LivingSocial Catching Up With Groupon?

Hitwise has a chart that seems to show LivingSocial catching up with Groupon.

The big driver, of course, seems to be LivingSocial’s huge $20 Amazon coupon for $10 offer, which came in the wake of Amazon making a huge strategic investment in LivingSocial.

Here’s the chart:
