The Beginning Of The End Of Katherine Heigl's Career, Brought To You By Groupon

groupon-heigl.jpg

Did you know that Katherine Heigl has a new movie out? Yeah, neither did we! We saw ads up on buses and billboards and stuff, but to be honest, we thought they were old The Ugly Truth ads people forgot to take down.

Don't scoff! We don't think we're the only ones, after we just got this very telling email offer from Groupon. Seems the studio is pretty eager to get people to go see this movie and aren't too confident that Kat's star power alone can get the butts in the seats. So, if you're in the mood for some run-of-the-mill Heigl film fare, you can go see her new movie One For The Money and save a little at the same time!

That's right — over half-off the ticket price! Two for less than the price of one if you feel like punishing bring your boyfriend along! (How sad to see it come to this.)

Hey, do you think that's why she's been sniffing around to be invited back to Grey's Anatomy? Think she's finally seen the error of her ways? It's an important lesson for us all to learn: loyalty is KEY!

Have any of U seen the flick yet? Wait, is it even out in theaters? How much money has it made? Does anyone know anything about this picture????

Groupon Helps Feed America

Filed under: FoodCharity

Groupon charity feeding america

Groupon just wrapped up a wildly successful fundraiser for the national hunger organization Feeding America.

The online deal site offered consumers the chance to give $22 to the charity by only handing over $11 after Pepsi offered match every donation up to $250,000.

The campaign was hoping to receive a modest 200 donations, but thanks to the generosity of both Pepsi and everyday Americans, over 5,000 charity deals were purchased by the time it closed on Sunday evening!

That's a lot of food for a lot of families who will need it this Holiday season.

Although Groupon's deal is expired, it's not too late to give! Click here to donate money to Feeding America by November 25th and your contribution will be matched dollar for dollar by Ameriprise Financial!

Resale Sites Allow You To Sell Unwanted Deals

groupon-logo-profits.jpg

If you have ever had buyer’s remorse from shopping on sites like Groupon and LivingSocial, there’s now a solution.

New sites are popping up allowing you to re-sell your impulse purchases.

Sites like DealsGoRound.com, CoupRecoup.com, and LifeSta.com offer users to go online ad repost their unused deals.

It’s estimated that about 20% of the deals purchased online go unused, so why not get your money back and resell a package you no longer want or need?

The only downside we see is if the deal you purchased is non-transferable, so if it’s in your name, you might be stuck with it.

Otherwise, check out the sites above or the numerous new ones starting up and unload your unwanted deals!

Your Daily Deal With Groupon: Stock In The Company!

Filed under: Business Blitz

groupon-goes-public.jpg

Three years ago, Groupon came onto the scene with just the hint of promise. Today, the Chicago-based start-up has filed to go public and hopes plans to raise an estimated $750 million for their social buying site.

The site has seen a flourish in revenue since its inception. Shortly after launching in 2008, Groupon made $94 million in revenue. This year, it raked in $713 million. With the company flourishing and gaining huge buzz, investor interest has swelled. Thus, the films behind Groupon have decided to expand their horizons and hopefully, their profits as well.

Sounds like a solid plan to us! So as we keep getting massages and dental work for 50%, we're cool with whatever! LOLz!

Concert Lovers, Rejoice! GrouponLive Is Coming!

Filed under: MadonnaMusic MinuteTech TalkBusiness BlitzEvents

grouponlive service announced

Thanks to Groupon, we already get all types of great deals on restaurants and movies, but NOW they're about to become the place to go for concert tickets!

Groupon has joined forces with Live Nation to form GrouponLive, which will become a resource for concerts, sports events, theatre, and other live events.

As is always the case with Groupon, there will be limited-time discounts on events all throughout North America.

No specific word yet on when this will kick into full gear, but the site is currently up-and-running, and it looks like it should be 100% LIVE for Live Nation's summer concert series.

AND given the fact that Madonna's manager Guy Oseary was reportedly heavily involved in this deal, we wouldn't be surprised if we see some serious deals for Madge shows in the future!

Are U excited for GrouponLive? Do U think it will become as great a resource as Groupon?

Nobody Wants To See Homewrecking LeAnn Rimes Sing!

Filed under: Music MinuteZ ListLeann Rimes

We guess it doesn't pay to be a shameless homewrecker!

Now that what's left of LeAnn Rimes' career has fallen flat on its ass, she can't even sell out a small show in Phoenix on July 17th, and the venue is selling tickets for 50% off on the website Groupon!

Ha!

Who wants to place bets that they'll still have to hand out tickets for free?
