DISCOUNTING HISTORY

Groupon Claims Hamilton as Prez

The company that offers you daily discounts on laser hair removal and upholstery courses is not the most trustworthy source for U.S. presidential history. In promoting a President's Day special, Groupon described Alexander Hamilton as “undeniably one of our greatest presidents.” Unfortunately for Groupon, the highest office Mr. Hamilton ever held was as Secreatary of the Treasury. Fortunately for Groupon, the company's presidential error brought them a ton of free attention.
