Groupon is so Punk Rock
 
Groupon-like "daily deal" sites are all the rage right now, and a punk-rock themed one has popped up. Check it out for daily discounts on a bunch of punk-rock like items.

How did you find this site, whoever submitted it? This was the first posting in the sites history lol... doesn't seem ridiculously legit but I guess its cool?

Alex DiVincenzo 12/02/11 11:35 AM

That's pretty cool.

Uggh. Another site I know I'll be checking daily, haha.

AP probably got a press release from the company that's running the site. Would be a pretty shitty co. if they didn't announce their existence to potential customers.

Haha, yeah - they sent me a PR this morning. Right after I read this article about Groupon. Weird timing.

Yeah I read that earlier this week. I'm not surprised it's come down since the IPO but I'm certainly surprised it's come down that much.

This though http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/...7B106920111202 ... I guess I to play Farmville or something to understand. Nine billion is a whole lot.

All these daily deals sites suck. Yes, it can be a good deal for the consumer. It kills businesses though. Groupon is going to fail extremely quick. They owe business owners millions & millions of dollars they don't have. Feel sorry for all the fools who bought stock or businesses that fell for Groupon's scam.

I was reading this article about how sites like Groupon are basically a fancy Ponzi scheme, it's actually kind of sad that they're cheating businesses out of money. I use Scoutmob more often, which doesn't make you pay anything to use the deals, which I find cool.
