Giveaway and Special Offer

I’m a huge fan of deal sites. As you may have noticed in previous posts, I often use deal sites to do the activities I post about. Recently, Dealavue contacted me and wanted me to check out their site, so I jumped on the chance. (Watch for future posts about places we’ve visited using Dealavue deals!)
Dealavue is a local Chicago area site and they are different from the other sites because they offer over 500 daily real-time deals for dining, entertainment, events, health & beauty, recreation, services, shopping, sports, and travel. They even have a great new application that allows you to purchase deals right from your iPhone or iPad and use the vouchers right away – no printing or waiting for the deal to go live! This is perfect when you’re out with the kids; no need to remember your printout (I can not tell you how many times I have had to run back into the house for a deal printout!), and you’re free to make plans while you’re on the go. And, when you refer friends, you get $5 credit when they make their first purchase.
Here are just a few deals that caught my eye:
  • Go Bananas – Unlimited ride wristband, 20 tokens, & $5 food credit – $12 ($24 value)
  • Harvey the Wonder Dog – party appearance – $75 ($150 value)
  • The People’s Choice Family Fun Center – Large cheese pizza, pitcher of pop, & 40 tokens – $10 ($23 value)
  • The Little Gym – 6 summer classes – $50 ($167 value)
  • Beanstalk – $25 shopping credit – $15
  • – $25 shopping credit – $10
  • 38 Degrees – $10 credit – $5
  • Photo Bin – Hardcover photobook – $10 ($35 value)
  • Head to Toe Salon – Mani + Pedi – $27 ($60 value)

Dealavue wants to give away $25 Dealavue credit to one lucky winner! And, as a special promotion, all my readers can receive $5 toward their first Dealavue purchase! Just enter the code TODDLING (all caps) when you check out.
