While most men enjoy the ease and convenience of online shopping, the majority of online deals and promotions continue to cater to women
San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
Ebates, the pioneer and leader in online cash back shopping today announced a special promotion to offer men outstanding deals on their favorite products. Dubbed "Man Week", this promotion will enable men to purchase a wide variety of products from popular retailers including Bass Pro Shops, Champion, Hanes, Omaha Steaks, Men's Wearhouse, Cabela's and Lumber Liquidators and earn up to 10 percent cash back. The Man Week promotion will run until September 14th.
Over the past few years, an increasing number of men have turned to the Internet to shop. According to a recent report issued by eMarketer, over 96 million men in the US are Internet users. For a majority of these men, online shopping behavior is goal-oriented, much like offline trips to a store. Despite the increase in the number of men shopping online, most promotions, coupons and rebates continue to target women shoppers. Ebates' Man Week promotion was designed to focus on stores and products that most appeal to men and to give shoppers up to double cash back on their purchases. This promotion is also the perfect opportunity for women shoppers to purchase items from a carefully selected set of stores guaranteed to appeal to the men in their lives.
"While most men enjoy the ease and convenience of online shopping, the majority of online deals and promotions continue to cater to women," said Kevin Johnson, CEO of Ebates. "At Ebates we decided to create a sale that pays extra attention to our male members, Man Week offers savvy shoppers an chance to buy some of their favorite items, from clothing to sporting goods, all while earning extra cash back."
