You can find Portland Oregon deals all around the city. With the advanced technology of social networking, the chance to discover freebies, half-offs, discounts and buy-1- get-1 free deals are even more readily available.
I absolutely love finding new things to do, places to eat and stay at within the city, but uncovering some sort of Portland special for the place I'm at is like uncovering buried treasure. I know that I'm easily amused, but give me a break! haha. I find that having my Android smart phone has been a major asset in my quest for city-wide domination.
Using such services as Foursquare, Yelp, and Gowalla has been a terrific help. Businesses that know how to get the word out about their own Portland Oregon deals in these ways have been reaping the benefits of new patrons, repeat customers and more money.
Here's an example of what local businesses are doing around here and the type of deals they are offering. I attended a Foursquare event in April on Foursquare Day, held by Whiffies Fried Pies (a food cart over on 12th and Hawthorne).
They put the word out that they wanted to help all Foursquare users get their Super Swarm Badge (if you don't know what a Badge is, head over to Foursquare's site and sign up. It's free and fun!). Every person that "checked in" received a $1 off their fried pie and was entered into a drawing to win a free pie each day for an entire year.
To make a long story short, the result would be 250+ people all at one time in one place. The media showed up, there was a live streaming broadcast from a local Internet show and, of course, hundreds of hungry geeks. It was a big success and a good time to be had by all. I'm sure that Whiffies will be reaping the benefits for years to come.
So, stop by this page often. I'll be sure to keep listing additional Portland Oregon deals and offers as I find them and telling you how to get them.
If you have deals and discounts that you would like to share with the Portland crowd, contact me, let me know and I'll be happy to add you to the list. And awaaay we go! ;)
