Today we are giving away…
A $25 Gift Certificate to Viva Salon
and a $25 Gift Certificate to Briarhurst Manor
By now, you may have noticed that I like to support local businesses. When you shop locally, three times as many of your dollars are reinvested in our community. This creates jobs and funds city services through sales tax. By shopping locally, you are also protecting our community character and ensuring product diversity. Think about it: you can’t find an “I survived the drive” Pikes Peak t-shirt at Walmart, can you? Another benefit of keeping your dollars local is environmental sustainability by reducing shipping and transportation costs.
A common misconception exists that it’s always more expensive to shop locally. Not necessarily true. I’d like to introduce you to a great resource for saving money while supporting local businesses. LocalCertificates.com offers impressive discounts on gift certificates to restaurants, retail shops, services, bed & breakfasts, and attractions.
I thought I would highlight a few of the best deals available TODAY on LocalCertificates.com (but don’t forget to check out LocalCertificates.com for all the details):
- The Pita Pit: 2 Pitas for $5 (a $13 value)
- La Carreta Mexican Restaurant: $10 gift certificate for $3
- Old Town Guesthouse Bed & Breakfast: one night stay and Treasures of Colorado book for $45 (a $260 value, two-night minimum stay)
- Glacier Homemade Ice Cream & Gelato: 4 buy-one-get-one-free coupons for $2 (a $20 value)
- Planet Beach: A Day at the Spa for $15 (a $75 value)
- Double Eagle Hotel & Casino: One night stay and dinner for two for $60 (a $165 value)
Some of these deals would make a great stocking stuffer. No one needs to know that the $10 gift certificate you gave only cost you $3.
Everyone is a winner today! LocalCertificates.com is giving away a $4 gift certificate good for anything on their site to every reader of Colorado Springs Giveaways. Several of the gift certificates cost less than $4, so that means you could get something for FREE!
