Lightbulb Daily Hotel Deals (Groupon-Living Social-Voyage Privé-Bloomspot-etc)

I started this thread back when Groupon was the main player in daily deal hotel offers. Now, there are a plethora of sites, some much better than others. My email inbox overflows with alerts everyday, but over the last year and a half, I have my favorites. Never have I seen a Groupon for less than 50% off. Voyage Privé, Jetsetter and SniqueAway offer worldwide luxury at various discount percentages. LivingSocial and Bloomspot have post-worthy deals every once in a while. Rarely do I spend more than $100/nt on hotel stays, so TripAlertz hasn't appealed to me at all.

Groupon's international sites aren't officially for non-native buyers, but we've had reports from Flyertalkers they've successfully bought and used certificates. You'll need to be creative when filling in your address and billing details. See posts #335, #425, #428, #499, 1074, #1396, #1400.

After a year and a half, I have finally purchased my first deal (Groupon's $99/nt Embassy Suites Boston Logan), so don't have firsthand experience using these. Another disclaimer is, I use use Google Translate to read non-English sites. (Good for an occasional laugh. )

Posting these deals is rewarding, but time-consuming. Please PM for my referral / invitation links to any of these sites whenever possible. Feel free to contribute what you find, but please remember posting links with your referral ID is against FT rules. You can request people PM for the information.

Thank you and happy & safe travels!

Apparently not the most important city (okay, maybe I'm biased ...).

Groupon Kansas City:
-- The Hotel Phillips
-- $69 (tax and gratuity not included)
-- Includes breakfast for two and a bottle of "house wine"
-- One cert per night
-- Stay by 5/1/10
-- Blackout Dates March 11-13
-- Reservations required, subject to availability

This could be used on the Friday night of the MCI BBQ DO V (that is the last night it is valid), and it is a decent location for the Friday night activities.
