DealPop's Consumer Social Media Buying Service Expands Into Los Angeles Market This Week and Soon, Nationwide

by Janis Brett Elspas

For some time now DealPop, which competes with similar deal saving social buying sites such as GroupOn and LivingSocial, has been operating quietly, but quite successfully in their own backyard in the Seattle market.

One More Reason Why I Love L.A.
The picture at left is of my son's arrival home from Emerald Bay Summer Boy Scout Camp on Catalina Island off the coast of California. I took this pic of the Catalina Express boat as it passed under the Vincent Thomas Bridge on its way into the dock in San Pedro, just south of Los Angeles proper.

The inside scoop is that WhitePages, the largest online directory, just announced this week the DealPop Los Angeles launch of its social buying service where you can save up to 70% off on eating, drinking, shopping, and other fun stuff in L.A. Soon after, they expect to expand still further to the San Francisco Bay Area and then nationwide.  Follow MommyBlogExpert on Twitter and subscribe to this blog to be the first to know when DealPop makes its next big move.

I just signed up for DealPop so I don't miss any of the deals I'm told that are coming up soon for date nights with my husband and special "mom time" opportunities for me, like spa, yoga, and more.  The best news is that DealPop Los Angeles will have fun things for not only for us moms and dads, but also great savings on activities for kids and families in the area where I live.  I wouldn't miss their deal alerts for anything.  It's free to subscribe, so you might want to subscribe for free just like I have to get on their list.   They also have a point system where you can earn points for using Twitter, Facebook, and/or email to spread the word about current DealPop offerings when those you refer make a purchase from them.

WIN A FREE iPad From DealPop
To celebrate the Los Angeles launch, DealPop is running a sweepstakes offering a free iPad to the first member to compile 1000 DealPop points. To be considered, all people have to do is invite 20 friends who then make a purchase.  Read more about the iPad GIVEAWAY on DealPop's new blog.

DealPop L.A. really has some great deals for example, today they announced you can get $15 of Seventeenth Street Bakery (Santa Monica) products for just $7.  Deals coming up for the rest of this week and next are listed below.  You can find out more about how DealPop works here.
