Media corporations band together on daily deals site ‘Find n Save’

Adweek | Hearst
Eight media companies — Advance Digital, A. H. Belo, Cox Media Group, Gannett, Hearst, MediaNews, McClatchy, and The Washington Post Co. — are behind Find n Save. The site enables consumers in 19 of the top 50 markets (expected to grow to 40 of 50 in the next month) to purchase Groupon-like daily deals, print coupons and search local sales. “Newspapers have been racing to catch up for a while with the likes of Groupon and its copycats, including tech giants like Google, Amazon, and Yahoo, which have been slapping deal-finder services on their websites,” Lucia Moses writes. McClatchy’s Chris Hendricks says the company has been using the service since last year. Christopher Tippie, acting CEO of Find n Save, tells paidContent’s David Kaplan that the site is a “shopping portal,” not simply a daily deals site. || Related: Groupon Offers Opportunities and Threats for Newspaper Advertising (Poynter.org)
