Neighborhood Week in Harvard Square

By now you guys probably know how much I love a good deal.  Or coupon.  Or saving.  Read on…

Did you know that BuyWithMe is celebrating Harvard Square by giving away a few offers each day this week through Sunday October 9th for different businesses in the area?  5% of all proceeds from Neighborhood Week will be donated to the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter in honor of the Harvard Square Business Association’s 100th anniversary.

When I found out about Harvard Square Neighborhood Week, I was thrilled.  Harvard Square is one of my favorite city spots to walk around and hang out in.  It’s pretty, historical, fun, and a quick bus ride from my apartment!  Plus, they have soooo many good restaurants and bars.

Check out some of the deals BuyWithMe has offered this week – it’s not too late to purchase them!
