Cut to today! We’re not sure whether or not this is routine business—or just how routine this is, but this just showed up in our inbox:
Yes, that is a Groupon—or technically, really, a coupon (even worse)—for a Groupon. A few things to note here:
1. We unsubscribed from Groupon around the time of the IPO. Or at least we attempted to, however unsuccessfully.
2. We definitely don’t receive any Groupon offers on a regular basis. How would we know what to use our Groupon on a Groupon for?
To paraphrase Randy Jackson: Kinda pitchy, dawg. $GRPN recently hit an all-time low when hit $8.85 on Monday (it closed at $8.95). Maybe they should offer a Groupon on shares of $GRPN? We’d buy that. Maybe.
But they’d have to resubscribe us to their email list first.
