Do you have a Snap by Groupon Account? You’ll want to take note of this. Starting on March 1, 2016, Snap expanded to include Groupon’s inventory of nearly 70,000 digital offers. With this update, Snap will be transitioning from product-specific to retailer-specific promotions. Instead of 50 cents cash back from buying a particular brand of cereal, the app will feature digital offers from stores instead, including Best Buy, Express, Macy’s, Target and Walmart etc.
If you had a Snap balance and did not request a check the equivalent amount in promotional Groupon Bucks has been deposited to your account. As an added bonus, they have also given you an bonus discount of $5 off your next Groupon purchase! For example, If you have $7.75 in a Snap balance Groupon would have given you $7.75 in Groupon Bucks AND a $5 discount on your next Groupon purchase.
How to get the $5.00 credit: If you’re an existing Groupon user, Groupon has already automatically deposited the Groupon Bucks into your existing account. If you’re not a current Groupon user, they used the email address file with Snap to create a Groupon account for you. You can use your Snap email and password to access your new Groupon account, just head on over here to Groupon and log in with the same account information you used on your Snap account.
I had a Snap account that I had never used and sure enough, I had $5.00 to use on my Groupon purchase today. Your Groupon Bucks and $5 discount will expire on Sept. 1, 2016, so spend them soon! Note that the Snap credit will not apply to the Fandango Movie Ticket offer.
