Nothing fancy, but has its perks
- Posted by GirlGoneGeek August 13, 2010
Groupon launched their first Android app this month, and as a Groupon email subscriber I was anxious to see what it would offer me beyond the daily emails I already receive. Additional offers? Sneak peeks at coming deals?
In a word, no. It’s the exact same coupon you’ll see in the emails. But there are a few perks to using the app. When you sign in, you can track which Groupons you’ve already bought and when they expire. For those who purchase often this might be a handy feature. In addition, you can just access your purchased Groupon through the app and then just show it on the phone at the store/restaurant/whatever to get your discount, instead of printing and having to remember to bring along a paper coupon.
Nice touch – and it saves a few trees too.
