Motor City Steals & Deals: 1/2 off Gift Certificates!

Motor City Steals & Deals is "your connection to incredible deals that get you HALF OFF or MORE from Metro Detroit businesses"! This website offers gift cards for area businesses (restaurants, entertainment, retail, salon/spa and more!) at 50% off their retail value.

Through Motor City Steals & Deals you have the opportunity to purchase, for example, a $50 gift Certificate for just $25 (plus shipping and handling fees) online through the Motor City Steals & Deals website. Your certificates are then mailed directly to you; you'll receive them within 7-10 business days.

The site is indeed legitimate; others have ordered, received their certificates and spent them without a problem. The steep discounts are offered simply because these businesses are looking to advertise. You can order up to 4 copies of each gift certificate, but note that in most cases they can't be combined (limit 1 per transaction).

The gift certificates offered will vary from month to month, but my favorite current deals include:

Some of my favorite Past offers (that have since sold out) include:

  • $25 for a $50 certificate to Blake Farms (orchard, etc)
  • $25 for a $50 certificate to Dream Dinners (valid at all 5 Metro Detroit locations)
  • Tickets to Stratford Shakespeare Festival, The Shrine Circus, and other events
  • Passes for the Oakland County Fair or The Fridge Toboggan Run
  • and that's just a few!
You may want to check the site occasionally as new certificates become available each month and some sell out quickly. Those that don't sell face reduced prices and are moved into the "Bargain Bin" for even more savings. What a great way to be able to afford a birthday gift for a friend or a night out with your spouse! :) Thanks, Janelle, for sharing this deal with us!


  1. I would agree with the comments on Dan Good Pizza! It is awesome and the slices are huge.

  2. I am also going to say if you haven't been to Dan's Pizza yet you are missing out on something great!

  3. Does anyone know how much the shipping and handling charges are?

  4. It varies slightly, depending on the item, but most follow this scale:
    1 certificate = $3.75 S/H
    2 certificates = $5.00 S/H
    3 certificates = $6.25 S/H
    4 certificates = $7.50 S/H

  5. I wish they would start doing email coupons like does, because if you only order one, the s/h is way too expensive, especially since stamps only cost .44.
