I bought the deal. I know that 3 friends bought the deal using my link. But I never got emails confirming each purchase like I was supposed to- my settings are set to notify me whenever someone uses my link to buy. I have bought living social deals before and the email notification always worked quickly.
Anyone else having this experience? I'm wondering if it's because they are just backlogged with orders- over 1 million sold! I hope so. The only thing better than a half-price gift card is a free gift card!
