NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- What do you do if you're worth, like, a billion dollars? Try purchasing a Super Bowl ad. Groupon, the breakout online coupon company that recently raised $950 million in funding, just secured an ad spot for Super Bowl XLV.
According to Ad Age, spots this Sunday were selling for nearly $3 million. Groupon, which turned down a $6 billion takeover offer from Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and is known for witty press releases and cheeky responses to speculation, will take a spot in one of the most widely viewed televised events in America.
A Groupon spokesperson would not give additional details about the price tag or time-slot of the ad.
When the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Green Bay Packers this Sunday, the company's ad will run alongside celebrity filled spots: Justin Bieber and Ozzy Osbourne are teaming up for Best Buy (BBY, Fortune 500), while Kim Kardashian will star in a Skechers ad.
Chicago-based Groupon has been the topic of heated initial public offering speculation as it continues to expand exponentially.
