Microsoft starts 'Bing Deals' website Microsoft has launched their new daily deals service.
Adding it to the Bing suite of services, Microsoft has unveiled its new Deals platform this week.

A daily deal site like Groupon, Living Social and others, Deals brings together deals from large stores and small merchants, and is an aggregator.

Says Microsoft: “Instead of building another program, we’re harnessing deals from major providers and retailers.”

Bing Deals offers 200,000 deals from around the nation, eliminating the need to sign up for a million different email notifications.

Check the site here: http://bing.com/deals

Never even heard of techbargains.com; most of these sites are meh any how and most I can't even use since they US only.

Most of that Overstock.com & Living Social is crap anyway. The area I live in doesn't have anything worth going to that doesn't cost a fortune to get to in the first place. I.e., if I get a deal like opera tickets, I still have to travel 2.5 hours just to get to the opera house. And big mamma ain't goin for a Big Mac n shake just before the fat lady sings either. So I think we get the point here.

Frankly these kind of sites are just not functional for my area or even have the items I want.

I'd have to agree with you there, took a look out of curiosity and I doubt I'll go back. You would think if they were going to launch something like this they'd at least have more vendors and deals lined up beforehand. Its like opening a store with nothing to sell, probably the same team in charge of advertising for windows phone.

If your fish seems sick, put it back in the water.
