Will you drop Groupon for Google Offers? Google hopes so! Tomorrow Google will officially launch Google Offers, a direct competitor of the popular “daily deal” website, which has already seen its share of competitors, such as LivingSocial and local Knoxville-owned FlutterToday. A neat feature they are adding to the mix is Google Wallet, which allows you to view offers from local companies on Google Offers. In the future, you will be able to store loyalty cards, gift cards, receipts, boarding passes and tickets, all on your phone. Don’t get too excited right now, though, unless you live on the West Coast or NYC, and you also own an Android smartphone. Google will be rolling out the service to different cities throughout the rest of the year, but you can subscribe to get notified at http://www.google.com/offers. Just click on the city drop-down menu, then click “Sign up” at the bottom.
