Depends on what you are buying from groupon. Lots of people don't read fine prints anymore but when you purchase anything from Groupon, you gotta learn to read the fine prints especially if it's a service or travel or even vouchers. Be aware of the expiration dates. I have purchased a lot of things from this site since 2011. I'm lucky enough that I didn't have any bad experience from them. I love how they have local deals and lots of goods lately. I buy stuff to from Aliexpress or Wish.com and I think it's very comparable when you are using groupon. Groupon ships items faster than buying stuff from aliexpress.
I have purchased a couple groupons and I have discovered why they are selling their product/service at a discount. Most that I have redeemed I have had to fight to get an appointment. Other times the services were either in super awkward locations or just overall terrible service. The restaurant Groupons have been the best purchases I have made. I like to try new places, so why not at a discounted price. But... redeem quickly. Groupon seems to be the last attempt to keep the business afloat. I went to use one of mine close to the expiry date and the restaurant was closed.
I have to agree about the fact they have great opportunity about locals activities, but they have a horrible customer service: I've bought for a store that finally close just after the offer. 4 months to get the refund.....
I love using Groupon for local deals. We like to dine out and go to local events, so we use Groupon. AWESOME deals!!! I love that Groupon always has promotion codes to use to get an extra 15-20% off. If you decide you didn't want to purchase something and would like a refund, it is super easy to do and you are automatically refunded. Only downfall, I wish they had more of a selection of local groupons.
I truly love Groupon ! I do think you have to search long and hard sometimes to find a great deal, Sometimes they are masked as being great but really they aren't so much.
Even their refund policy is great, I had to use it once and did not have a problem at all!
Groupon is amazing! Great for local deals for all sort of things. I always check Groupon for deals before I spend full pop on something.
Groupon has great local deals for food, hotels and the like, but be careful when ordering physical goods, especially tech. Often it's made in China, sold for three times higher than Ebay and the like and not good quality. A mixed bag, great site but know what you're getting into!
So many great deals. I like to use this when I'm going on trips to try new things in the cities I visit
I got the groupon app and check it on a daily basis, that's one of those things I make sure I check ALL the time! They have amazing deals and if you check them often enough, you will find really good stuff, like Ipads, Macbooks, Iphones, Go Pro Cameras, etc. You just have to look at it often enough and make sure you grab when you see something you like because things usually don't last very long.
I rate the prices average, only because somethings are still quite a bit expensive and you could get a better deal when the store themselves have sales, also because some of their electronics are refurnished and not everyone feels comfortable buying things that are refurnished but for the most part prices aren't bad. You do get a huge discounts on some things!
I love this site for deals on local food, spas, activities, and hotels. They have so much! I have never ordered from groupon goods but that is supposed to give you discounts on good.
