DEALS
Aspen’s Hotel Jerome for Half-Price

Stay at Aspen’s recently renovated Hotel Jerome for $249 (typically $500 a night) between October 1 and November 21 with this deal from Travelzoo.com. The fine print: The deal includes resort fees and parking but is only good for Sunday through Thursday nights and isn’t available at all October 3–5. You've got until Friday to purchase your vouchers.

Patagonia Gives Store Credit for Old Duds
Patagonia has expanded its Worn Wear program, which provides patrons with store credit for when they trade in their gently used Patagonia gear, to Denver. Credit can be used in the store or online, and the company expects to have collected enough clothing to open a “Worn Wear” section in the Denver store by late September.
