Who doesn't love to find a great deal?
Everyone gets a thrill from driving past a favorite local boutique and seeing a "one day only" 60 percent off sale. Or realizing you not only have a half-off coupon for a grocery store, but that same store is honoring a competitor's $10 off deal. Or discovering that you can get a massage for half off at a spa you always wanted to try but couldn't afford.
This is what Charleston Savvy Shopper is all about. Helping you find great deals!
Every week in this space, we will provide you with tips, advice and suggestions to help guide you to great shopping deals in the Lowcountry.
But you won't have to wait until Fridays to get fresh leads because we also are launching a new website, www.charlestonsavvyshopper.com, where you'll find a blog pointing you to deals in the area, as well as a compendium of great advice from The Post and Courier. We'll cover everything from personal finance, couponing tips, news from our local retail market to free or low-cost entertainment options, inexpensive dine-at-home deals and more.
The centerpiece of this new website will be our Deal of the Day -- discounted local products and services offered exclusively through email. You can sign up online.
Let me know what you think of this new column and website. Got a cool deal you want to share? Email email@example.com. You also can follow @chssavvyshopper on Twitter or CharlestonSavvyShopper on Facebook.
