Win $25 Gift Certificate In Our Shopping Tip Contest

Just let us know about a good deal in town in the comment section below and maybe you'll be this week's winner.

Each week until the end of the year, Patch is running a shopping tip contest.

All you need to do is offer a shopping tip in the comment section below and we’ll pick a winner at random each week.

Shopping tips can include sales or deals on anything: from supermarket bargains to sales on holiday gift items. And although we hope to find out about sales at local small businesses, large chain store deals are fine too.

Each week, we’ll announce a new winner, as well as list all of the great deals that were submitted to help you with your shopping.

For this week’s contest, all entries must be received by noon on Thursday, Dec. 15 (Eastern Time). This week’s prize: A $25 gift certificate to the bakery and cafe in the South End of Boston.

Please note: This contest is open to legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia who are 18 and older. You may enter as many times as you like. All winners will be selected in a random drawing.  Click here for complete Official Rules.

(This contest and article are being shared on the following Patch sites: South End, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Charlestown, Somerville, Medford and Malden.)

Locally, Boston Food Tours makes a great gift for the out of towner or the bostonite. Big Chain-GAP has an extra 40% off their sale merchandise!

I love to shop on line, but hate to pay shipping costs. I always check the websites freeshipping.org and retailmenot.com first and enter the promo codes to get free shipping, sometimes you can get money saving codes as well and double dip before checking out.

Boston swing central is selling gift certificates at bostonswingcentralcentral.org. $15 for a swing dance lesson and 3 hours of dancing to a live band. Cheaper than a movie and popcorn, and 3 times as long if your dancing feet hold out!
