That said… they’re now offering what has to be the worst Groupon I’ve ever seen. Originally I thought it was a typo.
Anyone want to take a guess at what they’re asking for a catered “gelato party” for 75 people?
$500? $600? $700?
Try $1,499… and that’s the DISCOUNTED price through Groupon. The “normal” price for such an event is listed at $3,000!
I’ll do the math for you — $3,000 for 75 people comes out to $40/person. For gelato.
Even at $1,499, it’s still $20/person, which strikes me as insane.
You can check out the deal for yourself here. Shockingly, there are no buyers as of yet.
They also have a $2,400 package for up to 150 people and a $3,600 package for up to 250 people — economies of scale drive the price-per-person for the latter down to a still absurd $14.40 ($30.40 without the Groupon).
