Its purpose is to help members find the best local and national merchandise and services at tremendous bargain prices, and also allow members to post and share their finds and even earn money in the process. The new online shopping club features printable coupons for instant savings, mail-in rebates and closeout specials; grocery store clip and save coupons and year end or daily clearance specials are all in one place.
Local mom and pop small business owners are encouraged to add their best deals free of charge, along with national retailers and online merchants. All deals are tagged by zip code to make local shopping possible. Membership is free.
According to William Reulein, CEO, "We purchased DealBundle a year ago and further developed the service to help everyone find and share the best deals out there, especially local deals. The goal is to help everyone save time, money, and to bring local businesses together with local shoppers." DealBundle, in one big database, combines member added local deal favorites with their best finds from the national services. "The results have been rewarding," he reported. "Members now enjoy a valuable new tool for locating the lowest prices on items they need, right down to daily grocery list items.
"They then review and share the deals they find, and save hundreds of dollars in the process. The service also supports emailing favorite finds to friends and family, or even sending blast emails to entire address books. Interested recipients can subscribe to their friends' daily finds by using RSS to automatically catch those deals every day. The problem with most deal sites," Reulein continued, "is that they are strictly national, and a staff decides which deals are best. DealBundle offers more: the best national deals and the best local deals all in one place, with the members deciding top value."
DealBundle's service also asks its users to review and rank deals or services, so that people can discover the best of the best according to the club, not the staff. "Our job is to provide a platform for everyone to find, share and save the most money possible on merchandise and services," said Reulein. "Local businesses can also post their best deals, and our members will decide how good they really are. The community decides which deals are the best, so it's a club of deal finders sharing their finds."
