These days we're all looking to save a buck, but did you know there's a way to get a great local deal just by asking for it?
Contact 13's Tricia Kean shows you a radio station dedicated to savings.
Radio DJ Renee Reed is one of the hosts of The Radio Shopping Show on KSHP 1400 AM.
It's a program that helps locals find great deals on everything from dinner and a show to golf, haircuts and even car maintenance.
Station Vice President and General Manager Brett Grant says these days business is booming.
"We're working right now with thousands of different area merchants and offers on the program. We've got about $25,000 different households that shop with The Radio Shopping Show over a given year," said Brett.
With such a broad range of clients, an evening out that may have seemed too pricey could be within reach for listeners.
"Typically we save them between 40% and 70% off every day. So it's a great way for them to live large for less. Especially with the economy the way it is right now," said Brett.
The Radio Shopping Show has been in Las Vegas for more than 12 years.
Rick Jakle, president of KSHP Radio, came up with the idea nearly three decades ago.
"It was 1982 and it was during the recession of '81 and '82 when things were really, really tight," said Jakle.
As the years pass Jakle says more and more people are turning to The Radio Shopping Show to get them through thick and thin.
"This concept works wonderfully in good economies and it works even better in economies like we're experiencing right now," said Jakle.
Brett Grant says the best part is in good times or bad the show appeals to everybody.
"Everybody likes to save money. So it's a great way for people to be introduced to new products and still be able to live their life in a normal fashion and be able to save some money at the same time," said Brett.
So here is the Contact 13 bottom line, The Radio Shopping Show is on at the air from 7am to 9 am and then again from 1pm to 6 pm.
To buy from the show, you must be a member and signing up is free.
Then you just dial 221- SAVE and find the deal you're looking for.
