Reduce Municipal Costs, Improve Communications,
Protect Residents Data, Promote Local Orgs/Businesses!
We protect the municipality from being forced to disclose
residents Emails & Cell Text Data due to OPRA/FOIA Laws!
- We have notified the municipality that all departments can login and freely use our service 24/7, to enhance resident communications and safety and protect the municipality from forced disclosure of resident's email addresses and cell phone text data.
- By law the municipality is subjected to residential data disclosure laws (OPRA, FOIA, Sunshine) if the municipality gathered resident's data. Savings Sites has already collected about 90% of every home, opted-in email address/text-which is not sold! Because the municipality freely uses our data and our servers, but does not take possession of the data, this insulates the municipality from forced disclosure of resident's data.
- The municipality (police, fire, recycling, recreation, etc.) can target information based upon the interest profiles of residents. Example: Recreation can email parents of 5th and 6th grade, Boys, that are interested in Soccer.
- FREE online class/event registration. No transcription time and errors. All residents get equitable chance of registering with time date stamps as opposed to mailed in registrations.
- Accept online payments over secure server, from residents for categories such as: (real estate taxes, municipal fines, tickets, recreation classes, construction permits, water/sewer, etc.). Capture all information for each category for easy export to .csv file for accounting purposes. Complete details of the transaction can be captured by the municipality, including all identifier information (Lot, Block, account numbers, names, phones, emails, texts, postal address, etc., that only the municipality controls). The municipality will save all the time data entering information and eliminate transcription errors. Also, all payments will be time and date stamped to address any failures to meet deadlines. The total municipal cost is 1/2 of 1% on only the first $50,000 a month, then $0 cost above $50,000 revenue received--so max fee is $250 month. No monthly statement or any other fees.
- Calendar system enables municipal events to be posted and residents only see events that meet their "interests profile." Because local orgs and schools can also use the same events calendar, all parties' events are more apt to get seen. The filtered calendar events flow right to the resident's phones!
Quick and Easy Local Business Savings
Timely, Targeted Local Events
Short Notice Alert Program (SNAP)
Save money without cutting, collecting, collecting, organizing, coupons, or being bombarded with emails for offers you don't want and are out of your area.
Simply click the SNAP graphic in the header of each business Ad and set SNAP savings filters to meet your availability and discount required! You choose which businesses you want offers from.
You decide if you wish to filter your offers by days of the week and times of the day you are available to use the offers; and you decide the minimum discount that you require to get through your SNAP savings filters!
Businesses must meet all your "savings filters" for Savings Sites to email you their short notice offers, and you can even set different savings filters for each business! Example: You love Mike's restaurant, so you set it for 7 days, seated as late as 8:00pm, 20% minimum discount required. You like Joe's restaurant, too, but it's further away so you set it only for Saturdays, seated by 6:00pm, 35% minimum. Not just restaurants! Carpets need cleaning? Open your Short Notice Alert Program filters for carpet cleaners, and get huge discounts to fill their schedules. After your carpet gets cleaned, just turn off all emails from carpet cleaners!

- Peekaboo is unique "reverse blind automated auction" where everyone saves, and everyone can decide to become the big winner!
- Example: The cash certificate redemption value is $100. You can pay the auction starting price $70, but the current hidden price is even lower $30 and keeps going down until someone decides to stop the auction and declares themselves the winner! All consolation winners have the option of paying $70 for the $100.
- The current hidden price keeps going down when anyone bypasses! To see the current hidden price, just click the panda bear and you have 10 seconds to buy at $30 or bypass. People bypass in hopes of getting the cash certificate for even less!
- As the current hidden price keeps going down to $0.00, obviously someone will decide to stop the reverse auction declare themselves the big winner! Everyone else pays $70 for $100!
- Bidding and buying is automated. No need to manually bid. Either have fun trying to become the huge winner, or simply auto qualify to buy the non-expiring, $100 cash certificate for $70!

- You peek at the current hidden price using peeking credits. In the menu tabs dropdown see the many ways to get free peeking credits. You can also buy peeking credits from your favorite organizations in the Organization panel and we will refund the minimum credits needed to buy the cash certificate, so there really isn't any net cost.

- We even provide much better incentive for your customers to use this option, instead of their "rewards points credit cards." You would pay 3%-4%, if your customer paid by credit card. So, give your customers 2% of the sale in peekaboo auction peeking credits to increase future sales. You use the $6 to buy the credits at wholesale cost of only $0.15 per credit as opposed to people paying up to $0.50 per credit.
- Example: Customer pays you $300. The customer automatically receives 40 credits. (2% of $300= $6 your cost). $6/15 cents = 40 credits. That buyer would normally pay up to $20 retail for 40 credits. The buyer spent $300 and got $20 value. Many rewards points credit cards would make you spend several thousands to get $20 value. You get an increase in future sales all being paid for with money that would have went to 3%-4% credit card fees.
