Want to grow your Las Vegas business? Free ad opportunity!!

My name is Fiona, Las Vegas Coupon Momma, and I am part of We are a free local online website that helps other people here in the valley to save on their grocery bills.

More thank likely you are reading this post because you are a local business looking to build your client base. Lots of small businesses have a shoe string size budget and any help for advertisements. Since we are both local companies and we both want to grow our businesses. I have a business proposal for free advertising! Yes, free and I would do all the work for you! It is a great way to drive new customers to your site and our site. No, is not a joke and it is for real!

A few times a week, our customers log onto this site to create their shopping lists. In the middle of the page, there is a drop down box. This is where they click on the store they want to shop at and they are ready to make this lists. Here is an example of this week's list for Smiths. As you can see in the upper right corner, is my ad.

Guess what! I can change it up and have your logo on it! So every time a customer of ours prints out their lists, this badge or logo is always there. Here is an example: 


What I would do is pull the logo off your site and draft up an ad for you. Like your shopping list was provided by: (your business name here). You are more than welcome to add a special deal. For example: Turn this slip in for XYZ deal. Or whatever you would like it to say. It is totally optional but people love deals on our site! Just let me know what you want to do or don't want to do, and we can customize it for you.

You are wondering what the catch is, free advising? The only think we ask if you provide a direct link on your website, Facebook page, Twitter, any other social medias, and any mailers. On your newsletters and websites just have like a tab, link or picture that has this our link active. Then, your customers can click on the link and go to this page, with your ads there.

Thank you for your time and please let me know if you are interested. Then we can start drafting up your ad on our site. Please email me at

Say What?? Couponing Lingo

I use many different acronyms on Las Vegas Coupon Momma. This guide is a reference to help you understand the lingo associated with couponing. Once you start seeing it on a regular becomes natural!

These are the basic ones you will see me and many other couponers use on their posts:

* $1.00/1, $2.00/1, etc: One dollar off one product, two dollars off one product, etc.
* Blinkie: A machine found at grocery stores that spits out coupons.
* BOGO: Buy one, get one.  Will usually end with “free” or “half off” meaning buy one, get one half off, or buy one get one free.
* B1G1, B2G1: Another way to write ‘buy one, get one’.  The “B” stands for “buy”, the G stands for “get”. B1G1= Buy one, get one.    B2G1= Buy two, get one B2G2= Buy two, get two
