The group handles always popping up in my life. My mother gives me prints Groupon deals for Christmas every year definitely (He puts coupons in boxes and wrapping them). And when I'm not opening the Groupons from "Santa" I see a group of processes common to scenes from my Facebook feed, or delivered to your mailbox with your friends, family and well, people hardly know about.
I am going to Paris on vacation this week. So bowed to social pressure and the checkout page Groupon Paris and see if the Boulangerie shops or reduced city tours found. I ran into a thing for half the price of cruise the Canal Saint-Martin.
This Groupon offered a scenic canals, which normally would have cost 18 euros, only 9 euros per person. But there was one problem: Groupon published in French. I am desperately combed this page to a mini-American or the British flag, and found nothing. The solution I found was to copy and paste all the text in Google Translate. Or learn how to speak fluent French.
Now, this was when things got difficult. Booking process was the same in French. And just where I had to write the address is given the opportunity to determine the ground.
I tried to write to my U.S. address and credit card details, but my order was rejected, I assume that this happened because of the system, by default, it is considered that I live in France. I took another stab at cost, but they are paid using PayPal instead of credit cards. It worked, probably because PayPal has been my home address in the system. I paid $ 25.29 for two tickets for a cruise, this was the last price that PayPal's exchange rate, which was slightly more expensive rate than the current bank rate seen XE.com ($ 24.55).
It is clear that the international Groupon pages are designed for local customers. Still have a PayPal account and a little translation, it is possible to grab great discounts on remote sites. The same applies to the Living Social, which, like Groupon, a wide range of international tenders, to be published in local languages. Since these sites are often promoted by restaurants, tours, transportation, and other goodies that would be useful during the trip, it should be signed to receive e-mail addresses for the local target for the next visit. (The other group deals with sites including BuyWithMe, dealfind and DealOn, offer lots of bargains across the United States, but has limited international reach.)
