I have always heard that Groupon is the greatest when it comes to refunds. If you come up with a reason, they credit your account. The end. No questions asked. That’s it.
I decided to try to get out of my recent purchase of bootcamp classes, writing the Groupon support people the following email:
I purchased the bootcamp deal a few months ago, and I got around to checking things out today.
Although I live firmly in the bible belt, I’m one of those heathens who get pretty squicked out by companies that have things to do with Jesus.
Is there any way to get a refund on this one Groupon since all of their workouts are held at churches?
Pretty please? I promise to continue to patronize the good heathen Groupon activities like drinking for 50% off, participating in sports with members of the opposite sex, and getting my crotch lasered at super-low prices.
Shortly thereafter, I received an email saying that email made her day, and she added a super-awesome video and refunded my money.
Keep kicking ass, Groupon!
