BuyWithMe Makes a Splash in Austin Making It Easy for Shoppers to Snag Exclusive Local Deals

Local Hotspot Jo's Coffee First to Offer Select Deals and Capitalize on Opportunity to Attract New Customers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 23, 2010) -  BuyWithMe, the premier community-buying website that connects shoppers with the best deals and offers from leading local businesses, today announced its official launch in Austin, Texas. Starting today, Austin locals can sign-up for BuyWithMe daily deals at and experience a new way to shop smart and save with friends while discovering unique Austin businesses. Hip coffee shack, Jo's Coffee, is first to capitalize on BuyWithMe's presence and is offering a 50 percent discount on purchases of $10 or more today through Wednesday, September 29.

"We're excited to team up with BuyWithMe to offer savvy Austin shoppers another reason to visit Jo's Coffee, either for the first time or to encourage them to come back if they haven't visited us in a while," said Andy Proctor, Operations Manager, Jo's Coffee. "Starting today, BuyWithMe shoppers can get half off any purchase of $10 or more, and that offer is available for the next seven days. BuyWithMe is helping us reach people looking for the best of what Austin has to offer."

BuyWithMe connects smart shoppers with the best deals on restaurants, spas, salons, fitness centers and activities. Unlike other group-buying sites, BuyWithMe gives shoppers seven days to make a purchase decision. BuyWithMe also works closely with all of its business partners to ensure each receives an ideal number of customers for each offer, avoiding any possibility of an overwhelming or unmanageable coupon clipper-crazed situation.

"True to the city's motto, Austin locals are passionate about their city and keeping it weird and vibrant," said Cheryl Rosner, CEO, BuyWithMe. "We work hard to take care of our members and stimulate economies by bringing new customers to local businesses. An Austin presence was top priority for us and we look forward to partnering with the very best businesses in the area to continuously bring shoppers great deals and experiences."
