I was recently alerted by a client that my business is listed on Groupon. I investigated and found it is listed twice under two different categories. I do not have an account with Groupon and never have. Both listings have long descriptions of my business that are...

Groupon - Modern Slavery

1.4
Details
Groupon will not accept me as a Merchant, unless I work for them for 210 days (for 10h per day) for free. As a microblading artist, I've been imposed a Merchant contract to sell 600 vouchers to Groupon customers (equivalent to 2,100 hours of work) to be paid £50 per voucher, which barely covers the costs of my business. Each voucher is equivalent to 4h of work. This was my only option if I wanted to advertise with Groupon, no chance of negotiation. Naturally, I did not sign the contract. For me this is only one more example of modern slavery. Angry

I pulled up directions to Mel Fisher's Museum in Sebastian Florida and saw a Groupon ad. It said I would save from $28 normally to $15 tickets so I bought four. When I got to the museum they said their tickets are always $5 and didn't know anything about this Groupon...

Groupon Advertisement Review from Howell, Michigan

Groupon Ads are obnoxious. Groupon pushes owning experiences as the ideal and in one particular ad, flashes a picture of a person with two sport cars as an example of how not to live. The implication is sports car owners don't know how to live. Well, obviously, Groupon folks haven't had the privilege and fun, fun, fun experience of owning and driving your own sports car. I have one and wouldn't trade it for any of the mindless experiences promoted by Groupon in their obnoxious ads. Get a clue Groupon.

I was browsing through groupon looking to score a good deal when I found a huge scam.First of all they are trying to pass off a cheaply made generic bag for $179 bucks as retail, and is now only $19.99. See those kinds of generic purses all the time, there is no way...

Judging by these pics, I'm sure there are many other products that they overprice the retail. They're claiming you get 80% or more discount on already cheap items. What liars.

Groupon - Should be closed down!

1.0
Details
Groupon are the worst company that I have ever had the misfortune of having to deal with. I purchased a voucher for dental braces over one month ago now. I was told by the dentist that my teeth were not suitable. I am still waiting for Groupon to refund my £795. I spent over one hour trying to sort this out with them on the phone yesterday; they wouldn't even put my call through to a manager and basically advised that there is nothing that they can do despite me advising that I was not hanging up the phone until my money was back in my account. When I purchased the coupon, it said clearly on their advertisement that if not found suitable for the treatment that a refund would be issued straight away. I have about 20 emails in my inbox from them fobbing me off and even the dentist couldn't get them to issue the refund. I think that they should be closed down. They have wasted so much of my time now; i'm really annoyed.

Groupon Very Misleading

1.0
Details
I bought a house cleaning Groupon deal. I put in my profile only send offers to my zip code. I followed directions to get an appointment to clean my house and was told they do not come to my zip code. Emailed Gropon and received a response 3 days later telling me to "read the fine print", even though I requested only deals in my area. And I only had 3 days for refund. I think Groupon is a snake oil business. A 3 day refund window? Most businesses have 30 day money back policy. Not Groupon, they prey on busy people.

To be honest, I am extremely upset with Groupon. Both my fiancé and I have used this service for goods, and most, if not all have had to be returned due to damage or lack of quality. I gave Groupon ONE more chance and bought a comforter and said "if this one turns out...

Agreed. I have bought three items from Groupon and on each occasion the quality has been shocking.

A pair of "crystal" earrings which were not - they were very tiny, very flimsy silver-coloured metal with no discernible crystal anywhere in or near them; a bed linen set which is made of such poor quality, thin cotton you can see through it and "hotel quality" pillows which are so poorly filled they could have simply sold them as pillow cases instead. NEVER again.

There is nowhere to individually review any of the items they sell (not that I can find anyway) so you can't warn anyone not to buy the crud they sell.

I shall be sticking to shop-bought items in future. I may end up paying a a little more but at least I can see that it is of a decent standard and I'm not being lied to.

I bought "$11.99 for an Oral-B 12-Pack of Replacement Toothbrush Heads ($60 List Price)" from Groupon. The product is low-quality junk. It is not Oral-B, but some kind of "compatible" variety. It breaks after 3-5 uses instead of holding up for 3 months as Oral-B would....

I bought the exact same thing from Groupon. Although even after 2 months I never received it.

It took groupon 2 months to refund me. A ten dollar value took all this time to investigate. Groupon's reply time is far less than par and they're email communication is faulty as I am asked to reply to an email only to receive 2 other emails stating the replied account doesn't take inbound message and please visit their website to communicate with them.

I am extremely unsatisfied and not happy with them. I don't recommend them anymore nor will I continue to purchase from Groupon
