Groupon Offers Dr. Seuss Discount

Want a discount with your green eggs and ham? Groupon is offering a 67 percent savings on art from Seuss Prints.

Seuss Prints reproduces the artwork of children’s author Dr. Seuss as decorative prints. Groupon has a special deal with two options for customers: for $29 you can purchase an $89 unframed print, or for $49 you can buy a $118 framed print.

Here’s more about this offer: “Each print comes with an artist biography and unframed prints are slipped into a protective envelope for shipping to prevent smearing, crinkling, and acts of sabotage by jealous Richard Scary characters. Seuss Prints crafts only 2,500–5,000 of each image, and today’s deal expires in two months, so Groupon holders must act quickly to acquire a print.”
