JDate® Introduces JPicks™: A Site for the Chosen Deals™

Kickoff Deal for Brent’s Delicatessen Sells Out before Lunch

February 8, 2011 – Beverly Hills, Calif. –The people behind JDate, the leading online community for Jewish singles, today launched JPicks.com, an exclusivedaily deal site offering only “Chosen Deals” of 50-90% off at local shops, eateries and entertainment venues in Los Angeles. Today’s launch deal, from Brent’s Delicatessen, sold out by 10:55 a.m. PST.

“We are thrilled to launch JPicks in Los Angeles and take great pride in its early success. Selling out our first deal well before noon underscores the power of the JDate community,” says Greg Liberman, President and Chief Operating Officer at Spark Networks®, parent company of JDate.

By taking a quality over quantity approach, JPicks has “more chutzpah than those other guys,” offering handpicked deals that won’t necessarily come every day. In other words, deals that don’t pass the test, won’t be “Chosen.”

“Over the past 13 years, JDate has become a uniquely influential community, and we constantly strive to offer our members as much value as possible. In JPicks, we created a service not only for current JDate members, but also for our loyal Success Stories and everyone else in Los Angeles,” continued Liberman. “While we will certainly offer plenty of great Jewish- and date-themed deals, you do not have to be single or Jewish to love JPicks. You just have to appreciate a great deal.”

Typically, a deal is only available for up to 24 hours and only while supplies last, so time is of the essence in redeeming a JPick. By completing the free, simple registration, members can guarantee they are among the first to hear about the Chosen Deals, so they have the chance to purchase before the deal expires.
