    Do hotel rooms reserved through a Groupon offer get a stay credit/points? Anyone know? If so, it's great for a mattress run, right? $65 with breakfast!

    I dont know how Groupon works, but if you dont pay teh Hotel itself dont expect any type of credit, sort of like priceline. Ive used coupons at numerous Hotels and have always gotten credit (except for Priority Club props) but then Im actually paying the hotel at checkout

    I think Groupon is that once x amount of people agree to purchase said discount they charge your CC and you simply give a receipt to whomever, if thats the case I wouldnt expect any type of credit or pts to accure since its a 3rd party transaction and you arent paying for it Groupon is

    It would normally be treated as a prepaid third-party. Don't expect SPG points or credit.
