Dealcetera’s going LIVE!

That’s right, we have a brand new section for all of our Dealcetera readers, subscribers and members.
Introducing our Vlog - hosted by none other than Andrea. :D

I’m absolutely thrilled to introduce Andrea (dredudes) as our Dealcetera YouTube correspondent.

Andrea’s no stranger to Dealcetera or to YouTube.

She was our lucky winner in our very first contest. She was also our inspiration for our current contest when we received a response like none other when she took the time to feature her reward and Dealcetera in a YouTube video. And now she can call Dealcetera home as our resident vlogger. :D

As a YouTuber she goes by dredudes concentrating on her love for cosmetics, while expanding on deals and life’s random moments. Her videos are full of life and personality, offering tips and her perspective in a manner that’s very personable and inviting. If you haven’t checked her out, you should definitely do so.

For those unfamiliar, a vlog is a series of entries, much alike a blog, but in video form. Andrea will be keeping us all informed, right here on Dealcetera through a series of YouTube videos. Features will include product reviews, the latest sales and deals, her savings and I’m sure much more - so you’re going to want to tune in!  The vlogs will be incorporated into our main blog right here, but you can also check her out by clicking our Vlog tab above.

Without any further ado, please make Andrea feel welcome! :D

As the entries roll in and to thank all of you for taking the time to participate, I will be featuring them here on the blog.

Have YOUR chance to win $100! Grab your cell, (video) camera, web-cam - whatever you’ve got and share your love for shopping with us!

It's Dealcetera's 1 Year Anniversary! Show your YouTube Love & Win a $100 Shopping Spree on Us!

Ahhh! I’m excited. Today marks Dealcetera’s 1 year anniversary. :D

We have all of you to thank, for where we stand today. Being able to provide you guys with the best deals and having the great opportunity to interact with such a wonderful bunch both on the blog and on the forum has been an absolute pleasure. Here’s to many more!

For our regulars you may recall a series of contests we held over a number of weeks; awarding 6 lucky readers. One particular reader however showed her love for Dealcetera in a very special way. Andrea, the winner of our very first contest, winning a $15 Shoppers Drug Mart gift card, excitedly featured Dealcetera and her prize via YouTube.


…And she inspired me.

It’s your turn! Show your YouTube love!

We want all of you to show your love for Dealcetera and shopping by creating your own YouTube video.

We’re not looking for pros, just fun and entertaining videos. Get creative! Poems, songs, art pieces. Share YOUR tips with US! Feature your hottest buys, maybe even a mini fashion show showcasing your shopping steals. Interviews. Reviews. Take us on a shopping field trip and amaze us with your grand (or not so grand ;) ) total at the register after coupons. Those are just a few ideas but I’m sure you guys can think of plenty more. ;)

We’ll be awarding one lucky person a $100 gift card of their choice! Plus 2 secondary prizes!

Ahhh! Ok, so while watching the second to last ep of The Mole (shhh..), I saw it!

The first, of soon to be many teasers aired, promoting the return of Heroes; Spotlighting the iconic eclipse, casting a faint glimpse of Sylar and echoing the words, “The Darkness is Coming”.

I’m such a huge fanatic of the show - can’t wait! Heroes is expected to return September 22nd with a 3 hour season premiere.

Catch a glimpse of Season 3’s “Villains”. I’ve included more trailers after the jump - you didn’t think I’d leave you hanging, did ya? ;)
