Deals: Pre-Black Friday Sales, Candy Buy-Back & more!
posted by: Amber Johnson
I am hoping you can help me with a little argument that I had with a friend. She and I were talking about spending money on what we both call “little things.” For her, it is paying for a Spotify Premium membership. I told her I wouldn’t pay for it because I can get it for free – but she says she would never pay for Netflix – because she already pays for Prime and she can get things to watch on-demand there. As a deals blogger [and self-admitted frugal person], I’m always curious what you think is something you would NEVER pay for. Would you mind sending me a quick note and letting me know?
Free Days. The first of the month usually sees a lot of free days. November is no exception.

Peet’s Coffee. Download the Peetnick App (for Peet’s Coffee) and use the code to ENROLL when you enroll in the program. Get a $5 credit (good for a free drink).
Pre-Black Friday Sales. There are so many stores that are already offering great deals, it is no wonder that you are whistling Christmas songs already. Amazon already has over 26,000 toys on sale some of my favorites are: Alex Toys Art Fantastic Spinner for just $12 at amazon.com; Lego Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Infinity War Sanctum Showdown Building Kit $20 off, making it $80 and Rainbow Lemon Giant Inflatable Unicorn Sprinkler, half off at $18.

Million Meals at the Movies is a family movie night and story-time at The Elaine Wolf Theatre at the JCC on Saturday, November 16th from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The event is FREE to attend but tax-deductible donations to No Kid Hungry will be welcomed (every $5 donated can help provide up to 50 meals for a child who is facing hunger!) RSVP here.
Ski Deals. Labor Day weekend also ushers in thoughts of the ski season. Now is the time to get your season passes! No matter where you choose to ski/snowboard.
- 5thand 6thGrade Passport. Colorado Ski Country (including most of the other Colorado Ski Areas – Arapahoe Basin, Copper, Cooper, Granby, Sunlight, Steamboat, Winter Park, Aspen, Snowmass, Monarch, Telluride, Eldora) is available for 5th graders who get three days of skiing at each of the resorts, free beginner lesson, and equipment on the day of that lesson for FREE. Sixth-Graders can take advantage of FOUR days at each of the resorts and lessons for just $110.
- Junior Trade at Epic Mountain Gear is the place to get the kids ski equipment. Here’s how it works: You buy used ski equipment from the store. Use it all season long (and even bring it in for a trade if your kids outgrow it). Bring it back at the end of the season for credit of 50% of your purchase price. It prices out at just two times of rental equipment.
