There always seems to be a kernel of truth in every rumor you hear. Sometimes the details are not correct but the whispers have the right idea in mind. Today there is another rumor, reporting Google has acquired Groupon for $2.5 Billion. We heard this same rumor on November 20th and we ask our readers who they thought would buy Groupon. The results from our Groupon poll are below:

  • 35.71% Google
  • 31.43% Amazon
  • 14.29% Other
  • 7.14% Microsoft
  • 7.14% eBay
  • 4.29% Yahoo

So it seems our readers may be on to something. This morning TechCrunch uncovered some public tweets between Google M&A’s Neeraj Arora and Groupon CEO Andrew Mason which also made an acquisition look likely. So we’ll have to wait and see if an official announcement rounds out Google’s fourth quarter.
