"Eversave Columbus" Launches Today, Offering Columbus-Area Residents Fantastic Deals From Local Merchants and Opportunities to Support Local Charities

Eversave Columbus Members Receive $5 Reward Towards Their 1st Purchase When They Sign Up for Eversave's Daily Deals From Local Restaurants, Sporting Events, Outdoor Activities and More

WAKEFIELD, MA--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) -  Prospectiv, owner of the second-biggest couponing website in America, Eversave.com, today announced the launch of Eversave Columbus, a website offering local daily deals called "Saves" to residents in the Columbus, OH area and beyond. The Saves will feature exciting things to do in and around the city including concerts, restaurants, spas, entertainment and more. All of the Saves will be offered at a discount between 50-90 percent. Upon sign-up, Columbus-area residents will receive $5 in Save rewards that can be used toward their first Save purchase. For every new buyer that is referred, receive an extra $20!

Eversave is committed to giving back to the community, which is a unique feature in comparison to similar services. Local charities joining Eversave's Charity Partnership Program conduct online fundraisers targeted to the area residents they serve. Eversave's program brings new business to local merchants, generates needed funds for organizations and gives consumers the opportunity to save while giving back to their community. Eversave partners with many types of nonprofits supporting a variety of causes, including school foundations, disease prevention, youth programs, affordable housing and more.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Northern Ohio (http://www.cff.org/Chapters/NorthernOH) will be the first charity to benefit during Eversave Columbus' launch week. The Santa Maria Ship & Museum, the world's most authentic museum-quality replica of Christopher Columbus' flagship, will be donating a portion of its "Save" proceeds to CFF Northern Ohio. "We're thrilled at the opportunity to support an important organization like the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation while also bringing more local residents and visitors to Central Ohio's only floating history museum," said Linda Ketcham, Executive Director. "You can't beat paying only $8 for 4 admissions and knowing that a portion of your purchase will go toward helping others in need."

Eversave encourages members to 'Share the Save,' with friends and family via email, Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets. A recent poll conducted on Eversave.com found 71 percent of people who purchased deals from consumer-based websites had shared the deal with others. The poll also found that 88 percent of those polled are more likely to share a deal virally if there is a charitable component.

Mykonos Taverna, a Greek restaurant in Gahanna, is also among the first to be featured on Eversave Columbus. "We're excited to be offering a great deal with Eversave -- pay $15 and get $30 worth of our authentic Greek cuisine," said Christos Poulias, President of Mykonos Taverna. "Our daily deal with Eversave will help us reach tons of people right in our area who will get the chance to try our food and come back for more."

Eversave doesn't want this to be just a one-time deal for consumers to save -- the aim is to help local businesses build long-term customer relationships. Following a purchase, merchants can choose to send future emails to their new customers using Eversave's email platform -- from promotions and specials to new menu items -- all designed to stay top-of-mind with their customers.

Columbus area residents can also experience the unique and refreshing world of Allvera Body Wrap & Wellness Center in Hilliard. Allvera owners Kenya Ayers and Trina Chambers are seeing tremendous success with customers using body wraps and foot detox to assist in reaching their health and wellness goals. "With Eversave, we have the opportunity to not only bring in new customers but also the chance to reconnect with them for future deals and offers on spa treatments and wellness packages."

"Columbus has so much to offer with great restaurants, unique shops, sporting events and top-notch entertainment," said Jere Doyle, President and CEO of Prospectiv. "Eversave is excited to introduce a new way for Columbus-area residents to try something at a discounted price that they may not have thought to check out before. And local merchants benefit by bringing in new customers that they can welcome back with additional deals and offers. It's a win-win for everyone."
