I was not impressed. I got a pair of earphones (buds) from one $5 try and a shower curtain from another one. Sure, this was a raffle and I understand I had a slim chance of getting televisions and such, but a shower curtain?
Honestly.. if Groupon partnered with someone and did this as a fund raiser, that would be different. Would absolutely try it again. But otherwise I will spend my money on sure deals rather than slim chances.

This is not a product I would have chosen myself. That is not all together a bad thing. It gives me the opportunity to try something new. I'm just not sure why I'd use this product. It did give a mild cooling affect, but so would a simple alcohol wip

I am a 68 year old single male who has in the past never ordered clothing from groupon. I have ordered a lot of things (electronics, tickets, phone protectors, etc.). Groupon sent me size 1, Paulina Women's Stretch Jeans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First of all, I don't know anyone that is a size 1. Secondly, what is a male 68 year old bachelor going to do with female stretch jeans???? You would think that Groupon would have a profile of the things a person orders or at least would note that the person ordering is a man and not a woman. Also, sending anything size specific is really ridiculous unless you had a record of someone ordering that size in the past.
I was a little nervous diving into the depths of the unknown, but I figured hey what the heck might as well live a little! I got a set of flame-less candles that are definitely worth more than $5 (downside is batteries aren't included). The shipping speed was fine; however, the magical mystery gift givers did take a while to fulfill the order. On the bright side (as lit by the candles), it was a fun surprise when the box showed up at my door. So while my friends are saying they climbed Mt. Whitney, I can say I ventured into the darkness and came out enlightened! They don't need to know that means I ordered a mystery box and got candles :)
While I understood that it was a mystery gift, I wasn't prepared for they type of junk I received. Some of the items could have been purchased at my local Dollar Tree store. Although I knew it would be a long shot to get a big ticket Item, I didn't think I would get over 50% of items I didn't need and knew no one to give them to. I took a chance and purchased five mystery gifts. So, you can imagine my disappointment. There was slip saying I could return if I wasn't completely satisfied but when I when online, the message was that they were not refundable. The worst way to spend my $25!

My Mystery purchase experience wasn't terrible and it wasn't like it was a waste of money, but I guess I was just expecting a little more, or more like a little differenct. I purchased two and so thankful I did, because one of the items was good, it is an over-the-door shoe organizer - that was something I really needed and could use. However, if I had only purchased one mystery product and had received only the blemish remover, which was the other product, I would have been pretty upset and very disappointed. As it was, the shoe organizer kind of balanced out my feeling about it. That's why I put \"Neutral\" on the first question.
I ordered 3 of these mystery items. The first was a set of his/hers face massagers - they are ok and are what you'd expect for $5.00. My second item was a long memory foam bath mat in brown - I love this, it matches my bathroom and is comfortable to step on. My 3rd item was a small pet water fountain. It's made of ceramic and is quite pretty, perfect for a small dog or cat. My dog was a little freaked out by it at first, but now uses it all the time. Great value for $5.00, they cost anywhere from 56.00-86.00
I bought 5 of these which of foolish of me. I just hoped that maybe, JUST MAYBE, one or two of the stuff i received would be worth more than $5. Everything I received was junk, most of which I'm 99% sure I could find on the internet for less than $5. I got a stack of cheap plastic plates ($1..at the dollar store). A 2-pk of One Direction (the band) toothbrushes (most likely...a $1 at the dollar store). A cheap, pink storage organizer. A shower mat. And a brand-less cast-iron teapot.
The description said at least 25% off a product. I got one package of foot wipes and paid a total of $9.84 including tax and shipping. At the time I received my pack of wipes, I checked the site and found you were selling three packs for five or six dollars.
I feel very misled. Bait and switch. Don't charge $5 for one of something and call it a deal if you are selling two or three of the same thing for about the same $5.
The Goods Midsummer Mystery Deal was a lot of fun to participate in. Though the shipping took longer than anticipated (the status for a week or so was \"awaiting fulfillment\"), the package did arrive in a timely fashion once it was shipped. I ended up getting an item that I would never have purchased for myself, but will use it now that I have it. I would buy the Goods Midsummer Mystery Deal again.
