Disclaimer: We post the deals as we find them. But you know the drill: Prices and promotions are subject to change at any time and without notice. If you think something sounds too good to be true, check with the merchant before you head out.
Chicago on the Cheap participates in affiliate programs. That’s how the bills get paid! Though the site earns some revenue if you buy a deal through one of our affiliate links, Chicago on the Cheap retains full editorial control over the deals posted. It limits the use of affiliate links to the types of deals routinely posted on the site.
