Groupon, LivingSocial Unique Visitors Fall From June Peak, ComScore Says

Groupon Inc. and LivingSocial, the leading daily-deal providers, had fewer weekly unique visitors in August than in mid-June, at the peak, with LivingSocial’s tally dropping at a faster pace, according to ComScore Inc. (SCOR)

Groupon, which plans an initial public offering, had 4.01 million unique visitors in the week that ended Aug. 21, according to Reston, Virginia-based ComScore. While that’s lower than 5.13 million for the week that ended June 12, it’s higher than the tally for the first week of the year.

LivingSocial, which is weighing an IPO, had 1.81 million unique visitors in the Aug. 21 period, down from 3.94 million in mid-June, and less than 2.08 million at the beginning of the year.
