"All Things Local" Site Reaches 500,000 Deals and Coupons

San Jose, Aug. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- To the delight of deal hunters everywhere, hyperlocal site, Buckaroo.com, expanded its deal and product offerings this month with the addition of a new "coupons" category on its homepage. Subscribers to the site have access to over 500,000 deals, coupons and discount offerings. The postings belong to several hundred local and online merchants across North America.

"The growth in deals has been the latest significant shift for Buckaroo, and has brought with it better content, unique information and a greater interest among users," commented Alan Fisher, Co-Founder and Chairman of Buckaroo's parent company Iron Speed, Inc. "Buckaroo now has a competitive advantage over other e-retailers due the scope of choice and affordability."

Users can find familiar and unique retailers selling everything from square toilet seats and lingerie to hair wigs and teeth whitening sets. Buckaroo selects the deals based on level of originality and amount of subscriber interest.

"After discovering unique retailers such as "So Mexican" and "Life is Crap", we found their content to be eye-catching, innovative, or just plain funny," said Fisher. "Anyone can easily find discounts from larger department stores and suppliers, but we believe the smaller merchants bring additional interest and character to Buckaroo.

Since Buckaroo's original design as a marketing tool for small businesses, the local hub has morphed into a provider of community news, jobs and other updates. Via Buckaroo's "What's Hot" e-newsletter, subscribers can view daily deals among local news for any community.
