    Its crazy.

    Ive had people call me and say "Hey i saw your Groupon for 3 rooms for 119.00 and wanted to schedule that"....

    I know exactly what they are talking about but my blood boils over everytime i hear it and nicely reply "Well ive never run a Groupon deal, but you may be refering to my email coupon or one on angies list.."

    Then everytime they say "oh yea thats probably where i saw it"

    SMH

    Groupon has officially become "kleenex" and "google" where they are brand companies but are used as a descriptive word to describe all products in their field!

    Could you imagine if you could brand your specialized name in your community as a general term?

    Has me thinking...

    LOL. That's funny stuff!

    In my little market, it hasn't even become noticed by consumer or seller. Heck, val-pack doesn't even exist here anymore.
