Each day, Groupon features unbeatable deals on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in your city. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, Groupon gets discounts you won’t find anywhere else. Launched i n N o v emb e r 2 0 0 8 , Groupon features a daily deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in more than 300 markets and 35 countries, and soon beyond. Groupon has about 1,000 people working in their Chicago headquarters, a growing office in Palo Alto, CA, as well as regional offices in Europe and Latin America and local account executives in many cities. A great price is only half the battle – it’s also got to be a great product or service. Between top-rated business partners and unbeatable prices, you should feel comfortable venturing out and trying something new — just because it’s featured on Groupon. “Gotchas” and buried conditions that sour the experience are a terrible way to accomplish their goal of having you love Groupon. They want each Groupon purchase to feel too good to be true, from the moment you buy to the day you use it. If there’s anything unusual about a deal (e.g. an inconvenient location), they go out of our way to point it out. Groupon grew out of a website called The Point, a website launched in November 2007 that lets you start a campaign asking people to give money or do something as a group — but only once a “tipping point” of people agree to participate. By delaying action until enough people come together to have a real impact, The Point helps consumers, employees, citizens, activists, parents — or anyone — come together and solve problems that they couldn’t solve alone. While Groupon started out as a side project of The Point, it’s taken on a life of its own.
