June 29, 2010 // Franchising.com // (Tampa, FL) — Now in a boon for online shoppers, Valpak and eDeals.com have partnered to enable printable, local coupons at eDeals.com, the premier online coupon and deal site offering consumers an unmatched combination of savings and value.
Shoppers and merchants love coupons -- Valpak products and services reach more than 45 million households — and according to a survey by the Promotion Marketing Association (PMA), "87% of shoppers said they'd be more likely to shop at a retailer that offered a coupon and 70% of respondents are "much more likely to purchase if they are offered a coupon".

Printing local Valpak coupons at eDeals.com is simple, easy and fast. Shoppers first click on the printable coupons tab at eDeals.com, which instantly recognizes the shopper's location and geographical range with a regional map outlining coupon opportunities in that area. Shoppers can then filter those results by distance to see what's available, or they can enter their address, city or ZIP code and click 'Search'. eDeals.com will then show the results, which can be filtered by the shopper by 'distance' and 'category'.
"We're glad to extend our partnership with eDeals," said Jim Buckley, director of new media at Valpak. "We want to be sure we make our coupons available to consumers where they look for values," he said.
Once they click the results, shoppers receive a 'coupon profile" in the form of a webpage which they can print or send to a friend — coupon profiles include the offer/deal, merchant address, and map, and as long as the coupon is valid can be printed as many times as the consumer likes.
"The Valpak-eDeals.com partnership reflects two companies with similar core principles and focus on creating value, savings and great shopping experiences for consumers. This is a huge win for consumers who now more than ever must find ways to shop smart but without sacrificing on quality of products and services. We also think this will be a major boon for local small businesses that rely on local coupons to drive traffic to their stores and shops," said Mike Palso, COO, eDeals.com.
