Nicely engraved stock certificate from CoolSavings, Inc. dating back to 2003. This document, which contains the printed signatures of the company President/CEO and Secretary, was printed by the Security-Columbian / United States Bank Note Company, and measures approximately 12" (w) by 8" (h).
This certificate's vignette features the company's piggy bank logo.
Nice piece from an early dot com company.
CoolSavings, Inc. was founded in 1995. The company launched its consumer web site CoolSavings.com in 1997 to give advertisers a way to deliver coupons and savings to registered site users. By 1995, more than 45 million people are registered on the site.
The brand eventually evolved beyond couponing to other forms of online marketing. CoolSavings offers also appeared on other publisher web sites, including Weather.com and About.com.
In 1995 the company became Q Interactive.
