Groupon Plus offers a completely paperless, voucherless option for saving at restaurants and other participating merchants. It allows customers to enroll with a debit or credit card and then use that card to access deals offering up to 30% cash back on their credit card statements. They don’t have to print anything out or show their phone to redeem the deals, making it a hassle-free experience for both customer and merchant alike.
Enrolling in the program is free, and there are more than 1,500 participating restaurants in 23 markets across the United States. There are no blackout dates for redeeming the offers, and the cash back will be credited to the credit card or debit card statement automatically every time a customer visits a participating restaurant and uses their enrolled card.
The question of dating and discounts
Some folks might be reluctant to use a Groupon or other type of discount on a date, but a Groupon survey on dating habits showed that they are in the minority: 80% of those surveyed said they would have no problem using a Groupon on a date. Of those who said they wouldn’t use one, nearly half said they would if they could do it discreetly. Groupon Plus allows people to get cash back without anyone ever knowing they are using a discount offer; they simply pay with their eligible card, and the cash back is added to their statement.
This means there is no awkward moment when paying for the meal, and no one will be the wiser about the discount – except the person paying.
Program will expand nationally after initial run in limited markets
Currently, the Groupon Plus program is being piloted in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Washington DC, San Jose, Atlanta, Houston, Seattle, Phoenix, Tampa, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, San Diego, Las Vegas, Austin, Newark New Jersey, Long Island New York, and Orange County California. Groupon plans to expand the program throughout the US later this year and into 2018.
