I bought a $25.00 / $75.00 Groupon for a wall decal as shown on http://groupon.com/deals/wall-spirit-december-hartford.  The ad shows a LARGE tree.  Only AFTER you pay the $25 for the Groupon, and try to place an order, are you directed to the website where you find out that the ad picture is deceptive.  For $75.00 you actually get a 2 foot by 3 foot plastic decal (actually $79.95) AND they charge $9.00 to mail it in about a week.  So for $25.00 + $5.95 additional + $9.00 shipping = ($40.00), I would get a 2 foot by 3 foot plastic decal NOT something that would take up an entire wall as pictured.  This is nowhere near the ad picture and nowhere worth $75.00.  It is absolutely a RIP OFF!!!!  They got me for the $25.00.  Lesson learned.

There is The Fine Print that states Expires Jul 3, 2013  Limit 1 per person, may buy 3 additional as gifts. Limit 1 per order. Online only. Must use promotional value in 1 visit. Shipping not included. Not valid toward shipping.  I guess I missed something. 

I sent an email to Groupon and the response I received was Although the Groupon does cover some purchases in their entirety, you would be responsible for any amount above the offer or noted in the fine print.

You sure did miss something..in fact..

AUTHOR: Robert - ()

You missed a lot of somethings.

No where in the Groupon Deal does it say you get that decal.   It says you can choose from many different styles.  It even lists a couple of items and their prices in addition to posting a link to the web site so you can check the prices BEFORE you purchase the Groupon. 

In fact even in the fine print you copied it states that shipping is NOT included.

I am actually surprised you aren't complaining that you don't get the chairs and the plant..after all they are in the picture as well.
