    Groupon has been adapting very well under the leadership of Lefkovsky, meanwhile Mason is exploring less mundane things in life (good for him!)... new initiatives to retain customers via elite program are bringing together a host of capabilities for this leader in the discounts field. Goodwill and advertisements of late have been removing some of the shadows from last week.

     

    I'd like to see more in this direction, for example, what about a dozen Green Cars sponsored by Groupon and let out to commuters as shared rides (like Car2Go or Modo) - emblazon a spiffy Groupon logo in a green jacket with a low-emissions hybrid and there's more advertisements outside of the screened universe. How much more attention would be directed to the brand and its products, including the paypal-like shift to mobile wallets? OY VAY TARGET 50
