Flashback to December. Google throws $6 billion in Groupon’s lap.. Groupon with out hesitation throws the green right back.
Next four months leading up to today. Google develops Google Offers, Groupon’s direct competition, Groupon suffers extreme controversy for their politically incorrect riskay Super Bowl ads. Watch out Groupon, Google is coming for you.. Google Offers is starts in 6 different locations East Bay Area/Oakland, CA, San Francisco, CA, Portland, OR, and NYC’s uptown, midtown, and downtown. Google Offers is promising 50% off or more to places you love in the cities/areas you subscribe to. Much like a Groupon they will email subscribers with deals of the day and you will have a very limited amount of time to act on the deal (maybe 24-48 hours) and also like Groupon there will be a minimum amount of people needed to sign up for deal to take place.
