Zeer Launches "Frugal Shoppers" Community to Help Consumers Save Money

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2008) - In these tough economic times, consumers are looking for ways to save money without sacrificing quality. Food is a necessity for every family, but where can you find information on saving money on the monthly grocery bill without sacrificing nutrition and taste? Beginning today, consumers can log onto Zeer (www.zeer.com), and join the newly launched "Frugal Shoppers" community to find out more about foods that match their budget, taste and nutritional needs from like-minded shoppers.

Do you wonder how to find less expensive grocery items without sacrificing quality or taste? You are not alone: using the Frugal Shopper Community at Zeer you can search from more than 110,000 food and beverage products and learn first-hand about food product options from other like-minded consumers. For example consumers can receive advice from other shoppers on private label products and cooking techniques that help them get more from less. In addition to unbiased product reviews and recommendations, consumers will find photos, descriptions and full nutritional information for the products. And with Zeer's shopping list functionality, consumers can easily manage new additions to their grocery lists.

"During these unsure economic times, food shoppers are looking for ways to watch their wallets when they are shopping, without sacrificing quality," said Michael Putnam, CEO and founder of Zeer. "We are pleased to help people find more while spending less with the launch of our 'Frugal Shoppers' Community."

In addition to "Frugal Shoppers," Zeer has 32 carefully targeted communities of interest, from peanut allergies, green living, low-fat diets and low-carb diets, to health conditions like diabetes and healthy hearts, to product passions like beer, wine, and pet products.
