Comments Off on Discount Golf Lessons at Twin Warriors

These discounted golf lesson packages could make a great gift for the golfer in your life – available for purchase until December 31, 2014.

I always like giving people unforgettable experiences for Christmas and this does not include my attempt at singing “Jingle Bells” in a minor key.

So these golf instruction deals at Twin Warriors Golf Club  caught my eye. They could be a hole in one if you’ve got a golfer to buy for, or you like hitting the greens yourself. The discounted packages are with Sandy Lemon, the Director of Golf Instruction, and there’s a range of prices to suit all pockets.

For example:

  • $25 off Golf Instruction Gift Certificate – usually $100, now $75
  • $40 off a one-hour private lesson and a 30-minute follow-up – usually $120, now $80
  • $40 off a 90-minute “your choice” package on things like putting, chipping and pitching, etc… – usually $120, now $80
  • $35 off a 90-minute package for two people on full swing and short game, usually $135, now $100

They’re available to buy till December 31, 2014, then the gift must be redeemed by the end of December 2015. The final order date for delivery by Christmas is Friday December 19, 2014.

Expect to pay $1 for shipping, and you can personalize the certificate with a message for the recipient.

Find out more about Sandy Lemon here – she’s got a very impressive golfing bio and is Director of Instruction for Twin Warriors Golf Club at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa, and also for the Santa Ana Golf Club.

Christmas Light Trade-In

Comments Off on Christmas Light Trade-In

Christmas Tree Lights by BrihoHome Depot trades in used and broken Christmas lights for discounts on new sparkly lights – you need to take advantage of the deal by November 17!

The Home Depot Christmas light trade-in for old lights is such a great idea. Every year Mr Cheap pulls down last year’s lights from the box on top of the wardrobe, I plug them in, they don’t work. We plug them in to another socket, they still don’t work. We change the fuse in the plug. They still don’t work. I go through the whole strand checking every bulb is screwed in tight. They still don’t work. By now it’s Easter.

Sometimes it feels as if I might as well just throw away all the lights when I take the tree down, instead of carefully storing them for next year. But if we did that, we wouldn’t be able to trade the lights in for a discount!

With The Home Depot’s Christmas Light Trade-in you can take used or broken incandescent holiday light strings to The Home Depot store for recycling. In exchange you receive a discount of $3 to $5 on a new purchase of energy-efficient LED lights. Home Depot reckons that the Energy Star qualified lights use up to 65% less energy than incandescent lights. The discount options are:

  • $3 off Home Accents’ Holiday LED lights
  • $4 off Martha Stewart Living or GE LED lights
  • $5 off EcoSMART or Light Show LED lights

Find all the details in the Christmas Light Trade-In PDF. Each customer can take in up to five old incandescent light strings for a maximum of five discounts, by November 17, 2013.

Time to check out your holiday lights people… where did you put them? Sparkle on!

Two Movie Tickets = $15

January 30, 2013 by  
Filed under Art & Entertainment, Movies

Comments Off on Two Movie Tickets = $15

For $15 get 2 movie tickets worth up to $26, in a limited time deal. UPDATE: This deal posted on January 30 has now sold out.

The offer gives you one Hollywood Movie Money certificate valid for two admissions, to redeem at participating Albuquerque (and national) movie theaters, including Century 14 Downtown, and it’s valid for 3D movies too.  You can buy up to 5 pairs of tickets for yourself, and 5 to give as gifts.

This is a national deal at Tippr, available until Thursday January 31. It looks like the offer runs until 10 pm Mountain Time (midnight Eastern). You’re basically buying a promo code that can be redeemed for two movie tickets up to a total value of $26, including 3-D and IMAX movies, and including opening day, for the participating cinemas.

See View All Terms at the deal page for a list of participating cinemas, searchable by zip code. As far as I can see in a quick search in the Albuquerque area, those include:

  • Century 14 Downtown Albuquerque
  • Century Rio 24 and XD
  • Cinemark Movies 8
  • Cinemark Movies West
  • Premiere Cinema 14 Rio Rancho

Check all the $15 for two movie tickets deal fine print to make sure it’s a good choice for you, and instructions for how to redeem the certificate, available immediately after purchase. The Hollywood Movie Money code you receive must be activated online by February 28, and the certificate redeemed within one month from online code activation.

Obviously the bargain value of this deal will depend on which movie theater you frequent and other factors that influence the regular admission price. If you already get a senior discount or whatever, or if you want to go to a lower-priced matinee, the regular admission could well be cheaper already than $7.50 per person.

But I hope this helps someone save a little on movie tickets… to spend on popcorn instead!

Comments Off on Sandia Golf Club Cheap Days in October

These Sandia Golf Club cheap days in October 2012 make this an excellent month to hit the greens.
(Well, not literally. Although I confess that when I’m playing, hitting the greens is a fairly common occurence.) I do LOVE the watery 18th hole at Sandia Golf Club, especially when viewed from the the watering hole of the Clubhouse bar…

The Sandia Golf Club discount special through the month of October lets you play a round at any time of day on Tuesdays or Wednesdays at the twilight rate.

That means golfers play for $45 including a golf cart and range balls. The $45 green fee is usually the twilight rate, which starts at 1 pm in October, but the twilight rate is extended to all day on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The regular all-day rate on those days is $70 including a cart.

Sandia Resort and Casino Golf Packages

If you’re visiting Albuquerque, or hey, if you just want a golfing staycation, Sandia Resort and Casino Golf Packages start at $128 a night through October when you use the promo code: BIRDIE
The rate includes accommodation at Sandia Resort & Casino, and one round of golf per night’s stay, plus use of the fitness center, spa, and sauna facilities.  The offer is for Sunday to Thursday nights, and the rate is per person.

Filed under Art & Entertainment, Half Off Deals, Movies

Comments Off on $12.50 for $25 Movie Gift Card

Save 50% on a trip to the movies! This $12.50 for a $25 Regal Entertainment Group Gift Card can be used on both admission tickets and concession purchases at Regal and UA cinemas. (If a box appears asking for your email address and you only want to see the deal first, not sign up, just click the screen outside the box and it goes away! And if you are asked to select a city in the ordering process, select National, as this is a national deal.)

The movie gift card offer via Saveology is for first-time Saveology customers only. They ran this deal a few weeks ago and it sold out, but now they’ve added new inventory. The gift card doesn’t expire and is valid at any Regal, United Artist, or Edwards theater nationally.

In Albuquerque, the Regal/UA cinemas are:

  • UA Cottonwood
  • UA Winrock
  • UA High Ridge
  • UA Four Hills
  • There are also two locations in Santa Fe.

The deal rules say that the entire value of the card must be used in one visit. So it’s a better bargain if you’re taking friends or family than if you’re going on your own…unless you plan to eat one heck of a lot of popcorn. The card can be used to pay for tickets, and for concession purchases.

The $12.50 for a $25 Regal cinemas gift card deal is for first-time Saveology customers only, and it’s only available for a limited time, or until supplies sell-out.

Either use the cinema gift card yourself, or give it as a gift, and make sure you read the deal fine print for all the details on redeeming the offer.

Nativo Lodge Hotel Second Night Free & Other Promos

July 26, 2012 by  
Filed under Lodging

Albuquerque’s Nativo Lodge deals include a second night free, a New Mexico resident discount, and a third night for a cut-price $19.12.

Locals will recognize the Nativo Lodge from the colorful patterns on the exterior, you can see it from I-25 near the San Mateo intersection. The rooms are decked out with Native American style furnishings, and I can tell you from experience that the beds are rather plush. I know because I tested a bed purely for research purposes while writing the hotels chapter for my guidebook Insiders’ Guide to Albuquerque. Oh, how I suffer for my work…   

Right now they’re offering a second night free at Nativo Lodge when you pay for one night. You can upgrade to a deluxe room with this deal for an extra $10. Book online or call for reservations using the promo code: FREE

I’m told this offer runs on dates till August 31, 2012, but I just tried a test booking on a room to stay in September and the promo code worked for that too, so maybe it’s on bookings made BY the end of August. Not sure, but if you’re interested hop over there fast and see what you can get!  

Other current Nativo Lodge hotel deals are:

  • New Mexico Residents get 20% off the best available room rate with no minimum stay, using the promo code: NMLOCAL
  • New Mexico Centennial Package with the third night stay for $19.12 (because NM’s state centennial celebrates the year 1912) when you book for three consecutive nights, plus a dining discount card the hotel restaurant and bar. Use the promo code: CENTENNIAL
  • Stay three nights or more and get a $30 dining credit at the hotel’s Spirit Winds Cafe using the promo code: STAYMORE  – although I think if you’re staying three nights you’re better off with the Centennial Package.

Nativo Lodge also offers a Pet Friendly Hotel Package (from $119) which waives the usual pet fee, and gives a doggie bag with treats and toys. You have to phone up and speak to an actual person to request that one.

For hotel deals, either book at Nativo Lodge online or call 1-888-628-4861. Promotions can’t be combined.

And if you’re going, use this printable coupon to get 50% off Nativo Lodge food, good on one food item purchase.

Nativo Lodge is located at 6000 Pan American Freeway NE, Albuquerque, near the I-25 and San Mateo intersection.

Comments Off on Four Movie Tickets = $24

For $24 get 4 movie tickets worth up to $12 each, in a deal today only. That’s $6 per ticket for Regal and United Artist cinemas.  It could make a good gift, too!

Get the deal via Half Off Depot, available only today, Friday April 27, or until the offer runs out – sometimes these movie ticket deals have a cap on the quantities available.  Once you’ve got the tickets they don’t expire, and can be redeemed at any Regal, United Artist, or Edwards theater nationally. In Albuquerque, the Regal/UA cinemas are:

The four tickets are good for the movie of your choice up to a value of $12 each. The offer excludes 3-D and IMAX movies, and the first 12 days of “selected” new release films, although in that case, you can pay a $1.50 upgrade fee at the box office.

  • Purchase today, April 27, 2012, or as long as supplies last.

With all the summer blockbuster movies heading our way, let’s hope this helps save a little on movie tickets… to spend on popcorn instead!
