Consumer Reaction to BOGOPOD in Ventura County, Calif. Spurs Growth Opportunities in Other Parts of the Country; BOGOPOD Now Serving Consumers in Portland, Ore. and San Fernando Valley, Calif.

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA--(Marketwire - September 1, 2009) - Since launching late last year, BOGOPOD™ has seen visitors using its email alerts and Web site for consumer savings increase by more than 1,000 percent, attracting tens of thousands of visits each month. The free email and online service provides consumers in Ventura County with hundreds of promotions and offers at their favorite local businesses, including exclusive savings found only through BOGOPOD.com. As a result of growing consumer interest, more than 35,000 special offers have been printed for businesses in the local Ventura County area and BOGOPOD recently expanded into San Fernando Valley, Calif. and Portland, Ore.

In April 2009, BOGOPOD launched in the Portland market in partnership with Portland Monthly, the city's largest magazine. Since that time, more than 50 businesses have added their offers to the local Portland BOGOPOD service, and consumers have printed over 8,000 special offers.

"As consumers have become increasingly more cautious with how they spend their money, we have seen tremendous growth in our bi-weekly email alerts of special offers for consumers; and traffic to our site has similarly increased," said Adam Leff, CEO of Reach Pros, Inc., the owner and operator of BOGOPOD. "BOGOPOD has become a must-visit online destination for people before they head out to eat or shop. The fact that consumers can open an email or go to BOGOPOD.com to find a special offer to save money at their favorite local restaurant, spa or golf course has given BOGOPOD a lot of credibility. And it has provided consumers with reasons to continually tune into our emails and Web site."

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 Ventura County, San Fernando Valley or Portland can receive the free offers by registering online at 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.

Leff added, "Since we launched BOGOPOD in Ventura County, Portland, and now San Fernando Valley, we have received numerous inquiries from potential partners across the country about bringing BOGOPOD to their communities. We anticipate continued growth through these opportunities. The BOGOPOD business model and technology has proven to be a great way for local businesses and consumers to connect in a fast, convenient and environmentally friendly way. We know it works well for both consumers and businesses."
