    This is not good news for Groupon. With giants like Google and Amazon joining this game, the competition will become very fierce. Another problem Groupon facing is that it’s the products or services that the buyer cares the most. With the increasing number of deals offered, buyers can just visit a daily deal aggregator like http://www.shopway.com to check all the available deals easily. As a user, it makes absolutely no difference to me if I get an email from Groupon, LivingSocial, or ShopWay telling me about a deal, since I’m after the deal itself. With all of these clones coming up, Groupon’s model runs the risk of becoming a commodity.
