Half Price Massage: September

Comments Off on Half Price Massage: September

Last chance to get 50% off massage in the month of September!  We mentioned this massage deal at the beginning of the month, and there’s still time for a little therapy that’ll relax your wallet too. But you’ll have to book fast for any remaining space on Monday or Thursday this week…

At Leaf Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Jennifer Wilson is offering 50% off any massage through the month of September, 2011.  (As she’s only open on certain days, that means you’ll need an appointment this Monday or Thursday, so call immediately.)

The regular price at Leaf Therapeutic Massage for a one-hour massage is $60, so the half price massage at $30 is extra-soothing on the bank account.  You don’t need a coupon, just mention that you saw the September 50% off massage deal at ABQ on the Cheap when booking. 

Wilson trained at the Crystal Mountain School of Therapeutic Massage in Albuquerque and the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balance in Los Angeles where she previously worked as a therapist. Her services include Swedish massage, circulatory massage, acupressure, hot stone massage, myofascial release, pregnancy massage, and sensory re-patterning.

I have no idea what sensory re-patterning is, but I’m pretty confident that I need it.

She also performs on-site massages for businesses. I need that too.

Leaf Therapeutic Massage is open on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, by appointment only – call (505) 850-9910.

The 50% off massage offer is limited to one per customer, until September 30, 2011.

Leaf Therapeutic Massage is located at 920A Cardenas Drive NE,

Comments Off on Tax Day Freebies and Deals

Tax Day 2011 is Monday April 18, in case you hadn’t noticed. So you’ve survived your IRS forms, or maybe are still struggling through them?  We’ve got tax relief in the form of Tax Day treats to sweeten the deal, valid on various days over tax weekend:

  • Arby’s Free Curly Fryday on April 15 – one free value curly fries per person using the coupon at the link, to kick off Tax Weekend.
  • Hinkle Family Fun Center on April 15 – Pay $15 for two hours of unlimited play on main attractions ( paintball and game room credits are extra). Ask for the Tax Day Special.
  • Two Free Cinnabon Bites  on April 18 – two freebies per person between 6 pm and 8 pm – note those are both PM times, it’s an evening offer – at participating mall-based Cinnabon bakeries.
  • 15% off all P.F Chang’s food purchases on April 18.  Dine in or take out. Not valid on beverages or happy hour food but otherwise just turn up with a taxing appetite.  (If you’re a Warrior Card member, you don’t get 10% off on top of that – just the same 15% as everyone else!)
  • Free HydroMassage for a little post-tax relaxation, from April 14 –  18. Click New Mexico on the map to see participating Albuquerque locations.  You must call ahead to schedule,  and print the free massage coupon to take with you.
  • Boofy’s Best for Pets Pays Your Sales Tax on April 18. In response to our Facebook Page request, they told us that “Making better nutrition choices for your pet shouldn’t be taxing, so on April 18 we’ll cover the sales tax for all purchases made at Boofy’s.” Find ’em at 8201 Golf Course RD NW.
  • Buffalo Exchange Dollar Day Sale on April 16. The sale on Saturday is not EXACTLY a tax day deal, it’s actually an Earth Day benefit for The Humane Society of the United States. But hey, it happens over tax weekend, so we’re throwing it in. Proceeds from the $1 clothing sale goes to the nation’s largest animal protection organization.   

If you’re still completing tax returns:

  • Office Depot 25 Free Copies of your tax returns through April 15. Print out the PDF coupon, although I’m not sure who needs 25 copies. That said, Mr Cheap and I do print out quite a few between us – just so we’ve got all the more to lose :-)
  • Tax Help New Mexico’s Midnight Madness on April 18. Certified tax preparers help tax payers file on time and online, from 8:30 am through midnight! It’s a free service for those with household income of $50K or less, or those aged 65+. At CNM Main Campus.
  • Free TurboTax edition online if you’re filing 1040EZ forms and simpler federal tax returns.  The program asks plain language questions to help complete the forms, calculate the return, and submit to the feds by free Efile or hard copy.  The program is suitable for forms including 1040EZ, 1040A, and 1040, but doesn’t cover tax schedules C, D, E, and F. TurboTax Free edition is only for federal tax returns, not state returns.

If you hear of any other local Tax Day deals – let us know!

Note: As always, not all locations may be participating in all deals – call ahead to be sure.

Comments Off on Opening Special: Half Price Massage

You need to print out the 50% Off Leaf Therapeutic Massage coupon and take it to your appointment to get the discount – or show it on your phone. The regular price for a one-hour massage is $60, so the half price massage at $30 is an extra-soothing deal.

She also performs on-site massages for businesses. I need that too.

The 50% Off Leaf Therapeutic Massage offer is limited to one coupon per customer, only on the first visit, until April 30, 2011.

It’s grand to see a new practitioner establishing a business here, and even better that we get to benefit from an introductory $30 massage!

We reported on some of these in our last Friday Food Freebies & Deals – where you’ll also find other offers that are still valid this week – but here’s a reminder of the Tax Day 2010 specials, plus a few more we’ve heard about since!

  • Free Starbucks coffee – all day on April 15, bring a reusable travel mug into your local Starbucks and get a free brewed coffee.
  • Free Cinnabon Cupcakes on April 15 – two free bite-sized cupcakes per person between 6 pm and 8 pm – note those are both PM times, it’s an evening offer – at participating mall-based Cinnabon bakeries.
  • 15% off all P.F Chang food purchases on April 15.  Dine in or take out. Not valid on beverages or happy hour food but otherwise just turn up with a taxing appetite.  (If you’re a Warrior Card member, you don’t get 10% off on top of that – just the same 15% as everyone else!)
  • Boston Market Restaurants buy one get one free – this Last Minute Tax break coupon gets you a free plate with the purchase of a plate from April 15 to 18. Not valid with other offers such as $5/$5.99/$2.99 meal deals.
  • Free HydroMassage for a little post-tax relaxation, from April 15 to 18. Looks like the participating Albuquerque location is Planet Beach (8201 Golf Course Rd NW). You must call ahead to schedule,  and print the free massage coupon to take with you.

Or a wedding, birthday, or other event) you can get $300 of Chef’s Elegant custom catering for $100, also valid till Oct 16.
  • As a sneak peak on one of our Friday Food Freebies & Deals to be posted tomorrow….and so you can get in early 😉 
    Jack in the Box is giving away free fries on Friday April 16, and calling it Free Fryday (groan).

Note: As always, not all locations may be participating in all deals – call ahead to be sure.

FYI– for the Groupon deal, I’ve linked you to the Groupon kick-back page. Translation: If you buy a Groupon after clicking on the link, and it’s the first time you’ve bought a Groupon, I’ll receive a small credit toward a future Groupon.  I tell you this because a) This site’s rules require it. and  b) The FTC requires it. If you feel like sending some Tax Day love this way, use the link. Otherwise, just go to Groupon.com. All other links go direct to the source!

Cheap De-Stressification at Ojo Caliente

Filed under Freebies, Spas & Health

Comments Off on Cheap De-Stressification at Ojo Caliente

Thanks to Tierna for the tip!

Few indulgences rival soaking in the mud pool at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa. Unless it’s soaking for FREE in the mud pool and enjoying a cheap massage, to boot!

From now through August 31, 2009 (excluding the weekend of July 3-6), motor up to Ojo Caliente any Monday through Thursday to take advantage of their “Mid-week Massage Special:”  a 50-minute massage for just $89 (a savings of $16) that also includes complimentary access to all mineral pools, mud pool, steam, and sauna until 10:00pm. That’s a lotta luxury for very little lucre!

The resort also has a variety of other seasonal specials running, and New Mexico residents always enjoy 2-for-1 access on Tuesdays (a $16 savings) and free entry to the springs on your birthday. Sweet!

Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa is located at 50 Los Baños, Ojo Caliente, NM, north of Santa Fe on State Highway 285.
