Groupon Goods Scam

My wife sent me a link for a Groupon Goods Deal for an iPad Cover which was selling for $19 (actual value $100) that is 81% off. I had bought from Groupon Goods before and I knew Groupon Goods has one big competitor that is Amazon.com. So I quickly checked the price for same item on Amazon.com and found the same deal at a better price, cheaper than group goods. Looking at Groupong Good, who sold more than 5000 of these, I would have jumped on this deal myself

Notice that Groupon Goods has sold 5,000 of them in just a couple of days. Amazon could have never beat this ( I am assuming). If you knew there is better deal on Amazon and probably (most likely) quicker shipment + you get to view the revews, Amazon price is a lot better. Of course it is not touted as deal. It is just a regular price.

 

Moral of the Story: When buying a deal from Group goods,  check prices at Amazon.com first!
