This LivingSocial Deal Comes With A Free Math Test

Mark sent along this deal that came up on group deal site LivingSocial for his area. You can get two tickets to a Camden, NJ Riversharks game for $10, or four for $26. While $26 is the normal price for two tickets, this makes sense. But it still doesn’t make very much sense. At least no one went for that deal, though, right?

Mark provided a real-life example of how this deal could go wrong.

My friend forwarded this Living Social deal to me last week. She purchased the 4 ticket deal. I got the 2 ticket deal. She feels pretty dumb for not doing the math, first.

Yes. She should.
