I ordered a t-shirt on the 30th of November giving it plenty of time to be delivered for Christmas, its now January 1st and the item still hasn't been delivered, can't get in touch with them over the phone due to constant busy lines and being put on hold so being forced to deal with a man over email that keeps stating delivery dates which never seem to arrive, I wouldn't recommend ordering from them unless you just want to throw your money away
I am so disappointed, I don't know why it keep saying my emailaddress is not sign up because i saved both my username and password for this website (groupon) in my computer so i don't have to re enter again but when i try to login, it says your email address has not registered. I have more then $30 in my account so they took that money and refused to answer any of my emails... I used to love groupon but NOW !!!! be careful guys they will take your money.
I purchased a jewelry box on December 7th through groupon and its now December 31 and my jewelry box has not been shipped. I asked groupon for refund to my credit card and they offered to give me a credit towards my next groupon. If they can't help their customers then they will end up losing tons of future customers. Not cool at all GROUPON you suck!
I submitted two orders towards the beginning of December. Usually when I do this one gets to me before the other, so I wanted to see if I could get lucky and get one of them to me before the 7-10 days. It's been 3 weeks and neither of my orders have even been processed. They each have a tracking number, but there aren't even any packages to go with them. Seriously the worst experience I've had with an online retailer.

I attempted to purchase a refurbished laptop from groupon. they sent me several emails saying that the transaction didn't process and the purchase did not go thru. based on this, i made other purchases. THREE DAYS after the attempted purchase, i checked my bank account to find that the charge HAD been put thru and that it was overdrafting my bank account. I spent another THREE DAYS trying to get my money back and my bank refusing to file a dispute over the charge! DO NOT BUY FROM GROUPON!!!
Purchased iron ,didnt work ,i told them i had no collect + in my area and asked them if there was another option of sending it back ,they said no ,so basically id have to send it back by post which was going to cost me €36 ,ended up throwing it in the bin ,not worth the hassle ,stay well away from them .
I ordered a watch as a Christmas present. I gave plenty of time, ordering it way before Christmas. I had even ordered a pair of boxers after this which arrived. I have still not received my watch 4 weeks down the line. I tried ringing the customer service line a few days after the 7 working day delivery date. Even the number wasn't easy to find! The person on the phone told me I would definitely receive my watch before Christmas. I have rung again today and am still on the phone 10 minutes later, haven't even spoken to someone yet.. not impressed!
Went on the groupon South Africa site looking for buah getaways for me and my family and i came across the Getaways Farms deal which really was tempting ,a buffet and a game drive which is what we just wanted.We went to the Getaway farms i have no words to describe what we saw it was a horrible place,the buffet was wasnt even a buffet but a one plate served meal with tasteless food ,no desert,a tractor is what carried us into the so called game .The manager Tanya was so rude.
Groupon should stop advertising some usless struggling businesses on their site,which makes someone wonder what groupon is all about.buy deals from groupon and you will lose a whole lot more than just money
I purchased 10k rope3.5m-24 : Mens Solid 10kt Gold 3.2mm 24" Rope chain from Groupon for close to $300. I purchased it on October 2nd and received it on October 20th. It was for a Christmas gift. I gave it to him on Christmas and the item is already falling apart. I contacted Groupon and they will not do anything as it is outside of the 14 day return period. If a company won't guarantee the quality of an item outside of 14 days that should be the first red flag. I am on the phone with my credit card company trying to dispute the charge but I don't know what luck I will have. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this company. They won't stand behind their crappy items. -Holly
I have no problem with Groupon in general. actually everything i have bought from them has been great. But i just bought a Body Shop groupon 2 weeks ago and it expires on Dec 31st. I thought it was a great deal---buy it for $15 but get $30. But when i went shopping there right before Christmas and on Boxing Day, the deals that the store had were even better than the groupon's 50% savings. and, i wasn't allowed use the groupon on any of the gift sets or sale items, so i ended up buying something that i actually didn't want to because i wanted to use it before its expiration. So my advice is to buy this groupon only if it is not during the Christmas season when The Body Shop already has amazing deals.
I have found a FEW room rates that saved us some dollars. This past year there were a couple that we found and liked very much. I had to do some work to find the deals and then purchase them so it would have been much easier to just book them straight with the business. On the NEGATIVE side I purchased a couple of services that just did NOT work out. One business wanted to charge me a lot more so I did not use the coupon and it seems that Groupon is keeping my money. This is not the way to keep your customers happy and is far from my expectations. Be very careful when dealing with Groupon and be sure to read all of the disclaimers and links, then keep copies of these documents. If it does not work out expect that you will not have a recourse and they will make the decision not to refund your money. Making a purchase for a room within a few days may work in your benefit and I may try it again.
I went to the site of Groupon and what wonderful deals . I place a large order, got ready to check out and was informed of the sad news that they don't ship to Alaska. Now in the part that I live in we don't pay sales tax and the things were cheap and things I remember from my mom using with them still lasting today. Well guess I have to move back to the lower 48 if I want Groupon to ship to me. Enjoy for I know I would have. Happy Days in 2016
Groupon has really gone down hill! There order descriptions are very misleading. Customer service is very hard to communicate with. Once I finally received a response from them a $5 discount was to be placed on my account. It never was.
I made a purchase on Dec. 12th, 2015. It has been over two weeks and I still have not received my item. According to the tracking information, I will have to wait another week.
I do not recommend making a purchase from Groupon!!
You have to read every small detail in the coupon like if you are a lawyer! What is this, a different kind of a fraud?
I paid for this but i cannot get benefit from the promotion, i cannot get my money back either.
The problem is that it is not redeemed. How can you know that it can expire BEFORE the date of the event? it is crazy.
I will not recommend Groupon to anyone, for sure!
Go with the real deals, not the ones hided between sentences in small letters. What a shame.
Ordered a laptop on 12/11, had delivery within 7-11 days, as of today still have not received. Groupon keeps sending tracking number but problem with this is I live in Tennessee, the package is headed to California. Customer service both in person and by email has been no help. Not sure if I will purchase future items with this problem I am having with no help from Groupon.
Sometimes the restaurants go out of Groupon service and then u can't use your Groupon with them, often seems to happen with my favorite places. There are too many rules or regulations to follow. You might go to use it and the restaurant might say it's only for an appetizer or a full meal or during a certain time or day - too much hassle. If they got out those kinks up front when people buy Groupon, and not after, it would be better to use.
I bought two sets of Christmas lights from Touch of Eco in September. I but them up in December and they worked for a few days then died.
Since it was beyond the return time they won't do anything about this. Two sets both don't work.
I've never had a good experience using Groupon. Each time I've tried there were so many restrictions on the purchase that I never even bothered using it.
My husband has a business and when he looked into how they are set up, it is crazy. Groupon takes like 50% of the money transaction leaving nothing for the merchant. When you factor in that those who shop with Groupon are only bargain buyers, they think those deals should always apply at the stores. Makes for an non-healthy business concept.
Have only had limited experience with groupon in the restaurant area for one half off coupons and once it was a bonafide half off excellent experience and another time the advertiser put limitations on the times and dates they did not have stated in the initial details, but this was not the fault of groupon and I didn't even think to report them.
I've shopped on Groupon quite a bit and lately they seem less and less particular about their products. If you're looking for haircuts, massages, personalized items, photography, or the occasional $15 for $30 coupon Groupon is pretty good.
When it comes to actual products like electronics or toys you can find WAY better deals on Amazon or Ebay.
I'm not saying Groupon is bad, just buying products from them is bad. Most of the services you find on Groupon are EXCELLENT deals.
I bought my boyfriend a very nice watch from Groupon for Christmas. I was so excited, but when I opened up my package it was some cheap watch case. My invoice said some Brittain Hill and shipped to me. I called Groupon expecting them to fix it. Maybe not on time which sucked, but ok. NO, the want me to ship what I got back, and then refund my money. Only the refund wasn't until they got the product that was shipped to me by mistake. So not only is it three days away from Christmas, and I have no gift. I also am shorted out the money I was able to spend on him.
I purchased an I pad through groupon which came without a plug!
When it emailed them (since this is the only way to contact them) I gave them my mobile number to call, in the e mail, as they requested it. I got the automated e mail response, but then nothing. No call and no further e mail as promised, I therefore emailed them again and again received the 24 hrs e mail response , I only had requested a plug to be sent to me.
After the fourth very frustrating e mail I received an e mail saying they have sent a plug and then promotely received a foreign adapter plug which was of no use whatsoever.
They have still failed to address the issue despite another e mail!!!
There are websites that allow users to post coupons so other people can use them. These websites such as retailmenot and groupon allow you to use multiple use online and instore promo codes or sales. Everytime I buy something online or even when I go to the mall or something I make sure to look up a promo code. Such as when I ordered a new pair of shoes Kyrie 1 Double Nickels In case you were wondering I used groupon and got a discount. I Love Groupon and RetailMeNot I would give them a 10/10.
SHORT REVIEW: Use This If You Want A Coupon & Get A Good Deal Works For Almost Any Store.
I have bought a lot of stuff off of groupon over the past few years and they have good discounts on all things. You need to find what your looking for and sometimes you can also use a Promo code which can get you extra savings. If you have a problem with a merchant and want your money back than just contact customer service and they will help you. I have never had a problem getting my money back.
He comprado un montón de cupones y productos en la pagina y en general estoy contenta. Con los cupones de servicios no he tenido problemas, excepto mi ultima compra de una limpieza dental en la clinica CLIDEENTAL, Madrid, Sainz de Baranda, que no me han hecho todo lo que prometia el cupon que sería. En cuanto a los productos, pues he aprendido que no porque se vendan en Groupon son de calidad, he comprado, entre otras, un juego de sartenes Santa Clara (si no recuerdo mal) y se me rompió el mango de una de ellas después de usarla 2 veces y la única solución que se me ofreció fue devolverlas todas y la devolución del dinero, cuando me habría gustado que me la cambien o que me manden otro juego y poder devolver el roto. Pero si, en general recomiendo la pagina, solo que hay que informarse sobre las marcas, cuando de productos se trate, y cuando de servicios, pedir que se cumpla con lo prometido en los cupones. Seria bueno que se puedan valorar todos los productos y servicios adquiridos y también, quizás, llevar un control de calidad, poner unos estándares de cumplimiento de los servicios...
ordered case of wine, did not receive, I was then told I had been refunded
which was not the case, they told me to contact the merchant, got no response
Their staff seem particularly inept
I have written to their managing director
I would not recommend them or use again
