tbd if Groupon should be worried about this
After failing in a reported attempt to buy Groupon for $6 billion, Google has decided it can out Groupon Groupon.
Mountain View-based Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) is in pre-beta mode on Google Offers, its take on the now-ubiquitous daily-deal business model.
Google Offers will start first in Portland, Ore., with San Francisco and New York City following shortly thereafter. Wannabe users in these markets can already sign up to receive Google Offers whenever those deals go live.
