SaleWhale Launches to Help Canadians Find the Best Deals on their Favourite Products

New web based service ushers in an era of smart grocery shopping for digital age

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Nov. 7, 2013) - In a world of many deals, it's difficult to find out whether what we need is on sale, and where to buy it.

New online platform,, gives Canadian shoppers added value intelligence on the many discounts and deals offered by retailers across the country. It lets consumers know when and where the products they buy are on sale.

"We understand, in this uncertain economy, people want to save money where they can. At the same time, they're busier than ever. Going through dozens of flyers and circulars each week is a time consuming process and not an option for most people. We aggregate flyers from major retailers every week and transfer the data online. Using geolocation technology, we alert consumers about deals on specific products, within a designated proximity," said Chris Emergui, President of SaleWhale.
