Here’s an interesting pairing: Groupon (the site that offers local deals based on a group’s level of interest in, say, pole dancing classes or vegan cupcakes) has teamed up with The McClatchy Company to provide special deals for readers in 28 markets. McClatchy owns myriad papers across the U.S, like The Miami Herald and The Sacramento Bee. Sacramento and Kansas City will be the first two locations to try out Groupon’s cash-saving wonderfulness.
Visitors to McClatchy websites will see exclusive Groupon deals not available on Groupon.com. Groupon will broker each deal with its customary quality, editorial style and high standards of service. Daily Groupon deals will launch first in the Sacramento and Kansas City regions with other sites following over the next few months.
