Welcome to Springs Bargains!

carrie isaacWelcome to Springs Bargains, now a service of our real estate business, The Circa Group at RE/MAX Properties! I'm still sharing Colorado Springs’ best bargains, including cheap and family-friendly events and things to do, weekly grocery deals, and more.

Half-Off Drinks at Caffe Communitas on Monday Morning

There’s a new coffee shop operating in the Marco’s pizza location at Chapel Hills and Briargate Parkway, and they’re offering a special deal on Monday, November 3rd: from 6:30-9:30 AM, get half-off all hot and iced drinks at Caffe Communitas when you mention their “late start, half-off” deal.

Cafe Communitas is located inside Marco’s Pizza at 9420 Briar Village Point.


Safeway Weekly Deals (10/29-11/4): Bagged Candy for $1.00-$1.50 + Good Deals on Red Bell Peppers, Froot Loops, Cheerios

Safeway has a great deal on Hershey’s, Nestle, or Mars fun-size candy: you can get it for as little as $1.00-$1.50 with a “buy five” and coupons.  They also have red bell peppers for $0.49, Froot Loops for $.67 after coupon, and original Cheerios for $0.99 after coupon.

Albertsons Weekly Deals (10/29-11/4): Awesome Deals on Tide, Charmin, Herbal Essences

Albertsons has a P&G deal where you get a catalina coupon for money on your next order, and it works out to be an awesome deal on Tide and Charmin (maybe other things, but I ran out of time to work out any other items).  I did the math three times to make sure it’s really as great of a deal as it looks – a large (100 oz) bottle of Tide for $4-5?!  There are quite a few other good deals, too (Herbal Essences, Pillsbury mixes, petite sirloin steaks).

King Soopers Weekly Deals (10/29-11/4): All Detergent $1.99, Progresso Soup $0.50, Free Yoplait + More

You can get All laundry detergent for $1.99, Progresso soup for $0.50, a cup of Yoplait Greek for free with their Friday coupon, Charmin bath tissue for $0.37/roll, and more great deals at King Soopers starting Wednesday!  (All of those prices are after coupons, of course.)

They also have turkey on sale for $0.69/lb, which will be their price through Thanksgiving.  I’m often asked what the best deal on a turkey is, so here’s a couple of tips: turkeys will almost certainly not go on sale for a good deal at Christmas, so to get the best deal, you’ll definitely want to buy one by Thanksgiving if you want one for after Thanksgiving.

Also, I think it was last year that stores started putting turkeys on sale at the beginning of November and the price was valid through Thanksgiving Day.  That’s the case with King Soopers’ price, and Sam’s has advertised that their price is also valid through Thanksgiving.  I haven’t seen a “through Thanksgiving” price from Albertsons or Safeway yet.  But, just a heads up that there’s not usually a last-minute sale on turkeys.  (Additionally, no one starts a new sale on the day before Thanksgiving, so the prices from the week before Thanksgiving are usually valid through Thanksgiving Day.)

I’ll be doing a list with comparisons on the prices of common items (turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, pies, etc.) at King Soopers, Safeway, Albertsons, Sprouts, Sam’s, and possibly Walmart and Costco when it gets closer.
