LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 29, 2009) - It's official -- Saving money is America's new favorite pastime. Online coupons, coupon codes and digital discounts are everywhere. According to Hitwise, searches for "online coupon" increased 172% between July 2008 and 2009. That is massive growth, and it is being driven by an emerging group of smart, savvy consumers we like to call DealPros™.

Today Savings.com is launching a nationwide campaign to expand its expert community and recruit more top quality DealPros™. Appointed DealPros™ will have editorial access to one of the top coupon communities online and can also win an all-expense paid trip to San Francisco, where they'll have the opportunity to meet shopping experts.

Online coupon community Savings.com is the Web's top destination for the best and brightest DealPros™. These savings experts find the best deals, share their favorite coupons and spread their knowledge and expertise with the world.

Think of it as an American Idol for thrifty shoppers, but with a much better chance of winning.
