Savings Experts From Across the Country Form Nationwide Movement to Help Americans Save One Class and Community at a Time

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 5, 2012) -, the leading online source for coupons, deals and expert shopping tips, today announced that it is bringing its popular Savings Nation workshops to more than 25 additional communities across the country this summer. The workshops, taught by DealPros, help people become healthy consumers by informing them on how to develop smart spending behaviors and end wasteful ones.

By partnering with recognized money-saving experts in each community, is taking its efforts to save people money offline and into local communities by teaching people, one city at a time, that saving money doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming. The workshops this summer will focus on how to slash spending at the grocery store, an area of the family budget Americans have the most opportunity to positively impact their discretionary spending. From just one class, people learn healthy consumer habits such as meal planning, grocery sale cycles and shopping strategies that can result in up to 50 percent savings on grocery bills.

"With the help of the smart and savvy DealPros, we're excited to see the Savings Nation movement and community take off around the country," said Loren Bendele, CEO and co-founder of "The workshops are all about realistic ways to save at the register. We don't want people to sacrifice quality of life. Instead it's about learning ways to spend less on everyday purchases so you can spend more on the things you care about."

In March, announced that it would host workshops in four markets -- Atlanta, Cincinnati, Orlando, and San Antonio. Since then, consumers and DealPros have requested Savings Nation come to more communities. Workshops have now been hosted in more than 30 communities, from Denver, CO to Philadelphia, PA, with as many as 250 attendees at a single workshop. The workshop-style classes are open to the public and deliver the tips, tricks and strategies for the average family of four to save up to $5,000 in a year.

"We look forward to helping improve peoples' financial fitness as more Savings Nation workshops take place over the course of the year," said Bendele. " is proud to be part of a movement formed by individuals who want to help others by sharing how they transformed their spending habits."
