Deal Ends Up One of Company's Most Loved Deals
TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ -- Dealfind, Canada's most visited daily deal site, announced its Vancouver daily deal with three area Dairy Queens ended as one of the site's more popular deals of all time. The deal featuring $2.50 Medium Blizzards sold 2,937 vouchers.
The deal offered 52 percent savings off the $5.25 retail price of the Blizzard. Dealfind customers had the option to purchase unlimited vouchers for themselves or as gifts for the popular frozen treat, which can be redeemed at the West Broadway, Denman Street and Anderson Road locations by Oct. 25.
"We are thrilled by the number of deals purchased," said Dealfind Co-Founder and President Gary Lipovetsky. "We knew the Dairy Queen Blizzard was popular, but we didn't realize just how much people crave the dessert. With our company's growth and expansion over the past six months, Dealfind is picking up users at a rapid pace. With this Dairy Queen deal we have been inundated with new Vancouver subscribers during the deal's existence."
