Google Coupons: Expires 2006
It almost seems as if Google Coupons is Google's equivalent to a white rhino--they both exist but few have seen one. Google Coupons is a feature within the Google Local Business Center service that allows companies to create Web-based coupons and display them within Google Maps.
The idea behind Google Coupons is that when you are searching for a local business using Google Maps, a local company can deliver a coupon enticing you to do business with it. The coupon would be displayed next to the Google Map and could be printed out and redeemed.
It's a nifty idea, but as an avid user of Google Maps, in the two years Google Coupons has been available I've never come across one when using a map. Have you?
