The growing yet under threat daily deals site tries to assist business in finding repeat customers by offering additional treats when they return.
Groupon Rewards is the deal provider’s mostly-automated alternative to the store punchcard. Merchants offer rewards in the form of exclusive Groupons to repeat customers who spend above a certain amount using a credit card on file in their Groupon account. The program was previously being piloted in test markets such as Philadelphia.

For consumers, Groupon automatically tracks their spending at participating businesses and notifies them when they’re eligible to redeem a free Groupon reward.
