Find the Deals You Want with Rimbambo

Groupon, LivingSocial,—they’re all great, but how do you find the deal you want?

Rimbambo is an Idaho-based company that helps you find the deals you want–fast!  Rimbambo was founded by David Crossett, who noticed a flaw in the Deal-A-Day websites:  While the deals increased retailers’ web traffic, in many cases, they were actually losing money in the process.

With the belief that deals should increase profits as well as traffic, Crossett launched a website to combine the benefits of Deal-A-Day sites with the reality that consumers are searching for coupons that suit their particular needs.

On Rimbambo, deals are organized into three categories:

1.  Crazy Deals:  Typically 50% off or more and deals on big-ticket items

2.  Smart Deals:  Deals on products you use everyday

3.  Sales & Promos:  Directs customers to sales they might not have heard about

With Rimbambo, customers can see the “Featured Crazy Deal,” search for that one deal they’re looking for, or even browse deals by retailer or category.  Customers can even follow their favorite businesses, save deals for future use, and revisit them using Rimbambo’s iPhone or Android app.

And, the best deal of all?  Rimbambo is free to sign up. Come meet the Rimbambo team as they will be showcased at our Tech Cocktail Boise event this Wednesday.
