Q:

I purchased two orders of $40 for $100 worth of lanterns for a total of 40 lanterns. I went to the website www.skylantern,com, created an account ordeered one set of lanterns and entered the redemption code...The site says" Sorry, we didn't recognize that promotional code or it may have expired." I started over, same result. I tried the promotional code from my second order, Same result. I want the lanterns, followed the instructions exactly...nothing. Can I call in and have this handled by Groupon with my information? This last hour of trying complete a simple transaction makes me want to throw the computer across the room. Thanks

Q:

I live in MI so can I buy the Groupon and use it to buy the lanterns when I am in that area in March?? Do you have a store located in Lansing where I can shop with the Groupon??

Susan G.  asked on  Jan 27, 2013

A:

Yes you can pick them up at one of our retail locations. But it must be owned by us not a retailer of our products.

Q:

Do you ship lanterns to Hawaii? For $10? I just bought a groupon for your sky lanterns. When I went to your website I could not redeem my groupon because there weren't any items to add to my cart. When will I be able to select my lanterns on your website?

Aimee I.  asked on  Jan 26, 2013

A:

Sorry the shipping would be higher. We can still ship but you will need to call us directly 866-514-6225 and we will quote the shipping.

Q:

There have been many bans on Sky Lanterns across the US and in the UK. Fire safety i.e. lanterns being cought on tree branches, air safety i.e. close to civil aviation airports as the lanterns can soar over 1,500 feet or to put it into perspective 300 feet higher than the roof of the Empire State Building. My question is why are these exempt from the bans and if they are what makes them less dangerous? I've been a very happy Grouponer so not a sour grape question, just a very concerned question for Groupon and the members or at a minimum me. Thank you for a concerned and researched response.

A:

There have been very few bans on them across the US. Because there is no proof that they cause fires. The link attached is from Grand Rapids where a artist lit off close to 20,000 of them and not one fire. http://www.wzzm13.com/news/article/226992/14/ArtPrize-artist-launches-lanterns-in-downtown-Grand-Rapids

Q:

I would like to purchase 4 of the $100 Groupons (80 lanterns). Will shipping still be a flat $10 if I redeem all 4 at one time?

Page B.  asked on  Jan 25, 2013

A:

I believe you can only redeem one at a time. Please call in once purchasing and we will charge you exact shipping for the order. Will probably be around 20.00 total.

Q:

I just ordered 20 for my wedding and I wanted to know if we can have our guests write best wishes on the laterns before we set them off. We were going to use regular sharpies, will that effect the laterns at all?

Kimberly  asked on  Jan 26, 2013

A:

No, this will not affect the lanterns.
