into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
While the economy appears to be looking up, people are still looking for new ways to save money and find the best deals. According to a recent Bing/Impulse Survey, nearly 50 percent of adults say they use more coupons today than they did a year ago. While we’re enjoying the savings, the number of deals out there can be overwhelming. Respondents to the survey cited a 47 percent surge in the use of local deals with companies like Living Social and Groupon. Coupons and deals offering discounts on local products and services are going gangbusters, with retailers and service providers now collectively offering hundreds of thousands of deals daily. In fact, 74 percent of survey respondents admitted they search multiple coupon sources each week, and a quarter of respondents claimed to spend up to an hour sifting through possible deals.
With many of us the verge of a possible “deals” overload, Bing’s mobile deals make it much easier to make local deal decisions, helping you save time and money. Bing mobile deals — available at m.bing.com — aggregates many of the Web’s hottest local deals, including deals from Groupon, LivingSocial and Tippr, giving you one-spot access to more than 200,000 local coupons in more than 14,000 cities in the U.S. You can search by daily deals, nearby deals, keywords or deals by category, such as restaurants, spa services, arts and entertainment, and even nightlife.

Weren't we supposed to get Bing Deals on the desktop soon? It seems rather odd that you currently can't get these deals on any device that has a Microsoft operating system yet...
