A new deal every week If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is ... unless it’s the Bureau County Republican’s new program called bcrdeal$. bcrdeal$ is a great way for readers to save a few dollars while patronizing local merchants. It’s easy. It’s quick. It’s fun. And most important ... bcrdeal$ will really save you some money. So how does it work? The BCR works with area businesses to negotiate some tremendous discounts for readers. These merchants choose a special offer, reserved only for bcrdeal$ participants. For example, a restaurant might offer a $20 gift card for $10. That means you pay only $10, but the business gives you $20 in food/merchandise. It’s just that simple. Many of these offers are limited, which means the business is only selling a certain number of deals. Some of the deals are a buy one, get one free deal, or the business may offer a specific service or product at a very discounted price. Specific instructions accompany each deal. Getting started is effortless. To sign up, all you need to do is go to www.bcrnews.com and click on the bcrdeal$ icon at the top of the page. After providing an email address, you will receive an alert each week, notifying you of the current bcrdeal. If you choose to buy the deal, you’ll be asked to register and provide a credit card number to pay for the deal. You’ll receive a voucher for the deal delivered directly to your email address, and you’ll present that voucher at the business to get your deal. It’s as simple as that. This new exciting program — bcrdeal$ — begins Tuesday. Sign up now to make sure you’re one of the first to be notified about some fantastic savings in the Illinois Valley area. You’re going to absolutely love bcrdeal$. If you have any questions, give us a call @ 815-526-4429
