Amazon sells 1m daily deals vouchers in 17 hours

Amazon sold 1m daily deals vouchers in 17 hours yesterday through its AmazonLocal offers site, raising questions about the future of its strategic partner Living Social.

The e-tailer sold out of vouchers that offered a $10 Amazon giftcard for $5, presumably clocking up a huge number of new members as a result.

In January last year Living Social sold 1.4m $10-for-$20 Amazon gift cards, so Amazon already knew the tactic would work.
