Denver Deal: McDonalds, Free Day, Free Flu Shots and More

Denver Deal: McDonalds, Free Day, Free Flu Shots and More

While the rest of the world turns everything in to Pumpkin Spice something-or-another, I have an obsession of another kind. I can not get enough of Jonathan apples. I literally take the “apple a day” mantra to heart. It is only at this time of year that I can seem to get my hands on them. They are cheap at just 88 cents a pound at my favorite store, Sprouts. How much longer will the Pumpkin Spice fad last? I’m not sure, so long as no one else turns my Jonathan apples into a “thing” and there are still plenty for me – I’ll be OK.

McDonalds.  Hurray for Breakfast all day! Starting Tuesday, October 6 McDonald’s will offer breakfast all day. On October 7th, participating McDonald’s restaurants throughout the state will initiate a statewide PJ Day where anyone who comes into a McDonald’s wearing their PJs will receive a free Egg McMuffin (rules and conditions apply: 5 a.m/ to midnight offer, shirts and shoes required).

Caribou Coffee & Einstein Bagels. Wednesday, October 7 celebrate the opening of the best coffee, Caribou Coffee right next to my favorite bagelry, Einstein Bagels at 14695 E. 40th Avenue starting at 5 a.m. The first 50 will get coffee and bagels for a year. All others in line at 5 a.m. will get a free coffee and bagel (while supplies last). 

Free Days. 

Broncos Specials. I like to cheer the Broncos on because I like to see my team win – but when they do there are some great deals you can take advantage of!

  • Elitch Gardens Theme Park – purchase a general admission ticket for just $18, on the day following every Broncos win through October 18.
  • Arby’s – get a regular roast beef sandwich for just $1 when the Broncos score 3 TDs
  • Conoco – grab a free coffee the morning after a Broncos win. 
  • King Soopers – Free donut (or two-liter bottle of Orange Crush for just $1)
  • McDonalds – Get a Sausage Egg McMuffin or Big Mac for just $1 with key tag and win. 

DispatchHealth, a Denver, Colo.,-based healthcare startup that provides mobile, onsite healthcare for acute care patients is offering 500 FREE flu shots at three Denver-area events in October.   Those wanting a vaccination simply attend one of the free events on October 10 & 11 (11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at South Metro Fire Rescue Station 34A), locate the DispatchHealth care team and vehicle, and complete a short form.  The vaccinations will be distributed on a “first come, first served” basis.

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. For the month of October, visitors to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, can enjoy a Mountain Fall Festival with a pumpkin patch, family-friendly games, fall-themed photos and Oktoberfest food and drink specials. There’s even more fun on Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m. with hayrides, face painting and pumpkin decorating. The park is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.  The mountain-top park will also offer four special, spooky Halloween evenings October 23, 24, 30 and 31. From 6 to 9 p.m. guests can take a haunted cave tour, roast s’mores around the fire pits and play Halloween games.Admission for these four evenings is $10 per person or $5 for annual passholders. 

Southwest Airlines. Not all fall break deals are stay-cations. Southwest Airlines has a lot of great deals. I’m kind of thinking of taking my daughter to the Mall of America (in Minneapolis) for some more back to school shopping or maybe we’ll go to a Disney park.
