    …”However, the sites have met mixed reviews from merchants, who complain daily deals don’t encourage enough repeat business or increased spending…”

    and we’re surprised by this? once you create this monster, be prepared to keep feeding it fresh meat. coupon sites, extreme couponing, etc., do nothing more than encourage more of it.

    my niece, for example, just purchased a paint job for a bedroom for $79 off of living social. a money loser for sure for the painter. you think she’s going to pay full price for the next? wrong. she’s looking for the next coupon deal (or maybe uncle jeff…)
