LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — PriceGrabber®, a part of Experian®, is making it easier and more convenient for consumers to find local deals in their area with DealGrabber, a new mobile application specifically dedicated to the local deals category, deals.pricegrabber.com. DealGrabber is available free of charge in the Apple® iTunes® store and is an excellent way for consumers to browse thousands of deals in their area from a variety of local deal Websites, including Groupon®, LivingSocial®, Restaurant.com®, Eversave®, Gilt City(TM) and many more.

Shoppers also can get their friends in on the fun and share their favorite deals on Facebook®.
