Google Offers is a nifty little service that informs users whenever a nearby business if offering a limited time deal, through email or an app. The service has now been integrated with Google+ so that users are able to save as well as share such deals with their friends. The Google Offers service was launched back in 2011 with standalone apps released for both iOS and Android devices. The apps show users offers nearby, based on the location information obtained through their devices.
For now, a limited number of businesses have been allowed to share their offers through their official Google+ accounts, these include Adafruit Industries, Nook, Hello Kitty and more. Zagat, one of the most widely used services for restaurant ratings, is also an early adopter of this new integrated service. Google has been putting a lot of work in to building Google+ as a solid competitor against Facebook and Twitter. Recently at I/O 2013 it revealed a number of new Google+ features, and with this integration of Google Offers, its giving users and businesses yet another reason to hold on to its nascent social network.
