Groupon redesign on the way

A little over six months ago, Groupon launched as a side project of [The Point](http://www.thepoint.com). In that short time, we’ve expanded to five cities, sold over 50,000 Groupons, and saved consumers over $3,000,000!

Since it’s based off of The Point’s collective buying platform, we were able to build and launch Groupon very quickly by embedding The Point campaign widgets in a simple WordPress blog. Most of the development we’ve done since then has been behind the scenes, but we’re just about ready to release our biggest upgrade yet: a full redesign of Groupon.

There are lots of little details in the new design that should make your time on Groupon even nicer. Also, this sets the stage for some exciting features we’re have lined up for later this year.

We hope you like the redesign when we release it in a few weeks. Please [email us your thoughts](mailto:groupon@thepoint.com) — we’d also love to hear what features you’d like to see on Groupon!
