Is Groupon a scam?

With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

From what I gather from reading online opinions, paypal sellers have minimal protection compared to buyers, is this in any way true?

Groupon is ok lah, I bought vouchers for restaurants and kayaking before and they are all usable. deal.com.sg is also safe, even got a refund from it before.

They are okay. But I think that their deals are not as attractive anymore.

Agree. Recent ly bought something, few days later, the same thing retailing at a cheaper price on another site. This is second time for us. So disappointed.

Yeah. Only selected services are worth the purchase. like mani+pedi .
The travel deal is more worth it when i book it myself using agoda , cheaptickets.

I bought meal vouchers from Groupon before. No fuss at all. :boogie:

Today chanced upon the adhesive bra. This item always sold out, dunno why. I checked a couple of retailers and seems that this type is generally pricey. They didn't exactly have one in my size but I just try see how. :lol:
