I had a question about the radiation of these types of internet coupon companies. I found this page concerning 'Living Social' that discusses some of its problems. http://www.deepgreencrystals.com/archives/2011/01/living-social-h.html
One problem discussed had to do with scaling, a problem I with which I am quite familiar (boy, is it hard to not end sentences with prepositions, almost as hard as ending dates without propositions).
One inconvenience related to the difficulties in business experienced by this company was that they finally sent me a reply notice this morning (1/2 day later and they will finally send instructions (not the card, itself) tomorrow. If the company is trying to become large enough to go public, they'll have to whittle their time-line.
It isn't as if the idea of business coupons is a new one. The point of doing something like this, in my mind, is to bring something new to the product. Their packaging seems pretty enough with font sizes that are large enough for a cataract eye to read clearly but at least for me, I'd rather just have the card, on hand. Or do I, perhaps I'm just driven impatient by the fact the deal was done on line and therefore should be quick. In fact, all they've done is slow down my expectations in a non-harmful way. At least they can have a future goal to meet, such as a quicker response time.
I'm glad I helped you get a free card! You deserve a good read after dealing with the land.Edited at 2011-01-20 03:55 pm (UTC)
