Josh Stevens, Groupawn

The biggest user on CityPockets, which organizes and maps online coupons, had 85 vouchers in the system three weeks ago. Now the biggest user is the man trying to live off Groupons for a year (he’s 310 days in). “The Groupawn guy broke our site because he tried to import thousands of vouchers into our system,” City Pockets founder Cheryl Yeoh said. “At first, we suspected that it was a scam, until we Googled the guy’s name.”┬áThe average user has about nine vouchers on CityPockets.

    Groupon has a lot of good deals on gym memberships and yoga.

    Dude should probably try some of them.
