Google Offers Continues Expansion Into More Cities
Google announced today that it is launching Google Offers in four new cities: Baltimore, Minneapolis, San Diego and San Jose.
Just last week, the product launched in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, with 25 more cities promised in the near future. I guess that leaves 21 more to be on the look out for soon, though it’s highly doubtful they’ll stop there.
The first offer for Baltimore is for the Blue Hill Tavern, which is called one of the city’s “most impressive dining spaces.” For Minneapolis, it’s the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. In San Diego, customs can get an offer from Crazee Burger, and in San Jose, it’s Sonoma Chicken Coop.
While some of the daily deals providers have seemingly backed off a little (namely Facebook and Yelp), it’s clear that Google is far from backing off of the space.
Last week, Google also introduced a new feature for Google Wallet called “Featured Offers,” which gives Google Wallet users more exclusive offers from businesses.
