Groupon breaks the whole Teh Interwebz.
The web coupon site Groupon has always offered coupons for local businesses. If enough people signed up for spa treatments in, say, Chicago, then the whole group gets a discount. Now they’ve gone national with an offer at The Gap that was so popular the site crashed.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
