New LOCAL deal site pre-launch special: DealKadu

Can you believe it?  There’s another local deal site for people in the Green Bay area?  DealKadu is in pre-launch mode right now.  You can choose either Green Bay and Appleton vicinity or Oshkosh and Fond du Lac area.

How is this site different? Kadu is a dog that has been trained to sniff out deals (just go with it–if it means more opportunities for great deals, I’ll play the game).  If you buy the deal, you will also be given a token in your account that can be used for another deal at that same business for a later visit.  You also have the option of gifting that token or trading it with another member of DealKadu who DOES want it.  You can read all about it HERE.

Right now you can also buy $20 of Kadu Kash for only $5.  Kadu Kash can be used towards future deals offered on the site.

The only downside I see right now is that they only take PayPal as a form of payment.

Can’t wait to see what this site has to offer once it officially goes live.

Happy Birthday to The Bargain Sleuth!

One year ago today I set up shop on Facebook as The Bargain Sleuth as a way to stop annoying my Facebook friends who didn’t live in the Green Bay area with the deals I was posting.  What a year it has been!

April 17th, 2010: The Bargain Sleuth on Facebook is launched with 19 of my closest friends and family signing up right away
June 5th, 2010:  100 fans
Sept. 15, 2010: 200 fans
Oct. 30, 2010: 300 fans
Dec, 21, 2010: 400 fans
March 20, 2011: 500 fans
April 17, 2011: 530 fans

Thank you so much Colleen Dunkel, for my awesome logo.  A few months after I started the Facebook page, I finally got around to getting my own logo (remember the picture of the baby in diapers with the Sherlock hat and magnifying glass?)  I LOVE The Bargain Sleuth logo and hopefully when people think of me, they think of her very cool logo design.

I certainly never thought this many people would find out about my little blog, the Little Engine that Could, picking up a few fans each week thanks to old-fashioned word-of-mouth.  Thank you to my fans for telling friends and family about The Bargain Sleuth, it shows that you think enough of what I post to tell others.  I really do appreciate it.  And I’ll keep doing my best to bring you the best of the best deals I see in the Green Bay area, mixed in with all the exceptional online deals I see, too.

And thanks to all the great “family” of bloggers I’ve gotten to “meet”: Shelly, Carrie, Jon, Jason, Mike & Lisa, Rose, Jill, Rita, Mary Jo and more. Thanks for the help, the ideas, and most importantly, the deals you send my way. :-) 

As I’ve mentioned before, with the first anniversary of my fifth “baby”, there are going to be some major changes, so stay tuned to see what’s in store!

Bloggers Greatest Hits

I read a LOT of money-saving blogs and websites (currently at 60 on my RSS feed and who knows how many on my Facebook news feed, maybe 15-20 more).  And sometimes I think to myself “Hey, they beat me to the punch–I wanted to write something about that!”  Since I realize you don’t read 70-80 blogs and I dislike repeating what others have said, I thought I’d try posting a round-up of some of my favorite posts. A few are deals I’ve seen, but most are “food for thought” articles you might enjoy:

Printable Rebate Forms available
Free Tombstone Pizzas when you buy Hasbro games (up to FIVE FREE)

Food for Thought:
Are you a shelf clearer?
Couponing Lingo for Newbies
How I lost thousands of dollars (and other Coupon myths) Part 2
Open Dating on your pantry items
Seven Habits of Highly Successful Spenders
To Coupon or Not to Coupon, that is the question
