Valpak Buys Savings.com & Savoo.com

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ Coupon-clippers, take note.

The company that owns and distributes Valpak coupons to millions of homes around the U.S. is acquiring one of the biggest online coupon websites.

Florida-based Cox Target Media told The Associated Press it is acquiring Savings.com and its U.K.-based sister site, Savoo.com.

Company executives say this is a merger between traditional and new media advertising.

They tout it as blending the best of both worlds and connecting businesses and customers with a new, integrated model.

Company officials say Savings.com and Savoo.co.uk will continue to operate independently.

But they will work with Valpak to share resources and use each others’ technology platforms.
