The rumour tombola has been in full swing in the past week with speculation that Google will buy Groupon.
Today, the web is spinning with news from VatorNews that Google has just bought the coveted voucher website for $2.5bn, according to an unnamed insider.
Groupon offers daily discount deals to locals and has a global presence. It makes serious money in a space that has been gaining real traction and the acquisition would give Google considerable leverage in location-based services and information.
Neither Groupon or Google have commented.
