Introducing Step Out Buffalo Deals!

We recently launched the all new Step Out Buffalo Deals section on our website, a place where the WNY community can go to find out all the great deals, happy hours, specials, and everything in between that local businesses are offerings.

Why are SOB Deals great for businesses?

Short answer: They're a great way to drive traffic to your physical location and/or website and thus, drive your profits.

People are always looking for the best deals, and people that are actively looking for something are the ones who are going to spend money on it. SOB Deals are a single resource where people can go to find the best offerings from both their favorite businesses and ones they haven't discovered yet - so putting your business on it is a great way to stay top of mind with loyal customers and get in front of new ones.

How Can You Submit A Deal For Free?

SOB Deals are a great way to get new customers by offering an actionable deal for our readers to take advantage off, and as an introductory special you can submit up to 3 Deals for your business for free ($75 Value)! Simply create an account on Step Out Buffalo and enter code threefree to get 3 free deal listings when submitting your deals. Once your deal is approved you'll be notified when it goes live, and that means it's officially on the Step out Buffalo website!

Once you submit a deal, it will be up on our website for 30 days at which point they will expire. We encourage you to make your deal something you already offer (and will be offering for at least the next 30 days) to ensure expired offers won't be found by SOB Readers. Check out our deals page for some examples.


As with everything in life, make sure you're putting your best foot forward on your Deal listings. You want to share helpful, relevant information about your business and what you're offering to make sure people take action on it.

Here's a couple pro-tips:

  1. A SOB Deal should be a special you are currently offering. It can be a coupon, percentage off discount, bogo special, or numerous other specials like a happy hour. The better the deal the better the response!

  2. A Deal needs to be an actual deal and include some type of savings to customers. A simple “we’re open for business” will not be published.
