Join the DuckDuckDeal Treasure Hunt tomorrow at 4

You’ve heard of DuckDuckDeal, right? You’re following them on Twitter, aren’t you? Liked them on Facebook? (Link goes harmlessly to DuckDuckDeal’s Info page. Link is not a Like link. External Like links can DIAF.) Have you got their iPhone App?

OK, more context. I follow them on Twitter via mobile device, so at intervals throughout the day I get text messages on my phone telling me that, for instance, ModMarket was offering a bottle of wine and a pizza for $10 until 6 PM to customers brave enough to utter the password “duckduck” at the register. That’s a dang good deal, one I regret not having followed up on either time I saw it go active.

Another one I regret forgoing was yesterday’s Treasure Hunt Kick-Off. I saw them tweet its imminent approach while I was busy distressing my thighs with an unaccustomed number of squats in the cause of helping with the eggplant transplanting initiative over at Abbo. (They’re in the ground. They’re already flowering. Stay tuned for the CSA eggplant cornucopia and Niki’s Favorite “I Don’t Like Eggplant” eggplant parmesan recipe.) By the time the clue hit the intarwebs and the treasure-hunters hit the street, I was sacked out in bed being not much good to the world. (Sorry, world.)

So. Congrats to Monday’s Clue #1 winner, who snagged a $50 gift certificate to Japango (dang!) and released a piece of treasure map unto Boulder.

The next clue goes public tomorrow, Wednesday, July 21st at 4:00 PM. It will be revealed exclusively on Facebook. (Don’t worry; the DuckDuckDeals Wall is public. I don’t think you need a Facebook account to play.)

I’m in – are you?

    $10 for a pizza and bottle of wine (label: barefoot) is a daily happy hour special at ModMarket. M-F until 6PM, I believe!!

    Just learned about it myself, thanks to DuckDuckDeal

    Modmarket offers the deal ($10 for a pizza and bottle of Barefoot wine) from 3-6 pm Monday to Wednesday. The cool thing is you don’t have to drink the whole bottle – you can have a glass and cork the rest to take home.

    That’s awesome – I didn’t know it was a recurring deal. I thought it was just a random one-shot thing. I wonder if that’s true of many others of DuckDuckDeal’s deals – that DDD is basically shedding light on local restaurants’ existing regularly scheduled deals?

    Congrats to today’s winner, btw – I was downtown on foot/bus, so completely in the wrong area to compete. Good luck everyone on Clue #3!

    The deals on DuckDuck are a mix. Some of them are recurring – happy hours, lunch specials, daily specials – but short of walking past a restaurant/bar and seeing the sign, these deals can be pretty tough to find out about.

    There are also a good number of exclusive and one-time offers that merchants put out only on DuckDuck.

    On another note – are there any Android users on here who would like to try a pre-release beta of our new android app? Email me at andrea (at) duckduckdeal (dot) com
