Deal of the day websites...good idea or just plain marketing scam?


In Ireland we have recently become inundated with these deal of the day sites. Pigsback, Groupon, Living Social....the list goes on. You know how it works, you log on, find a deal that's allegedly worth say €150 but you only pay say €40 for the same service. The Consumer assoc of Irl however is saying that 33% of all consumers of these sites are lodging complaints and they are opening a full-on investigation. The complaints mostly surround the actual discount & the availability of appointments or bookings etc. Any thoughts or experiences yourselves?
