By now we’re sure that you’ve all heard of the daily-deals guru, Groupon. The company’s reputation for delivering your favorite goods at extremely discounted rates is now not only available in North America, but internationally too. Groupon has once again partnered with Xtreme Labs to bring you a world class application with international capabilities.

Groupon’s international expansion has already seen national roll-outs in 47 different countries including Thailand, Hong Kong, France, Germany, and Brazil just to name a few. Now you can get a discount to your favorite meal under the CN Tower, Eiffel Tower, or the Reclining Buddha.
While Groupon may have started with simple deals in your area, it has expanded its product offerings to Groupon Now!, Groupon Goods, and Groupon Getaways as well.

Not sure what the new features do? Read on to find out, perhaps you’ll save a few dollars if you pay close attention.

Groupon Now! is a great new way to find locals deals that you can buy and use on the spot. Using the GPS on your mobile device, Groupon Now! zeros in on your location, and finds deals that are happening around you right now.

Not just any product can be featured on Groupon Goods – the product has to be cool enough that Zack Morris would have owned it back in the day. So if you’re looking for something to wow your friends, Groupon Goods will have it.

Groupon Getaways is exactly what it sounds like. Get great deals on vacations to exotic and far-away places, or find a deal at a local hotel for your next ‘staycation’.
