DealPop Expands Social Buying Website to Six New Cities in San Francisco's South Bay

Site Offers up to 70 Percent off on the Best Places to Eat, Shop and Have Fun

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2011) - WhitePages (www.whitepages.com), the largest and most trusted online directory, today announced the addition of Fremont, Newark, Milpitas, San Jose, Campbell and Santa Clara to its South Bay social buying service DealPop (www.dealpop.com). DealPop features fantastic savings of up to 70 percent off of the best places to eat, drink and have fun in San Francisco's South Bay area. The expansion of the new site kicks off with deals over the next month from Athena Grill in Santa Clara ($10 for $20 worth of food and drink), Thai House Restaurant in Redwood City ($18 for $30 worth of food and soft drinks) and Massage Technology in San Jose ($50 for a $100 90 minute massage).

Similar to social buying sites like Groupon and Living Social, DealPop makes it easy to share time sensitive deals in San Francisco's South Bay Area with friends and family. However, with DealPop everyone gets a deal because there is not a minimum number of people who need to purchase before the deal goes through. In addition, unlike Groupon and Living Social, where deals typically last 24-72 hours, DealPop deals are available for an average of 3 to 7 days and sometimes even longer. On select offers, DealPop also allows for instant redemption, which means people can print and use the voucher immediately.

DealPop has also created a point system that allows members to earn points on future purchases when they share a deal with someone via Facebook, Twitter and/or email who then signs up and purchases. DealPop also offers a national social buying site called DealPop USA, which offers nationwide deals on top brands that can be purchased and enjoyed by anyone, anywhere in the US.

"We're excited to expand DealPop's footprint into San Francisco's South Bay and look forward to continuing to help people discover everything from the hottest new joints in town to classic standbys," said Travis Pearl, product manager for DealPop. "Social buying is the perfect way for people to try these places without having to pay full price, a combination that they won't want to pass up."

As a WhitePages subsidiary, DealPop analyzes more than 100 million local and business searches conducted monthly by 20 million people per month at WhitePages.com and 411.com to determine the most popular places to eat, shop, and have fun. This insight, combined with knowledge from insiders, will allow DealPop to quickly identify relevant merchants and provide the hottest deals for consumers in San Francisco's South Bay area.

With the addition of the six new cities, DealPop South Bay now offers deals in Atherton, Belmont, Campbell, Cupertino, East Palo Alto, Foster City, Fremont, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Menlo Park, Milpitas, Mountain View, Newark, Palo Alto, Redwood City, Redwood Shores, San Carlos, San Jose, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, and Woodside. South Bay residents can sign up for DealPop at www.dealpop.com and can visit DealPop South Bay's Facebook page or Twitter account to provide suggestions of where they'd love to get a deal.
