Hip Hip Hurray Giveaway | $25 for eReach Big Deal - Big Savings on Local Events, Restaurants, Services & Fun!

It's Wednesday...time for a giveaway!

I was recently contacted by eReach which is the online version of the Reach Magazine, a circular that features coupons for local businesses (I always stash my copy in the front of my coupon file folder).

eReach recently launched the Big Deal - a daily deal for big savings on local businesses (think restaurants, fun places to go, services, ticketed venues and games).  It's similar to other collective shopping sites; you sign up for the deal and other people do the same.  When the magic number of deals is reached, the deal is available and you get it - so if you see a deal that you really want, you're encouraged to share it with your friends, family, via email, on facebook, etc. 

The Big Deal is available here in Cincinnati and Dayton and in several other markets that Reach serves which are::

::Eastern US
::Evansville, IN
::Richmond, VA
::South Central Kentucky
::Toledo, OH
::Western US
::Youngstown, OH

You can sign up to get email alerts of each day's new Big Deal.  If you see one you like, you can click on over to eReach and grab it.

Some recent deals in the Cincinnati area include:

:: $30 for $60 of fun at Entertrainment Junction (in West Chester)
:: $5 for $10 at the Anderson and Amelia Donato's Pizza (mmmmm!)

And this deal, which is still available:

:: $40 for (4) Reds tickets and (4) Reds ballcaps for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend games, Fri 7:10 p, Sat 7:10 p, or Sun, 1:10 p.  The true value of this package is $128 - that's a really BIG DEAL! Click here if you want it!

Onto this week's giveaway!

I have been graciously given a $25 eReach Big Deal gift certificate/code to give to one lucky reader!
