Another Google Product That May Have Flown Under Your Radar!

I bet you have heard of Groupon! How about LivingSocial? Restaurant.com? Google Offers? Wait. Google Offers!!? That's right, Google has established a presence in the deal of the day world. If you haven't heard about this event, you're not alone.....

Currently, Google limits these daily deals to selected US markets.  The service began quietly in Portland and has expanded to several dozen US cities with more to come. There is a complete list of city deals and an easy sign up process available on this link. (Just tap the city box on the upper middle of the navigation bar and look for an area near you.

Occasionally they also throw out a national deal such as today's 50% off for phone and tablet cases from Case-Mate! Before your iPhone, iPad, or shiny new Android toy hits the bricks and maybe even bites the bucket, get a stylish new case. While you're at it, sign up for Google Offers. I know, I know, it is another promotional email in your inbox, but the national deals are worth a look and if you are lucky enough to live in a city already on Google's list, all the better!

Please note that this is still a product in beta release. Among other things, this means Google Products may not ever be released to the public in a final form. Then again, Gmail was in beta for years and that product seems to have caught on.....
