Dealfind Celebrates Two-Year Anniversary Having Saved North American Consumers More Than $530 Million
Company Offering $5 Promo Codes and Giveaway in Honor of Milestone
TORONTO, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dealfind, the third largest group buying site in North America(1), today celebrates the company's two-year anniversary since launching back in May of 2010. Through the group buying site, North Americans have purchased nearly 2.4 million vouchers for restaurants, spas, salons, automotive services, home services, jewelry, electronics, cosmetics, hotels, activities, and much more at 50 to 90 percent off, saving them a total of more than $530 million.
In honor of this company milestone, Dealfind will be rewarding all its customers with a 24-hour $5 Dealfind promo code as a thank you for being part of the company's tremendous success. The company is also giving away a Louis Vuitton handbag and a just released new iPad to celebrate its young birthday.
"We are humbled by the success we've encountered over the last two years," said Dealfind Co-Founder and President Gary Lipovetsky. "It's remarkable that since our initial launch in Toronto, we have expanded to 70 other North American cities and saved our customers more than a half of a billion dollars – we're extremely proud of that fact. We know we're helping people get the most of their hard-earned dollars by bringing them exclusive deals on the goods and services they both need and want."
In just two years, Dealfind has spread to consumers in 41 U.S. markets and 30 markets in Canada. Along with this vast market expansion, Dealfind has continued to find new ways for consumers to save money in addition to traditional daily deals. Over the last year, Dealfind added Travel, Product and Everyday Deals, presenting customers with a greater variety of discounts to choose from.
'Travel Deals' make getaways affordable for consumers year-round, bringing them weekly offers on hotels and resorts that include a combination of overnight stays, spa treatments, restaurant credits and more, from locations all around North America. Hotel partners can boost their ROI through these carefully timed deals.
'Product Deals' are available nationally giving all subscribers access to the same deals and discounts regardless of location. This category of deals gives customers the opportunity to purchase electronics, jewelry, cosmetics, housewares and other in-demand products at a significant price cut.
Through 'Everyday Deals', users are provided with instantly available deals of up to 90 percent off searchable by location, category and time, ideal for when a customer needs to take care of a necessary errand or wants to go out to eat at a discount. This type of deal gives merchants more control and flexibility when hosting deals and a way to attract customers at the times most suitable to them.
Dealfind is also now featuring special promotional "Blowout Sale" days, in which new, amazing deals are offered hourly to chosen markets, encompassing both deals with national retailers and local merchants.
This past December, Dealfind jumped into vertical market segmentation, creating YesMom exclusively devoted to saving moms time and money by offering 50 to 90 percent off products and services for moms, kids and babies. Deals are currently available for Calgary moms, with more cities to be added later this year.
The Dealfind mobile application went live in December of 2012, providing iPhone and Android users the access to daily deals on the go. Last October, Dealfind partnered with Google Offers, giving participating businesses the chance to be featured on Google Offers as well at no extra cost.
"We've accomplished so much in such a short time period," said Lipovetsky. "We're still a young company and the possibilities for growth are endless. We're going to keep looking for ways to improve the customer and merchant experience, and expand into even more markets and verticals. We're excited to see what the next two years have in store for Dealfind."
