Vancouver Daily Group Buy Widget

Update: this widget has been replaced with this page: http://www.forumvancouver.com/pages/vancouvergroupbuy/

Hopefully you've noticed a summary of the Daily Group Buy sites (Groupon, Grooster, Wagjag, Steal the Deal, and Team Buy) on the left hand side of the forum. I added it when I couldn't update the group buy thread manually.

Vancouver Group Buy Websites RSS Feed

It's also viewable here on the blog on the right hand side!

The "widget" draws upon an RSS feed that I created by using a tool to extract the relevant information from each website, so it updates automatically when the deal of the day changes. It goes a bit wonky sometimes due to the data extraction method but should mostly work.

The feed address is: http://feeds.feedburner.com/vancouvergroupbuy if you are interested.
