Groupon: Bait and Switch
I have received 3 emails fro a Groupon Getaway 4.5 Star South Beach Hotel from $119 per night. You go to the offer and the calendar shows nothing less than $189 per night.
I have complained to them and they give me answers like "I just double checked the deal, and it says that prices start at $189. There is always the possibility that there had been dates available at $119 that have now sold out. However, everything I see now says a higher price point for the deal.
That was sent to me after the second time the offer was made, on 1/6. Even though I clicked on the offer moments after receiving it.
So, today; I get the same offer and click on it within 10 minutes with the same results.
This is a classic "bait and switch" where a fake price is presented and when you go to purchase you are only offered a more expensive price.
Bait and Switch is illegal and Groupon should be made to pay a fine or provide $119 rooms.
