Perhaps the least-known fact about many of these group-buying sites is that you can change your mind about a purchase and get your money back or credit (unredeemed and/or unprinted vouchers). Typically, the restriction is that there are only a certain number of days after purchase that the return offer stands. With LivingSocial, you can let the site know (even via Twitter) within five days that you want to return a voucher, and you have 30 days to return a travel deal. “You get a full refund to your credit card, no questions asked,” says Griffin. In most cases, Groupon will provide site credit toward a future purchase. And Kgbdeals may offer a refund within seven business days of a voucher delivery if you change your mind.
