Thanks to the local paper, the Colorado Springs Gazette, for the mention in the “Tip Jar” section this morning! If this is your first visit to SpringsBargains.com, welcome – I hope you’ll stick around and let me know about any deals you see in our beautiful city!
Saw this in the “Tip Jar” in the Gazette this morning and found out it’s a nationwide promotion:
Drop off any pair of your gently worn jeans to any AÃ©ropostale store between January 26th and February 22nd and we’ll make sure they get donated to a local homeless shelter or charity. To say thanks, AÃ©ropostale will give you an additional 25% off your next pair of jeans.
Sounds like a great way to get a discount and help somebody out at the same time! Find out more at TeensForJeans.com.
Free coffee and breakfast samples at local Panera Bread stores all day tomorrow. Do you think that means they’ll supply endless coffee for you all day if you decide to “work-from-Panera” tomorrow?
Page 11A of the Denver Post yesterday had this coupon for Salvation Army Family Stores:
There’s no locations listed so I would imagine it would be valid in Colorado Springs even though I only saw it in the Denver paper. I am a little confused, though – is it 50% off your entire purchase M-W only?
The Friends of the Pikes Peak Library District will be holding their Friends Book Sale this coming weekend at the East Library (5550 N. Union). It’s open for Friends members and educators only on Friday, January 30 from 4-7 PM and to the general public on Saturday the 31st from 9 AM to 4 PM. On Sunday, February 1st they’ll have a $5 bag sale from 11 AM to 3 PM.
I don’t see much else to get excited about at King Soopers this week, so here’s what I’m buying at the “Mega Sale”. Not many free or really cheap deals like we had at the last similar event, but some great prices on things I haven’t seen on sale in a long time, like cheese. Other Kroger regions have other items included in the sale that are not listed in the King Soopers ad, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled in the store for more participating items. I’ll update if I find more!
Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese $.79 – Cheesecake, here I come!
Kraft Mayo $2.49 – Use $.75/1 coupon to get for $1.49
Kraft Velveeta $4.38 – Use $1 insert coupon or printable to get this for $3.38
Heinz Ketchup $1.49 – I *think* I’ve gotten this cheaper during the summertime, but picnic supply-type sales are still a couple of months away so I’ll replenish my stash with enough to last until them (Even being the dedicated Republican that he is, Jeremy will not eat anything but Heinz!)
Orville Redenbacher’s Microwave Popcorn $1.69 – Use $1/2 to get this for $1.19 each. Not sure if this is a stock-up price or not.
General Mills Chex Mix $1.69 – Use all of those $.50/1 Chex Mix coupons that are cluttering up your coupon organizer to get these for $.69. Here is where I reminisce about the “good old days” (like a year ago) when Chex Mix would go on sale for $1 and you could get it free. Haven’t seen that in foreeeeeever, though.
Green Giant Steamers $1.09 – Use $1/1 or $.50/1 to get these for $.09! (Albertson’s puts these on sale for $1 every couple of months and then you can get them for free, but they always run out and it’s a pain to remember to redeem rainchecks. I’ll pay nine cents and save a trip to a different store!)
Kraft Cheese $1.49 – Finally, a sale on name-brand cheese! This is a great price. I usually buy cheese at Sam’s, but this is a better deal: store-brand mild cheddar is $2.45/lb at Sam’s, and name-brand cheddars go up from there. Now, if only there were some coupons to go with it…
There may be some Shortcuts or CellFire coupons to go with these or some of the other items, but come on – you have to do SOME of the work yourself. ;) And remember to be on the lookout for blinkies or peelies to make these deals even sweeter!
Just talked to someone at the Salvation Army and the new store off Tutt Blvd between North Carefree and Barnes is scheduled to open “by March 15th”. The store’s finished, so I guess they’re just waiting to fill ‘er up with great deals. You can drop off donations at their other locations – based on what they told me, they’ll be open as soon as the store’s stocked so donate donate donate! :)
And to show you how long it’s been since I’ve been thrifting, I asked when the two stores slated to close (West Colorado Avenue (the “boutique”) and South Weber) were closing and found out they have already closed. Now I’m left to wonder if I missed out on any great clearance sales, or maybe they just transferred the goods to other stores.
