Welcome CW2 Daybreak Viewers!

Here's a recap of the deals we discussed this morning...
The Broker Restaurant is having 1972 pricing for lunches through this Friday! Lunch is from 11-2 pm and the suggestion is to get there early as no reservations are taken. They are located at 821 17th Street in Denver.
Items on the rollback menu include:
$.95 – Tossed Salad or Soup of the Day
$4.95 – Shrimp Bowl
$3.75 – Chicken Picatta
$5.95 – Roasted Prime Rib – the most expensive item on the menu!
All wines by the glass are 50% off too.
What a nice inexpensive lunch, who knew you could eat at the Broker for so little money!

This Saturday, April 23rd, Lowe’s is giving away 1,000,000 FREE trees to celebrate earth day! Stop by your closest location early to get yours while supplies last. It looks like they will be giving away small saplings, but FREE is FREE!

EDIT: This coupon has been changed since I originally posted it from a coupon good at participating locations to only include a couple of locations in Virginia. I'm sorry about this as this deal is no longer good here in Colorado! Qdoba has a buy one, get one free coupon good through May 5th for any naked burrito, naked taco salad, or naked mango salad. Naked refers to the burrito being served in a bowl instead of a tortilla and the taco salads just don't have the crispy shell.

Banfield Pet Hospitals which are located in many Petsmarts are offering FREE initial pet exams to new clients. You need to head over to their website and fill out a quick form to get access to a printable coupon for this.

If you shop online at all, then you need to be using cashback sites like Shop at Home and Ebates. They both work with hundreds of online retailers and give you a percentage back on your purchase when you shop through them. You actually receive a check once you hit the minimum cashback amount, not just a credit to somewhere. You simply create an account with these sites and then log into your account. Then, you search for the store you want to shop at and use the link from the cashback site to get to the online store. Once you make a purchase, your cashback account will show your purchase and you will have credit in your account! These sites are a great way to save even more money while shopping online! Head over here to sign up for your Shop at Home account and over here to sign up for your Ebates account. Both of these sites are completely legitimate, I've received cashback checks from both of them with no problems! Ebates even offers a $5 sign up bonus or gift card to select stores, just for signing up for an account!

Target has some great prices on DVDs/Blu-rays this week through Saturday. You can get How to Train Your Dragon and Shrek Forever After Blu-ray combo packs for $12.99 or DVDs for $6.99 with no coupon needed. There are other great deals on lots of DVDs and Blu-rays at Target as well. It looks like Amazon may be price matching some of these deals if you would rather shop online. I'm putting some of these in my kiddos easter baskets, they are going to be so excited!

And here is another great deal we previously discussed on the show that is still available...

Canvas People is offering a FREE 8 x 10" Photo Canvas or $50 credit towards any size you want, just pay shipping and handling of $14.95. Just to compare, Costco who I think has great photo processing prices charges $29.99 before shipping charges for an 8 x 10" canvas print so this is a great deal even with the shipping charge. This would make a great gift for someone special, don't forget that Mother's Day is just around the corner. Go here to get this great deal.

If this is your first time visiting my site look around for tons of other money saving ideas and tips. Some of my favorite tips are here, here, here and here. Please feel free to contact me directly at thriftymomincolorado@gmail.com with any questions you may have after looking around the site!
