Groupon picks winner to live off its coupons for a year


If nothing else, Josh Stevens should have some great stories to tell as he tries to survive for a year using nothing but free Groupon coupons. No cash, no personal possessions, and limited direct contact with friends and family.

Even if he doesn't win the $100,000 prize, Stevens, 28, believes he will have a great time using the company's coupons for free food, hotel rooms, bus rides and activities, such as skydiving, while traveling the country. His journey will start on May 10.

"It's not a bad way to go see the country for free," said Stevens, who Groupon chose from 20,000 applicants in its "Live Off Groupon" contest.
