Google Offers NYC

We wrote back in January of Google’s attempt to compete with Groupon and LivingSocial in the lucrative daily deals market (Google Groupon Clone – “Google Offers”).

Yesterday, Google announced that after a successful beta test in Portland, they will continue the beta in NYC and the San Francisco Bay area starting this week.  The service will be available to subscribers who sign-up at google.com/offers or to those who visit the new “Today’s Offer” tab in Google Shopper 2.0 for Android.  Additionally, these “Offers” can be bought, viewed and redeemed all within Google Shopper 2.0 for Android.

The next reported cities on the list for product roll-out are Austin, Boston, Denver, Seattle and Washington D.C.

Google Groupon Clone – “Google Offers”

Rebuffed by Groupon, Google, which bid $6B for the daily deals site, is wasting little time churning out a cloned deal offering of its own, the website Mashable, recently reported.

“‘Google Offers is a new product to help potential customers and clientele find great deals in their area through a daily email,” the fact sheet says.

Google Offers looks and operates much like Groupon or LivingSocial. Users receive an e-mail with a local deal of the day. They then have the opportunity to buy that deal within a specific time limit (we assume 24 hours). Once enough people have made the purchase, the Google Offer is triggered and users get that all-too-familiar $10 for $20 deal for that Indian restaurant they’ve never tried.”
