Google In Early Discussions About Buying Out Groupon [RUMOR]

Posted Nov 19, 2010

According to several sources with AllThingsD, Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) is currently in discussions about buying out Groupon. Groupon is a website that provides daily e-mail deals to millions of people across the globe. Rumor has it that Google is even offering a price of about $2-$3 billion, which is higher than an offer that Yahoo! made. The talks are currently in early stages so there’s a chance that it will not end up in any sort of transaction. [AllThingsD]
