GROUPON INC. Class Action Settlement

Screen shot 2013-12-05 at 10.16.17 AMAs you may remember from my previous post, Groupon is a website, where you can buy coupons with a pretty sweet promotional value, like $50 meals for $25, and so on. There has been a class action lawsuit filed against Groupon. Normally, I am pretty sceptical to such settlements, because the main reason behind them is to skim you out of your personal and banking info; however, this one seems to be legit [not available anymore, past the deadline]. 

Groupon has agreed to pay up to $300,000 (CDN) to settle the claims of the Class Members (the “settlement fund”) where it is not possible for them to redeem their expired Daily Deal vouchers, or who only redeemed part of the purchase price of the Daily Deal vouchers (“partial redemption”) and are not able to redeem their Daily Deal vouchers for the difference between the amount redeemed and the purchase price.
