Lookout Groupon, Google Offers just might eat your lunch.

Looks like Google is positioning itself to offer deals straight to Gmail user inboxes, or to anybody else who signs up for the new Google Offers service.  Cities are limited right now, but the service is expanding rapidly.  Considering Groupon’s inability to turn a profit in the shadow of their enormous burn rate, coupled with their absolutely inflexible management and board, Google Offers could be the iceberg that finally sinks the titanic Groupon.

If the rumors were true, Groupon should have just sold to Google in the first place.  Hindsight 20/20 for Groupon’s board.
