Google has started sending out emails this week notifying its customers that it will soon start refunding their unused Google Offers.
The refunds signal a shift in how the Google Offers local deals platform works, as outlined in a July blog post.
Previously, shoppers had to purchase these deals for local businesses in advance, in much the same way they do for Groupon and LivingSocial vouchers. Now, Google Offers customers can digitally clip the offers in advance without paying, save them to their Google account and then pay when they are redeemed in store by showing the offer on a mobile phone.Google To Refund You For Unused Google Offers [allthingsd.com]
“Users can now easily discover and save Google Offers in the Maps app, Search, Wallet, and on sites around the Web, without having to purchase them in advance, so we’re refunding previously purchased offers that we believe haven’t been used,” a Google spokesperson said in an emailed statement to AllThingsD.
