Boom! Look at that jump from the last update. When I hit $100, I’m adding it to my emergency fund so that it will start earning interest and do me some good, and so I’ll be $100 closer to having my emergency fund fully funded.
Frugal in FoCo Pro Tip: BUY A FORT COLLINS PASSPORT
Reasons why you need to do this immediately:
A. You get 2-for-1 drinks at 30 different places around Fort Collins.
B. There are other goodies in the passport. For example, last year’s included a free wheel of MouCo Cheese and a free burrito at Illegal Pete’s. The Passport folks also do periodic parties for passport holders.
C. It’s good from Memorial Day to Labor Day, aka the greatest time to be in Fort Collins because it’s beautiful and most of the students are gone.
D. It’s on sale for only $15 until May 22, and then only $20 after that. If you think about what you get for the investment, it’s a screaming deal, especially if you were planning on doing some patio drinking anyway. You basically get 30 drinks for the cost of 3.
E. It’s like being in a secret society. When you get your passport out at a brewery or restaurant, everyone else with a passport is like, “Hey! Me too!” and then you can have discussions about your best passport adventures. You can plan special passport outings with your passport-holding friends and then you can all Instagram your drinks and passports together (see above).
The Passport is also available for other cities, so if you’re in Boulder, Brooklyn, Colorado Springs, Denver, LA, Santa Barbara, DC, or Columbia, MO, you can drink on the cheap in style too.
