Use this thread to post or discuss any media appearances you see for the site. Be sure to only post stories from this year, not from 2005.

Here is the first one. I did a phone interview this morning and it should be in the paper tomorrow:

AWESOME! Everyone get ready for GD (GottaDeal) to grow more! I personally can't wait. The more the merrier. BTW, Brad, have you thought about notifying some press about the TMX site you have going? Also, your age REALLY surprised me! :D

Hijack NBC's "Today" show and demand everyone who bought 20+ Elmo TMX's return them to the store and donate their eBay profits to a local charity.

While giving a shout-out to your GottaDeal homies of course ;)

I'll be posting a thread in the "BF Basics" forum shortly that will have ways you can spread the word. I'll post a link in this thread when it's done as well.

I only get the Arizona Republic on weekends. Makes me wish I just bought a paper yesterday.

I, too, welcome all my fellow Maricopians to GottaDeal! Enjoy your stay! :D

Actually I think the story is in today's paper (was just posted on the web site yesterday) so you could still go out and get one (and an extra one for me :P )

Yeah, that type-o is in the print article as well. Someone should've caught that one when they put it online and before they printed it. :eek:

Per the article, they got it off the "GANNETT NEWS SERVICE" so other papers using that service might start running it soon, too.

Well in that case the GottaDeal stuff might be appearing on Channel 10 in Knoxville because as I remember WBIR was owned by Gannett.:) Look out we'll soon have an influx of East Tennesseeans:)

Just so there's no mass confusion here:

Erica Sagon, the reporter who wrote Brad's article, is a reporter hired for the 'AZ Republic'. Now, the 'Ganett News Service' is who produces that Phoenix local paper and also produces many others around the country and even around the world. Therefore Brad's article could end up in any of the papers Ganett makes. Be on the lookout.

Here's a list of local newspapers Ganett produces. And yes, the 'Florida Today' is listed:
Ganett Newspapers

And just for the record, the 'AZ Republic' has the original article and had it first. With Erica's type-o and all. So ... :razz:
