Disclaimer: I post the deals as I find them. 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.
National deals are only good at “participating locations.” You should always check with your preferred location to make sure they’re participating before heading out.
Affiliate Links: Some of the deals posted on Kansas City on the Cheap include affiliate links (e.g., Groupon, Living Social, Restaurant.com). What does that mean to you? Not much. The deal is still the same for you, and using our links won’t cost you any extra. What does that mean for us? We get a little bit of money for the referral.
As always, we will continue to post what we think are the best deals, whether or not they include an affiliate link. But like everyone else, we have to pay the bills. So if you do download a coupon or use our links to take advantage of a deal, thank you!
