And now a word from our sponsors. But it is in the interest of consumer news.
Publisher Alan Leveritt notes we've bulked up our offerings on our Half Off Depot site. This is a no-gimmick, real deal. Pay X amount for a gift certificate, get twice as much goods of your choice at the merchant in return. Among our new stuff:
* Pay $25 and you can pick up $50 worth of groceries and prepared food at Argenta Market No gimmick. Really. Grab $50 worth of milk, present the certificate for which you paid $25 and walk out with it.
* Pay $25 and you can buy $50 worth of good Italian eating at Graffiti's, Vesuvio or Salut Italian Bistro.
There are many more participants: Catfish City, Sticky Fingerz, Juanita's, Hunka Pie, Hampton Inn, Stonelinks, Starving Artist Cafe, Big Whiskey, So, Arkansas Symphony, Pizza Cafe and Arkansas Laser Dynamics.
You can buy, download, print and use these certificates for lunch or a round of golf or hotel room today. Or later. Each gift certificate offer spells out the terms
