Christmas is almost here! I set a deadline for myself that I would be done with shopping by December 15th and today is the 14th. I am at the end of my budget but still have some people to buy for. I shopped for personal items earlier this week for family. The people left on my list are not family so that will not work. But I still insist that it be something awesome that I get for them. SO what can I get for the teachers and friends left on the list that is awesome, a great price and easy to purchase? I discovered THE PLACE this week to find just that, The Mastercard Marketplace. I have to share this with you because you will love this too!
MasterCard Marketplace offers an easy and convenient solution with outstanding special offers. Mastercard is the only brand we have in our family. It is on our debit and credit cards. We prefer Mastercard because it is accepted almost everywhere. Unlike the other credit card companies that are often unaccepted at retailers. On the MasterCard MarketPlace you do not have to sign up for anything! You do not have to give a credit card number or connect to any social network. There are no strings attached at all. What the Marketplace does is collect deals, discounts and other special offers from local companies to national online sites. You can find restaurants, events and stores near you. Or your can choose to look for nationwide offers and discounts.
First, I put in my zip code to find deals near me. I was taken to a page with amazing deals just for me. The first deal was for a restaurant that we love! $4 for $10 at Las Ramadas Mexican Grill. I thought about the people that live near me that would enjoy and appreciate a gift card to a local restaurant, beauty shop or sporting event.
Next, I narrowed by category. I did that to help me find gifts. I found gifts from an Old Navy gift card, discounts on yoga classes, discounts on restaurants, beauty treatments and so much more! You can find discounts to many of your favorite stores which means you can stretch your dollars at Christmas. I came across a $100 voucher for only $44 to shop at iShopNation where the buyer can find everything they need for your iPod, iPhone, iPad and Macbook. That would be an amazing gift! I also browsed the kid’s category and found deals on books and educational items.
If you are planning a trip start on the Mastercard MarketPlace. When you click on travel and hospitality you will be taken to a list of discounts and offers.
I also was simply shown who has great deals right now. For example one of the listings was for Target. It was sending me to their site where I could get buy one get one 50% toys. I would not have known about this deal if not for the MarketPlace. When you click on “GET OFFER” you are taken to the landing site. At that point you can purchase the deal, gift card or shop and use the sale or discount that was advertised on Mastercard MarketPlace.
So now what did I find to cross off my list? I found a $50 Voucher for RedEnvelope that I could purchase for only $25. More for my money! I didn’t purchase from the MasterCard MarketPlace. Instead I clicked on “Get Offer” and was taken to a site I didn’t know existed, Gilt City. YEAH! I purchased the voucher from that site. I used my Mastercard to complete the purchase. Super fast and easy!
In the “Other Offers” section you can find National Deals like this. Now I have $50 to spend on this last gifts. For me, $50 will go a long way. Knowing that I only paid $25 makes me very happy! Time to go cross those last friends and teachers off my list!
You can find great deals, discounts and coupons also! Keep in mind that each day the offers change so if you see something you like grab it then! Save time and visit the MasterCard MarketPlace to help you cross the rest of the people off of your list today!
