Groupon and Google go all out

While Groupon is out vaudeville-ing around the globe trying to sell people on its soon-to-be-released IPO, Google Offers is working hard upstage it. Yesterday Google Offers announced it's partnering with 15 other deals sites to expand its reach. By doing this Google gains ground on the likes of Groupon and Living Social while not really having to invest anything, except maybe some kickbacks to its new partners. And for you, dear reader, what does this mean? Probably more emails on day spas, horseback rides and designer jackets to give as gifts to Mother.
