Disclaimer for Vendors: BEAR Bargains does not send out advertisements or coupons on behalf of vendors – and cannot provide community members with flyers or coupons detailing your organization’s discount, nor will we provide any email addresses of community members for you to contact them directly. BEAR Bargains discounts are sustained discounts and should be considered permanent until the vendor decides to amend them. Vendors should not list with this program if they want to simply promote a one-off deal or daily special the company is offering.
