Denver Deal: Veteran’s Day Deals, Free Days, Starbucks, and More

I recently went to a fun Detective Dinner with my kids that we booked through Vimbly.com. Vimbly offered MileHighMamas a gift certificate to try out the service. It was simple to choose a fun and interactive event to participate in (I will write a post shortly about our night). The choices were plentiful from exploration, adventure, eating, drinking and more. The process for making our choice, registering, checking out and what I liked best was the reminder emails.

Denver Deal: Noodles, Chili’s, Kneaders and More

How early do your kids start thinking of what they will be for Halloween? At what age do they stop trick or treating? I sort of miss the cute trick or treating days (my kids at 14 and 15 years old have no intention to trick or treat this year – but are already plotting their costumes). I typically purchase candy that I like to eat in case I don’t hand it all out. But maybe I shouldn’t do that and my waist wouldn’t feel the effects. I recently read a post on facebook that some neighbors are trying to be conscientious about the neighbor kids peanut allergies and gluten free diets. Is this something you care about?

Noodles. Noodles is celebrating their 20th anniversary with 20 days of giveaways. The first of which is on Oct 20 you get a free mac and cheese with the purchase of another entree. Noodle lovers enjoy!

Chili’s. Chili’s is celebrating the Presidente margarita’s 21st birthday with $5 margaritas and 21-cent chips and salsa. OMG. Their chips are the BEST! (You can even buy the chips without the margarita).

Fab’rik women’s boutique, in Aspen Grove, invites you for a private shopping night hosted by the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley  on October 22 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Enjoy drinks & mini cupcakes while you shop. Plus 20% of net sales of full priced items from the event will be donated to benefit the fuzzy animals at the shelter.

Kneaders Bakery and Cafe. My daughter and I went to the newest Kneaders on Friday after my son’s football game. My daughter called it a “fast-food Cracker Barrel.” I am guessing she said that because there is a (Hallmark-like) shop. The menu is primarily sandwiches, salads, and soups with a ton of bakery items as well (my daughter said the pumpkin cookie was great). I understand we should go back for the french toast (we didn’t get there in time for the free meal). Englewood location at 9846 Zenith Meridian Dr will open Friday, October 23 – the first 100 customers will receive a complimentary meal of Kneaders’ famous French toast on their first day of business.

Denver Deal: McDonalds, Sonic, Driver Training, Consignments and More

I’m sort of obsessed with mail. I love getting mail. I subscribe to a bunch of magazines and get so excited when they arrive. I have even joined some of those “of the month” clubs.

Each month they focus on a country or region and we get to taste a few goodies from that location. It is lots of fun to have an at home learning experience.

Denver Deal: Qdoba, McDonalds, Free Days and More

I have been a guest to several shows at the Denver Center for a couple years now. There are some shows that stick out in my mind such as the big-name ones like Wicked and Annie!

I really liked Peter and the Starcatcher a couple years ago, and The 12 earlier this year.  That is why I’m very excited to see LookingGlass Alice. The show is supposed to be about Alice’s trip down the rabbit hole. The description says it is funny and imaginative transporting audiences down the rabbit hole to a circus-infused playground. It is only here September 11 through October 11 and tickets are part of the Denver Center’s reduced-price ticket program.

Ski Deals So Great They Will Make You Squeal

Nothing makes me squeal more like a teenager than the two words Snowboarding and Deals. And I will totally go ga-ga when they are in a sentence together! That is why I love Labor Day weekend! The unofficial weekend of ski sales in the Denver area.

Vail Epic Ski Kids. Vail Resorts (Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone) are offering a free pass for Colorado Residents in Kindergarten through 5th Grade. The pass allows kids to ski/snowboard four times at each of their resorts. You must go to a Colorado Ski & Golf, Ski and Sport or Boulder Sports in person with your kiddo to fill out paperwork. You also have to bring a recent photo (head shot) of your kids. The program includes a free first-timer lesson and equipment rental on that day.

Fifth and Sixth Grade Passport. Colorado Ski Country announced it will offer the 5th and 6th Grade Passport again this year. The program is a mail-in program. The fifth graders get three free days of skiing/snowboarding at each of  20 member resorts (Winter Park, Copper, Crested Butte, Steamboat Springs, Eldora, Arapahoe Basin, Aspen, Snowmass, Loveland etc.). Sixth Graders is super inexpensive at just $99 for four days at each of the 20 member resorts. The program includes a free lesson and rental equipment on the day of the lesson. Bonus, this program is also supported by Chipotle and as I recall, they sent out some coupons for buy one get one free at Chipotle too!

Junior Trade. Colorado Ski and Golf (Ski and Sport) locations offer the Junior Trade Program. Basically you purchase ski or snowboard equipment. The budget friendly packages start at just $99 (again this is not season rental – it is you buying used kids sized equipment). Then if you choose to return the equipment at the end of the season (or trade up for a larger size) you get 1/2 the money back. Just to put this into perspective about how inexpensive this is a day rental usually runs just over $25. So it totally pays for itself in four times (and if you return it – it pays for itself in just two times) on the mountain. As your kids grow you can bring the equipment back and get bigger sizes to fit their growth.

SniagrabSniagrab (“bargains” spelled backwards) is the world’s largest ski and snowboard sale, offering up to 90% off original prices on previous seasons’ ski and snowboard equipment, winter apparel and accessories starting Labor Day weekend. The sale features merchandise from top brands.

One customer will receive $500 in Bonus Bucks. Customers must be in line prior to 7:30am. Spend $300 or more on September 5 or September 6 will receive a Sports Authority cash card (worth $25 when purchase is $300-$399.99; $50 when purchase is $500-$699.99; $75 when purchase is $700 or more). Ten customers will win an Epic Local Pass or Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus, valued up to $579 per pass. Customers can enter to win September 5–7 only at the Sports Authority Colorado locations listed below. One customer will win a Mountain Getaway Package for Two, that includes a Winter Park Lodge Pass, 2 single-day Winter Park lift tickets, and 2 ski or snowboard rentals at Sports Authority.

Denver Deal: Free Days, Health Event, Theater and More

I am going to be a home owner! I just learned that I won the bid on a HUD home. I have to say I love the term “won bid.” It makes me giggle a little – a little like I won the lotto or something (which I also played this week since I had a pretty fantastic week). Owning a house also scares me. I am a deals blogger so I will be looking to do all kinds of updates on this house – all within a pretty tight budget. I have become obsessed with HGTV and DIY shows. I keep checking prices of updates on HomeAdvisor.com. They have this fancy cost estimator.

Denver Deal: IHOP, Sonic, 7-Eleven, Lowe’s, Ace and More

I used to fancy myself as a bit of a fee spirit – not really conforming to schedule and rigidity. However it was recently pointed out to me that I am more and more a schedule person. I think being a mom has really turned me into that. I have to know which child is going where, what they need (even though they are teens and typically pack it themselves – but sometimes we have to go to the store to buy stuff) and I usually write the cool FREE events I write about here on my calendar. If I don’t have my calendar up we might miss something. I guess some things DO change.

IHOP.  IHOP is celebrating 57 years in business July 7 with 57 cent short stack of pancakes.

Denver Deal: Zpizza, Burger King, Estate Planning and More

Writing this blog is fun! I love telling you all about deals and great free fun times. But sometimes, there are serious issues that we all as parents need to be aware of – the State of Colorado implemented a statewide hotline to report suspected child abuse and neglect – 1-844-CO-4-KIDS. The statewide hotline is the result of Governor Hickenlooper’s Child Welfare Plan “Keeping Kids Safe and Families Healthy.” The hotline serves as a direct, immediate and efficient route to Colorado’s 64 counties and two tribal nations, which are responsible for accepting and responding to child abuse and neglect inquiries and reports. All callers speak with a call-taker 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
