CoolSavings Launches Coupon Program For Prodigy

Chicago-based CoolSavings.com, Inc., a provider of targeted Internet sales promotion services, said Prodigy has signed on to make its clippable coupon service available to Prodigy Internet members.

The service will allow Prodigy Internet subscribers to take advantage of offers from national retailers, restaurants, travel companies and online retailers. Prodigy Internet subscribers can print the coupons and access other money-saving offers right from their own computers via the CoolSavings/Prodigy Internet co- branded Web site. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.

"CoolSavings offers Prodigy Internet subscribers the opportunity to save hundreds of dollars every month, potentially offsetting the cost of Prodigy's standard Internet connection fee," said Matt Moog, vice president of sales and marketing for CoolSavings.com.

CoolSavings uses patented technology that permits advertisers to precisely target offers by a range of household characteristics and shopping habits, while still preserving members' privacy. Users' printers can produce CoolSavings coupons with high-quality graphics and bar codes that cashiers can scan at the register.
