Long story short, this Groupon deal was a complete scam and I am looking for a refund, and I do not want anyone else to have to experience what I went through. I am happy to discuss my experience and can be reached at 707-616-4514.
Long story: I'm not sure what Groupon's refund/credit policy is, because I've only had positive experiences and have been purchasing Groupons for years. But with this experience, I'm not even sure where to begin. I have used palm readers and tarot card readers before, and I am not looking for some life altering experience or anything like that. I am reporting this merchant though as a complete scam. I made my appointment for my psychic and tarot card reading, and mentioned on the phone I had a Groupon. She said great, I'll see you tomorrow at 6. I showed up about 10 minutes early for my appointment, and she said that wasn't a problem. I gave her my printed off Groupon, and she refused to accept it! She said she could not accept a printed copy, and that she would only give me a reading if I could show her on my phone that the Groupon was marked redeemed. Well, I couldn’t get service and she wouldn’t accept my paper printout, so she said I had to pay cash. I told her I already paid for the Groupon, and would have to use that. Well, I could not get service in her building, so I had to go outside, download the app, click redeemed, and bring it back upstairs to her. If I hadn’t had a smartphone, I couldn’t have used the Groupon- even though she mentioned none of this on the phone. Then for the actual “reading.” It only lasted 12 minutes. She put out a few tarot cards, said some very general things “how old are you?” “30.” “You tarot cards say you’re interested in marriage and babies.” “Okay, well I’m not…” “Really? Well, your eggs are dying so you should be. Didn’t you say you’re 30?”. She told me my “chakras were out of balance” and to restore them I would need to pay her $300. When the session ended after 12 minutes, I asked her about the psychic portion of the reading, and she said it came with the cards. I never got a “psychic” reading, and the tarot cards were a joke. I asked her if they said anything about my future, and she said that would cost me extra?? So then I asked her, if this 12-minute session was worth $100, as had been advertised by Groupon. She said no! She said I got the “Groupon version”, which is not worth $100, and that to get the full psychic/tarot reading I would have had to pay her directly, not purchase it through Groupon. So even though the Groupon value was set at $100, she ADMITTED that she was not providing me a $100 session. She also had the TV blaring the whole time, and was reading off of her phone the entire session. She was on her phone and watching TV while doing my reading! What a joke. I left feeling utterly disappointed and scammed out of my $24. The only reason I purchased this Groupon is because I thought I was getting the advertised $100 value session, which would include a psychic reading, not just a few tarot cards with nothing about my future. She spent the whole 12 minutes trying to sell me stuff (chakra balance, know my future, books, crystals.) SCAM!!!
