Google Offers beta spreads its daily deals to New York, San Fancisco


Google’s daily deals service Google Offers, currently in “beta” mode, will soon be available to residents in New York City and San Francisco, Google announced on its official blog early this morning. Google Offers is currently available to Portland, Oregon, residents.

To get involved with Google Offers, customers must sign up at Android user can also register through the “Today’s Offer” tab in the Google Shopper 2.0 app.

Google says that Google Shopper 2.0 users can also by, view and redeem a Google Offer of the day through the app. Shopper users can also view deals in the Nearby Offers tab, to catch savings on the fly.

Offers will soon launch in Austin, Boston, Denver, Seattle and Washington D.C., Google says.
