In a move to help users find the right deal, Microsoft is launching Bing Offers in the U.S. The company says that Bing Offers is basically the next version of Bing Deals which was launched a couple of years ago. Contrary to Bing Deals which aggregates deals from the web, Bing Offers is expected to aggregate deals from local providers. "If you are looking for tasty treats, fun activities or a relaxing spa, need to fix your home or automobile or just want some retail therapy, Bing Offers provides simple ways to discover the best deals closest to you," the team behind Bing explained.
So what can users expect from the new service? First, users can expect their favorite deals in one place - no more browsing through different websites. And since the focus has shifted to local, users can also expect to find the best deals more quickly. Lastly, Bing Offers is also available on different devices including tablets, mobile devices, and PCs, which is an ear-candy for the omnipresent shopper. If you'd like to give it a try, head over to the Bing Offers page.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
