Rumors spread of Google-Groupon deal
Google may make a reported $5 billion bid for Groupon, the daily coupon deals website. The purchase would help Google compete in online advertising against Facebook Inc., the Los Angeles Times said. Google-owned Groupon won't monopolize the deal-a-day websites, Bill Yucatonis, CEO of Groupon competitor CoupMe, told the Boston Herald. "It justifies the industry and legitimizes what we do," Yucatonis said. "It doesn't scare me at all."
