Frontier Airlines is having a sale on fares booked through March 5th for select flights from March 9th-April 29th: you can fly from DIA to Dallas Fort Worth, Kansas City, Omaha, and Salt Lake City for $39!

Tucano’s Brazilian Grill is celebrating National Reading Week by offering a free kid’s meal to a child under 12 years old when you donate a children’s book. (Children six and under are normally free with a paying adult.) Or, if your child is six or under, they can get a free dessert instead.
The offer is valid from March 2nd through March 6th, and you can see it on their website here.
Here’s a discount on a Sam’s Club membership – relatively rare in that it’s valid on renewals, too! (They did have a $20 gift card deal in January, so maybe this will be a more regular thing.) You can get a free rotisserie chicken and a $5 gift card when you join or renew in-club and present the email that they’ll send you when you sign up here. It’s valid through April 1st or “while supplies last”.
The Whole Foods store on North Academy will be celebrating their 11th anniversary with “free food, music, kids crafts, raffles, face painting, and more” on Saturday, March 7th from 12 PM to 4 PM! They do one of these events every year and one year a Springs Bargains reader won a cart full of free groceries! I don’t know if they are doing that particular giveaway this year, though.
They also have these upcoming free classes:
March 5th: Backyard Chickens class with Buckley’s. Learn how to raise backyard chickens from 6-7:30 PM at the Whole Foods Market on N. Academy.
March 24th: Leaf People skincare lecture. Learn how to have radiant and beautiful skin during every season of the year from 1-2:30 PM.
March 24th: Garden of Life rejuvenation lecture. Learn about beauty and health on the inside through organic nutrition from 6-7 PM.
March 31st: Cheese Nights! Learn about sustainable cheeses and taste the craftsmanship of cheeses made from companies who are committed to care for the earth from 5:30-6:30 PM.
All of these events take place at the Whole Foods Market at 7635 North Academy.

Ask A Realtor
My husband and I have decided that we are likely going to sell our house in the next year and a half. We have four kids and three pets and the same carpet that came with our house when it was built 16 or so years ago. Do we replace the carpet now (so we can enjoy it), when we go to sell the house (so that it stays relatively clean), or do we not bother?
