Groupon (GRPN -2.1%), falling today in sympathy with Facebook, has bought Savored, a provider of an online restaurant reservation platform. Unlike OpenTable (OPEN -1.9%), which acts as a straight-forward reservation platform, Savored focuses on moving unsold reservation inventory via promotions, both through its site and mobile apps. That naturally meshes well with Groupon's daily deals business, as well as its Groupon Now! real-time deals product.
