What is GrMail?
With GrMail, Groupon aims to simultaneously become the world’s primary email provider and to also make emails fun by removing all the boring, personal details that usually weigh them down.
How Does it Work?
After signing up for a GrMail account, type your email to a friend, family member, or even a loved one into GrMail’s "email box." Next, click "iDEALize" to populate your email with links to great Groupon offers. With your email now “iDEALized,” you’re ready to click "Send" and give the recipient a fun and rewarding email to read for probably the first time in his or her life.
Subject: An Update
I hope this note finds you well. I’m nervous for my upcoming surgery, but I think that after it’s done I’ll finally be able to breathe a sigh of relief.
My best to you, Deborah, and the three kids,
Subject: 50% Off Romantic Italian Dinner
I hope this note finds you in the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel. I’m excited for my upcoming laser hair removal, but I think that after it’s done I’ll finally be able to visit Flamingo Waterpark Resort.
My best to you, Deborah, and the three Dog Coats,
Does GrMail read my emails?
Absolutely not. We’ve programmed a series of algorithms to recognize proper nouns as well as emotionally charged words such as "love," "dental surgery," or "baby’s first steps." The results are emails with links to deals seamlessly integrated into the sentences.
I don’t believe you.
Test it out for yourself! Just register an account name below, type in a recipient, add a subject line, write an email, and then click "iDEALize" to add links to deals to your original text. You’ll love your new "iDEALized" GrMail, and so will the people you send it to!
What if my original email is already full of links to Groupon deals?
What happens when I “iDEALize” it?
You’d think something exciting would happen, but no. We just replace it with other, equally good links.
