Here are my suggestions to on how to get a Groupon Refund and the e-mail response I received.
My 5 lessons learned from my Groupon refund experience (watch the videos) with Posh Nails Spa in Buckhead
1. I suggest that sponsors of the show offer my mommy viewers a promotional discount like free shipping of $10-50 off as an incentive and way to track the results of the sponsorship. But I’d advise that if they want to work with a dedicated deal site in the future to consider what their goal is, to consider it a marketing expense not a revenue generator. They should also be prepared (with additional staff and supplies) to handle the influx of customer.
2. Before you buy a discount offer read the fine print and follow-up with a phone call to see if there are additional restrictions.
3. Check the online reviews of the business offering a discount. Sites like Yelp, Kudzu and Angie’s List are known for having honest reviews. I include reviews in my sponsored posts like this one for TCB Removal Services because I want to ensure I’m referring moms to reputable businesses.
