As part of Google’s ongoing effort to expand their Google Offers service and compete with daily deal aggregators like Groupon, the company announced today plans to expand the service with 14 new deal providers and deals tuned to your interests with a new personalization quiz.
Included in the list of new (mostly little known) providers–Dealfind, Gilt City, DoodleDeals, HomeRun, Juice in the City, GolfNow, kgbdeals, TIPPR, PopSugar Shop, Mampedia, ReachDeals, Plum District, Active.com, zozi, and Schwaggle. All of these services will now have their daily deals displayed through Google Offers as the company aims to provide offers in several new categories including outdoor adventure sports, educational classes, luxury experiences, and events geared towards families. According to TechCrunch, Google will also be handling the customer support for the new deal providers as well.

Also noted in Google’s blog post announcing the expansion is a new personalization quiz that will allow you to receive more relevant offers by selecting categories related to your interests for specific types of deals. The new features and offers will begin rolling out in the San Fran area first with other cities in the coming months. Head over to google.com/offers to learn more.
Google also made a point of thanking Dealmap in their post for the continuing growth of Offers. The San Fran-based visual daily deal aggregator was acquired by Google in August and are currently working with the company on the Offers service.
