Deals: Spring Break Deals, Colorado’s largest Easter Egg Hunt & More!

posted by:

Happy Spring! Spring is officially here – which means warm days outside, my favorite Easter candy (Cadbury Mini Eggs) and bored kids. Just kidding about the last one – sort of. We don’t usually make plans for a Spring Break trip. We take advantage of the fun stuff around Denver. This last weekend I dragged them to the Home Show (should we stay?) and Travel & Adventure Show (should we go?). At the very least it gave us something to do.
 
Let’s Be Chefs. It’s a daily battle: What’s for Dinner? Castle Rock mom Suzanne Hayen knows this routine all too well and that’s why she founded Let’s Be Chefs,  an app-based service that makes it easier to get dinner on the table. They make it simple to find new recipes that you’ll like, plan your dinners for the week, grocery shop, and cook. Their goal is to help you with as many of the repetitive tasks having to do with meal planning and cooking as possible. Bonus: Try it for FREE!
 
Get Deals with Cyphr. Did you know that companies like Groupon give customers a great deal but may actually hurt businesses by taking 50% of the profits? There’s a new kid in down who has figured out a fun way to support local businesses AND be rewarded for it! With Cyphr’s free app, you unlock local businesses you choose. Those businesses send you time-sensitive “Secrets.” If you see a Secret you want to use later, you just press the “lock” button and it saves in your vault. At that point, it becomes like a mobile coupon you use before the expiration date. From five star restaurants in downtown Denver to nail salons to pet food, companies include Denver Bouldering Club, A Kneaded Touch Massage Therapy, Blowout Hair Studio, Bonnie Brae’s Tavern, Max’s Wine Dive, in-Tea, and Nixons Coffee House.

Bicycle Village offers Kid’s Trade Up program.
