Groupon app offers cash back on groceries

Groupon's Snap features a list of everyday grocery goods

Deal-of-the-day website Groupon is navigating the world of grocery with the release of a new app called Snap.

The app features a list of grocery and CPG goods. If you buy one of the products on the list, you can take a photo of your receipt as proof and Groupon will mail a cheque for a discounted amount once your total exceeds $20.
