Portland, OR – MEDIAmerica, publisher of Oregon Business and Oregon Home magazines, announces a new retail website: HalfOffOregon.com. The website offers lodging, dining, recreation and many other items at half off their regular cost.
 
The online marketplace features handpicked experiences, products and services unique to Oregon. Customers securely purchase gift certificates priced at half their value, and Half Off Oregon mails them that day. The premium deals are available in limited quantities.
 
Half Off Oregon distinguishes itself from other deal sites with its lack of gimmicks. There are no trigger quantities, membership fees, or national deals.
 
“Many social buying sites seem skewed toward national chains or products produced overseas,” says MEDIAmerica President and CEO Andrew Insinga. “I like the idea of bringing uniquely Oregon experiences to Oregonians. It has a more genuine and local feel to it."
 
Half Off Oregon is promoted through a network of statewide media, including Oregon Business magazine, Oregon Home magazine, and Discover Portland in-room visitor guides.
 
MEDIAmerica is a locally owned publishing company with more than 30 years of operating in Oregon.
