Google has gobbled up another one.

The Internet search giant’s latest acquisition in the mobile space comes in the form of daily deal aggregator The Dealmap.

Calling itself the world’s largest mobile deals aggregator, The Dealmap culls deals from more than 400 sources and, in turn, provides users with the ability to view deals mapped out across their general vicinity via the company’s mobile applications.

The Dealmap reportedly has two million users, all of whom contribute 85 million monthly visits to its partner networks.

“We believe Google provides the ideal platform to help us accelerate our growth and fulfill our mission,” the company says on its website following the Google acquisition.

We’re passionate about helping people save money while having great local experiences, and in Google we’ve found the perfect partner that shares this passion, as well as our vision and strategy. We believe that joining Google will help us innovate in new and unexplored areas of commerce.

Until further notice – in other words, until Google employs a strategy for its new acquisition – The Dealmap will continue to support its “core products and partner services.”

”We are impressed with what The Dealmap team has accomplished and excited to welcome them to Google,” a Google representative was quoted saying via TechCrunch. “We’ve been thrilled with the early success of our commerce offerings, and we think they can help us build even better products and services for consumers and merchants.”

Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.
