We're excited to tell you about a new money-saving service here in Cedar Rapids. TapOnIt texts you deals to local businesses.

You don't need to clip coupons, hunt through your emails for discounts or pay more because you don't want to deal with the hassle. A few times a week, TapOnIt texts you offers that you can share with friends and family to unlock bonus offers, all of which you can redeem right at local businesses.

It's really easy (and fun) but it's serious business for the sisters who started it in the Quad Cities. The company's mission is "to be the leader in mobile database development, management and monetization through our innovative digital platforms."

They're celebrating their expansion into the Cedar Rapids area with a giveaway:For a limited time, when you sign up you can enter to win a $500 Hy-Vee gift card.
