Cuponica, a leader in daily deals and merchant discounts across Latin America, today announced the acquisition of Clickae, a leader in online daily deals and offers in Brazil. The addition of Clickae’s registered users, merchants and experienced team substantially enhances Cuponica’s footprint in Brazil. The combined company now provides over 600,000 enrolled consumers with 1,000 daily offers from over 3,000 merchants. Cuponica’s offers are available on the Web at http://www.cuponica.com and http://www.clickae.com.br/
“We are thrilled to welcome Clickae’s team and customers to the Cuponica family,” said Rodrigo Teijeiro, CEO of Fnbox, the Internet holding company that operates Cuponica. “Over half a million subscribers a month now access our web sites in Brazil alone, providing incredible value for consumers and merchants alike.”

Prior to the Clickae acquisition, most of Cuponica’s users and merchants were concentrated in Sao Paulo. Now Cuponica has local offers in over 15 cities in Brazil and will continue to drive further regional expansion in the area.
“Earlier this year, we forged a co-marketing and technology partnership with Cuponica, using their platform to better optimize our lead generation and payments processing efforts,” said Vinicius Villarinho, former CEO of Clickae who joins Cuponica as General Manager of Cuponica Brazil. “After getting to know the team, and discovering how our two businesses in Brazil complemented each other so well, we decided to join forces permanently and we are very excited about the outcome and what lies ahead.”
