I'm a big fan of Groupon - the money saving site - that's why I'm so disappointed with their latest campaign.

Let's gloss over the missing apostrophe in this one though...

Which leads to the Groupon mobile friendly site.
Groupon Mobile Friends Site
Well formatted mobile site. Free text field for an email address and a drop down list of cities they support.

There's no notion of what they'll do with the email address - which is very naughty - but the worst is yet to come.

If you don't have a mobile friendly site, don't run a mobile advertising campaign.
