CityDeals - Discounts Savings and Gift CardsIf you’re a close watcher of Fort Worth on the Cheap, you’ll notice a new banner somewhere in the middle of the homepage – the one with the smart-looking chick holding an envelope. That’s CityDeals, a new deal site that’s recently come to our attention.

Unlike the deal-a-day sites, CityDeals has lots of deals to pick from everyday. You can get significant savings on services, food and merchandise from both national and local retailers. Places like Cold Stone Creamery and Cinemark Theatres, as well as a plethora of local salons, spas and entertainment venues, have recently had deals posted on the site. Buying the deal is easy, too – just pick what you like, check out, and you’ll get your certificate in 2 to 3 weeks. You can even request a deal for a specific retailer if you want. There aren’t any local deals for DFW up yet, but they’ll be running soon. (See an example of a great local deal they’re running for another city. And here’s a national deal you can take advantage of now.)

In commemoration of its DFW launch, CityDeals is sponsoring a giveaway. Two lucky FWOtC readers will receive a $25 gift certificate, good for anything on the CityDeals site. To enter, do two things: Join both the CityDeals email list and the FWotC e-mail list. Then leave a comment on this post with your name and the email address that you used to sign up. (If you are already on the FWotC e-mail list, mention that in your comment. But both lists must be joined to enter.)

If you want bonus entries, do one (or both) of these things and leave a separate comment for each one:
1. “Like” FWotC on Facebook
2. Tweet this on Twitter: “Win $25 in bargains from @fwcheap!”

I’ll draw for the winner at 9 a.m. on Aug. 8 and notify the winner shortly after verifying their entry. This giveaway is for Texas residents only.

Thanks, and good luck!
