During the holidays, many retailers offer promotions designed to cynically cash in on holiday imagery. At Groupon, we believe that the holidays – not spending money – are most important. That’s why instead of a holiday promotion, Groupon offers customers an entire holiday: Grouponicus.
Celebrating Grouponicus is simple! Followers purchase Groupons as gifts – giving their loved ones meals at restaurants, dazzling beauty treatments, helicopter rides, and more, all at 50-90% off. Customers can subscribe to receive Grouponicus emails, or buy directly from the Grouponicus gift store. Deals last 3-5 days, but Grouponicus lasts for five whole weeks online, and all year long in our hearts. Embracing Grouponicus is the adventurous alternative to holiday gifting, and like all good holidays, Grouponicus comes with a fun set of age-old traditions and rigid cosmological beliefs.
Kids will love our focus group-approved corporate holiday mascot, Groupo™, the Bargain Bird™, the half-man/half-bird/half-snake who comes in the night to leave Groupons for his believers. And don’t forget to leave a lit candle in your shoe overnight in compliance with the Grouponicus scripture, “The Doctrine of Completion.” The entire Groupon staff was gladly forced to celebrate Grouponicus, which also forbids its followers from owning dogs and requires them to throw a list of their mistakes into a backyard Regret Hole.
Unlike other corporate holiday promotions, Grouponicus offers its followers great savings on experiential gifts and renders other wintertime holidays and their boring, expensive gifts obsolete!
The Grouponicus Store kicked off with a $5 download of Rihanna’s fifth studio album, “LOUD” and is open for business through December 26, 2010. Click here for more information. Not in one of our 20 Grouponicus cities? Find deals good for giving, regardless of your location, by clicking here.
