    @asb983:  I say do it cause you can save tons but make sure that its available during the dates you want! Those are very specific with departure dates and if its al “all inclusive” make sure it includes airfare/food cause I’ve seen a few tricky ones

    I would read the reviews of the resort/hotel before committing. I checked out a few that sounded like a great deal but when you actually read the Tripadvisor reviews, they’re not that great. I guess in some ways, you get what you pay for, but I would definitely do my research since you are, presumably, shelling out hundreds or thousands of dollars.

    Depends. I took a Groupon vacation, and it was great, but I do have some caveats. If you change your date or can’t travel, kiss your money goodbye. In contrast, most normal hotel bookings you’d only be out the first night. Also ask why it’s such a good deal. Is it hurricane season? Is the place getting crappy reviews and they’re desperate? Do your research before buying, and look at the fine print too. Is it available for your dates? Is it weekdays only? What if it’s a 5 day package and you want to stay a week? Ask questions before buying, especially with Groupon (Living Social escapes can be cancelled up to a week or two after purchase, Groupons can’t). Like I said, worked out great for us. We went to Niagara Falls, the Canadian side, and it was our first vacation together.

    And be especially careful with buying trip n”extras” through those sites. If it falls through, when are you going to use it again? We spent $150 on a helicopter ride we weren’t able to take, and it’s against terms of use to sell. I ended up gifting it on Craigslist
