    First day trading valuation will reach 60-70B and i might be underestimating.

    Those who get the IPO at the offering price will make money - not so sure about the rest of us, though.

    Ohh I will make money as well but on the short side. I would not short it right away because the exuberance will be trough the roof but GRPN will shoot trough the roof so I can carefully short it but with extremely tight stops.

    I signed up for groupon's email for a couple of months. I certainly can't speak for all consumers but the deals offered were disappointing to me. Lots of 20% off spa and massage and that sort of thing. Mainly, fu-fu stuff. Not my bag of chips. I gave it time enough but never saw anything I wanted.
