Buy at Borders this weekend and get a $15 donation to a school of your choice.

Thanks to reader Sharon for sending this tip! It’s not a deal for YOU but it’s a deal for Albuquerque schools. The Borders Super Classroom Days promotion this weekend December 4 and 5, 2010, means that if you make a purchase in a Borders store, you’ll get a $15 gift card that you can use to make a donation to a classroom of your choice.

If you buy the book Waiting for Superman, they’ll add an extra $15 to your donation.

I’m trying to see the catch in this but I can’t. They don’t give a minimum spend so presumably there isn’t one…. but this is last minute info so I haven’t had time to contact Borders book stores and check out more details.

Here are some of the 56 City of Albuquerque schools registered at, so you can use your free gift card to make a donation to these classrooms. Or use the search and filter tools in the right toolbar for other metro areas or specific schools of interest to you.

The offer runs at Borders for in store purchases only, on December 4 and 5, 2010.

Albuquerque Borders stores are located at 2240 Q St. NE, 5901 Wyoming Blvd. NE, and 10420 Coors Bypass NW.

If the economy has you re-thinking that Spring Break trip to Florida, here’s a cheap alternative.

Albuquerque’s Kiss 97.3 is hosting Spring Break Teen Bash 2009 at the Sunshine Theater on Sunday, March 22. Hosted by Dana Cortez, with DJ Automatic in the mix. This inexpensive entertainment for teens features dance contests and more. Show your student ID for unspecified discounts.

It can be hard to find fun things for teens to do in Albuquerque, but this dance could be just the ticket. This event is for high school and junior age teens only. Tickets $10 at the door (no advance sales). Doors open and event begins at 6:00pm.

The Sunshine Theater is located at 120 Central Ave SW.
