I wanted to introduce a new daily deal site that is going to be launching soon in Phoenix, AZ. This site was created by Elena, a woman who loves saving money and discovering what her neighborhood has to offer. Therefore, she created BigDealGirl.com to help out and connect with other women in the Phoenix Metro area who share the same interests. Once it launches, the website will be bringing their subscribers deals of up to 90% off at local restaurants, family activities, spas and more. The email sign up takes only seconds and it's completely free. The site will also have a wonderful referral program which will make it possible for members to score free deals.


And if that wasn't enough, they are also sponsoring a giveaway here on Arizona Shopping Secrets. One lucky winner will receive a $50 Fry's Food Store gift card. Use the Rafflecopter form below to enter.
