What Our Readers Say…
I wanted to reach out to you today to tell you “Thank you.” Mile High on the Cheap changed my outlook about life, and my family’s. Your hub has supported me in that while we don’t have much, we can still feel fulfilled. The information from your site has brought us out into our community more; we’ve even found that we enjoy free things to do as a family even more-so, because there’s no pressure to “get our money’s worth.” Mile High on the Cheap has been such a huge help even extending into helping to teach our son (5 years old) about money. We’ll take a dollar from his piggy bank, and he feels so proud to help on free food Fridays at King Soopers or 99 cent eggs from Safeway. We’ve found a new love for our community and so much opportunity to grow as a family. Mile High on the Cheap is the best newsletter I get every day. — Stacey
I realized this morning that I trust you more than any other online connections I have never met. That may seem like a back-hand compliment, but I do mean it! Although faceless, you have managed to build trust through an essentially impersonal website that simply alerts me to saving and sales options. Maybe it’s because you’ve actually shared your real names; maybe it’s because I know that you are local; maybe it’s the subtle, but consistent, personal touch you communicate through your deal postings; maybe it’s because every deal on which I’ve ever followed through after being alerted to it by you has been a real one; or maybe it’s all of these things. In any event, I guess I could say that you’re “my friends in the deal business.” I’m even thinking about canceling my notifications to most other deal sites, such as Groupon, since I know I can keep abreast of virtually every conceivable option for saving money in Colorado through Mile High On The Cheap alone. – Mary Ann
