Deals: Tax Day, Free Days, Free Scoop Day and more!
posted by: Gretchen
I have been writing about deals for almost seven years now. I often do things or go places that I’ve written about before but forget to remind you about them. Like – shopping for hair products at Sally’s Beauty, signing up for Groupon emails so not only do you get the great deals regularly – but you also get extra discounts sometimes, looking for awesome festivals in Civic Center Park, free concerts at malls every summer, or making it an outing to free scoop days or free movie premiers. We also love to go to movies at the Alamo Draft House where we can get a meal and watch a movie. It makes it super special.
Ben & Jerry’s Free Scoop Day. Tuesday, April 10 is free scoop day at Ben & Jerry’s. Free Scoop day is the company’s way to show appreciation to their customers! Available from 12 noon to 8 p.m.
Free Movie. (again this is likely a girls night out – not for the kiddos to go with). Do you want to see I FEEL PRETTY before it hits theaters? Click on the link http://stxtickets.com/

Extra Innings? I love that the whole family can have a day of fun at the ball park when you go to a Rockies Game. You can score inexpensive tickets and we often bring our lunch or snacks into the game. Some games have AWESOME promotional items (I love the $1 hot dogs). Here is a full list of all the bonus deals you can score just by picking the right game to take the family to – we will be at the May 8 Angels game. In addition to the ticket deals, you can also score tacos for just 50 cents when the Rox score seven or more runs.
