Payson residents will soon have the chance to scoop up discounted services and bi-weekly deals when the Payson Roundup launches PaysonDealZ.com Tuesday, Nov. 15.
Similar to sites Groupon and Google Offers, which offer daily deals in major cities across the country, PaysonDealz will offer select deals at steep discounts.
The major difference is PaysonDealZ.com will focus on local businesses and services.
“Deal sites have become very popular both nationally and in the Valley,” said Roundup publisher John Naughton. “But there was nothing for Payson-area residents. And because the majority of residents can’t take advantage of the deals on national sites, PaysonDealz is filling that void.”
Every Tuesday and Friday, the same day the paper is printed, a new deal will appear on www.PaysonDealZ.com.
Ranging anywhere from a voucher to a retailer, restaurant or for beauty, automotive or travel services, deals will run the gambit. Most deals will offer a minimum of 50 percent off retail.
An example of a deal is a $40 restaurant voucher for $20.
“It is designed to give a discount to both the loyal customer and the new customer,” Naughton said.
For local businesses, it is a way to get customers in the door to try their product or service with the hope they come back again.
Most “dealz” will be for local establishments, but there will also be offers to regional attractions and retailers.
“Any of these deals will not be a direct competitor to local businesses,” Naughton said.
Customers can view “dealz” starting Nov. 15 and sign up for e-mail notifications when new offers are available. Because some offers are limited, residents should check often and check early before they sell out, he said.
When a customer decides to buy, they enter their credit card number through the secure site and are given a coupon code. Customers can use the voucher anytime before it expires.
