Google Checkout offers Black Friday discounts
Google is offering Black Friday savings on online purchases made through its payment system called Google Checkout.
Save between $5 and $30 at participating e-retailers, such as: Buy.com, BlueNile and ShoeBuy.com.
PayPal, Google Checkout’s competitor, is also offering savings with 15% off purchases at online retailers like Barnes & Noble.com and 1-800-Flowers.com.
Both payment systems are likely to garner more attention as a greater number of consumers buy gifts online rather than at brick-and-mortar stores.
