How do I play the Game?

It’s simple and fun! Just make sure you have both a Groupon account and a Facebook account. Here’s how it goes:

  1. When you go to the Clicky Game, click on the "Spin" button to log-in to your Facebook account.
  2. You may have to enter your Groupon email and password in another window – don’t worry, this just means your Facebook account and your Groupon account will be linked.
  3. Just click on the "Spin" button to Spin the wheel for a chance to get a discount on a select Groupon purchase!

How many Spins do I get?

Each day while the Game is offered, you will get one (1) regular Spin. If you don’t use the Spin that day, you will lose that Spin. The next day, you’ll be able to Spin again.

How can I earn more Spins?

During the Game Period you are eligible to earn an additional five (5) Spins when you "Like" the Game on Facebook. These are bonus Spins, and all five bonus Spins are awarded all at once. You may “Like” the Game as many times as you wish but you will receive only one set of bonus Spins.

If I Spin and land on a special discount, how can I apply it to a Groupon purchase?

When you Spin, you may land on a special discount. If this happens, hurray! We’ll display a select deal or set of select Groupon deals toward which you can choose to apply your discount. The prices you’ll see will reflect any special discount you obtained through playing the game.

How long are special discounts valid?

If you Spin and land on a special discount, you’ll need to apply it to a select deal within 24 hours. If you don’t, the special discount will automatically expire and you won’t have the opportunity to apply it.

How can I spin on behalf of a Facebook friend?

When you run out of your own Spins, you may be invited to spin on behalf of a Facebook friend. How does this work? When promoted, click the button that says "Spin for a friend" and choose a particular Facebook friend on whose behalf you'll Spin. Then just follow instructions to Spin the wheel. If it lands on a special discount, your friend is in luck!

If I spin for a friend and land on a special discount, how can my friend redeem the discount?

If you land on a special discount for a friend, a notification will appear on your friend's Facebook "wall" inviting him or her to redeem the discount within 24 hours of issuance. (Note that depending on your friend's Facebook settings, the notification may not appear; this is something Groupon has no control over.) Once they click the link, he or she will be able to apply the discount toward a select group of deals. To do so, they'll need to log in to a valid Groupon account (or create a new one if they don't yet have one) and ensure the account is connected with the same Facebook that received the Clicky notification.

How many times can I spin for friends?

You can spin on behalf of each friend once every 24 hours. So if you have upwards of 5,000 friends, you might want to start now...

Can I apply my special discount to any Groupon deal?

Not at this time. If you Spin and land on a special discount, you may apply it only to the deals displayed to you in the Game in conjunction with your play at that time. Special discounts are not eligible on any other Groupon deals.

Do I need to be a Groupon user to play?

Yes, you must have a Groupon account to play. Don’t have a Groupon account? Create one here for free.

↑ Top

Do I need to be a Facebook user to play?

Yes, you must have a Facebook account to play. To play, log-in to your Groupon account through Facebook and follow the instructions. Don't have a Facebook account? Create one here for free.

Can I combine the use of a Game special discount + Groupon Bucks I have in my account?

Yes. Let’s say you already have $10 in Groupon Bucks in your account. You Spin and land on a $5 special discount. You are offered a special Groupon deal priced at $25. In this case, you would be charged $10 to your credit card after applying the value of your Groupon Bucks and the Game's special discount.

↑ Top

Do I get money back if my special discount exceeds the price of a Groupon deal?

No; you’ll be able to apply your special discount up to the price of the deal itself. Let’s say you Spin and land on a $10 special discount but the deal you want to buy is priced at $5. In this case, you would effectively get the $5 deal for free -- but you wouldn’t get a credit for not applying the full value of the special discount.

↑ Top

If my purchase is refunded, do I get to keep the discount?

No; you'll only get refunded the amount you actually paid (whether via credit card, Groupon Bucks, or a combination of the two). The discount will then be forfeited. For example: If you paid $15 for a deal ($20 minus a $5 discount from Clicky), you'll receive $15 back as a refund.

↑ Top

Do I earn Groupon Bucks with this Game?

No, this Game does not award Groupon Bucks. Instead, by Spinning the wheel you can get an immediate special discount on select Groupon deals.

What's the story behind Clicky?

Wouldn't you like to know. Many believe Clicky took years (if not decades) to develop, in secret laboratories all across the world (as well as one rumored outpost on Mars). The reality, however, is quite different. Click here to check out Clicky's story, including a behind-the-scenes look at its creation.
