Groupon started as a deal-of-the-day recommendation service for consumers. Every 24 hours, Groupon broadcasted, and still does, an electronic coupon for a restaurant or a store in the subscribers registered city, recommending that local service while also offering its subscribers a 40% to 60% discount if they purchased that service.
Groupon is the company which has brought a revolution to the small and medium business community. This is our review of the internet giant where we discuss the pros and cons of this massive business, which can affect you in some way either as a customer or as a business owner. Groupon is one of the few companies which have been able to oust giants such as Living Social – partially owned business by one of the internet’s biggest retailer – Amazon.
What exactly is Groupon?
To put in very simple words, Groupon is the world’s biggest e-commerce deals offering place. It gets in touch with businesses who want to increase their traffic and reaches an agreement with them where, in return for a promise of greater exposure, they offer their products or services at a reduced rate to the customers who purchase these discount coupons from Groupon. The coupon only becomes active once a specific number has signed up for it which uses the group aspect of the website. The word Groupon is itself derived from Group and Coupon merged together.
The initial model of the business consisted of offering a single deal in an inbox which has now evolved to become a marketplace of coupons. It has more than 10,000 employees and operates in around 45 countries around the world. It has an active customer base of 48 million, with the total number of current deals at any one time exceeding 400,000. The popularity and importance of Groupon can be judged from the fact that it passed an offer of $6 Billion from Google in the December of 2010.
To summarize it, if you want to enjoy something at a deal in your locality or on your travels, then this is the site which you want to visit. On the other hand, if you are a new business trying to expand your customer base and increase your brand recognition, then you can list a deal on their website opening yourself to the millions of people who visit Groupon on a daily basis. Unlike classified advertisements, there are no charges for getting your deal featured on the website.
A Brief History
Groupon was launched back in November 2008 in Chicago. However, it soon spread to other major metropolitan areas due to its resounding success. Founded by Andrew Mason, Eric Lefkofsky, and Brad Keywell, it was one of the fastest growing companies of the era and it still retains the record for making the fastest $1 Billion in sales.
The idea for Groupon came to Andrew Mason when he failed to cancel his contract with a cell phone company. He thought that there just has to be a way to leverage the bargaining power of the masses against giant corporations. The founders, Mason and Lefkofsky, decided that the cause would be to save money. Their first deal was a half-priced pizza on the first-floor of the building in Chicago where they had their first office.
Groupon saw growth at a phenomenal rate where the number of its employees increased from just over a dozen to 350 in just over a year.
A short while before the fifth anniversary of the company in November 2013, the website was completely overhauled and many new features were added which changed the outlook of the company which was originally focused on delivering one deal of the day to a complete marketplace.
In its comparatively young history, in internet terms, the website has acquired a number of small businesses and established partnerships with others. Many deal-of-the-day in other major lucrative markets were bought the examples of which include the Indian website sosasta.com, the Malaysian Groupsmore.com along with a number of startups such as Blink, Breadcrumb, Boomerang, Mertado, Snap etc.
CLAIM TO FAME
The reasons behind the popularity of Groupon are many however they are some which particularly stand out from the rest. The most important ones are:
- Innovation – It revolutionized the distribution of coupons
- Consumer Friendly – Groupon works in favor of the consumer and uses their collective bargaining power for their benefit
- Exposure – Small and medium businesses with small advertising budget can get visibility and local exposure which helps the business in the long run
- Community – Groupon has absolutely massive loyal and active community which keeps coming back looking for deals on a nearly daily basis

All of the categories are further divided into subcategories, which help you narrow down your searches and take you directly to the product you’re looking for. The text and the aesthetics of the website ensure that everything is readable and is easy on the eyes.

Our Groupon coupon codes of August 2016 will help you buy the products which are available on Groupon’s website at even more favorable rates.

There are huge benefits to using Groupon for especially during the hard times when money is tight. For businesses, it attracts a lot of new customers who may not be familiar with their business while attracting a similar number of customers through marketing would have required great effort and a large marketing budget which is usually not always possible for small businesses. It also helps in moving the inventory as you can offer the slow moving items or underutilized services at a discounted price.
What Groupon really does best for businesses is that it helps in building a relationship between customers and local businesses instead of just creating one-time purchases.
Getting the Most Out of the Coupons
- Don’t give out personal details on a website imitating Groupon especially look at the top in the address bar and ensure that it is on Groupon.com and uses SSL encryption
- To check for SSL, see that the website address uses https instead of HTTP
- Look at the number of buyers, if the item belongs to a popular category with buyers usually in the range of 5K+ and there are only a handful of buyers for this specific product then take it as a red flag and look for other similar products but with better statistics
- You should search the website on Google and see that the business has its own decent website. If the website looks like it has been put together in 5 minutes then you’re probably taking a chance buying that Groupon
- Read the fine print especially if you’re taking a trip on Groupon as you don’t want to go to your destination and find that kids were not allowed in the deal and will have to be accommodated separately or it was only a single person deal when you’re on your honeymoon
The bottom line here is that Groupon really is one of the best resources to get amazing deals. The catch is that not every “deal” is amazing. We, at Rebates Zone, thoroughly check all the listings before putting them on our website to ensure that our visitors get the best deal without any risk.
How to Use Them
Using them is very simple indeed. Please follow the following steps:
- Go to their website and browse the deals.
- Select the one that you like best.
- It will ask you to log in if you haven’t already done so.
- When you log in, there is a use gift code link on the Complete Your Order Page.
- Click on this link and you will see a box where the Groupon coupon code August 2016 can be typed:
Just complete the rest of the procedure and you are good to go.
The only major catch with most of the deals is the time-limited nature of the Groupon discounts. Once a deal is announced, it will only remain online for 24 to 72 hours, after which the discount will no longer be available for purchase. The coupons themselves are valid for commonly 6 to 12 months after you purchase them, so there’s no rush to redeem the coupon the same day. Like any form of sales, the provider wants to make it urgent for the customer to purchase, so when you see a Groupon deal that interests you, definitely jump on it within the next two days.
There is some negative criticism which exists against Groupon; we feel that Groupon has a lot to offer to both consumers and businesses alike. 82% of the businesses which have used their services have gone in profit or at least achieved break-even of their expenses. The customers are the happiest party in all this business. If you’re a business who’s afraid of losing money from Groupon then you have nothing to fear, a little research and some careful planning will help in the growth of your business.
To make the long story short, we think that Groupon is one of the best things, if not the very best, which has happened to the online consumer market in a very long time. We hope you have a happy time shopping from Groupon.
