Black Friday Holiday Edition Coming Soon!

The countdown is on to serious savings (we're pretty sure you've noticed our countdown clock.) Specifically, we're counting down to offer you multiple exciting deals to make your Black Friday shopping a cinch.

After you get done stuffing your face this Thanksgiving, you may not want to go far from the couch. Unbuckling your belt a few loops won't make it any easier to recover from the inevitable food-induced coma in time for Black Friday shopping.

Never fear, that's why Seize the Deal is here. You can save big in the comfort of your own home thanks to our upcoming Black Friday special event.
From Thursday, Nov. 24 to Monday, Nov. 28, we'll be offering exclusive savings on restaurants, entertainment, salons, gift shops and so much more more! Can holiday shopping really get any easier?

If you live near Buffalo, Lafayette, Peoria, Dallas, Utica, Yakima, Abilene, Shreveport, Texarkana, Tyler, Victoria or New Jersey, you can take advantage of these amazing offers for a limited time. If you live near one of our other markets, you'll still be able to purchase at least one amazing deal.

Finally, to make it easier for you, be sure to check out our new interactive map that shows you all of the deals we're offering and where. All you have to do is browse, click and buy!

Faster Redemptions & More Buying Time!

Notice anything different about us?

We are striving to better serve you at Seize the Deal, which means things don't stay the same for too long. Here's a breakdown of the major ones:

Five-Day Deals

Ever missed out on a great deal that was only available for 24 hours? From now on, our deals will run for a standard of five days. While there will occasionally be deals that only run one day, you will usually be able to purchase it for four days after it's the featured deal in your area. Awesome, huh?

Day-After Redemption

Another big thing we've changed is when you can start redeeming your deal. Vouchers are now available to use the day after you purchase your deal! We know you've been frustrated buying a deal on a Friday and not being able to use it until after the weekend is over, so those days are gone. Regardless of when you purchase a deal during its five-day run, you can print out the next morning for instant Seize-isfaction! (Just make sure the business is open the day you want to use it.)

Interactive Map

Since deals will usually run five days, that means there will be multiple deals running at the same time. In order to make it more convenient for you, we've rolled out an interactive map so you can see all deals being offered and where they are. Here is an example:

Seize the Deal Has Moved!!!

Don't worry, the website isn't going anywhere... we just moved the location of our Dallas offices:
Seize the Deal/Townsquare Media has moved out of its parents' house (North Dallas Bank & Trust Co. building, on right) to a place of its own (left) on Campbell Rd. in Eastside, Richardson, TX.
Sure, it may only be 12 minutes from our previous location, but here are the Top 5 reasons why this is a good thing for you:

More window = more sunlight = happier write-ups.
Reason # 1: More sunlight!

If you noticed some of our deals the past few months had darker themes (long work week, TGIF, haunted houses, cannibalism, etc.), it was probably because we were sitting in self-loathing in the final cold, dark days of our old office. But thanks to all the windows at our new place, we can provide you with cheery, happy write-ups!

Reason # 2: Restaurants!

Just like Lady Gaga and Angry Birds are providing inspiration for this year's Halloween costumes, we need inspiration for the great restaurant deals we bring you every day. Our retail community has loads of great eateries like Twisted Root Burger Co. and Chiloso Mexican Bistro, so we can keep the cheesiness coming after eating our fill of it!

Our unofficial office mascot... don't ask.
Reason # 3: Coffee!

Not only is there also a 7-Eleven in our immediate vicinity, the office has a new Keurig coffee maker! That means plenty of wakey-juice so we can pump out the deals faster than you can say "caffeine overload." The only one who doesn't appreciate this fact is Kevin, a copywriter who doesn't drink coffee daily. (We don't think he's human.)

Reason # 4: Parking!

Bird poop. Texas heat. Not enough spaces. These are all things we don't have to deal with anymore now that we have our own parking garage. For the benefits this gives you, please use Reason #1, add a pinch of lesser road rage and shake it all together.

Reason # 5: Relaxing Environment
Just listening to some rock...

It would probably be impossible for a Customer Service Department to survive without some sort of relaxing outlet. Fortunately, all of our employees can take a nice, long walk at our new location. With the numerous walkways, large number of trees and boulder-shaped speakers playing jammin' tunes, we can be stress-free all day and serve you better.
