Groupon received a nasty gram

I received a Groupon email today showing a Hot Air balloon ride.  I click on the ad thinking this might be something relaxing for DH and I to do.  At the bottom of the page there is this section called "Groupon says:  How to annouce your pregnancy"  It was a list of outrageous ways to make the annoucement.  I guess it was suppose to be funny.

Just recently I personalized my groupon account so I wouldn't get any baby related ads.  I listed my interests as being travel, spas, food.  that type of thing.  Why, oh why does this crap have to show up everywhere? 

I sent groupon an email and told them to use better judgement and filters next time.  Did anyone else see that today?  Maybe I"m just being oversensitive.

Re: Groupon received a nasty gram

  • I'm sorry that happened to you.  How frustrating, especially since you just changed your settings. Hope it doesn't happen again.

    How does hot air balloon ride = pregnancy announcement? I think of it as being more of a romantic thing - it has nothing to do with babies... What are they thinking?

    I guess they just lost a sale!
