    A good friend of mine recently launched a website for Portland folks which allows them to purchase random goods and services at pre-negotiated discounts. Knowing how difficult it is to get a website off the ground, I told him to go ahead and write a little about it and I'd post it here for you deal lovers :thumbup:

    Very cool, got it bookmarked. :thumbup:

    Kind of like a woot.com, but better. It's local, and you get tiered discounts depending on how many orders are placed. I'll be checking daily!

    Hey Guys!

    Thanks for the support, I hope you enjoy the deals - maybe not today's tanning deal, but we got some other good ones coming up. If you have any suggestions please let me know!

    Rock On,

    Andy

    Hi Kenr74,

    Similar concept with the main difference being that Palooz.com wants to support the community and local businesses. Palooz is able to get a lot of quality businesses and establishments over Groupon due to their high costs.

    Plus we're local too...:)

    All the Best,

    Andy

    I just wanted to pop in and let everyone know that this is very cool and legit! I was curious after I purchased a palooz and it said to just bring a copy of the email into the business. Today I went to 'Next Adventure' got a cool compact sleeping bag and binoculars and sure enough they accepted my email printout! I should've bought more! :D

    Anyways, very cool, excited for more.

    Hi Wavo,

    Thanks for the feedback and I'm glad you enjoyed your experience. I have too much fun when I go into that store. I'll be sure to let Joey know when we're having another Next Adventure deal.

    Cheers!

    They have such an amazing selection. Camping gear, clothes, frisbees, seriously practically everything you could want for surviving outdoors. And if they don't have something, go one block over to Andy & Bax (surplus store) and they might have it!
