Groupon pile on

and to think there was a day when I was skeptical about buying a Groupon:

$2.72 (plus Groupon) for Spunto pizza, organic crust, added mushrooms and two glasses of wine. Not bat ‘tall. And this on the day the deal for Google to buy Groupon for $6 billion seemed imminent.

ScoutMob, Groupon, Daily Deals and the becoming the way of the future for brokesters and deal-mongerers. Is it “retail hacking,” as Wired called it, or are we the consumers — as Max of Inc. magazine put it — being “hacked” by retailers into spending money on stuff we wouldn’t normally buy?
