I have many friends who will be getting new cars in the next week or so thanks to Mother Natures’ hail storm madness and insurance. The last time I had to buy a new car – I used a car broker (MileHigh Car Helper). It was the BEST way to shop – especially for us busy moms! I told my broker, Eric, what I wanted, how much I could pay – then he did all the leg work. He even offered to bring the car to me for test drive(s). And I was in and out of the office signing paperwork in less than 20 minutes. Slick, simple and easy. Plus, I got a GREAT deal.

Just put your destination in the app and they will let you know where there is parking nearby. When do you get to the parking spot – you can pay using the app too (no more standing in line at the kiosk that takes forever to even read your credit card), readers can try it first when you enter MILEHIGHMAMAS when they sign up and your account will be credited with $10 in free parking credits.
