I have. I actually purchased a 3 day stay in San Diego..........I was going anyway...and the Groupon was for Hotel and excursion, and was cheaper than what I could have purchased or reserved online. Worked out well. However, others I have tried had "use by" or "blackout" dates that were not convenient.

I never have and probably never will, ABC did a story on them turns out you can do just as good by yourself. Also the accommodations were sub par of what was advertised.

never used Groupon, but someone posted this on Facebook today. Not sure if it is what you are looking for

My SIL does things with them all the time including hotel stays, she's never had an issue that I've heard of. She's even given them to us as gifts and we've had no problems but never a hotel room yet.

I have called the company (the company represented in the groupon) directly and negotiated the price on a different time frame. That's how I went to Alaska fishing this summer. It was a great trip, and they were good hosts. I would do it again.
