Everybody Wins…or at Least Gets a Discount: Dealfind Raises the Bar on Group Buying Phenomenon

Canadian daily deal site has provided almost $100 million in consumer savings to Canadians

TORONTO, April 18 /CNW/ - The bar has been raised in the online group discount -buying world. Daily deal site Dealfind has successfully achieved multiple record-setting deals that lasted from one to three days in leading Canadian markets, including: Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, and Halifax.  Expanding the options in the way that Canadians access local merchants, Dealfind has provided a total of almost $100 million in consumer savings since its May 2010 launch. The offerings, which change on a daily basis, run the gamut from the fun to the practical, and include restaurants, lawn care, spa packages, household services, organic meats, car detailing packages and more.

"We had a vision for being the leading group-buying company in Canada and judging by the recent uptake on these deals, it looks like our goal is being achieved," said Gary Lipovetsky, President, Dealfind. "Our 11 years of experience in connecting local merchants with their target audiences, and continued consumer demand to receive the absolute best prices for products and services are the main reasons behind our success. We continue to optimize the process of connecting merchants with motivated customers and vice versa."

Based on a model that provides savings through group-purchasing goods and services, Dealfind connects consumers with local merchants. Online shoppers looking for value have 24 to 72 hours (depending on the day of the week) to purchase the Dealfind item of the day before the offer closes. As well, Dealfind provides intrepid purchasers an incentive to make money by rewarding every customer referral with a portion of dollars earned by the company.
