LivingSocial Goes Bananas For The Jungle

April 1, 2010

WASHINGTON, April 1 /PRNewswire/ — LivingSocial, the social commerce leader behind LivingSocial Deals and top Facebook applications Visual Bookshelf and Pick Your Five, today announced the launch of LivingSocial Deals for The Jungle, making the program live in 13 cities and 1 jungle. The popular group buying program saves people an average of 50-70% off at the hottest local restaurants, spas, fitness centers, bakeries, and primates. The first deal for The Jungle is 85% off a finger monkey.

“Finger monkeys are the hottest accessory for 2010, and LivingSocial is excited to feature them this month,” said Tim O’Shaughnessy CEO and co-founder. “I can speak from personal experience when I say a finger monkey changed my life. My finger monkey lifts my spirits after a long day and always knows just when to swing across the room to provide some good cheer – all while growing no larger than a normal sized digit. Bringing finger monkeys to LivingSocial members is a dream come true.”

The Jungle will feature a new Deal every month offering consumers a chance to take a walk on the wild side with something fun and unique. To get your own finger monkey, visit The Jungle.

LivingSocial’s group buying service has grown rapidly since its launch in August 2009, expanding from Washington, D.C., to New York City, Boston, Atlanta, Austin, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, the Twin Cities, Chicago, Raleigh Durham, Denver, San Diego and now the The Jungle with more cities rolling out in coming months. Also, with the first social savings iPhone application, LivingSocial users, or members of The Jungle, can get savings on-the-go and be alerted when new deals are available through push notifications and even redeem directly from their iPhone. LivingSocial users throughout the country have already saved millions of dollars, with tens-of-millions more on tap throughout 2010.
