Groupon To Extend Vouchers By Up To 12 Months

Groupon has announced it will be extending vouchers ‘whenever possible’ for up to 12 months. At this stage it doesn’t look like these coupons are being extended automatically at all. I think in some cases a refunded would be more appropriate but this is better than nothing.

My main concern is the insolvency of the business I have a few restaurants, auto detailing and alignment Groupon’s.

The good thing is the Groupon will retain the paid price if that happens for you to use on another Groupon.

I think a bigger concern would be the solvency of Groupon itself, as it’s a penny stock now.

Nice announcement but I’ve yet to see any action on my vouchers. I think for the most part, successful businesses are not signing up for Groupon. It’s a method to drum up revenue for smaller, lesser known and comparatively financially insecure enterprises. Considering this theory, I’m willing to accept the equivalent of store credit because the chances of all these businesses making it out of the crisis is slim

I emailed Groupon a few days ago about a bar I have a Groupon for. I asked them to extend the expiration date and they refused, only offered an exchange. Hope my email prompted this announcement because they handled it pretty poorly.

I wouldn’t trust anything they say. I’ve been buying Groupons since they had one deal, a different deal each day in all of New York City, and the deal was only ‘on’ if a ‘group’ of at least 50 bought it that day. You got points, including bonus points for being the first (in all of NYC) and first 10 to commit. Their customer service was excellent if you ever had a problem, meaning the business was out of business or something like closed for some reason for weeks extending through the date. When they took over Living Social, their customer service devolved to the level that Living Social was at, at least by that time. If a business is now out of business permanently, they screw you around and don’t want to refund the Groupon, as they have been doing to me since I contacted them a month ago about a business that I bought a Groupon for and was driven out of business after over 100 years by the skyrocketing rents driving most independent businesses and most supermarkets out of business. A business, Groupon, that I would once have given 5 star reviews for, I posted a one star review about on a ‘rip off report’ type site last week.
