LivingSocial offers deals in 25 new markets, including Milwaukee.

LivingSocial, which operates a web site where consumers can find daily coupons for restaurants, hotels, spas, bars and sporting events, announced this week it has gone live in 25 new markets across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

Among the new cities in the United States are Cincinnati, Honolulu and Milwaukee. The new Canadian cities are Calgary, Edmonton and Mississauga and the new U.K. cities are Glasgow and Leeds. With the expansion, LivingSocial offers deals  in 89 markets.

“We’re really excited to work with merchants in all of these new markets to offer residents and visitors a chance to try out restaurants, shops, services and attractions at amazing prices,” says Tim O’Shaughnessy, CEO and co-founder. “We’re growing fast, but our deal experience will remain the same—top quality merchants, significant savings and customized and tailored deals.”

The announcement comes only a few weeks after the daily deal site announced it would begin offering neighborhood-specific deals to bargain seekers in Washington, D.C., and New York City.

  • LivingSocial and similar sites will continue to expand as the trend to save money continues around the world. This is great for both consumers and business, as consumers can take advantage of great deals to save money and business can use these companies to expand their customer base. A great site for consumers to use is http://www.dailydealpool.com, a site that compiles a list of daily deals and sales in your area and emails them to your inbox daily. This keep the consumer from having to search through all the deals and website to find what they need.

  • You can also stop at www.GroupBuyUnited.com. This is a site that puts all kinds of deal sites together (e.g. LivingSocial.com, GroupOn.com, etc...) It lists these kinds of sites so you can save some time and money on deals.
