BOGOPOD Now Serving Consumers in Los Angeles Through Partnership With Los Angeles' Leading Alternative News Weekly

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA--(Marketwire - September 29, 2009) - Consumers in Los Angeles have a new way to save money at their favorite local businesses as BOGOPOD and LA Weekly today announced the launch of LAWeeklyDirect.com. The free service provides consumer access to exclusive savings and offers from area restaurants, service providers, health and beauty retailers and entertainment attractions by clicking on the "Click & Save" banner on LAWeekly.com or by visiting LAWeeklyDirect.com. Visitors to the sites can print the offers, as well as register to receive bi-weekly email alerts that contain the latest promotions and special offers for popular area businesses.

Los Angeles is the fourth market for BOGOPOD, which also serves consumers in Ventura County and San Fernando Valley, Calif., and is the second area launch with a media partner. BOGOPOD launched the Portland, Ore. market earlier this year with Portland Monthly, the city's largest magazine. LAWeeklyDirect.com launched with special offers from several of the area's popular businesses, including Amoeba Music, Marco's Trattoria & Pizzeria, Michael's Bar & Grill, Spa Luce, and The Winehouse.

"LA Weekly has been a trusted guide to the best of Los Angeles for decades," said Beth Sestanovich, LA Weekly's Group Publisher. "And now, with BOGOPOD, we are not only connecting our readers with great places, we are also helping them find great deals to save money!"

"Entering the Los Angeles market is truly a milestone for our young company, and we look forward to the potential that our partnership with LA Weekly has for our two organizations, as well as the benefits for consumers and local businesses," said Adam Leff, CEO of Reach Pros, Inc., owner and operator of BOGOPOD. "Los Angeles has a business community unlike any in the world. We are very excited to work with LA Weekly to connect more people with their favorite businesses so they can save money at the places they visit and on things they do every day."

BOGOPOD, which stands for Buy-One-Get-One-Plus-Other-Discounts, is a free service for consumers. A vast selection of special offers is combined into a single email that is sent to area residents and businesses every two weeks. People that live and work in Los Angeles can receive the free offers by registering online at LAWeeklyDirect.com, BOGOPOD.com, or at participating local businesses. In addition, consumers can follow BOGOPOD on Twitter, or become a friend or fan on MySpace and Facebook to receive BOGOPOD's special offer alerts. BOGOPOD has already provided consumers with more than 50,000 printed offers for savings at their favorite businesses.
