January 18, 2011 3:22:49 PM PST
Yelp, the online review website, is now offering special deals in Chicago as it looks to compete with Groupon.

Chicago becomes the fourth city for the company's local offers program, joining San Diego, New York, and San Francisco.

The first Yelp Deal for Chicago is a $50 voucher for food and drinks at a restaurant for just $25.

Yelp Deals will come out twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
