Groupon Rewards launched Sept. 28.
Groupon's IPO today -- the largest since Google in 2004 -- raised $700M and gave the Chicago-based deal company a market value of $12.7B. The price has jumped from $20 to as high as $31 a share, trading at about $26 a share at press time.
But what has Groupon done since its IPO filing June 2? We compiled this list of Groupon's products and features launched in the past five months (and included the one acquisition). Are you impressed, or do you think Groupon could have done more if it hadn't had the distractions of accounting questions, a leaked memo, etc.? Tell us in the comments.
