It’s pretty obvious that daily deals websites are doing everything they can to come out on top of this new online shopping phenomenon. LivingSocial has the latest example with its 50% off deal involving Whole Foods.
The partnership, a first for both companies, offers subscribers $10 off a $20 purchase with the healthy food retailer.

The Struggles of Daily Deal Sites
Just yesterday it was reported that online coupon sites are struggling to keep the awesome deals coming. It’s not the customers that are finding problems with these sites, in fact, the merchants are the ones trying to keep up.
Many businesses complain that the large discounts are not something they can continue offering as users of Groupon and LivingSocial are becoming accustomed to the low prices.
Not only are these sites battling criticism from the vendors they need to stay open, but they are also battling each other and banks. It didn’t take long before other companies such as Amazon.com and American Express (NYSE: AXP) caught up with what Groupon had to offer.
