Is This Google’s Groupon Clone? Well The Logo Fits …

A report on Mashable seems imply that Google will be imminently launching a Groupon clone, called Google Offers. By the look of the documents they have received from a source this product seems like it would be your run of the mill Groupon clone, “A Google Offer is a daily deal that enables subscribers to pre-purchase products and services at an attractive discount.” Ha.

Sean McCann adds another piece of the puzzle with a Google hosted Google offers logo, of the URL https://www.google.com/images/logos/offers_logo.gif. It matches the one in the document below. The 404 page for http://google.com/offers is also graphically different from those of http://google.com/test and http://google.com/deals.

Last time the search giant attempted a foray into the deals space, it reportedly offered Groupon itself $6 billion for an acquisition. Groupon didn’t bite looks to be progressing towards an IPO.

I’ve contacted Google for a confirmation and will update this post when they respond.
