Today in Edmonton there is such a thing as a free lunch - and breakfast too! launches in Edmonton

EDMONTON, Jan. 26 /CNW/ -, one of Canada's largest group-buying sites, launches in Edmonton by picking up the tab at some of Edmonton's favourite spots.  Today, stop by the Italian Bakery between 7:30am and 9:00am, Fulton Market Burger Co between 12:00pm and 1:00pm, or Twisted Yogurt between 2:00pm and 3:00pm, and you'll see representatives from WagJag there to pay for your order (up to $2000 per location).

"Group-buying sites have exploded in popularity in Canada and it's easy to see why - it's all about being in the right place at the right time." says Jeremy Zuker, general manager of WagJag. "We offer anywhere from 50 to 90 percent off of everything from food to services to adventures - and all you have to do to take advantage of the deal is sign up for daily alerts and jump on the deals that interest you."

In a pilot program that began on January 17th, WagJag offered a deal of 90 percent off at local favourite Pete's A Pie Pizzeria.  More than 1901 people bought the voucher that entitled them to $32 worth of take-out or delivery, for only $3.20. This example demonstrates the demand for great deals in Edmonton, and how powerful group-buying can be for local businesses.

"As a truly Canadian company, our real advantage is our ability to work very closely with local merchants to create deals that are meaningful to consumers," says Zuker.  "We want Edmontonians to never pay full price again!"

In December 2010, WagJag had 113 per cent more audience in Canada than its nearest competitor, according to ComScore Media Metrix data.
