View Full Version : CitySpree giving away the store again (75% off till Saturday)

This place has been pretty cool with me.
They have the restaurant and attraction discounts and things seem to work out well. The locations give them free certificates in exchange for advertising and CitySpree then sells them on the cheap (up to 75% off if you are the only bidder -- most auctions last only an hour -- and you buy only from the auction menu on the cheap days).
They recently had some problems with some certificates (lost in mail or processing) but they seem to be very responsive to me.

I just went in and bid for 7 different dining GC's. If even just a few of these go through I would be thrilled!! What an awesome deal! Thanks Gunman, although I've seen other posts about CitySpree, I never really checked them out until I saw your post!
i wish i could check it out...but i actually spent a bit on the trip....and i am leaving tomorrow

Last time I checked, Cityspree didn't have diddly for Denver. Now it's got a couple dozen restaurants, including a couple I visit anyway. Nobody's bidding, so it's like a 75% off sale with free shipping. Woohoo!

I won one auction for 50% off face value..but i've yet to recieve my GC. I'll hold off on future bids until i see my first prize.

It normally takes about 2 weeks to get the certs (each is mailed separately)
They say 10-14 days so that is a good guide. Sometimes you will get them sooner.
If you want to win the auctions, just go in 5 minutes before they end (they are only 1-2 hours) and you will likely win. If there is another bidder, just hold off and buy next hour. If you start a bidding war, then you will pay too much :-) (even if it is only $5 more)
Like I said, I have bought a bunch of the GCs and there don't seem to be any problems (I haven't redeemed any -- going to this weekend -- but others say there are no problems)
Can't complain, 75% off !!!

I received mine and have used several... no problems whatsoever. They came in just over a week. Definitely a sweet deal.
i bid on 2 gc's for my favorite resturant in chicago and won both without any competition. paid only 7.50 for each worth 30 bucks. they got here in about a week. too bad i cant use em both at the same time cuz 30 bux will cover about one dinner.

didn't see anything good in LA

$100 worth of resturant food for $24....
Wish they had more resturants in the Wash DC area though

Hey anyone get a membership card yet? Thought we should have got it when we signed up. I've been a member for almost 3 months. I've won 4 GC's and have yet to use them. Guess I see how they make their money, sell GC's to people who have their face glued to their monitors, surfing the net for deals.... Ha Ha Ha. Hey that's ME !!!

I got $25 worth of food and drinks for $6.00 hehe now I don't have to go fast food I could be a big spender

$75 GC for $18.75 to a NYC restaurant. That'll cover one plate. Now I'm only on the hook for the other.
I think I will call this "deals for meals." Hey, it beats paying full price.
