Once again, out of the 5 "deals" you mention, 3 are from chains. I know they're the first ones you can find by searching online, so it's easy, but wouldn't it be nicer for the community if you highlighted deals from local businesses instead? You may have to make some phone calls, but the $ would stay in San Leandro.
