New Savings Portal Points Shoppers to Bargains

SavingsYellowPages.com has launched as a savings portal to blend community, content and commerce.

SYP is designed to be the savings starting point for Internet users who want guidance in finding and evaluating the thousands of outstanding discounts, coupons, rebates and special offers available to them on the Web.

Members will also be advised of new offerings through customized e-mail alerts catering to their individual interests and sent by advertisers seeking targeted marketing opportunities.

SavingsYellowPages features a scrolling Savings Newswire where the latest bargains are announced. Other offers are listed on sections devoted to Limited Time Offers, Discounts, Free Deals, Rebates and Coupons.

Top deals are gathered from many sources, including 100 plus retail Web affiliates, the company said.

Traditional offerings are included as well, such as coupons offered by 9,500 local supermarkets, and special deals from over 30,000 local vendors.

SYP's online Savings University offers timely and interesting articles on savings and consumer issues. This week's reading list: "Free PC's-Who Offers Them and How To Get Them" and "The Scoop on Being Paid to Surf."

The company was founded by Laurence Paskowitz. "Advertisers and consumers have a strong desire to find each other. This site makes that process both easy and fun," he said.
