The guys over at Mashable seem to have gotten a hold of a “confidential fact sheet straight from the Googleplex” which outlines a new Google product: Google Offers. This latest offering from the search giant appears to be another group buying service similar to Groupon.
The documents discovered by Mashable explain the basic idea: Customers receive an email with a local deal and are given the chance to buy that deal within a certain time frame. If enough people buy the deal the offer is triggered… So yeah exactly the same as Groupon.
Google has not made any official announcements regarding Google Offers yet.
