Get --and Give-- with Deals that Give Back
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Local Great Deals, a Cincinnati-based company that offers online coupons for local businesses. The company has also gotten into the "Daily Deal" business -- with a twist -- through Deals that Give Back.
Deals that Give Back works, in part, like Groupon or Living Social, where you can purchase a coupon for local services, products, food, etc., for 50 percent off or more. But as its name implies, Deals that Give Back also offers a little something different. 10 percent of your purchase goes to a local nonprofit that you can choose (from a provided list).
Each day Deals that Give Back features an area nonprofit along with the deal. So you get a little, and give a little! Deals that Give Back is also available in Columbus and Dayton, in addition to several other cities.
(Full Disclosure: I decided to write about Deals that Give Back after being contacted by them. Direct links to their sites are on my blog, and CincyBurb will be promoted through their email list. A pretty sweet trade in my opinion.)
You can sign up for the deals through email, and connect with Deals that Give Back on Facebook and Twitter.
If you're a local business or nonprofit interested in connecting with Deals that Give back, contact them here.
