GroupOn Deals, upto 90% off, how real are they?

GroupOn is advertising heavily to promote the deals. e.g. an ad as seen today

Unfortunately, no local eatery can run a business while offering 90% off, unless its offering is the rotten tomatoes. And, GroupOn takes its cut.

Would love to be proven wrong.

Of course, when you click on the Ad, it is for a local Spa. Nothing to do with local eats.
