Denver Deal: CardGnome, Summer Concerts, AMF Bowling, Rapids Soccer & Staples
I honestly like Father’s Day a bit better than Mother’s Day, maybe it is because I can give my dad a card, take him fishing or to a baseball game and he seems to be really happy with that. I am excited to take him to lunch this year. One of our favorite places, Bud’s, is not at all like the upscale brunch we had for Mother’s Day. But I will say, either way food is involved which makes us all happy! Happy Father’s Day to all the dads. Treat them special on their day – Sunday, June 17, 2012!
In other fun news, I will learn this week what Safeway4U is all about. I will let you all know later this week what I find out. Right now, I can tell you register online and be sure to get your coupons (which are specifically designed for what you buy most often) – when I did I scored some great deals including free eggs and sales on a lot of other things I buy regularly.
FREE Father’s Day Card
Father’s Day is coming on Sunday, June 17. CardGnome.com (a local company) is offering a free Father’s Day card.

Available for purchase for $10 while supplies last, the BTS Savings Pass is valid until Sept. 15 for use once a day on supplies such as pens, pencils, paper notebooks and backpacks.
