Another year, another Cheap Issue. City Pulse has always been a proponent of thriftiness; we’ve long offered advertisers 50 percent off their rates if they include a coupon that can be used by our readers. But this list is compiled by staff to highlight free deals available from Greater Lansing businesses.

And, as always, our stories in the Cheap Section highlight our favorite spots for cheap deals. This time around, we profiled the used video game and electronics retailer Disc Traders.

This year’s theme highlights the deals out there in Lansing for children, students and seniors. Or to put it simply — the young and the old. While this list isn’t 100 percent comprehensive — no list is — it’s certainly a good place to start.
