The Advertising Standards Authority STRIKES AGAIN!
The ad on the Groupon MyCityDeal site offered customers a four-course meal for two with a bottle of wine, or two pints of any alcoholic or soft drink, at the Wagon and Horses restaurant for £24, rather than £92.
Groupon claimed this was a 74% discount, however, one customer complained the number was exaggerated.
In its defence, Groupon said the calculation of the offer price was made on the basis of the most expensive items on the menu at the time it signed the deal with the restaurant.
The ad’s small print, which had been incorporated following a similar ASA adjudication last month, said the discount is based on "highest price".
