Click-n-Shout Launches New Online Company in Cleveland

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - February 1, 2010) - Click-n-Shout, a new-collective buying Web site, launched its national firm today in Cleveland. To celebrate, it is hosting a fundraising competition among five local charities to see which can encourage the most participants to join the Cleveland Clique on Click-n-Shout.

Click-n-Shout offers location-specific discounts for products and services. The site e-mails its customers one deal per day in the locations of their choice. A minimum number of people must sign up for the deal in order to make it active. Click-n-Shout uses the power of a group to make the prices drop at restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, spas and sports events.

The charities participating in the kick-off competition include: ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland, The Littlest Heroes, PlayhouseSquare and Diabetes Association of Greater Cleveland.

"By using the site and spreading the word, the charities are going to get all revenue generated on a specific day to help each of their causes," said Click-n-Shout CEO and founder Rob Scher.

In addition to receiving one day's revenues, the charity that drives the most registrations will receive a grand prize, a week's worth of additional revenue from Click-n-Shout.

Today, Feb. 1, for one day only, Click-n-Shout will offer a special discount to its members on a one-hour personal training session at the Painesville Slim&Fit Personal Weight Loss and Fitness center. Designed by celebrity trainer Jaime Brenkus, creator of the 8-Minute Abs workout, the session is valued at $50, but will be available on Click-n-Shout for only $25 to benefit the Diabetes Association of Greater Cleveland.

On Tuesday, discount coupons to I-X Indoor Amusement Park will be on the site to promote the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland. On Wednesday and Thursday, two restaurants, 56 West and Sushi on the Roll, will donate food certificates to benefit The Littlest Heroes and PlayhouseSquare, respectively. Rounding off the week, Resistance Wear, an athletic apparel company recently featured on the CBS Early Show, is offering $40 gift certificates for $10 to benefit ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The site suggests members of the Cleveland Clique share The Daily Clique using Facebook, Twitter and e-mail. When customers refer friends, they get $10 toward a purchase in the future if that friend makes a purchase. For more, visit http://clicknshout.com/.
