2) Google has unveiled a way to search for local coupons. Let's say you want a car wash, and you are in area code 94303. Well, type in "car wash 94303" into Google Maps, and it will search for local coupons that fit the request. Here is the Mercury News story about it. (Note, we just tried the 94303 example, and Google doesn't have anything yet, so maybe this is early days). In any case, this offering is part of a Google deal with Valpak, the company that sends you those bulging blue envelopes full of coupons. Google will be offering its online component. Great, now we will try to get rid of all that paper waste coming to our mailbox from Valpak!
