Wonder if Groupon wants that Google cash now...

Facebook Launches Deals to Compete With Groupon

Facebook's anticipated 'Groupon-killer' offering group-based local coupon dealsreportedly launches on Tuesday in five pilot cities in the U.S. including Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, San Diego and San Francisco. The service is called Facebook Deals--the old Facebook Deals announced in November appears to be renamed Check-In Deals--and will focus on offering discounts for group activities such as such as 50 percent off movie tickets for four or 75 percent off bowling for six. You will be able to buy local deals using your credit card or Facebook credits, according to The New York Times. You will then print out a voucher that you can take with you to redeem your deal.
