Veebow to Offer Special Smartphone Promotions to Holiday Shoppers at Scottsdale Fashion Square

The Scottsdale Fashion Square and two-time Golden Globe® winning actress Valerie Bertinelli have teamed for a special holiday promotion from Veebow (www.veebow.com). Co-founded by Bertinelli’s husband Tom Vitale and Edward Loew, Veebow connects buyers with companies through national, regional and local special deals using a free application on smart phones or other mobile devices. Ms. Bertinelli will sign copies of her new cookbook “One Dish at a Time” and answer questions about Veebow during an appearance on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 2 pm on the Barneys New York wing event stage.

“Veebow currently has over 300 free deals in the Phoenix area alone,” said Veebow CEO Tom Vitale. “Through our free app on their iPhone or Android smartphone, consumers can save money shopping at some of their favorite Scottsdale Fashion Square retailers this holiday season. It’s simple - just download the app and start saving money. It never costs the public a dime to get a deal. There is no pre-purchase, group buying or printing of coupons.”

For style seekers, the over 240 retailers in Scottsdale Fashion Square continues to inspire breathless anticipation. From Neiman Marcus to Barneys New York, Nordstrom, Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Cartier and Bottega Veneta, the list of upscale retailers is the envy of any metropolitan city. Many stores are taking part in the program and Scottsdale Fashion Square has dedicated space in the upper level Barneys New York wing to explain the program where the public can register for free prizes.

“Valerie is very familiar with this Arizona shopping paradise,” noted Vitale. “And since she inspired the Veebow concept, Valerie was very keen on partnering with them.”

Veebow was born when Ms. Bertinelli kept telling Vitale that coupons should be free, easy to use and paperless. This led him to the founding of a company aimed to change the “Group-Buying” landscape.

“Now consumers can enjoy special savings without pre-paying, purchasing or cutting out coupons,” explained Vitale. “And Veebow is a merchant-friendly marketing platform that can guarantee a 100% return on marketing dollars spent.”

Restaurant was the first category to be filled during Veebow’s launch last year. Since then, hundreds of companies have lined to be part of the shopping revolution including automotive, beauty and health, medical, entertainment, retail stores and other services. Today, Veebow features many categories in various cities, along with many national offers.

“I love to save money while shopping,” said Ms. Bertinelli. “And since over half of all purchases are made during the holidays, this promotion will give Scottsdale Fashion Square shoppers a way to have an even merrier season.”
