Active.com Launches Daily Deal Effort
San Diego-based Active Network, the operator of online sports registration and community sites, has jumped on the daily deals bandwagon, saying today that its Active.com site has launched a new, daily deals program. The new program, Active.com Schwaggle, offers a deal a day on fitness related products and services. Active said that the new program is launching first in the San Francisco Bay area, where it will offer deals three times a week. Active said it plans to roll out the Schwaggle program in Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago sometimes in Q1, with 20 other markets launched by the end of the year. Active.com said the daily deals will offer both sports and fitness products and services, as well as discounted registration on endurance events and golf tee times.
