Raise your hand if you’re guilty of keeping stacks of circulars in your kitchen, your glove box or stuffed away in a drawer somewhere. Now lower your hand, grab your tablet, mobile or pc and head over to the new Find&Save ® experience! You’ll notice a whole new look and feel from the bottom up – logo, colors, content layout, you name it!
The unveil happened Monday, April 15 on a bright, sun-shiny day in Orlando, FL at the 2013 NAA mediaXchange conference. Wanderful Media CEO Ben T. Smith, IV and EVP of Product and Design Dave Thomsen walked the audience through the all new Find&Save experience during a general session: The Reinvention of Local Discovery Shopping. A detailed presentation, coupled with some fun and catchy demo videos made for a visually appealing and informative session – the perfect breakdown of the new site.
Now what exactly does this new Find&Save do? I’ll give you a quick breakdown…
I myself rarely use circulars. I enjoy browsing content online or flipping through magazines, and the new Find&Save offers a digital version of those features, and more. When you first visit Find&Save you have the option of creating a profile (I suggest using the Facebook connect feature) – once your profile is created you’re ready to discover local sales in your area.
A welcoming homepage prominently displays your favorite retailers, shopping categories and trending community picks. From there you’re able to browse through those sections, or you can use the handy search bar if you’re looking for something more specific.
Find&Save now offers the ability to follow retailers, fellow shoppers and share items and lists – creating a social shopping community. As you explore the site you can collect items and store them in custom lists that are tied to your profile. Take your lists to go! They can be viewed on your mobile or tablet for when you head to the store to purchase your saved items. If you’d like to share your lists with your friends you can do so on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or email – you also have the ability to make your lists private if you’re looking for something, say a birthday gift.
Being a member of the community allows you the opportunity to browse the public lists of fellow shoppers and follow those that peak your interest. If you’re looking for content from only your favorite retailers or a shopping category, such as “Handbags,” you’re able to follow those specifically – a great way to keep track of the latest sales from your favorite places.
Another unique feature, that is sure to save the day down the road, is the ability to get timely alerts and reminders about expiring sales on items you love, so you never miss a sale again!
Here’s the full press release on all of the features and changes on the new Find&Save: New Find&Save helps local retailers bring shoppers into their store.
