Short Expiration Dates

I am a recent member of Groupon.com . I got burned recently when one of my vouchers expired shortly before Christmas. I called the business after Christmas, 10 days after expiration. They denied me use of the coupon. I tried contacting Groupon about the issue. They did nothing. I felt disappointed. The coupon had just lapsed. It should not have been difficult to give me a break. This was going to be my first visit to a car detailing company. I would have brought more business just as a thanks for the consideration. Instead, I get the cold shoulder. I am pretty sure I am done with Groupon. I was wondering how many other people are running into this problem with the expiration dates.
By the way, I know I have not lost the initial investment, I just wanted to get the service that the coupon would have provided.

I would keep complaining to Groupon, until it gives you Groupon Bucks as refund, especially when the reason for the expiration is legit. (eg. the business is overbooked, the expiration date is too close to the purchasing date ). Hope this helps
