I have tried to unsubscribe from GroupOn now five times. There are only so many offers to have my legs waxed that I can pass up – especially when the ‘deals’ are suspiciously priced – the ‘discounts’ seem to be calculated as a percentage off a price that is way above the price you can pay going direct in many cases. I only signed up as I was curious about what was on offer. Now I know, I don’t need to get another offer for fish-powered pedicures, anal bleaching or the latest craze in homeopathic massage.
It isn’t that surprising that they are growing so fast though. This is the unsubscribe page I am directed to.
So, you have bad news. Your unsubscribe function doesn’t work. The good news? I can sign up to get more crap. Nice work fellas.
One way I think Groupon became popular was all the talk of a buyout by Yahoo and Google.
Looks like shady practice to me.
Groupon is now valued at 350 USD per registered person. They would be nuts to unsubscribe you.
Sending them 350 USD might get you off their list.
