Partner With Us


Traditional online advertising is terrible! We’ll sell you banner ad space if you insist (see our advertising page for more details). But we’d much rather develop an individualized way to work with you — a partnership that advances your goals while bringing value to our readers.

A Few Reasons To Work With Us

Case study: American Express

Did you know that you can use American Express points to pay for everything you need for an entire vacation, from cruise tickets to a new bathing suit? Amex was looking for an engaging way to illustrate that to consumers. Enter Spot Cool Stuff. We developed an uber-cool trip for two adults using 150,000 points: going swimming with Whale Sharks on a car-less island off of Mexico. Our writer posted an explanation of the pay-with-points concept before he left. Then he sent tweets, Facebook updates and wrote reviews of the experience as he traveled.

In addition to fitting in with Amex’s current promotion, the evergreen content Spot Cool Stuff created keeps the buzz and traffic going. Check it out here!
