    Above is the reply that I just received from Groupon. Took me a while to do this but I gave the deals I had already purchased away and wanted to make sure that people had time to redeem them first.

    I quit them a long time ago . Check out brads deals. As far as I know they aren't on either side which I am fine with. If you want to stand and watch the fight that's fine but if your gone enter the ring that's anther story.

    I stopped using them after that and deleted my account. You can still find deals online, in person, talking to a store manager, etc. They aren't needed, and even more so now that they are anti-rights.

    One positive that comes out of this is that they "heard why you quit". If enough people quit for a similar reason and make that known, they either "go under" or change.

    Yes, it is vitally important that they received the message and understand that their decision has resulted in your decision to take your money elsewhere.

    If we just stop using a business without telling them the reason they can only guess about the drop in profits. Make sure to tell them they've lost a customer and exactly why and you might be able to reverse their policy.

    I received some financial information not long ago that claimed Groupon was in trouble, as a company, for what it's worth.

    I was nice. No 4 letter profanity. Just gently told them to stick it in their ear

    I was never a customer but when I first heard of their policy change I made a mental note never to become one.

    Just tell them that due to their policy change you're dropping them in favor of Deal Chicken because they never treated us like criminals.

    It's there, down at the bottom. Sez unsubscribe and has a area to explain your self. Like I said earlier and I just got an answer.

    Basically the same as archigos got. I don't miss the trash and spam.

    Got the exact same letter. I wonder how many they have to send before they get it that they have P.O.'d a lot of people they didn't need to, and compare that number to the "enough" that supposedly "voiced concern" (and why does my BS detector go off on reading that oh-so-vague phrase?)
