Groupon.com vs Groupon.ca??

I came across a deal in a google search that linked me to groupon.ca. I have purchased from groupon.com lots of times before without any issues and I assumed they were affiliated but the login info (from Groupon.com) didn't work. Is Groupon.ca legit but just not directly affiliated? Has anyone ever bought something on groupon.ca before?

Thanks!

I had a similar issue the other day, needing to log in and my login credentials at .ca weren't accepted. It was only when I went to .com that it was validated. Very odd, but I don't think the site is anything but legit (though I've not looked at it in detail).

It looks like groupon.ca is for Quebec, while groupon.com is for the rest of Canada and USA.

Very rarely are 2 sides of the same company interlinked in terms of logins.
Amazon is about the only company that I know of offhand that shares login info.

I don't really count eBay as they share the same listings for .com and .ca
