carrie isaacWelcome to Springs Bargains, a service of our real estate business, The Circa Group at RE/MAX Properties! I'm Carrie, and I share ways to enjoy Colorado Springs for free or cheap, including cheap and family-friendly events and things to do, weekly grocery deals, and more.

Free Birthday Meal at Tucano’s (Now Via Email or App)

Be prepared for an onslaught of free food  on your birthday if you sign up for your favorite restaurants’ e-clubs – most of them send a free meal coupon a week or two before your birthday!  Here’s a link to all the ones that I know about.

Tucano’s is one restaurant that gives a totally-free meal, and they used to send a postcard.  However, they’ve just changed that and they’ll now send them via email or through their app.  So, if you’re not already signed up for their eclub, go here to join so that you can get your free birthday meal!


Kids Eat Free with This Coupon at Olive Garden

Through April 23rd, kids can get a free meal at Olive Garden when you fill out the form here to get a coupon!  It requires the purchase of an adult entree, and it’s limited to two free meals with corresponding adult entree purchases.  Thanks, Money Saving Mom.


50% Off Clearance Sale at NYJD (Castle Rock Outlets)

The Not Your Daughter’s Jeans outlet in Castle Rock is having sale through April 20th: all clearance is 50% off and straight-leg jeans are 30% off.


Colonial Living History Days (in Denver) Coming Up April 24th & 25th

Just a reminder that this event will take place next week!

This event is a bit of a drive (it’s in Westminster), but it’s so unique and well-done that it’s worth a drive, in my opinion!  Living History Days will take place April 24th and 25th at KPOF Radio Station in Westminster, reliving events at Fort Watson in South Carolina in 1781.  They’ll have battle reenactments, a drama, and more hands-on activities.  Here’s a preview:

Admission is $3 for ages four and up, with a maximum admission charge of $15 per family.  There are optional activities for kids that require an additional fee and pre-registration; see information on that here.  They are already starting to fill up for these events, so don’t delay if you want to sign up for one of the extra activities.

You can see photos and video from previous events and get much more information on the Living History Days website.
