Groupon Poupon

I was talking with a friend today who was frustrated after trying to use a Groupon right before it expired — and was treated poorly once the business knew he had a Groupon.

I’ve noticed this as well. We bought a weekend at a bed and breakfast near Atwood Lake, OH. Here’s how the phone call went when we called to set up a reservation:

“Hello, we’d like to see if there is any availability for the last weekend in October.”

“Do you have a Groupon?”

“Yes, in fact we do.”

“The only availability we have is Thanksgiving weekend.”

“We can’t come then. Do you have any other availability?”

“I’m sorry, I can’t talk right now. Can you call back? I’m making pancakes.”
