Do You Deal Chicken?
If you’re like me, your email accounts have junk mail folders which are always full of unwanted information. Yet every now and then an advertisement comes through the filters. I usually take the time to quickly scan these emails to make sure they are of non-importance to me, then I manually set a filter to junk it from there on out. I was doing this the other day when an advertisement caught my attention, so I visited the site and liked what I read.
Deal Chicken “hatched” in 2010 and is already in 29 states. It offers you free sign-up to receive email alerts of excellent deals (50%-90% off) from local top neighborhood businesses. I like that! There are only 2 cities listed in my state of South Carolina so I selected the one nearest to me, Greenville. Sure enough, I started to receive alerts on “hatched deals” with the latest one for 50% off Tony’s Pizza and Subs. Expires 4/20/12. Works for me!! Once a deal is “hatched” you have to purchase it within the timeframe shown on the clock which is running on the Deal of the Day page. The Certificates can be redeemed the following day (unless appts need to be made), or at any time up until the date of expiration.
Yes, we now have another social commerce site where we can find great deals!! Check out these recently closed deals in the Greenville SC area: half off on men’s and women’s cuts at All The Rave Salon & Boutique; 50% off Bubble Tea, Desserts & More at O-Cha Bar; 50% off 4 yoga classes at Greenville Yoga; 50% off frozen yogurt at blueberryfrog; 54% off a 1 hour massage by John Bowman at Solar Tan; 50% off 8 baseball training sessions at West End Baseball Academy (that right there is a $112 savings!); 50% off fine cigars, accessories and unique gifts at The Cigar Boxx; 50% off fresh seafood, steaks, chicken and more at The Placid Pelican.
I don’t know about you, but I’m all for saving money. Five dollars here, twenty dollars there, it all adds up! Deal certificates are a great a way to say “thank you” to the UPS/FedEx delivery person, your mail carrier or newspaper delivery person, or the neighborhood kid who has helped you with some chores. You will need to check the fine print on deal certificates regardless which social commerce site you purchase them from. Some deals may not allow you to pass the certificate to a friend as a gift so be sure do double-check what the merchant will or will not allow.
Now the next time someone asks you, “Do you Deal Chicken“ you can reply ”yes, I do Deal Chicken!” But please, don’t do the chicken dance to prove your point. Just tell them about the savings you enjoy:)
