Pulse is not just for news feeds and Facebook links. Now you can also get nearby daily deals.
With the latest update to both the iPhone and Android apps,Pulse will pull nearby Groupon deals, when you enable location sharing.
Pulse lets you subscribe to different deals by city. You can see them as a stream in your Pulse reader, along with deals from nearby cities. If you click through to purchase one, Pulse will get an affiliate fee. It’s certainly a better way to peruse the deals than the daily email. You can also save a deal for later purchase.
These are regular Groupon deals, not the instant Groupon Now deals that pop up in Loopt, but as Groupon Now expands to more cities, Pulse may add those in the future.
