Groupon Select promo 50% off first purchase (up to $50) Works on Switch Lite YMMV

So I was looking at Switch Lites on groupon goods because if you join Groupon Select you get 15% off purchases and free shipping for being a member. When I put the Switch Lite in my cart and went to "my cart," a green banner appeared at the top of the screen that said "Get $50 off this item." The promo is actually 50% off your first purchase, up to $50. You have to join Groupon Selects to get the promo. But here is why this may be YMMV. The promo didnt appear at checkout so I did a live chat with customer service and they were super nice and they placed the order for me and applied the $50 promo. The total came to $154.41 charged to my card.

 

This promo will lock you in to 6 months of groupon select @4.99 a month with the first month free which comes out to $25 spread out over a 5 month period.  My GCU expired and I buy so many games that the 15% off all purchases and free shipping works for me. This may not be for everyone.

Don't you have to pay $25 to join Groupon Selects?

My wife joined and it only charged her $4.99 after her free 1 month trial was up. I didnt see anything about a $25 charge, nor was I charged $25.

Thanks, OP! The same thing happened to me. It was $5 to sign up with Selects and it automatically gave me a $30 off coupon. I just got onto chat and explained the situation and they gave me another $20 off since the promo didn't work for me either.

It’s a 6 month membership at $5 a month, so basically yes it’s $25 since the first month is free.

Yep. Be careful everyone. Sounds like you're in for 6 months now.

After initial 6-month membership, you'll be automatically billed $4.99/month."

If this is the case Im fine with it. My GCU finally expired and I buy so many games for all my consoles that the 15% off all purchases and free shipping is a bonus for me. This may not be for everyone though, so thanks for the update. Im wondering if I wasnt charged the fee because the promo didnt work and I had to go through customer service who just added the promo money as groupon bucks. Im starting to think Im not locked in for 6 months at all. I am going to keep my eye on it. I updated the post.
