San Ramon, January 12, 2006-BigDates.com, the leading provider of outsourced Reminder Service Solutions, today announced a licensing agreement with Overstock.com® (NASDAQ: OSTK), one of the largest and fastest-growing online retailers in the U.S. Overstock.com recently launched O-minders, a free reminder service powered by BigDates.com, which provides its customers with the ultimate in shopper convenience.

O-minders offers consumers much more than a typical reminder service. In addition to email and mobile phone reminders for important dates and holidays, the reminders suggest specific and appropriate Ecards and Overstock.com products for each gift recipient based on their age and gender.

According to Overstock.com’s Senior Vice President of Marketing, Kamille Twomey, “O-minders is a god-send for consumers like me who often forget birthdays until the last minute and then overpay for gifts. With O-minders, busy shoppers can receive reminders of special dates and gift ideas throughout the year, and then send friends, family, and co-workers gifts they’ll really enjoy -- all while taking advantage of Overstock.com’s online best price guarantee.”

“With the holidays behind us, it’s a good time for retailers to focus on solutions for year-round gifting,” said Paul Love, President of BigDates.com. “Overstock is the perfect candidate for our reminder solution because it has great breadth of product (i.e. appropriate gifts for every occasion), a strong brand, and millions of loyal customers. Needless to say, we are very excited about our relationship with Overstock and what it signifies for BigDates.”
