Saving money at the box office can be as tricky as the latest suspense thriller…or full of laughs like a comedy. However, we found 8 ways you can be a superstar saver at Regal Cinemas. Even those who must see a film on opening weekend can save a few bucks. The key is to plan ahead and be flexible. (However, Regal Cinemas seems to be making it harder for frugal film fans to save money, as they have stopped or changed some discounts in the past year.) We never pay full-price at the box office or concession stand, so we’re happy to share our money-saving tips and tricks with you. (Bryan is nearing 300,000 points on his Regal Crown Club, so he’s definitely our in-house expert.) Lights! Camera! Discounts! [Read More…]

This appetizing promo is back! I find the deal quite delicious for the variety of food and savings. TGI Friday’s is serving an endless supply of some of its most popular appetizers for just $10 per person at participating locations. Choose from fried pickles, meatballs, boneless wings (all flavors), pan-seared pot stickers, mozzarella sticks, loaded potato skins and BBQ chicken flatbread. After enjoying your first order, receive unlimited reorders of any of the listed appetizers. The appetizers are endless and so is the promo itself. The offer is now a permanent fixture on the menu. At this price, you might skip an entrée and just indulge on an all-appetizer lunch or dinner. (Sorry, no take-home bags!) There are 4 locations in Colorado – Aurora, Denver, Longmont and Thornton.
Skiers and riders lust to get on the slopes in the short dark days or early winter, but late winter and spring are when the conditions are at their best (especially this season), and days are longer and warmer. Also, most holiday blackout periods are over, so you can get the deals whenever you want to go. With this in mind, Crested Butte Mountain Resort offers some terrific values.
Stay and Ski for $99. Through April 6, CBMR’s Stay and Ski for $99 package starts at $99 midweek and $139 on weekends. It includes one lift ticket per person for every night of lodging. This deal is subject to availability. Prices are per person, per night, based on double occupancy at the Grand Lodge right at the base of the lifts. [Read More…]
Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is celebrating the 92nd birthday of its co-founder, namesake and decorated World War II Veteran, Freddy Simon, with a sweet treat for customers. Through Saturday, February 26, customers can get a single-scoop of the restaurant’s signature chocolate or vanilla frozen custard (served in a cake cone or dish) for just 92¢ at participating locations. Toppings and/or a waffle cone are available at an additional cost. The restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday & Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. There are 19 locations in Colorado — click here for addresses.

They have the meats…and savings! Arby’s is offering a deal on some its most popular menu items. For a limited time, get a Beef ‘n Cheddar Classic sandwich, Classic Roast Beef sandwich, Crispy Fish sandwich or Loaded Curly Fries for 2 for $5 at participating locations. Get two of the same or mix & match. The savings are in the bag, given some of the sandwiches are around $4 alone. (You must buy two items, to get the discounted price.) If you’re dining alone, save the second sandwich for dinner or lunch the next day. (Although, the second sandwich could also be a midnight snack, right?) A quick spin in the microwave and it’s just as tasty.

For the Tibetan Mastiffs living on Snow Mountain, a dog’s life has a simple riff: Guard a peaceful village of wool-making sheep from the thuggish wolf. To avoid distractions, Mastiff leader Khampa (J.K. Simmons) forbids all music from the mountain. But when Khampa’s son Bodi (Luke Wilson) discovers a radio, it takes just a few guitar licks for his fate to be sealed: Bodi wants to be a rock ‘n’ roll star. That means heading to the city, and locating the legendary — and reclusive — musician Angus Scattergood (Eddie Izzard), who needs to write a new song and fast. If Bodi can put a band together, help Angus with his song, and defeat the wolves’ plot, his life will be in tune. Bodi will become more than a dog … more than a Rock God… he’ll be a Rock Dog!
