San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2010
DriverSide, provider of the ultimate website for car owners and the developer of the most comprehensive customer attraction and retention programs for dealers and mechanics, today announced a new coupon and discount service for car owners. The free program makes thousands of special offers available to visitors at www.driverside.com. Offers are tailored to the kinds of cars site users drive, the towns where they live, and the types of maintenance or servicing they need. Consumers can log on to search specifically for discounts or can encounter them around the website in conjunction with other searches and tasks.
“DriverSide’s mission has been to empower automotive consumers with the best available tools and information they need to save money and time managing their vehicles,” said Jad Dunning, DriverSide President and CEO. “We already give free expert advice on vehicles and offer car owners protection from overpaying on maintenance. Now we are helping them get the best deal on servicing their cars. It is one more big step in DriverSide’s obsessive quest to assist drivers with every aspect of vehicle ownership.”
Site visitors can build out an online garage and identify the kinds of repairs they need, viewing various offers available and saving those of interest. DriverSide emails reminders before saved coupons expire and relevant deals when servicing is due. Consumers can also browse through general coupons that are specific to their car make and location. DriverSide provides discounts and incentives from its national network of repair facilities as well as from partners. Repair shops sign up with DriverSide to deliver special deals to the growing audience of almost 2 million registered users at www.driverside.com. Coupons cover everything from mechanical repairs to routine servicing to car washes. For example, a DriverSide registered user could get an email alert about an upcoming tire rotation that links to a coupon at a local facility good for a free one.
“There are close to 200 million drivers in the US,” said DriverSide’s Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder Adam Jackson. “Until DriverSide, nobody helped them understand what’s fair to pay for a repair on their cars. Now we are telling them where to go for the best deals. This is so important because over time people pay more to own their cars than they did to purchase them. Saving our car owners money is just another way we are on the side of the driver.”
Consumers can access DriverSide coupons directly at www.driverside.com/coupons.
