What have you done for me lately, Denver? If you’re a huge fan of Janet Jackson, like me, you’ll want to enter this giveaway. (I openly admit, I was obsessed with Ms. Jackson for the latter part of high school and most of college. I even bought a $300 Rhythm Nation 1814 Tour jacket from her official website and never even wore it once. It’s still somewhere in my closet. If I win, I’m totally wearing it to the concert!) MHOTC is not associated or affiliated with the giveaway. We’re simply sharing the news.
The iconic musical artist is giving away two front row tickets to each of show on her current “State of the World Tour.” Luckily for Denverites, she is making a stop in the Mile High City on Tuesday, October 17 at the Pepsi Center. To enter, click here. The lucky winner will be contacted via e-mail 5 to 7 days before the show. That means keep checking your inbox starting October 10.
(Fine Print: You need to be in the area and able to attend, if you are selected. Tickets do not include travel, a meet & greet or any other perks. Tickets are non-transferrable and will be held under the winner’s name for pick-up only. Contest is limited to U.S. residents 18 years of age and older.)

The popular McPick 2 discount menu is back at McDonald’s for a limited time, with a new line-up of choices. Pick two of the following items for just $5 at participating locations: Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish, Quarter Pounder with Cheese or 10 Chicken McNuggets. You must purchase two items to get the savings. Otherwise, you’ll pay regular price. (It’s a great deal, given a few of the sandwiches cost about $4.50 individually.)
You’d be foolish not to get a second sandwich for just a little more change. Share it with a friend or family member…or save it for lunch or dinner. Fast food is not always the best hours later, but a quick trip in the microwave and it’s good again.
Stop the presses! Check out our weekly column “Cheap Checklist” in The Denver Post in the Life & Culture section. Every Saturday, we compile the best freebies, discounts and deals in town for the upcoming week. The column now periodically includes store sales — all the more reason for smart shoppers to make it a must-read. To read the column online, click here.
If you have any tips for possible items, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org 10 to 14 days in advance — just put “Cheap Checklist” in the subject line. We’re already working on the copy for next week!
Good morning! With this freebie from Chick-fil-A, it will definitely be a good morning. Through Saturday, September 30, receive an offer for a FREE breakfast item at participating locations via the Chick-fil-A One app. Choose from a Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit, Egg White Grill or Hash Brown Scramble Bowl. The offer is only valid during breakfast hours. Limit one offer per account. For more information on the app, including how to download it, click here. (For additional promo details, click here.)
Loyalty pays off, especially when it comes to being a member of AMC Stubs Insider. (Membership is FREE for the basic loyalty program.) Every Tuesday, through October 31, AMC Theatres offers members $5 Ticket Tuesdays — get a ticket for just $5. (There is an upcharge for premium formats and special events. Exclusions apply.)
Even better, members can also get a Cameo Combo for just $5 on Tuesdays, too — click here for the coupon. The combo includes a fountain drink (21-oz.) and Cameo-sized popcorn. (“Cameo-sized” is described as “snackable”, so we’re assuming it’s relatively small.)
It’s not often you can buy a ticket and enjoy popcorn & soda for $10. Let’s go to the movies!
We always ask for a receipt to ensure we’re charged correctly. However, in this case, it’s all about saving money. For a limited time, when you make a purchase between Sunday and Friday at Boston Market, receive a special receipt coupon good for a “buy one Individual Meal and a drink, get one Individual Meal for FREE” at participating locations on the following Saturday. (The coupon is at the bottom of the receipt. See the coupon for qualifying meals.) Remember, the discount is only valid on the Saturday of the same week. You must present the original receipt when ordering. Plus, it’s not valid with any other coupon, discount, special or reduced-price offer.
We found another reason for thirsty Broncos fans to cheer this season. During a regular season game, if Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. has an interception and returns it for a touchdown, fans get a FREE 6-pack of Pepsi mini cans (7.5-oz.) the day after such game at King Soopers. (The offer requires a SooperCard and is limited to one per household.) The promo runs from September 12 to January 1, 2018, while supplies last. Go, Broncos!

We like our frugal friends to be in-the-know. The Safeway in Cherry Creek (at First Ave. & Steele St.) just announced it will be closing its doors, after more than 50 years in business. We have yet to confirm a going-out-of-business sale, but it’s expected shortly. The grocery store expects to close by January 4, 2018. Of course, our bargain-hunting team will be on the lookout for details about any discounts or sales. However, we often get our best tips from our family of eagle-eyed readers. If you spot any details about a close-out sale, let us know.
“You are beautiful.” Such a simple statement, but so very profound. (I don’t think anyone can hear it enough.) I found these wonderful little silver stickers with the statement at a local boutique and loved them — simple, but profound. I researched the organization (www.you-are-beautiful.com) and found out they give away the stickers for FREE.
The stickers are all part of a movement to spread the positive message with loved ones and strangers alike. No political or religious motive. For a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope), the organization will send you 5 “you are beautiful” stickers for FREE — no strings attached. To learn how to get yours, click here. If you like the message, the organization sells lots of fun YAB stickers and gifts — all reasonably priced, in my opinion.
To learn more about how the mission of kindness got started, watch the short video featured on OWN’s “Super Soul Sunday.” And, never forget, you are beautiful!
If you frequent MAD Greens often, this deal is for you! For the first time, the salad, sandwich and soup shop is offering a limited-edition tumbler for just $3.99. For just a little more than the cost of a fountain drink, get the souvenir cup and 99¢ refills for a year with the purchase of an entrée. Plus, each cup sold will provide a meal for a child via the No Kid Hungry organization. However, act fast because they’re only available in-person, while supplies last.
We’ve had many debates with fellow bargain hunters about where to find the best grocery deals in town. For many, Safeway is at the top of the list. To be fair, we know many readers consider Safeway to be “too expensive.” However, we have found lots of savings at Safeway (especially since being acquired by Albertsons), so we’ve created a guide for navigating its aisles for the best deals and discounts. We have decades of experience as both Safeway customers and bargain hunters, so, hopefully, we can offer some “valuable” insight. (We’ve even been known to save upwards of 75% on our grocery bill.)

Sometimes it takes a village to find deals and, in this case, it’s Village Inn. Did you know September is National Breakfast Month. On select Saturdays in September, the popular diner is offering a buy-one-get-one FREE breakfast entrée at participating locations. (From our intel, the deal seems to be offered every Saturday. However, call ahead to confirm before making a special trip.) There’s something special about a weekend breakfast, right? Maybe it’s because you can relax and linger over a cup of coffee — no need to rush. No coupon required. The offer is for dine-in only and cannot be combined with any other coupons or discounts. There are nearly 50 locations in Colorado.
We’re always rootin’ for the Broncos! However, there’s a little more pep in our cheer because, when they win (or complete specific plays), we can all savor the victory with some great deals around town. There are many to tackle, so here’s a game plan for Broncos fans and bargain eaters on where to get the tasty deals.
Depending on the stats of a game, there are deals on pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, donuts, coffee and more at participating locations in Colorado. Limit one offer per customer, per day. The promos are valid for all regular season games. It’s definitely going to be one delicious season! Keep checking back, as there may be more offers to pass along down the road.

Trick-or-treat! McDonald’s is offering a frighteningly good deal, perfect for little goblins or ghouls this Halloween…or just as a fall treat for the kids in your life. For $1, get a Halloween Treats Pack with 12 coupons good for about $10 worth of FREE food. The pack contains three coupons for each of the following: bag of apple slices; small apple juice or milk jug; hamburger; and small vanilla cone.
The coupon book is available for sale at participating locations, while supplies last. However, the coupons can be redeemed at any participating location in the U.S. The coupons can only be redeemed by customers 12 years and younger from October 31 to December 31. Frugal family members might pick up a book or two just to keep on hand for quick after-school or weekend-errand snacks for the little ones, especially because they’re valid through the end of the year.
Much like its Spring Treat Pack earlier this year, the book may not be widely available. (We had many readers ask about where to find the Spring coupons, after extensive searches. As always, call ahead to check for availability first rather than wasting your time and gas. That’s so frustrating!) If you find them, please list the location in the comments below. It would be helpful to and appreciated by other readers also searching for the discount books. BOO!
