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.

Hi

There are many groupon offers on photobook, can someone advise whether they are reliable?

How is the print and paper quality?

Thanks.

groupon offers are all set by the seller. some of them really want to give bulk discount as they can reach more people = earn more. but check who is the seller, if it is a known shop you should be able to check their work quality...better work hard find out now better than get cheated..

I will only try to buy things below $40 , if quality no good. Treat it as lesson learnt n just unlucky. But so far my below $40 purchases were alright. Eg Casio watch for kids.

Xueyan, I did my last few photo book from photobook Singapore. Think printing done in Maia. So far ok . The hassle is I got to spend lots of time, doing photo collage, arrangement for the pages.

Groupon is not a scam but beware of what you buy.

I will not buy tour packages or airline tickets from them.

When you buy a cheap ticket and try to redeem from the tour agent, they always say your preferred date is not available and must top up.

Really crap.
