Google Offers Goes Live in Portland to Battle it Out with Groupon

This may not be Android-related yet, but you can bet it will be before long.  Yep, Google activated their new Google Offers program today which will be similar (or exactly the same) to the services offered by companies like Groupon and Living Social.  A 1-day deal on a product or service for a fraction of its original price is the scheme, and my fine friends in Portland, Oregon get to experience it all first.  Assuming the beta test here in P-town takes off, the plan is for Google to expend to NYC and then the Bay Area.

And when I say that it’s not Android-related “yet,” that’s because we’re assuming it’ll only be a matter of weeks before an update to Google Maps goes live with Google Offers integration.  Or maybe even a Google Offers stand-alone app?  It only makes sense.

Portlanders, sign up here!

Cheers 0mie!

    Google Offers is going to be a big hit. People already use Google, so they are familiar with the company and they trust them. They already have a great consumer base.

    Consumers can find deals to take advantage of by going to http://www.dailydealpool.com. This site will compile a list of relevant sales and deals in your area, and email them to you daily. This saves consumers from having to search and helps businesses get more advertising!

    Portland? I’m not familiar with much in Oregon, what’s the word in “P-town”? Portland is all I can think of when I think about Oregon…

    Groupon is dumb, they should have sold to Google when they had the chance.

    That’s just to tide you over until LTE gets there. BTW you can also sign up there for alerts when they roll it out to your area.
