Groupon announced this week a new customer loyalty program called Groupon Rewards, which will offer cashback for repeat purchases. They might as well start mockups for the Groupon credit card now.

Plum District is like Groupon and Living Social, but founded by a mom–hence its tagline “For Moms. By Moms.” Or dogs, whatever.
