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-Price Vanilla Ice Cream Cones at Sonic on Monday

You can get vanilla ice cream cones for half price at Sonic this Monday, September 22nd, in honor of National Ice Cream Day!  I just called a local Sonic and the person that answered said that it was about $1.07 – I’m thinking that is for the cake cone and not the waffle cones (but I forgot to ask about the price of the waffle cones).  Thanks, Money Saving Mom!


$20 To Spend at Arc Thrift for $10

Thanks to Krystal for the heads up on this deal: you can get a $20 Arc Thrift Stores voucher for $10 through Living Social right now! I’m thinking that the best part of this deal is that it doesn’t seem to exclude the current color tags, which are never included in their 50% off sales.  It’s valid through the end of this year.

Go here to read more and purchase this deal.


Buy 1, Get 1 Free Autumn Drinks at Starbucks through Sunday

Starbucks is doing another buy one, get one free drink special through Sunday, September 21st: from 2 to 6 PM, get any fall drink (to include Pumpkin Spice Latte, Salted Caramel Mocha, or Oprah Chai) free when you buy one of equal or greater value.  This is valid on their fall drink line only, hot or cold; and is at participating stores only (most stores do seem to participate, though.)  See the official announcement hereThanks, Money Saving Mom!


Take A Tour of Dion’s Pizza

I posted about this about a year ago, but was reminded about it just now when I got an email from Dion’s: did you know that you can take a behind-the-scenes tour of the restaurant?  There’s a nominal charge, but I felt like it was well worth it considering the fact that you got pizza with it, as well!  Go here for more info.


Kids Eat Free at Olive Garden Monday-Thursday through End of September

Olive Garden is offering a coupon for a free kid’s meal with the purchase of an adult entree here.  It’s valid Monday-Thursday through September 28th, and is limited to two free kids’ entrees per table (must purchase one adult entree for each free kid’s entree).

Ask A Realtor: Buy Now Or Wait To Save A Larger Down Payment?

We have good credit and $8000 saved up for a down payment. Would this be the best time to buy a home? Or should we wait 1 year to get a bigger down payment (we should have about $25,000 by then) in your opinion will the interest rates rise enough in the next few months that a bigger down payment wont make much difference?
