Groupon brings buyers and sellers together in a fun and collaborative way that offers the consumer an unbeatable deal, and businesses a large number of new customers.

Groupon is currently in more than 500 markets and 44 countries, while in Chicago alone 1.5 million people subscribe to its daily deals.
