Groupon Reserve

  • 3

Groupon just launched an online discount reservations system, similar to Savored but without any pre-purchase requirement. The participating restaurants include Aquavit, Picholine, DB Bistro Moderne, and The Leopard at des Artistes.

  1. It's interesting as this was actually launched back in March 2012. (I got a member's only invitation to Groupon Reserve to access restaurants back then, but then it seemed to fade away.) It seems this is a relaunch after Groupon bought Savored. At the time, they were offering deals for specific high end restaurants, rather than just a discount for the meal.

    1. I do believe Groupon bought Savored last year, and from looking at the OP's link, it looks like Savored in a different skin.

      1. <similar to Savored but without any pre-purchase requirement>

        Savored does not have a pre-purchase requirement.

        There appears to be absolutely no difference between this and Savored, which makes sense since Groupon owns Savored, but if they are identical I wonder what the purpose is.
