Empowered Products Announces Broadest Advertising Campaign in Company History for Valentine's Day

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Empowered Products, Inc. (OTC:EMPO), a leader in sexual wellness through its award-winning PINK® and Gun Oil® personal lubricant brands, announced its broadest consumer advertising campaign to-date in time for Valentine's Day to support more than 24,000 U.S. retail locations carrying its products.

The campaign to more than 22.5 million households commenced the week of January 25 with publication of $3 and $4 off manufacturer's coupons in SmartSource® free-standing insert (FSI) circulars in the Sunday and weekly neighborhood editions of newspapers serving New York City metro, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington, DC, Detroit, Cincinnati, Chicago, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Dallas/Fort Worth metro, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Seattle, Los Angeles, Portland, Ore., Boston, and Providence, Rhode Island.

The goal of the campaign is to encourage consumers to visit their favorite Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, Rite Aid, Kroger, Fred Meyer, Roundy's and HEB stores to redeem the coupons for PINK and Gun Oil products for the following discounts:

  • $3.00 off 1.7 oz bottles of PINK Silicone and PINK Water and 2.0 oz bottles of Gun Oil Silicone and Gun Oil H2O
  • $4.00 off 3.3 oz bottles of PINK Silicone and PINK Water and 4.0 oz bottles of Gun Oil Silicone and Gun Oil H2O

The extensive reach of the campaign reflects the company's national expansion into the largest U.S. grocery and pharmacy chains including Walgreens and Walgreens.com, drugstore.com, CVS, Rite Aid, Kroger, Fred Meyer, Walmart, Roundy's, HEB, and Target.com.

"As our reach into mass market retail pharmacy and grocery chains has expanded, so have our marketing and promotional programs to support the availability of our award-winning products in these locations," said Scott Fraser, president and CEO of Empowered Products. "The timing of this promotion just as we enter the Valentine's Day buying season should position us as a highly-desirable and value-based purchase choice."
