List your special on our Buy Local Month page! The special can be any type of promotion, one that you're currently running for the holidays or one that you establish specifically to list on our page. The special should run from November 25 through January 1 to coincide with the length of our campaign.

Example: Purchase $100 in gift cards and get $25 free!

Submit Your Holiday Information for Editorial Consideration

Planning a holiday event, Black Friday or Cyber Monday promotions, or have a great idea for a holiday gift? Send your information to [email protected], and it will be considered by Local First Arizona editorial staff. Please note: submitting your information does not guarantee that it will be included in our promotions, but if you do not submit it, we won't know about it! The more in advance that you submit your information, the more likely it will be included.
