Groupon Coupon Expiration Examined by Connecticut’s Jepsen

Groupon Inc.’s practice of selling group-discount coupons with expiration dates is being reviewed by Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen for possible state law violations.

“It appears that what Groupon Inc. sells or offers may fall within the definition of a gift certificate under Connecticut law,” Jepsen said in a press statement issued today. “Connecticut law prohibits gift certificates from being sold or issued subject to an expiration date.”
