TORONTO, May 14, 2014 /CNW/ - As spring finally blooms across Canada, so does a fresh opportunity for Canadian consumers to save. For the first time ever in Canada, the Retail and Deal & Coupon industries have come together to establish Canada's National Deals & Coupons Month, taking place throughout the month of May; an event that celebrates the incredible amount of savings, rebates, deals and coupons that consumers can enjoy in this country.
Over 60% of Canadians regularly use deals, coupons and offers and the demand continues to grow. Establishing a month-long shopping event like National Deals & Coupons month in Canada is a way to celebrate both consumers who enjoy and benefit from the savings, and brands/retailers that understand special promotions drive value and attention.
"Establishing a Deals & Coupons Month is a way to bring awareness to the shear amount of potential savings consumers can obtain in Canada", said Albert S. Bitton, President of the Canadian Deals & Coupons Association and creator of Canada's National Deals & Coupons Month. "We are very proud of the caliber of brands taking part in this initiative as their involvement creates a shopping event that we foresee will continue for years to come."
Canadian consumers have an impressive amount of deal & coupon providers to select from for savings, not to mention the amount of deals, coupons and offers that Retailers provide directly. Consumers can save during the month of May by visiting their favourite Deal & Coupon providers, by visiting their favourite online Retailers and seeing what promotions are available or by clicking over to the Deals & Coupons Month website where even more offers will be highlighted.
With providers including Save.ca - one of the country's leading coupon sites, Airmilesshops - the country's Air Miles shopping mall, TravelAlerts - one of the country's foremost travel promotion services and WagJag - one of the leading deals sites in Canada and which also recently received an A- rating from the BBB, and others, there will be a steady stream of offers from quality companies available for consumers to choose from in May.
"WagJag, Save.ca, and TravelAlerts.ca are thrilled to team up with Canada's National Deals & Coupons Month to create an exciting new shopping event in Canada. Our brands aim to deliver amazing savings and value to Canadians every day, and we've pulled together some extra special offers and promotions specifically for Deals & Coupons Month." said Angus Robinson, Director of Marketing – Metroland Media Digital Commerce.
There was a place for a promotional event in Canada during the first half of the year. The first promotional shopping event in Canada is only in August for Back to School promotions, then November has Black Friday and Cyber Monday and December follows with the holiday shopping season, Free Shipping Day and Boxing Week. Now, the month of May is Canada's National Deals & Coupons Month.
"In particular, we'd like to highlight how impressed we are with the strong participation, support and enthusiasm shown by the event's main Sponsors (Airmilesshops.ca, Save.ca, WagJag and TravelAlerts), who not only make this event possible, but also deliver savings, deals, coupons and promotions to Canadian consumers every single day of the year." added Bitton.
Canada's National Deals & Coupons Month is celebrated from May 1st to May 31st
