about LivingSocial:

Pay it Forward: 2 Minutes to Make Someone’s Year

The submissions for our Holiday Hero Contest are inspiring!

Do you have a hero that you want to nominate? Here is how:

You send us a 1-2 minute video telling us about the Holiday Hero in your life, and then they are in the running to win up to $3500 Deal Bucks to spend on LivingSocial. (second: $1000 in Deal Bucks and third place: $500 in Deal Bucks)

What exactly are Deal Bucks? Deal Bucks are LivingSocial account credits. Once Deal Bucks are placed in your account, they’re automatically applied toward your next purchase(s) so you don’t have to worry about any extra steps while checking out. That’s the deal with Deal Bucks.

What are Deal Bucks good for? DBs (as we call them) can be used towards the purchase of almost any LivingSocial deal. Travel – Jewelry – Broadway shows – your Hero will THANK YOU!

For example, with $3500, our grand prize Holiday Hero could get a 7-day trip to magnificent Madrid and Costa del Sol for two. And yes, flights included. They could also use the $3500 DBs on spa, massage, and other “me” treats every week for an entire year. WOW!

Our second and third place prizes are pretty awesome too – would your hero like a long weekend at a B&B on the Californian coast or a blissful escape in Jamaica?

We can’t wait to see how our crowned Holiday Heroes will spend their Deal Buck fortunes.

Two minutes and a filming device (aren’t smart phones the best?) is all it takes to enter. Check out the terrific entry from Sofia below.

Act fast while we’re still accepting Holiday Hero nominations! Contest ends on December 31, 2013.
