    Nice post. Thing I don’t get is even assuming they need to spend tons to lock up their subscribers – they aren’t really locking them up. I could sign up for as many social deal email lists as I  want. 

    Their gross profit growth is stunning, but I am not sure why Groupon thinks they have a long term moat that is worth protecting with these incredible marketing costs.
