK, but now has not paid out anything.  Thus, after paying XYZ $45, he has a net outlay of $30...

I knew I should have stuck with it a bit longer, but at 2:00AM, my brain slows  ;)

It get's very complicated for marginal savings

55 * 3 / 4 = 41.25

55 * 5 / 7 = 39.28

55 * 7 / 10 = 38.50

You didn't split the savings equally- only have it to the person who supplies the link to the second group (he saves $15, but if you split that between all 7 people, it's just a shade over $2/person)

I was part of a group. 
If I give out my link now,  and 3 people purchase,  I'll get refunded. 

Will that affect my original group?
