Hi, I have been seeing this advertised a lot online. Has anyone here become a member for Groupon Sheffield? Is it worth joining? And how does it work?

It's ok if you want 'discounts' for expensive therapy places or hotels. No use to save a few bob at Quicksave.

Personally I love Groupon, mainly for the Hairdresser deals cos being a lady hairdressers are reyt expensive and I've had a couple of good deals (7 for a haircut at Saks in town for example) and there are often good deals in respect of eating out.

I think its worth joining.

Everyone who got the voucher got a good deal. Just because Groupon messed up, doesn't mean that everyone suffered.

The mini cupcakes are lovely, just enough and at it won't mean my favourite shop going bust.

I've had a couple of good deals from them - a big discount @ sunglasses shop, and some digital prints offers.

If you really believe the Fancie line of "we couldn't accept the offer as we'd go bust" then you're extremely naive.

They make an exceptional amount of profit on the cupcakes and trust me any business who is able to open a store in Meadowhall isn't short of cash!

I've had some good deals- facials, massages, hairdressing and meals. It's worth joining. Whats the problem with Fancies? I haven't been to redeem my voucher yet.

Groupon should refund the money if the offer isn't honoured.

I didn't - and neither did my friend. That's just two that I know of.

Im really annoyed how Fancies are passing the blame onto groupon when then got the contract with the customers wrong.
Groupon have done nothing wrong but have still offered great customer services by giving people their money back.
Fancies on the other hand have terrible customer service, have started using cheap ingredients and acted dishonourably throughout this debacle.

I recently started a Law course as part of my learning with Lifelong learning at Sheffield Uni, we covered (briefly) the case against kodak in 2002 who refused to honour their online sales, I would say they lost but they settled out of court which is as good as saying they would have lost in court and set a precedence. If youre interested why Fancies are so in the wrong then look it up.
