    Google Closes Down the Local "Google Offers" Program

    Was just informed by Google that they are retiring the Google Offers tool today.

    Not sure how many of you are using "Offers" but the tool and stats will be available through end of month but you won't be able to use it to create any new offers.

    Here is the message I got:

    Heads up that we are turning off the Google Offers self-service tool today. After March 31st, 2014, all offers that were created through the tool will no longer be available or distributed on Google.

    Users can continue to review the performance of their offers and access their billing summary page through March 31st, 2014. Google will only be charging users for offers saved prior to January 12th, 2014, even if they had a live budget after that date. Please note that business owners will still need to honor any saved offers that have not yet been used.

    Users can visit the Merchant Help Center with any further questions.

    The link above has answers to many question you may have.

    Plus Mike just blogged with greater detail and history about the product.

    Is something new and better coming? One would only think so, but we'll have to wait and see.

    Re: Google Closes Down the Local "Google Offers" Program

    I remember predicting this would happen when they launched. To be honest, they shut it down faster than I expected them to.
