NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — If you can’t be there in person for Mother’s Day, how about sending a replica of yourself?
Groupon, is a deal-of-the-day recommendation service for consumers. Every 24 hours, Groupon broadcasts an electronic coupon for a restaurant or store in your city, recommending that local service while also offering you a 40% to 60% discount if you purchase that service.
Manufacturing company SWIGRO has teamed up with Groupon.com, to offer consumers a chance to get a 3D-printed model of themselves sent straight to their moms for the special holiday.
“And while your mom can’t claim this life-size replica of you as a dependent on her taxes, she will be able to take it to the movies, drive in the carpool lane, and tell it all about how Darlene is really more of a friend than a hairdresser,” the Groupon offer reads.
The deal includes a life-size 3D-printed model of yourself, plus a round trip to Alaska where you can get scanned for blueprints.
But it’s definitely not cheap — if you want to get in on the special holiday offer, you’ll have to shell out $30,000.
