Denver Deal: New Years Eve, History Colorado & Free Days
posted by: Gretchen
Happy New Year’s!! I don’t know what you plan to do on New Year’s Day – but I will be at the stores. There are amazing deals to be had in those post-Christmas sales. I have seen emails from too many to mention. I know I will be asked to spend some time in the Disney Store (where they are having their 1/2 yearly sales at 40% discounts), H&M for my teen (where it seems like the whole store is on sale), and an email the other day said 93% discount at the Discovery Store. Really?!?!? 93%? I love it! See you at the mall!

New Year’s Plans
Children’s Museum of Denver celebrates Noon Year’s Eve with fun and games – plus you won’t have to wait until midnight – the ball will drop hourly from 10a-3p! If you are more of a mind to stay up a bit later – check out the fireworks display downtown (the family friendly one starts at 9 p.m.) Plus, RTD is offering FREE rides (bus and lightrail)! Plan to buy your pizza at Domino’s who is having discounts of 50% off with their large 3-topping pizza for just $7.99.
Do you shop like I do? I put things in my basket and then the longer I stay in the store I talk myself out of them (I think I can get a better deal elsewhere). I don’t have to do that at Thred Up, the online consignment shop. If I don’t act fast enough the stuff it gone when I return to the site. There are a ton of inexpensive items under $10 with designer labels! Plus, you get $10 to spend on the site – just for signing up for their emails!
Gems Card from Colorado Ski Country discount card is just $20 and has some of the best ski deals – like BOGO lift tickets and often there are super Flash Deals for additional discounts. This deal is good on resorts like Copper, Loveland, Monarch, Steamboat and more.
