My co-worker Katie, who I mention on this blog fairly often, likes to go on and on and on about Cosmo's Pizza here in Fort Collins. I have actually never been, but she says the pizza is great and even more importantly (to her), you can order a side of spicy ranch dressing with your pizza. She says the spicy ranch makes any of their already-great pizzas better, and she even goes as far as to buy their spicy ranch by the bottle, because apparently Cosmo's sells it at places like Whole Foods.
Regardless of whether you agree with Katie and her strong opinions about spicy ranch dressing, you can now order online and get 10% OFF your first order. You can place your delivery, carry-out or dine-in orders online, so why not give it a try?
'Tis the season for taxes! As I am sure most of you already know, your tax filings are due on Monday, April 18.
While many of you may prefer to do your taxes on your own, I personally do not. For one, I am lazy. Also, I don't like feeling like I am missing something when I'm done doing them myself. You know those commercials where they're like, "bring your taxes to us, because we get people at least $100 more than they can get on their own" or whatever? Well, I believe them. If you're not sure if it's time to take your taxes to a professional, here is a rather helpful article from Forbes that can help you decide if it's time to take to seek someone who really knows what they're doing.
If you do decide it's time to take your taxes to a professional, I would suggest going H&R Block, because I have a coupon for you. Use this coupon at any H&R Block in Fort Collins, and get $25 OFF Your Tax Preparation. What's more, H&R is running a promotion to give away $1,000 to 1,000 people daily. You have from now until 2/15/16 to enter and the final drawing will take place on 2/19/16. Each taxpayer gets one entry with a paid federal tax return. At 1,000 winners per day, there will be a 32,000 winners total. So I mean, your chances of winning H&R Block's drawing are higher than the lotto you recently bough tickets for!
I am from small town Wyoming and when I was a kid, going up to the big city (Billings, Montana) was a HUGE treat. Billings had a Red Lobster and if you had a SUPER special occasion to celebrate, your family would go there and you'd brag about it to every at school for the next week.
Maybe Red Lobster wasn't that exciting you when you were a kid, but if you enjoy their food (hello, cheddar biscuits), here is a coupon for you. Now until 1/31/16 get $4 OFF Any Two Adult Entrèes. Or, redeem it for $2 a single adult entrèe.
My daughter just turned 3 and is officially old enough to understand birthday parties — and that she really wants one! There are some great places in Fort Collins to hold a child's birthday party, but when I was searching online, I noticed that Battle Zone Arena in Loveland wasn't showing up — and that's a shame!
Battle Zone Arena is an indoor soft dart battlefield (think back to the Nerf guns of your childhood) and provides a safe place for some good old fashioned war-play! I know for a fact that this would have been my brother's number one choice for each and every birthday party he ever had up until like, 14, so I can't imagine it would be different for any other boy (or even girl) out there!
There are a couple of different birthday packages available Battle Zone area which you can check out here. If you use this coupon you can get $10 OFF a weeknight party or $20 OFF a weekend party. Be sure to call for reservations and details.
Right now until 2/8/16, you can use this coupon at Cafe Rio Mexican Grill and when you buy one burrito or salad, you'll get one FREE! I know that the Cafe Rio here in Fort Collins is located here. Limit one per customer, duh.
Due to the nature of my husband's job, he owns a handgun and it seems like he's constantly off to the range to re-certify. Although he seems to shoot it fairly frequently, I can't say I notice him cleaning it often — enter today's savings...
Colorado Gun Cleaners is located at 405 N. Denver Ave. in Loveland and provides fast, friendly of course, professional gun cleaning services. If you own a gun, you probably know how often you're supposed to clean it, but I am not a gun person, so I had Google it. From what I can see, you should probably clean your defensive handgun after every trip to the range, but not necessarily as often for a "range toy." Whenever you do decide to clean your gun, use this coupon from Colorado Gun Cleaners and you have it professionally cleaned for only $25. This coupon is good on ANY gun including: pistols, rifles, sporting rifles, shotguns, and tactical rifles. This is a great deal, considering you'd usually be paying $35 to $45/cleaning. This offer is valid for new customers only and only on your first gun.
Some of you may already know that although I like a lot of pizza places here in town, I have a special affinity for Panhandler's Pizza. Not only do I prefer pan-style pizza, but they do something special to their dough that you just can't find anywhere else. It's almost... pastry-like? At any rate, because it is one of my favorite spots, I know all their daily specials and thought I'd share them so you can also take advantage. Note: There is no limit on daily specials, but you may not combine with any other offer.
Mondays: Medium 1-Topping Pizza $11.99
Tuesdays: Large 1-Topping Pizza $13.99
Wednesdays: Micro-Brew Pitcher only $1.99 with the purchase of a large pizza
Thursdays: 2 Medium 1-Topping Pizzas $19.99
Fridays: 2 Large 1-Topping Pizzas $29.99
Saturdays: Micro-Brew Pitcher only $1.99 with the purchase of a large pizza
Sundays: Large 1-Topping Pizza, Cheese Garlic Bread, & a Side Salad $19.99
Daily specials are listed on their website, but what is not listed on the site is their rotating featured slices. Panhandler's sells pizza by the slice, and in addition to the standard pepperoni and cheese slices etc., they rotate between 4 of their specialty pizza slices: California Artichoke, The Beggar, The Hawaiian, and the Chicago-Style Sausage (descriptions here), and if you want to know which slice they're featuring on a particular day, you can check their Facebook Page. Featured slices offered during lunch only: 11:30-1:30 Mon-Fri and 12-2 Sat & Sun.
I love garlic knots, and love FREE garlic knots even more. If we have this in common, I have a coupon for you. Use this coupon from The Garlic Knot, and when you buy any large or extra large pizza (might I suggest you try The Metropolitan pizza), you'll get a FREE order of 10 garlic knots. Expires 2/10/16.
My husband and I have lived in our house for almost 8 years now. Everything was pretty new when we moved in, but we have now been there long enough that things are starting to look a little... worn. Our carpet is our biggest gripe at the moment, and we're talking about re-carpeting in the summer. So, since I have carpet on my mind, I wanted to share a few coupons with you if you share my desire for fresh flooring!
Dale's Carpet One is locally and family-owned and has been serving the Fort Collins area for over 20 years. They offer a large selection of carpet, hardwood, laminate, ceramic tile and more, and because they're part of a large network of stores (1,000 worldwide), they're purchasing power helps get you the lowest price. And speaking of low prices, they also have discounts currently available to help even more.
Coupon offers are available the date that I post them but may change at any time.
