Going against the old adage, what seems too good to be true usually is, the Bryan County News is teaming up with local businesses to prove that there are still a few good deals out there.
The concept of "half price Fridays" is simple: Every Friday, the News website will feature different local restaurants. By clicking on the advertisement, customers are sent to a secure online payment site where they can buy coupons for half the price of the redeemable value – customers pay $25 for $50 gift cards.
The coupons, which feature restaurants, movie theaters and other local businesses, are helpful when trying to stick to a budget.
"It really helps the community," said Tricia Moore, Bryan County News online sales representative.The only requirement is that customers must purchase the coupons online. They aren’t available in stores or by phone. The buying period begins each Friday at 8 a.m. and lasts until the cards are cards are sold out. Opportunity is limited as each advertiser provides only 50 half-price gift cards.
Some of the upcoming featured businesses include Southern Image, Michael’s Deli and Seafood and What’s the Scoop Café.
There also are a few remaining coupons available for Beef O Brady’s, which was featured on the Web site earlier.
To generate interest in online communities, Moore often blogs about businesses featured during upcoming half-price Fridays.
