    There seems to be a hiccup - was working for me a few minutes ago - but now the page is showing up as " widget not available". Until further notice ---

    Looks interesting, but also makes the screen look busy for loading graphics.

      It;s a part of my "iGoogle" page - that's why it's busy.

    These seem pointless to me. These offers are nothing that I can't find on buxr. Except buxr has even more to offer.

      Yeah - I was a little dissapointed too - they were supposed to launch something in competition to GROUPON. But this - you are right -- just like we have here. But I don't think this is the final version. Am sure they have something more to "Offer" Mr Green

      We will have to wait and watch

    Google likes to have a grand entry, so I'm sure they got something up their "sleeve"!

    Most of these offers are pulled from sites like Valpak and CitySearch. Also, there is a ton of useless ads. Take this this offer for example:

    Discount Tire
    2341 W Algonquin Road,Algonquin,IL
    (847) 458-2774

    Save money on tires and wheels! Visit our site to learn more about our specials, promos & rebates!
    Save time and money - shop, research, and buy your next set of tires online. Visit our site to learn more about current specials, promotions, and rebates.
    Expires: 2011 Feb 23
    citysearch.com


    You don't learn anything other than the company has "something" on sale. I wonder why it even has an expiration date. Discount Tire could have an ad like this any time of the year

      Maybe this is still test data. This is nothing like what they promised ( or we expected ) .

    Hopefully they're still just working out the "kinks". I've been really excited about this and am holding out hope it'll get better. Big Grin
