Microsoft Launches Bing Deals [bing.com]
Instead of building another program, we’re harnessing deals from major providers and retailers, including Groupon, LivingSocial, Nordstrom, Target and many others, to help you cut through the clutter and find the best deals in one central location. Now you have a place to browse, find and purchase. Because we’ve done the work, all you have to do is go to bing.com/deals.

Glad MS didn't just try and launch another deals company but rather work with existing ones. Less costs and more focus on search = win for bing.

When I read the title, I thought "copycat". I'm impressed that they thought differently. Good job, MS.

It's a bit rubbish. Any search or link redirects to ciao.co.uk. Think that might be UK only though. Doesn't even take you to deep results - just the Ciao homepage.

10/10 for solid strategy.
1/10 for implementation.

Yeah, that's what you get in the UK. The link to the Deals news, above, says US.

we’re harnessing deals


The way of the internet - mashup!

But don't try it at home folks, if YOU do it you're labeled spammer or full of "non-unique" content and banned henceforth from receiving natural search visitors. It's a one way door - your content is part of what brings people to search engines but you can't enjoy the same "harnessed deal" income yourself since the mashup practice is frowned upon. /sigh

Partner, don't consume.

I like it.
