I think with the new Balance Rewards program, we are seeing a lot less Register Reward deals. I’m hoping once this new program gets off the ground, we will see a few more. For this week, the best deals are on Robitussin and Zantac!

Here’s a couple of fun fall events that are coming up in October in Colorado Springs:
The annual Harvest Festival at Rock Ledge Ranch will be on Saturday, October 6th. They have lots of fun things to do, like a pumpkin patch, live music, pony and wagon rides, a candy scramble, and more. Admission to the ranch itself is free, but many of the activities do cost a little. (In the past, you could buy tickets for $0.25 each and then each activity required a certain number of tickets.)
We’ve been to this event before and it was really fun to see the ranch and the costumed historical characters, even though we didn’t do many of the “official” activities. You can find out more on the Rock Ledge Ranch Harvest Festival here.
Later in October is a great event in Old Colorado City: the annual Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off will be Saturday, October 20th from 10 AM to 6 PM. Pumpkin gardeners bring their giant pumpkins and gourds to be weighed at the Old Town Plaza and you can watch and get your picture with the huge pumpkins. Old Colorado City also usually has their Scarecrow Festival with dozens of Scarecrows lining the street at this same time.
Find out more about the pumpkin weigh-off here. We went to this event several years ago, and I’m hoping to go again since I’m sure my kids probably don’t remember it (and we’ve had three new babies since)!
King Soopers is having a 3-day sale today (Friday) through Sunday, and chicken leg quarters are just $0.69/lb!

The Rockies scored 10 runs yesterday so you know what that means: stop by participating Taco Bell locations from 4 to 6 PM today (the day after the game) to get your special Rockies deal! The deal varies by location, but is usually something like four tacos for $1 with the purchase of a drink, or four tacos for $2 with no drink purchase.
Most Taco Bells participate in the deal, but not all do, so it’s not a bad idea to call ahead to confirm that your favorite location participates. The Rockies deal is available the day after the Rockies score seven or more runs (win or lose).
Also, since the Rockies won, you can get 50% off your pizza order at PapaJohns.com with coupon code ROCKIES the day after the game. The code is valid on regularly-priced items only, and it apparently doesn’t work if you have any specials in your cart.
