Avid Bargain-Hunter Seeks Same for Good Times, Possible Procreation

Those clever folks at deal-a-day outfit Groupon have come up with a novel approach to building the next generation of customers: Breed them.

The incentive? A $60,000 college scholarship for up to two qualifying tots a year. A close reading of the site indicates Groupon employees are having way too much fun.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
