I decided to pick up FTD’s $40 for $20 groupon this morning as it looks like a good deal however as I found out quickly this deal is definitely NOT worth it. I had previously looked for flowers on FTD’s site and knew I wanted to get the Simply Cheerful Mix for $19.99 + another arrangement to get my order total to $40. After receiving my groupon certificate for FTD, I followed the directions and went to http://www.ftd.com/groupon only to find that the same arrangement that was $19.99 through DealCatcher was now jacked up to $39.99 via the Groupon landing page. Long story short I realize that groupon certificates don’t normally stack with other offers but it seems extremely shady and definitely goes under the BAIT & SWITCH column in my book! I think I’ll stick to 18F or Proflowers offers at this point.
On another note, Groupon gladly refunded my order and even mentioned that they had already fielded a number of other complaints for this offer.
