Cults: Go Outside

84/100

First heard this new track from the highly mysterious band Cults via G vs. B weeks ago, and today the almighty Pitchfork has chimed in as well.  Noone seems to know much of anything about the band other than the fact that they have this great single, “Go Outside” (and a 7” over at their bandcamp page).  Read the P4k review if you want a heady deconstruction – but otherwise just know that it’s a female fronted pop song delivered via some really cheery sounding glockenspiel over a relatively simple bassline.   It makes a great soundtrack to a sunny Spring Friday (or it will once I leave work).

Groupon Extends VIP Loyalty Program Test

Manufacturing Close-Up March 19, 2012 Groupon VIP is currently being tested in select markets and allows members early access to deals, the ability to purchase closed or sold out deals and anytime-refund capabilities.

In a release the company noted that Groupon VIP provides members early access to deals beginning at 12 p.m. the day before they’re scheduled to run. As Groupon deals can sometimes sell out and early appointment times may fill up quickly, VIP allows members first dibs on purchases and preferred appointments. Groupon VIP also gives participants access to Groupon’s Deal Vault of closed and sold-out deals – deals that are no longer available to regular Groupon subscribers. web site groupon houston

Additionally, there’s relief for those who have purchased a deal that’s about to expire, moved to a new neighborhood or got dumped before a big date; VIP’s return policy allows one-click, anytime exchanges for purchases made as a member of the program in the form of Groupon Bucks, which are credits that can be used towards the purchase of additional Groupons.

“We’re continually innovating to improve the Groupon customer experience,” said Jeff Holden, senior vice president of product development at Groupon. “In the case of VIP, we asked our customers ‘If you could wave a magic wand and change Groupon in any way, what would you ask for?’ The three main features of VIP were at the top of the list: early access to deals, ability to purchase closed or sold out deals and anytime-refunds.” Groupon began testing VIP earlier last month in select markets with plans to eventually roll out the program nationwide. in our site groupon houston

Groupon features a daily deal on the best stuff to do, eat, see and buy in 48 countries around the world. Groupon uses collective buying power to offer huge discounts and provide a win-win for businesses and consumers, delivering more than 1,000 daily deals globally.
