February 2, 2012
WASHINGTON – In an effort to help members live healthier, more active lives, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) has launched a new website, "Blue365 Deals," utilizing a featured deal platform to offer exclusive health, wellness and other discounts to Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies' members nationwide. Blue365 Deals features exciting weekly offers and great discounts from top national and local retailers, including fitness gear, gym memberships, healthy eating options, income tax preparation, and more.
By signing up at Blue365 Deals, members will receive weekly e-mails with special savings from nationally recognized companies such as Snap Fitness®, eDiets.com®, Reebok®, H&R Block® and others. These featured deals will be available for a limited time and will be spotlighted on the Blue365 website along with a number of standing discounts that are accessible at any time.
"Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies are committed to increasing the number of 'healthy transactions' we have with our members. Unique resources like the Blue365 Deals website play an important role in supporting this," said Scott P. Serota, president and CEO of BCBSA. "By offering discounts on healthy products and other services, we're making it easier and more cost effective for members to take advantage of programs that will help them maintain a healthier, and happier, lifestyle."
In addition to discounts featured on the site, Blue365 members can also earn $10 rewards to use towards the purchase of future deals by inviting friends and extended family who are members of a participating Blue company to join and purchase a deal on Blue365. The platform will be supported via social media channels and a media campaign launching in late spring.
