Found this in "The City Paper" (Nashville). Half Off Depot offers gift cards from local merchants at 50% off face value. Which is a beautiful thing.
Here's their "about us" info:
How does it work?
Here's how Half Off Depot works, in two easy steps:
1. You go to HalfOffDepot.com, select your city, and pick out gift certificates to your favorite businesses. You then purchase these gift certificates from us for half their face value.
2. Once your certificates arrive in the mail, you take each gift certificate to the business that issued it, and use the full value of your gift certificate (twice what you paid for it) toward your purchase there.
Seriously, that's all there is to it. Whatever you spent at HalfOffDepot.com, you will redeem twofold at the businesses you've selected. And you can expect to be treated as a first-class citizen, because the businesses aren't giving you anything for free — the other half of your gift certificate has already been paid for by our publishing partners. All that makes you is a smart shopper!
Ok, so at this point there's only a few cities offered but I remain optimistic for the rest of you. Click the image above for link. Check it out!
