Attack of The Evil Walmart Corps
Set in Gottadeal Land, a large busy city where families flocked to in order to save money and raise their children. Everyone knew that Gottadeal Land was the best place in the world to save money.
Mom, a housewife and a wonderful cook. She is one of the best at finding deals. & Dad, a hard working man who loves his wife and 3 children. He takes great pride in saving money. That's why he moved his family to Gottadeal Land two years ago.
It was almost the biggest day of the year. And all of Gottadeal Land was shaking with fear. The evil Walmart Corps had gotten to almost everyone and Mom didn't want to be next. She knew it was a risk but she had to get on the computer to search for the Black Friday ads on Gottadeal.com. She got Dad to stand guard at the front door with a bat. She found the ads and was making her list. All of a sudden she heard footsteps down the hall. They must have come through the window. It was men in black suits and ties. They said she could not look at the ads. They were their's and they were going to take them back. Dad came in running with his bat. But the Walmart Corps stopped him in his tracks. He began to roll back and roll back. They put up some kind of money wall, no bat could break. It was ten dollar bills stacked to the ceiling with a smiley face hanging from the top. It was Roll Back Smiley. Mom had heard terrible things about him before. The Walmart Corps said that since she had seen the Black Friday ads she could not go shopping this year, not on the biggest day of the year. Mom began to cry. They tried to take her computer and out of no where Computer Geek Man showed up. He laughed in the Walmart Corps faces. Mom knew Computer Geek Man could save them. He whipped out his 80% off Holiday deal and the Walmart Corps started melting away with Roll Back Smiley http://tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:nO3TxNW9YAf7kM:http://i.cnn.net/money/2006/07/05/news/companies/walmart.smileyworld/walmart_logo_smile.03.jpgright along with them. He told Mom not to worry http://tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:ol07RpQ7gACMIM:http://www.noworries.gq.nu/Face_Logo.gifthat everything would be fine.

A Family Guy spin-off
Rule the World by GottaDeal with host Stewie Griffin. Our favorite psycho baby hosts a game/reality show that follows several teams in a quest for world domination. The clevate is that all items/weapons/parts/materials needed to take over the world must be featured on GottaDeal!
Since Stewie does not reward failure, all the shows loosers get removed from the show in ever more inventive ways (catapult, trap door into a shark tank, dunked in honey and left near a red ant colony etc.)
Of corse if someone does win and take over the world, Stewie will give them the grand prize then eliminate the contestant/team so he may assume the role as world leader.

The members would be taken to a city (based on what city the show is in) downtown to try to fill a prompt, which would be buying a list of items that are strange and hard to find at a good price. Some of the items would be easy to find, but hard to find a shocking price on (coffee for example) and others would be extremely hard to find, and there would be small room for a different price to pop up (a certain kind of wood, etc).
The rules would be:
-Items must be from a respectable retailer
-You would only have 3 hours to complete the task
-You are not allowed to leave the city or have anyone outside your group help you
-Teams aren't allowed to ask for "special discounts" or say that they are on the show
This could be an event for the final two teams. Basically, they'd get to pick a city to go to, any city in the US, and will randomly be given ten items that are very hard to find in that area.
Basically, they'd do the same as above, just on a smaller scale.
Yet another idea could be in the start of the show, each team would be given a list of ten items at certain prices. If the team believes that they are awesome deals and they can't beat them, they can take the list and it could be as if they found the items on their own. If not, they can turn down the list, and would have 8 hours to find a better deal on any number of the listed items.
Each list would show the total savings on the items. If you go out and only get 5/10 of the items, but get better total savings than what was the worst team's list, you're in.
-Once you turn down the list, it's gone, there is no going back
-Same shopping rules as above
-You cannot talk about what your total saving amount is with the other teams
Another cool event would be a how much for your money like thing. A number would be stated, and each team can't go over that number, and they would try to get the biggest total savings number possible. The cost of the item would be found by taking the average of all local prices. Anyway, same rules as above, and they wouldn't be allowed to get under or over the number (tax not applying).
The last team wins: wins $1M, and gets to keep all of the items that they bought.
