Google Offers, Google's version of Groupon or LivingSocial, is open for sign ups in following areas: Portland, Oregon, and will soon offer daily deals from local restaurants and businesses in New York City (Downtown, Midtown, Uptown), Oakland/East Bay, and San Francisco.
Users can subscribe to get discounts via email in any or all of those available cities. After signing up, Google's confirmation promises "regular emails" which sounds like not necessarily daily" with discounts of "50% off or more."
Here's the Google confirmation message:
Thanks for subscribing to Google Offers BETA -- San Francisco! We're excited that you've joined us as we partner with some of the best local businesses in your area to bring you great deals at 50% off or more.
Once Google Offers is available in San Francisco we'll send you regular emails letting you in on amazing offers in your area.
We'll be in touch.
