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.

someone (i'm guessing he's on here) redeemed their voucher today right in front of me in Brick.
Apparently the csr was incorrect in assuming that the cash cards come in the mail. When i pointed it it she spoke to a mngr and they gave it to me on the spot.
So whoever you are go back and ask for the cash cards

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
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

+1
doesn't make sense for this deal
maybe if Fairmount has another ;)
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%
