when she arrived, she found the restaurant was closed for good. cynthia says she asked groupon to refund both items but didn't get anywhere. so she turned to us for help. we contacted groupon and refunded cynthia $116 exactly what she paid for the two deals. groupon also gave her a $100 credit. in a statement groupon said we want our customers to have an amazing experience every time they use a groupon or we'll work with them to make it right. these pre-paid deals via third party can save you money but adding that middle man can also create problems. just ask cynthia. so before you buy in, make one call to the actual provider, just to be sure everything is in order. if you have a consumer complaint, call us 888-996-tips or visit
