Take Two! The Find&Save Experience Just Got More Personal & Social

This week we unveiled our new Find&Save® local discovery shopping platform at the Newspaper Association of America (NAA) mediaXchange Conference in Orlando. This represents the culmination of many months of GSD or Get Sh*t Done. The Wanderful Media team consistently delivers with a sooner is better than better attitude and I couldn’t be more proud…or excited of what we built.

539727_273220636146574_655896730_nWe’ve taken our previous “Find n Save” product and revamped the design from the bottom up – adding new features and tools to enhance the shopper experience. Local shoppers now have at their fingertips the ability to:

  • Discover sales, all in one place – Find&Save is a comprehensive collection of great local sales.
  • Collect sale items of interest – Easily create lists of sale items to be saved, sent to friends, or shared with the Find&Save community.
  • Never miss a sale – Get timely alerts and reminders about expiring sales
  • Share, follow, and participate – Share sale items and lists across Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and email. Also follow favorite retailers, shopping categories and user-created lists, as well as tastemakers within the shopping community.

Ben Smith - NAA (2013)Our official press release went out on Monday. If you’d like to read a bit more about our announcement, visit our website for the full press release. Also, more great press has been circulating this week. Here’s what is being said about our new Find&Save:

No more dirty fingers for consumers, who can throw away print circulars and browse sales on their tablets, phones or desktops thanks to Find&Save. The relaunched product, previously a collection of digital circulars, has been redesigned as an online community replete with social-media type tools. – ClickZ

Wanderful Media has reinvented Find&Save through social/local/mobile, or SoLoMo, technologies and today debuts a new mobile site and web site, and soon will launch iPhone and iPad apps. – Internet Retailer

While creating shopping lists and following lists sounds a lot like what you can do on Pinterest, the difference is that Wanderful’s Find&Save service is for the frugal shopper, which cuts across many demographics. Everyone wants to save money. – VatorNews

Indeed, with the right user experience there’s enormous potential for Find&Save – especially if social is done well and the company can get the PC-app integration right. – Screenwerk

I appreciate the industry for providing us with the opportunity to work on this problem – it’s exciting. We’re honored that you trust us to help reinvent this part of the business. Start browsing the newly re-imagined Find&Save in your area; I am certain you will find a product or two that is worth sharing with friends or adding to a list.
