SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DealPulp.com, the only daily deal site dedicated to providing online shoppers with national discounts on their favorite websites, today celebrates two months of strong growth with the introduction of its new gift card. Since January 2011, DealPulp.com’s members have been “gifting” specific daily deals to friends and family. With the new gift card feature, members are now able to purchase an online gift card to be applied to any deal offered through DealPulp.com -- making it easier than ever for members to share online, nationwide discounts.
“Localized daily deal sites have been welcomed with open arms by consumers and are driving foot traffic to neighborhood businesses, but they are falling short of their potential,” said Kiha Lee, CEO and founder of DealPulp.com. “At DealPulp.com, we offer deals that are available nationwide and exclusively redeemable online. This means that online shoppers in every city across the United States, including those who don’t have daily deals in their area, now have access to exclusive deals from online retail sites and online stores for brick and mortar merchants. Not only that, with the new gift card feature, they can more easily share these deals with their friends and family.”
According to some predictions, the e-commerce sector is expected to reach almost $300 billion by 2015. DealPulp.com is doing its part to turn bargain hunters’ attention to online shopping by offering one major deal a day from a select online retailer. Having grown to nearly 85,000 members since its launch, DealPulp.com has already saved online shoppers nearly $400,000 using this model. Retailers have sold hundreds of deals at discounts exceeding 50 percent off -- including $8 for $20 (and free shipping) to spend on wholesale items from DollarDays.com. Today’s new gift card feature will enable members to “gift” DealPulp.com credit to friends and family so that they can find a deal that is perfect for them. Discounts usually range from between 50 and 90 percent off, and online retailers are offering deals on everything from designer clothing and photo printing to custom stationary and unique handcrafted items, and much more.
“Clothes don't grow, but kids do. It's a pain-point for every parent,” said Karen Fein, director of marketing and public relations at thredUP, a swapping platform that connects moms across the country online and helps them exchange boxes of gently used kids clothing. “Since swapping online is a relatively new concept, we’ve looked for ways to expose thredUP to the right audience while helping new members get over the first-time-swap hurdle. That’s why we were thrilled to learn of DealPulp.com’s national scope and dedication to reaching online shoppers. Our teams worked together to construct a competitive offer that would provide targeted exposure and get new members swapping on day one. On the day of the deal, thredUP sold 8,400 vouchers for a box of gently worn children’s clothes for $6, and enjoyed approximately 15,000 new members in one week.”
