Here is the email I received from Groupon when I told them to delete my account.

Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us.

We understand that this is a sensitive topic, and that some of our customers may not agree with our choice to pause the promotion of firearm-related deals. Groupon has always aimed to offer a diverse range of products and services to meet the various tastes and interests of our subscribers. However, at this time, enough customers and merchants have voiced their opinions that we believe a hiatus is warranted.

Please note that we have never sold guns, and this hiatus only applies to firearm-related deals including shooting ranges, clay pigeon shooting, and concealed weapons training classes. We have not made a final determination regarding this category -- we are simply taking a break and may reevaluate in the future.

Per your request, I've unsubscribed this email address. You will stop receiving Groupon promotional emails within 48 hours. I can also close your account, but I want to be sure you're aware that once it is closed, you will no longer be able to access previously purchased vouchers on, and any existing Groupon Bucks will be voided. Please let me know if you would like to proceed.

We genuinely appreciate your opinion and the feedback you've given us. I'll be sure to share your comments with the appropriate people.

In short, I told them to not to close my account, but to delete it, and that I would not support them ever again because of their actions.

I got that same email and replied that I did, in fact, want them to delete my account. Here's what I got the second time:

Me too! I wonder if they are realizing that supposed complaints that they received against gun ads are now being outweighed by cancelled accounts. :grin:

I got my reply this afternoon, but it said that my account was deleted. No further attempts to string me along. Maybe they are getting the hint. I was really hoping they did try to give me one last chance so I could tell them where to put those bonus points or whatever.
