The Chicago-based company Groupon says 'no deal' for now to Google's takeover offer.

The Chicago Tribune reports the popular online coupon site has walked away from a $6 billion offer.

Neither company is commenting.

The New York Times reports that two people briefed on the talks expect Groupon to eventually OK a deal after some sticking points are cleared up. But in the past Groupon's chief executive has expressed interest in taking the company public.
