Chicago website Groupon may be useful for saving money, but don't rely on it for a history lesson -- unless you think Alexander Hamilton was a U.S. president.
Groupon issued a news release announcing a President's Day weekend discount of $10 off $40 purchases in honor of the man on the $10 bill, Alexander Hamilton, who the website falsely declared "one of our greatest presidents," USA Today reported Monday.
"The $10 bill, as everyone knows, features President Alexander Hamilton -- undeniably one of our greatest presidents and most widely recognized for establishing the country's financial system," Groupon said on its press page.
Hamilton, who played a key role in authoring the Constitution, was the country's first secretary of the treasury and is known by historians as the founder of the U.S. financial system.
Groupon did not immediately respond to a request for comment, USA Today said.
