I would advice everyone not to use Groupon. They are the biggest scam. I had bought 6 Skin-Smoothing Sessions of Microdermabrasion for £42 at Essential Beauty from Groupon in feb 2010. When I went to the salon, it was so stinky and humid. And it was just a normal facial not Microdemabrastion. They said its for half an hour but it lasted only 20 minuts. On my second session I was running late by few minuts because london trains had some issue. I rang the salon to inform that. The receptionist was so rude, she cancelled my appointment and said i lost one session. She was talking so rudely over the phone.
So I asked her to get Mnagaer to ring me. But he was even mode ruder than the receptionist. Instead of helping me out he cancelled all my sessions. I wasnt very happy with the salon and its service, so I rang Groupon customer service for refund. The customer service representative said I cant have refund but he would give me vouchers which would be valid for 6 months. I told him I dodnt want to use Groupon again. He said he wont give me money at all. Finaly I agreed to vouchers but wasnt sure if I would buy anything in next 6 months.
The representative said if I dont buy anything they would extend my vouchers for another 6 months but I wont lose money. I was out of london for december and january. When I came back and checked my Groupon I found out my voucher has expired and they have taken my money.
So I rang Groupon again to give me another vouchers or my money back. Customer service refused to do anything. I spoke to Customer service manager but she put the phone down on me. I rang seeral times but the represetative and manager both put down the phone on me several times and saidI wouldnt get my money back. I rang agin to ask there name as I wanted to complaint to Headoffice or Director of the compant but they refused to give me thier names and again put the phone down on me.
I have never come across any company who would provide such kind of customer service. The email adress they have put on their website for complaints doesnt exist anymore. I would appreciate if anyone can get me Direcor or Company secretary contact no. At the end I would suggest everyone not to waste your time and money on Groupon.
