    Very true. Their customer service is not very good.

    I really enjoyed reading this article. I can't believe how many deal sites are popping up now (#4 in the article). I've been contacted by at least a half dozen Groupon-like sites in the past 2 months wanting me to do a deal like I did with Groupon. As most of you know, I haven't had the best results with Groupon, so I've passed on all offers.

    Groupon must have protested - they seem to have changed the title of the article to > "10 Things Daily Deal Sites Won't Say"
