Whether you’re a tourist, a visitor attending a convention, or a local resident looking for something to do or some place to eat, Chicago on the Cheap makes it easy to find the best deals in Chicago. Welcome and enjoy.
Chicago on the Cheap is part of the Living on the Cheap network, a group of local websites published by more than 20 professional writers and frugalistas.
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.
Do you know about a good deal? Email us the who, what, when, where and how much at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let us know if you are the merchant or organization offering the deal or a customer passing on a tip.
If you find any broken links or other problems with our site, please email email@example.com.
If you’d like me to speak to your group about fun ways to save money in Chicago, please email firstname.lastname@example.org I’d be happy to come in and talk to your group for free if you’re in the city and for travel expenses if you are further out.
