Rating Details:


Groupon offers a pretty great referral program, at least on the participant’s side. They only provide the participant with an incentive. Another thing that dropped it’s rating down is that even though Groupon is largely used on mobile, you can only access the program from a web browser. We’re certain they used to promote their referral program on mobile, so maybe it’s just hidden?

How Groupon Drives Referrals
