Starbucks is now using Google Offers and will run its first deal on Wednesday. The deal will be $5 for a $10 eGift card.
"In less than a year, Google Offers has grown from one to 40 cities across the country, giving people super-savings with daily deals for locally loved businesses and well-known national brands like Starbucks," a Google spokesperson tells WebProNews.
If the half price deal isn't good enough, there are other benefits to the Starbucks deal.
"For every deal purchased, Google Offers will donate $3 to the Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) for the Create Jobs for USA Fund (up to $3 million)," explains Michael Haswell, Head of Business Development with Google Commerce. "Founded by Starbucks and OFN, the Create Jobs for USA Fund helps provide loans to community businesses in order to create and sustain jobs in America. So, when you buy this Google Offer, you’re also taking action to help Americans get back to work."
The offer will be sent to Google Offers users by email.
Last month, Google Offers added 11 new partners, enabling it to receive offers from 8Moms, APDailyDeals, AT&T Interactive, Boston.com, DailyDeals.com, DoubleTakeDeals, Half Off Depot, Morgan’s Deals, Savored, Signpost, and Urban Dealight.
