Denver Post Subscription for $1/Week After Gift Card

Alice sent in a great tip for a very-rare-these-days deal on a subscription to the Denver Post: through Groupon, you can get a 20-week subscription to the Sunday-only Denver Post for $35, plus you’ll receive a $15 King Soopers gift card, which makes it $20 for twenty weeks or $1 per week.  As a newspaper with a large distribution list, the coupon inserts in it contain more coupons than other smaller newspapers, so it’s the best one to buy for the coupons in Colorado.

It is valid for new subscribers only (which means you must not have received home delivery in the past 30 days).  Please note that you must cancel the subscription or it will automatically renew.  The Denver Post has really gotten to be a booger about canceling and to be honest, it is really quite a pain!  I’m assuming that it will renew at the $35 price and you will not get another gift card.

$5.25 Zoo Admission for Military from September 8-14

Here is a great deal for military for the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo: from September 8th-14th, active duty and retired military personnel and their families can get admission for just $5.25 each!  This is a savings of $4 for kids and $9 for adults (those are the regular military admission prices), and it’s a very rare discount for our great zoo.

Find out more information here.  And for those of you who aren’t military, but still want to save, there are a couple of Cheyenne Mountain Zoo ticket discounts here.

Labor Day weekend is the time for the big ski and snowboard sales at Sports Authority and Colorado Ski and Golf!  Sports Authority has their “Sniagrab” sale (bargains spelled backwards), with 40-90% off last year’s ski and snowboard equipment, winter apparel, and more.   At Colorado Ski and Golf, it’s Ski Rex; offering up to 75% off on the same.
