Founded in 2010 by Michael Bolling, ZingDealz quickly emerged as a leading destination for Bend consumers seeking to save money every day on valuable goods and services. By offering compelling values with Bend’s most popular businesses, such as Ben & Jerry's, Baldy’s, Baltazar's, Mother's Juice Cafe, Rockin' Daves and Bagel Bistro, ZingDealz quickly grew it's subscriber base and attracted the attention of Tampa-based Crusader Deals, which already had its own operations in the Bend market. “The ZingDealz team did a nice job of educating Bend consumers and merchants about the compelling value of a well-run daily deal program. We look forward to integrating the ZingDealz operation with our existing operations in Bend and extending our full suite of services to our subscribers and merchants,” said Barry Gosin, President & CEO of Crusader Deals Enterprises, LLC.
“Crusader Deals is a well-known brand with a track record of success in Bend and in nearby Eugene, Oregon, and we are thrilled to join the Crusader Deals team,” said Marta Boelens, Director of Operations for ZingDealz.com. “Our members and merchants will greatly benefit from being a part of Crusader Deals larger community, and we already have many exciting deals lined up.”
Michael Bolling, founder of ZingDealz.com, has decided to pursue other business interests. Commenting on the acquisition, he stated: “It has been our privilege to serve our members and merchants over the past year. We are confident that Crusader Deals is the best possible partner to expand upon the foundation that we have laid with ZingDealz.
The deal closed in March and terms were not disclosed.
