For Redemption in the United States,
You May Be Eligible for Benefits From The Settlement
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit concerning Groupon vouchers.   You may be a member of the class whose rights may be affected by this lawsuit.  The sole purpose of this notice is to inform you of the lawsuit and the settlement so that you may decide what steps to take in relation to it.
More information regarding the settlement, your rights under the settlement, instructions on how to be excluded from the settlement or object to the settlement, and a form to fill out to obtain settlement benefits are available here:

Please visit the website linked above to obtain important information regarding the settlement and your rights.

If the settlement is approved, class members who complete and return a claim form may be eligible to receive a Settlement Voucher entitling them to redeem unused Groupon vouchers purchased between November 1, 2008 and December 1, 2011 for redemption in the United States that are past their stated expiration date.  Settlement Vouchers may be redeemed at the location of the merchant identified on the voucher, for goods and/or services equal to the purchase price of the voucher.
