Social Shopping - What's the Deal?

Do you have your Groupon?

For us Savvy internet Moms, this question is not a rude proposition but a "Hell Yeah"

Ever since Groupon took to the internet arena there have been a gazillion daily deal sites pop up.  The deals are SOOOOO good yet so dizzyingly confusing!  So much so that I can't even keep track of the passwords let alone the daily deals.  But in such a short time its been a whirlwind of fun freebies and awesome deals for me and hopefully for you too!

What is Social Shopping?
 Social Shopping is a method of e-commerce where shoppers' friends become involved in the shopping experience.  Through word of mouth such as blogs like mine these sites are the place to be everyday.  These are here to stay so keep up with the trend...

Here's a summary of some of the sites that I've signed up to and have had success with.  Check out the ones with free credits or discounts for new members (red text)!  Thats an awesome perk to get you started! 

Local & Nationwide Restaurant/Services

Groupon
This site offers great discounts on local restaurants and services in your area as well as nationwide online or store deals.  Check out my past Soap.com, Zazzle and Gap success

Family Orientated
 Eversave
From spa treatments to restaurant discounts, ski packages to yoga classes.  
My recent saves were the All You Magazine deal and Wild Dill
New members get a $2 sign on Credit.
Very much like Groupon without the "deal on" part.  If you buy a deal and you share it with 3 friends yours is free (what a great incentive). 
A mix between Groupon and Living Social but on a much smaller scale
