Through February 22, Living Social is offering 20% off purchases using promo code “MYFEB.” This is a great deal for those who were going to purchase something on this deal site anyways, but there are some exclusions:

  • Not valid on any escapes or events – so if the item URL includes “/escapes” or “/event” the 20% off coupon will not apply
  • The item/deal must be priced $100 or less for it to apply – so if the item is more it will not apply the 20% to just the first $100, but instead not work at all
  • Will not work on Android mobile app-enabled purchases – this is no big deal, just use your computer
  • This is only valid for the first 10,000 purchases – not sure how long this will last, but my assumption is it will work all of today especially since I didn’t see any great national deals going on
  • One code use per credit card – if you have multiple purchases then just use another credit card

Also, figuring out were to enter the promotion code can be semi confusing – after adding the item to your cart that you want to purchase, click the “Redeem promo code” link on the next page and enter the code.

Anyone able to save some money?

    Not to be a cynic, but the one time I bought something off LivingSocial, there was a fraudulent charge on my cc a couple of months later. It was a new-ish card and I only have so many transactions that were out of the ordinary (I shop quite a bit online and off). The purchase from living social was the only suspect one, the rest of standard run of the mill purchases. It was the first time there was a fraudulent charge to my account.

    I know that fraudulent charges can happen anywhere along a cycle (at merchant, at credit card network), but I’m not confident of buying things from Living Social anymore (at least with a credit card). If you google around, I think a few users with the similar experience have the same suspicion.

    I am a Living Social and Groupon addict. Never had any issues, and I’ve scored some excellent deals. Will look at this later and let you know if I nab anything!

    Everyone’s experience can be different, I suppose. I have purchased a number of Living Social “coupons” (as well as Groupon, Travelzoo and DealChicken) and haven’t had any difficulty with any of them. I just saved $3.80 on a $19 coupon for $119 worth of HVAC service I can use with the company with which I already have a service contract. Otherwise, I would have paid $69.

    This is a good deal and I purchased the gambling 5 hour day cruise. I have had good experiences with Groupon and Living Social and never had any problmes with security of credit cards. To clarify,once I purchased an item with this offering, it would not allow me to purchase additional ones even when I changed the credit card. I believe you will need to change the name to exceed the limit. Thanks for informing your readersof this deal.
