Google to Launch Groupon competitor

submitted on January 21, 2011 by mommy25 in "Member's Lounge", last updated on February 7, 2011 by YanBz
As many of you know Google attempted to buy Groupon for $6 Billion in early December 2010 and the deal fell through. They decided to create their own "version" instead so keep an eye out for upcoming HOT DEALS on Google Offers! Read on! I hope they have some great deals as well!! we shall see

    This landing page: http://www.google.com/landing/offers/index.html mentions "prepaid offer program", which tells me the program is already alive, just not publicly launched yet

    Groupon is starting to advertise now, so I guess their worried. Saw a few Groupon commercials during the Super Bowl (Yay Packers!)
