I bought one for myself and tried to buy another for a gift--wouldn't let me do this at the same time, and when I tried again (after purchasing my own) I got a message saying "there was a problem with your order, please submit again" which I did, still didn't work. How do I purchase one as a gift???

You can find and print your Groupons by logging into your account at www.groupon.com. Once you are signed in, place your cursor over your name at the top right of the screen and click "My Groupons" in the drop-down menu that appears.

After you’ve reached that page, click “View Voucher” to open your Groupon in a new tab. To print, just click "Print Voucher".
