Deals on Cirque de Soleil, Dominos Dollars, Bishops Lodge, Downton Days, Free Museums & More
A few deals, cheap eats, and free things to do this weekend.
Get a 4 Ticket Family Pack to Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam show with two adult and two child tickets for $240 for Category 1 seats (these tickets usually cost $333 including ticketing fees, according to a quick check I just made at the venue), or $300 for a Premium Pack ($423 direct from the venue). The show is at Santa Ana Star Center with four performances on January 17, 18, and 20, in the Cirque de Soleil package deal via Living Social. There are other cheaper level seats at the venue, but a reader asked about Cirque de Soleil discount tickets while they’re touring in Albuquerque, so I’m passing it on.
Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa in Santa Fe has a 30% off sale until Monday January 7, discounting standard seasonal rates by 30% on room bookings through December 31, 2013 when you use the promo code: J48S
See the movie Wise Blood free at The Guild Cinema on Saturday January 5 at 12:30 pm. The film was directed by John Huston, based on the Flannery O’Connor novel, and is part of the free Books to the Big Screen series in January mentioned in my earlier post.
Some spaces remain for the free Downton Days Tea Tasting and Talk on January 9, at time of writing. The Downton Abbey inspired event is at 10:30am at Taylor Ranch Library with a talk on afternoon tea and Certified Tea Specialist (who knew such a thing existed?) leading two tea tastings. Register in advance for the free event.
Get $5 in Domino’s Dollars when ordering online two medium 2-topping pizzas at $5.99 through January 13. The bonus $5 can be used on your next online order within 10 days.
This Burger King BOGO Free Whopper Coupon is still available for a limited time, giving you a free Whopper sandwich when you buy another Whopper sandwich. The coupon via Coupons.com may have a cap on quantities, but once you have it I believe the printable coupon is valid until at least March.
Pizza Nine Coupons include $5 off any $25 purchase, free 2 liter soda with a medium or large pizza purchase, free dessert with a medium or large pizza purchase. Plus (this last one is only for Pizza 9 carry-out orders) get a free medium pizza when you buy a large specialty pizza.
Join a free Rio Grande Nature Center Nature Walk this weekend, choosing from a guided bird walk at 8:30 am on Saturday and Sunday, or naturalist-led tour through the bosque on Sunday at 1 pm. The walks are free, but if you’re parking at the site the fee is $3 per vehicle, at 2901 Candelaria Rd NW.
Visit the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History this weekend, January 5 and 6, and get one free general admission as part of the Museums on Us program when you show your Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit card or debit card as well as a photo ID. The offer is also at around 150 museums nationally. Everyone else always gets free admission to the Albuquerque Museum on Sunday mornings from 9 am to 1 pm.
New Mexico residents get in free to The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science this Sunday January 6, 2013, from 9 am to 5 pm, and on the first Sunday of every month. Take your New Mexico ID!
Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum admission is free on Sunday from 9 am to 1 pm. Their special exhibit Mexican Space Collective: Ulises I is due to close soon (January 20 according to a City of Albuquerque press release, although the Museum site still has the final date as January 6) so this could be a good Sunday to catch the exhibit for free before it’s gone!
The National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum also offers free admission on Sundays, from 10 am – 5 pm, and at Coronado State Monument admission is free on Sundays for New Mexico residents with ID.
