Q:

The deal says I can buy one for myself and one as a gift, but I want to buy two as gifts for my college age son and daughter. Will one of them have to sign in using my email address and password, or is there a way for me to give both as gifts?

Judy D.  asked on  Oct 6, 2012

A:

Hi Judy! Yes, you are welcome to purchase them both as gifts. In order to make redemption as simple as possible, neither the purchaser or gift recipient name is displayed on the printed Groupon. This allows Groupons to be easily gifted to friends or family. Each child can have their own voucher.

A:

Per the business' FAQ:
You can watch and review the videos as many times as you like while you are a paying member. The videos can be streamed on-demand wherever you have an internet connection. The videos are not downloadable due to copy protection and piracy issues.

This is related to Rosemary's question. If this was bought as a Christmas gift and the recipient registered by 1/2/2013, would the recipient then have 12 months from that date to complete the course or 12 months from the date I buy the Groupon (today)?

Hi Webster, the recipient would have 12 months from the date of activation, not the date of purchase.
