i hope you love a good deal too cuz you are in for one. unfortunately this will only apply if you live in the portland metro area. i have heard about this on 104.1 the fish, but never took the time to look into it. many local businesses (spas, carpet cleaners, photographers, restaurants, etc) offer $50 worth of gift certificates for 25 dollars! yes, it's true! you pay 3.75 for shipping and have to wait 7-10 business days for it to come in the mail, but then you can spend it on anything (check individual listings for small restrictions like purchasing alcohol, etc)..woohoo!
