One thing that may help Bitcoin take off would be a coupon book for discounts at stores that take Bitcoins. I saw a coupon book for sale for $5 with a bunch of great deals. I have purchased books for as much as $20 knowing that I would be able to get half off at some decent places. A coupon book where you get the discount when you use Bitcoins may be a decent thing to try out.

Also, to get local Bitcoin use going, a Groupon type of setup would be decent. The way Groupon works is that you pay up front for a local service at a considerable discount. The retailer gets paid up front and honors the vouchers. This could easily be done in Bitcoin. Even for businesses that do not accept Bitcoin.

I am eagerly waiting for something like this to come out. I am unfortunately to busy working on my own projects to build something like this, but GLBSE sure as hell needs something like this.

LEASE THIS SIGNATURE OUT WEEKLY/MONTHLY.

PM ME FOR DETAILS

Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

Funny you should mention that for I was thinking about that same thing today, again (I believe I've mentioned something like this a couple months back). The reason for rethinking it is because I received in the mail a magazine size/type deal with pages of coupons for local business, with most of the restaurants have 50% off any meal when using their coupon. As I flipped the pages, I kept thinking to myself how Bitcoin could be incorporated into all this.

Another thing is this:

Quote

One of our local restaurants has these coffee cups advertising local business (nearby the restaurant). My insurance agent has an ad on those cups. I spoke with the rep over a year ago when they were delivered, but didn't get a price (didn't ask), although he tried to sell me on the idea by saying the cost is reasonable. I believe their website may provide an answer.

Just thinking out loud, here.
