Limelight Deals is similar to Groupon or LivingSocial: After signing up, participants receive offers by e-mail. Deals can be purchased online, and the customer takes the coupon to the retailer or restaurant where it is honored. A benefit that Limelight Deals has over those other, nationally-reaching programs is that the deals offered are truly local.

Each day’s deal is offered by a local business users and readers know, featuring discounts of 50 percent to 90 percent. There is a limited time or number of days that deals will be active. When enough participants purchase the deal that day, the deal will "tip" or become active
