Do we have any Groupon.com users who can assist me?
« on: August 02, 2017, 08:58:08 am »
Greetings,  This may be one for PBJ but any other bargain hunter will do :)

I live in the UK but visit the US once or twice a year.  Being a bit of a cheapskate I've always used Groupon deals when I am visiting.  Well I have another trip planned shortly and went onto groupon to get some deals.  Imagine my suprise when I tried to get something only to be told that I have no card on record,  OK add card again,  Nope no joy. Seemingly Groupon have stopped recognising payments from cards registered outside of the US/Canada.  I tried Applepay only to have that fail so lastly I tried to buy a groupon gift card using my Paypal account and got the following message.

"We're sorry. This merchant only accepts payments from PayPal accounts registered in the United States"

So basically I can't buy anything from Groupon.com anymore  :badmood: :badmood: :badmood:

This means that I need someone in the US/Canada to deal with Groupon on my behalf.  I would be willing to pay monies into a users paypal account and who in return would be so kind as to buy a groupon gift card for me.

I am more than happy to pay $10 for someones time in doing this for me. 

PM Me if you can assist.

Thanks.

Will it take a visa gift card as payment? You can buy those at Walmart and many other places. They work like a credit card. They cost less than the ten dollars you are offering.

I honestly don't know it does say it excludes certain prepaid cards.  I'm not even sure I can actually get away with the gift card idea either as I see at the bottom when gifting it says must be US Residence  :dunno :dunno   :censored: :banghead:

You can definitely use prepaid Visa/MC with PayPal.

I know that but unless I can create a paypal account using a hotel/other address in the US that won't actually help at all.  If you have to register a prepaid card to a US Address before use it is also no point.  Groupon are insisting that the account for payment be held in the US and I don't have that ability.

And my thanks go to PBJ who has ensured that The wife and I will not go hungry on our upcoming trip.  (In no way is that any kind of euphemism or double-entendre).
