ECHO readers can grab bargains and save more than 50 per cent on meals, breaks and shopping with a new service launched today.
The Echo’s DealMonster scheme will offer subscribers a special deal every day knocking pounds of products and services in Wearside.
From today readers can register for free to receive daily emails on which bargains are available.
To mark the launch, new subscribers have the chance to win an iPad 2 for £399 or spa experience worth £100 in a prize-draw.
Jason Rewse-Davies, managing director of DealMonster, said: “Times may be tough but people still want to have fun and DealMonster brings you all the very best that your area has to offer – at a fraction of the normal price.”
Discounts will be available on meals out, experiences, events, hotel accommodation and shopping in the Wearside area.
Subscribers can pick which deals they are interested in and buy vouchers online to redeem against the products and services.
Users then normally have six months to redeem them against the products or services offered in the deal, though some offers have different terms and conditions.
Mr Rewse-Davies said: “The great advantage of DealMonster is that our deals are with businesses and organisations you are probably already familiar with, so you’re getting genuine discounts on brands and products from companies you trust.”
