Big local savings made possible by DealSaver

August 28, 2011 

If you’ve been looking for that rare opportunity to save money and support your local business community at the same time, look no further than the Bradenton Herald’s new DealSaver program.

Launching Monday, DealSaver offers discounts of at least 50 percent -- and sometimes up to 90 percent -- on services and products from local businesses. Different deals that last up to four days apiece will be offered each week.

Kim Woods, the Herald’s vice president of advertising, said the new program is a way for the paper to address its community’s growing need and desire for savings and local support.

“Society is becoming very deal-conscious, and very price-conscious,” Woods said. “This is a way that the Herald can create a marketplace our local residents can come to for the best deals and savings in town.”

Here’s how the program works:

n Interested residents sign up for the program by going to

n Every week they’ll receive an email alert about the week’s special offers.

n To partake in a deal, subscribers just need to click on it, purchase it, print out the voucher provided, and take it with them to the business they want to frequent.

DealSaver kicks off this week with offerings from The Chiles Group of restaurants, the Bradenton Marauders and the Isis Day Spa.

The Chiles Group, which includes the Sand Bar, Beach House and Mar Vista, will offer a $25 gift certificate for just $12. The Marauders are offering a two-ticket pack that includes $20 in Buc Bucks to be used on the Marauders’ upcoming fan appreciation night. Isis’ offer is a $60 manicure/pedicure for just $30.

Businesses interested in participating in the Herald DealSaver program can do so by calling Woods at (941) 748-0411, ext. 5820.
