LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Iconic television actress Melissa Joan Hart accepts a new role as Co-Owner of location-based mobile coupon app, Yowza!!, alongside Heroes star Greg Grunberg and actor Wayne Brady. The announcement comes just in time to coincide with this year's Small Business Saturday taking place on November 24, 2012. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to strengthening the community by supporting local, independently owned small businesses.
The free to download iPhone & Android app works by displaying mobile coupons to be redeemed at relevant restaurants and retailers in the immediate area. Hart, a mother of three, loved Yowza!!'s green, high-tech approach to couponing so much she decided to sign on as partner, beginning November 20, 2012.
Yowza!! is changing the way consumers and businesses think about coupons. Shoppers no longer have to waste time (and resources) clipping and driving out of the way in order to get a deal. Conversely, businesses using Yowza!! are receiving better return on investment, as they are now actually advertising to relevant consumers in their area. Given the current economic times, it was this symbiotic relationship between consumer and business that attracted Hart to Yowza!!.
"As a mom in charge of the household shopping and a small business owner, I immediately saw the value of what Greg was doing with Yowza!!," says Hart. "After he showed me the app and what Yowza!! could do, I knew I had to be a part of it. And the fact that over a million people are already using it for free everyday, how could I not jump onboard."
Melissa Joan Hart is most well-known for her roles as Clarissa on Nickelodeon's "Clarissa Explains it All" and Sabrina on ABC's "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." Currently, Hart finds continued success, starring in the People's Choice Award nominated television series "Melissa and Joey," which will air its third season on ABC Family in spring 2013.
"Yowza!! is something I am super passionate about. I know firsthand how it can help increase store sales and also how convenient and easy it is to use for folks looking to save money," says Yowza!! Founder and actor Greg Grunberg. "Because of this, I have been incredibly selective when it comes to new partners. I didn't want to team with any person who would not truly understand the value of Yowza!!. However, when I showed the app to Melissa, I knew she got it. This is a partner who won't hesitate to tell every shopper and business owner in the country how lucrative the app can be."
With over a million users and coupons available for over 50,000 retail locations in the United States, Yowza!! is already the best couponing app in the country, and given its all-star lineup of owners, it is no wonder the breakthrough app is making major headlines.
