How Do I Redeem on Groupon?

by Christa Titus

Groupon (whose name combines the words "group" and "coupon") is a service that works in conjunction with local businesses to offer sizable discounts to consumers. The deals are advertised to potential customers through a daily email. After customers purchase a voucher online, they have to redeem it with the local merchant who offered it so they can get a discount on a particular service or product.

Print the Groupon voucher from your computer or store it in an email on a mobile device, such as a smartphone.

Visit the merchant who offered the Groupon voucher.

Order the item or service that is affiliated with the voucher's discount.

Present the voucher -- either in printed form or in your mobile device -- to the cashier to be redeemed.
