App launched with discounts for downtown Colorado Springs businesses

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- There's a good deal going on for customers shopping at dozens of businesses in downtown Colorado Springs -- the city just launched a new app that can help you save some money.

The Discover Downtown Pass app launched on Thursday. It's kind of like Groupon, but with a focus on small businesses in the Springs.

The app is free, and inside are deals to nearly 70 businesses around the downtown area. Some of them offer free or buy-one-get-one snacks and food, and there are also discounts for plenty of retailers.

And of course there are offers for free beer: several establishments in the downtown area, including Oskar Blues and Mash Mechanix, are offering buy one, get one free beer.

You can get the app at this link here.

  1. “And of course there are offers for free beer: several establishments in the downtown area, including Oskar Blues and Mash Mechanix, are offering buy one, get one free beer.”

    Cory Gardner stated, “I just like beer”…

  2. So curious…. How much did this app cost the taxpayers to develop and launch? All to promote downtown.

    1. Viral Thoughts, this was my initial question as well. But then I made it to the last paragraph and all I could hear was Cory Gardner’s Mud-slinging advertisement and I was derailed.

    2. I’m guessing it was paid for by the downtown merchants, or their representative organization. But you know it will reflect in the prices they charge their customers.

  3. “App launched with discounts for downtown Colorado Springs businesses”
    .
    It’s going to take a heck of a lot more that gimmicks like this to get me anywhere near downtown. Convenient and longer-term parking is still the number 1 issue as far as I’m concerned.
