I found this posted while browsing my local news website here in the Charlotte, NC area. It really made me happy to see www.gottadeal.com had a link connected directly too it. It really does show how the website mentioned nationwide but currently being talked about locally. Thanks for the great site.

I have been telling everyone around here about it. The only bad thing..they won't check it out but they hoover over my desk looking at the ad scans or asking questions. Little things like the news makes me happy. :D

Very cool! So, if we would um..happen to forget the name of the site and searched for it on Yahoo, it would move up the list, right?

This morning I submitted a story idea to Fox 8 News here in Ohio. (For the morning show). They started talking about BF so wanted to get Gottadeal on their morning show. Told them the site and all information to contact Brad. Hopefully they will do a story

Yep: http://clarkhoward.c...otes/index.html


Since the current link no longer shows those show notes, I wanted to post the archived show notes for that day:
http://clarkhoward.c...tes/2006/11/01/

I went ahead and messaged a bunch of local TV & radio stations today (finally).
