Some helpful explanation (directly from today’sÂ Groupon Deal Alert):Â
Since this is everyone’s first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Detroit: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won’t find anywhere else. We call it “collective buying power.”
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (15 for today’s deal) sign up by the end of the day, you’ll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires-today’s expires in six months). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won’t be charged),Â so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It’s nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life’s cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
It’s a win-win situation, since you get a great deal AND the company benefits from your business! Another cool feature: Groupon offers can be gifted to others (since you pay via credit card when you agree to an offer)!
Groupon looks like a great way to save money andÂ I’m so glad it’s finally hereÂ (our friends in Cleveland really love their daily Groupon deals)! If you own a business, you can learn how to work with Groupon to develop a featured deal. If you don’t live in Detroit, check to see if Groupon is already operating in a large city near you!
