    Yes it's gone. It's been gone for a week or 2 now :( Hopefully it will come back though!

    I really enjoyed getting 12 points per dollar on Groupon purchases. Hopefully this will come back.

    I just wrote about this in my blog.

    I wonder why they severed ties (or if they severed ties)? why didn't they just decrease the bonus points to 5 or something like that?

    My gut says that the groupon bonus was a holdover from the holiday season. Now that the season has passed, they've pulled out.

    I have actually seen it missing before and then it came back. So, who knows. UR has had some shifts since after the holidays.

    Yep, I wrote about it being missing (probably in my last weekend update). Now I know that you do not carefully study every one of my posts! I'll forgive you this time... ;)

    Other defectors, etc: I haven't noticed anything special. I did see that toysrus is there and I'm not sure whether it was there before.

    Aha - I was in Baton Rouge... Must've missed it. Was it in the test?

    I used it last week! Got 1100 UR points from a $90ish purchase. Sad to see it go :(

    Toys r US has been there for a while, probably the beginning. It was even one of the bonus categories during the holidays

    It really has come and gone more than once. Glad it came back again. ;)
