Update: This really works, I tested it AND it only took 2 days for the deal bucks to be put into my account! Just make sure not to use any promo codes when you do this so it will work. I tested this on a local deal.
Free $25 Living Social Deal Bucks
This is a great deal that won’t last long! Get $25 in Living Social Deal Bucks when you buy any deal at Living Social and check out with MasterPass, for a limited time!
Go here to see the page that advertises it or here for all the details. There doesn’t seem to be restrictions on what you have to buy to get the bucks back (so you might could buy something as small as $5 and get the $25 back). It takes up to 7 days to get the Deal Bucks back into your account. Must purchase by 12/31, while supplies last. Note: This is not valid with any other promotion, so make sure you aren’t combining this with a promo code to make sure it works.
I tested this today buy purchasing a local deal for $10, so once I get the bucks deposited I will update this post with the details (how long it takes to get the bucks, etc.). If anyone tries this out on the “shop“, “gifts” or “escapes” deals, please let me know if it works on those items too (it should work sitewide, just not clear from the limited terms).
A little info on MasterPass: You do not have to have a MasterCard to get this deal. MasterPass is very similar to PayPal, it is just like an online wallet that stores your bank or credit cards more securely for you so that when you check out at most websites, all you have to do is log in, rather than type your card number in each time.
