AmazonLocal deals in New York City

Ratcheting up the pressure of Groupon, AmazonLocal pushes into the Big Apple, increasing its daily-deals footprint.

AmazonLocal, the online retail giant's Groupon knockoff, is bringing its deals to the Big Apple and several other cities.

According to The New York Times, the daily deals from Amazon will begin tomorrow in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The first offers will include 50 percent off tickets to a new Cirque du Soleil show and a 74 percent discount for a month of Bikram Yoga classes.

Amazon rolled out its daily-deals service in June, just about the same time that Google launched its would-be Groupon killer, Google Offers.

The Associated Press is reporting that AmazonLocal will be operating in 30 locations in 10 states by early September.
