Items do not fit!!! yes may I speak to someone from Groupon please you got that the worst customer service in the world..


I paid for 4 16x20 canvases by Printer Pix off the Living Social App. The printer Pic codes do not work. They only let you use 1. When I contacted them they said they didn’t care. And then I went to Living Social and they are doing NOTHING. Awful!! It’s a scam!
