Financial hard times have a lot of Salt Lake residents thinking about how we can save on the little luxuries that make life sweet, and also keep our money in the local community where it will do the most good. The recession, the buy local movement and the rise of social networking have combined to create an explosion in the popularity of "deal of the day" websites that offer substantial discounts on local food, services and entertainment.
One of the newest "deal of the day" services is myEZdeal.com. The website offers discounts at restaurants, bars, spas, comedy clubs, sporting events, theaters, classes, retailers, hotels, salons and more. Deals are delivered daily via email, as well as on myEZdeal.com, Facebook and Twitter. "We're excited to begin offering incredible discounts from local businesses in Salt Lake City; it's a great Western city that caters to not only its residents but also to its visitors," said Tim Niedel, CEO of myEZdeal.
The current EZdeal is 61 percent off at Amy's Martial Arts. Visit their website for more info and to enter for a chance to win a 32-inch Sony HDTV.
