Not Your Mother’s Mother’s Day

Groupon honors what makes Mom extraordinary by featuring talented Groupon Mothers and a dedicated collection of gifts

This Mother’s Day Groupon is finding surprise and delight in an obvious place: Groupon’s Moms. The Mother’s Day Gifting collection celebrates the things that make all moms exceptional with a collection of deals that reflect the interests and talents of real Groupon Moms. We’ve filled the collection with experiences and gifts designed to inspire mothers to live the things that make them special or rediscover their passions.

We’re also running a contest to ‘Mominate’ a mother for a chance to win a one-year supply of “Me Time.” People can mominate their own mom, significant other, a friend or even themselves. Just share a pic of your favorite mom and complete a fill-in-the-blank eCard. The grand-prize winner and the mominee will each receive a one-year supply of “Me Time” valued at $1,500 in Groupon Bucks. Two additional entrants—picked randomly—will each receive a one-time prize of $500 in Groupon Bucks.
