Groupon Announces the Most Pampered City

In honor of Beauty Week, Groupon set out to find the most pampered cities in America. To determine the winner, the local commerce and daily deals site ranked 150 cities based on how much residents have spent so far this year on pampering Groupon deals, including haircuts and coloring, nails, facials, teeth whitening and tanning.

The internal study evaluated cities in those categories on a purchases per subscriber basis. And the results revealed that the “Most Pampered City in America” is Green Bay, Wisconsin.
