Money Monday: Que Coupons
Everyone likes to find deals and save money, and now you can do it with Spanish flair. In tonight's Money Monday, 7's Lynn Martinez tells us about a company offering daily deals with a latin twist.
WSVN -- There's nothing like Latin charm, especially when it comes to charm bracelets.
Vanessa Baldomero, Likes Que Coupons: "Oh that's so cute!"
Salesperson: "Right, that's the Cuban flag."
Vanessa Baldomero found out about Santayana Jewelry Store, owned by Cuban immigrants, through a new daily deals site called Que Coupons.
Vanessa Baldomero, Likes Que Coupons: "I love the fact that it's local businesses, a lot of Hispanic-based businesses. I honestly didn't know that Santayana was right by my house."
Que Coupons is known for serving up its daily deals with a distinctly Latin flavor.
Sandy Perez Abbott, Que Coupons: "I just like to be able to introduce to the Hispanic audience their own merchants that they may not be able to get a deal from otherwise, and also to those that aren't bilingual, that don't even speak Spanish, to introduce them to different aspects of our culture."
Like tickets to the annual Taste of Peru event, shown here on YouTube.
Que Coupons works with the Peruvian American Chamber of Commerce to offer discounted tickets and free deals.
Iliana Patty Mustelier, Peruvian American Chamber of Commerce: "It has helped us tremendously, 'cause it gives us the flavor of both worlds, pretty much, and of course, consumers like the fact that they can get discounted tickets as well, and that is always a plus, that they can save some money."
You'll find the deals online at quecoupons.com. Just open an account with your name and e-mail address.
Chris Sievert is a big fan.
Chris Sievert: "It's an interesting quirk on how they used the Spanglish version to bring the Hispanic and American market together. It really geared itself to the South Florida market, where I currently live."
Bilingual offerings that translate to great deals in any language.
Sandy Perez Abbott, Que Coupons: "It's not all about selling a deal, but really just knitting our community together."
