The first 2 times I have used LivingSocial have left a terrible nasty sour taste in my mouth. I believe that they are extremely deceitful in advertising for these companies, and the companies lose business because of it.
First deal -- $35 for free eye exam, lenses and frames up to $245 value. NYC. Sounds great right? I did my research before purchasing the deal and blah blah blah. Purchased it, went to the place and realized that the markup of the frames were WAY too much, forcing a patron to come out of pocket around $300 or more. The advertised "81% off with this deal" is DECEIT. If you do the math, you are only getting 81% off the lenses, the eye exams are already free and a typical pair of Raybans in the store are marked up to $450+. (we all know Raybans cost around $180 tops). Couldn't get a refund from LS so they gave me their invisible fake LS bucks and encouraged me to purchase another crap deal.
Second time, I purchased a 50% savings, $20 for $40 worth of shit at decorative words. Did ALL my research and purchased that deal. The company advertises free shipping but apparently doesn't work with the LS deal, so 25% of your voucher will already go to shipping. I put 2 items in my cart and the entire order with shipping was around $38. When I went to check out, the deal wouldn't work. Apparently your order has to be over like $30 BEFORE adding shipping. I don't know if this makes sense to anyone else, but IMO it seems as though you are NOT going to be able to purchase anything without coming out of pocket and paying the company directly. Called decorative words and they insinuated that I was cheap for not getting more than $40 worth of merchandise.
Basically, I'm done with living social. The companies they deal with are shit, and their customer service is just awful. AWFUL!!
