Me + 3 = Fun with Friends for Free

Bonding with friends is an important part of your life – but it’s not like you have a Swiss bank account set aside for golf lessons, winery tours, and other memory-making experiences.

To the rescue: LivingSocial’s “Me + 3” program, which drops the cost of your deal down to $0 if three other people buy the same deal using a link you gave them. First, check the fine print – some deals are not eligible for Me + 3.

How does it work? Let’s say you want to go on a chocolate tour (yes, deals like this do exist.)  If the Deal is eligible for Me + 3, after you buy the deal, you’ll receive a special referral link to share with your friends. You can post the unique link on Facebook, tweet it, or send it to your bffs in an email.

If three friends purchase the same deal using the link you provided, your deal becomes free.

It’s a win-win-win situation: Your friends get a great deal on a delicious experience, you don’t have to pay a dime and — best of all — you and your friends will always remember the day you spent sampling gourmet chocolate and taking in that sweet sugar rush together.
