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.

Amazon has a great deal for books through Tuesday: use code HOLIDAY30 to save 30% off one book, up to $10 off.

Frontier Airlines One-Way Flights As Low As $19

Frontier Airlines is having a Cyber Monday sale with one-way flights starting at $19 and no blackout dates!  Granted, there aren’t many that are actually $15 but many are less than $60.  Prices are slightly cheaper if you are a member of their discount club (which requires an annual fee).  Check out all the details here.

Broncos Deals at Arby’s, King Soopers, Papa John’s are on for Monday

Just a reminder that since the Broncos won on Sunday, you can pick up a free donut at King Soopers today (November 30).  It’s valid the day after any game that they win, and is limited to one per Sooper Card.

At, you can use code BRONCOS to get 50% off your regular-priced order (it won’t work if you have any specials in your cart).  This is also valid today only.

And, since they scored three or more touchdowns, Arby’s is doing $1 roast beef sandwiches today.

(Jack in the Box offers tacos for $0.35 when they kick a field goal of 35 yards or more (limit six).  However, that condition wasn’t met yesterday so that deal is not on today.)

Free Storytimes, Workshops, and Classes for Kids in December

There’s a variety of places that do a free or cheap event for kids every month: from crafts to storytime to cooking classes, be sure to check out the following places for their events that are going on each month.   Note that with the holidays, some places may not have all the events they usually do.

And of course, the Pikes Peak Library District has dozens of events every month – you can view their calendar here.

If you know of other places that offer monthly events for kids that are free or very cheap, please do comment and let me know or email me here!

Free Saturday Movies at Focus on the Family

The Focus on the Family Welcome Center will open up their doors for free movies on Saturdays in December!  They’ll be serving popcorn and a family-friendly movie on the first three Saturdays in December – go here for the schedule and movie selection.

Real Life


Got my milk before it’s sold out in advance of the storm.


Current salad favorite: apples, cheddar, and bacon with romaine.  (I dress it with a quick mix of mayo, olive oil, lemon juice, shallots, and salt and pepper.)  Inspiration from the Local Mouthful podcast.


I keep a commonplace book, writing down quotes that I find memorable, inspirational, or thought-provoking as I listen to audiobooks. (Currently listening: Hard Times by Dickens.)
