Mario Lopez and Yumani.com launch challenge for shoppers to save money.

Online PR News – 05-December-2012 – New York, NY – Yumani, a new non-traditional online shopping platform announced a partnership with Mario Lopez, an American television host and actor. Lopez and Yumani created the #MarioYumaniChallenge to help shoppers save money during the holiday season by using Yumani to find the best deals.
Yumani lets consumers request the products they want, from electronics to home goods and even holiday gifts, while retail sellers compete to offer better prices on those products. Yumani’s other key feature is the ability for multiple users to “Yunite” with other consumers in a bulk buying request and benefit as an individual in the purchase. As the only website of its kind, Yumani is free to join for buyers and sellers alike and does not require any listing fees like many other e-commerce sites.
The #MarioYumaniChallenge will run through the Christmas shopping season from November 30th through December 24th. Shoppers on the Yumani site will tweet about the deals they found using the hashtag and Yumani will randomly select one winner per week and pay for an item they requested on Yumani.com.
“As someone who is planning a wedding, raising a child, and preparing for the holidays I appreciate what a valuable tool this will be for families”, said Mario Lopez, American television host and actor. “It helps save money and gives the consumer control of the process. I hope to see some great deals with the #MarioYumaniChallenge.”
“We are delighted to have Mario Lopez as an enthusiastic Yumani user,” said Henry Zilberman, founder and Chairman of Yumani. “We see Mario’s excitement for our site as a great way to reach a broader audience, and know that our shopping challenge will help many consumers to save money and get the best value this holiday season.”
