Yahoo has launched a website to provide daily deals, online coupons, grocery coupons, local coupons, store circulars and exclusive deals all in one place: the new Yahoo Deals website. The site also debuts social and community features as well as money-saving video content.

The Yahoo Deals website includes coupons and offers provided by Coupons.com, Valpak, Visa, Next Jump, Ecobunga and Greenzer (for eco-friendly products), TechBargains.com and LogicBUY (for computers and electronics), CouponAlbum, CouponMountain, BradsDeals.com and Dealnews.

The site also features gas finder module that helps users find the cheapest gas by zip code, and a new community feature allows users to post or read comments on each deal.

Greg Hintz, head of Yahoo Shopping, said, "Frugality is the new cool. We now know that couponing and bargain hunting are losing their stigma and are now a regular habit for many people. Our goal at Yahoo! is to be the center of people's online lives and we're making Yahoo! the easiest place for consumers to find and manage the coupons and deals that are relevant to their lives."

Yahoo Deals also provides a Twitter feed that churns out deals in real-time.
