Kate R.  asked on  Jun 3, 2012

Thanks for your question, Kate! This is a unique experience created just for Groupon that does not have an original value for us to discount.

Q:

Is it possible to pay a premium to have the tuck in service done in Urbana?

Rami T.  asked on  Jun 3, 2012

A:

I'm sorry, but the this service is only available if you are within the 5-mile limit. This is due to the amount of tuck-ins that Ben must provide each night.

Q:

How is Ben going to lock the door for my security after him and his legally required entourage exit the house?

Jeff F.  asked on  Jun 5, 2012

A:

We'll work out the exit route upon redemption. If you have a roommate, they could let us out. If you don't, we'll lock up and slip the key under your door. If you have a self-locking door, we'll shut the door as we leave.

Q:

Hello Ben, how did you come up with this fantastic groupon in which all the spoils & possibilities go to you? Money, fame & perhaps making friends or good friends. I think your sense of humor is fantastic! No wonder you & partner are doing so well @ Groupon. I have a 2 story home is there a surcharge? Sometimes I think I'm going to go to sleep but find that I'm not quite ready & have to pull out the computer, how would we time for that? Would Ben sit with me in bed & look @ the things I do on the computer? It's usually group, rue, cards or e-mail. I would take suggestions from Ben? I could also have the tv on for his viewing pleasure. Audrey

A. M.  asked on  Jun 6, 2012

A:

No surcharge. Please be ready to go to sleep when Ben arrives—he has many other tuck-ins to perform, and we wouldn't want to keep those sleepyheads waiting!

Q:

Ok, is Ben hiring I will give up my illustrious career as an educator to join this profitable business adventure. Plus, I have access to cliental that he may not be able to "cover" pun intended.

Tiffany S.  asked on  Jun 5, 2012

A:

Ben works alone so no one will slow him down.

George  from  Groupon  replied on  Jun 6, 2012

Q:

My friend says that Ben is a liar (she did call him a liar but the implications were very apparent), stating that he will not actually tuck anyone in but rather just pocket the $100 voucher May you please address her concerns regarding Ben; thank you.

Martin P.  asked on  Jun 5, 2012

A:

That's simply not true. Ben doesn't tuck people in for the money, he tucks them in for the everlasting friendship.

George  from  Groupon  replied on  Jun 6, 2012

Q:

How can I trust that Ben will let himself out and lock up without steeling my prized jewels? Does he have a clean record?

Jason V.  asked on  Jun 5, 2012

A:

Ben has never been rightfully convicted of any crimes. Also, the only sparkle he needs comes from his perfectly round eyes.

Q:

Why does the website link go to another groupon? That seems suspicious! Does this guy even have a website?

Minoli P.  asked on  Jun 5, 2012

A:

Ben's webmaster is still putting the finishing touches on his site. It should be done by late 2014.

What health or safety reasons may disqualify an individual from receiving Mr. Kobold's services?

Wendy F.  asked on  Jun 5, 2012

Q:

I notice Ben is wearing latex gloves in the photo, what if I'm allergic? Also, Latex might make people feel like a science project....

Mary A.  asked on  Jun 5, 2012

A:

The latex gloves were worn at the request of the tuckee in the photo. Ben normally wears elbow-length satin gloves.
