- Most of Groupon clones seem to have disappeared and Groupon itself also looks not so active as before. LUXA maybe one of the few successful services considering JAFCO has invested 1 billion yen in total so far. Another difference with Groupon in addition to its target customers is that it sells goods like cosmetics and home appliances. So, it is actually not appropriate to say it is a Groupon clone now.
