If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to ABQ on the Cheap's RSS feed or email digests. Thanks for visiting!

Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day gives free admission to the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, El Rancho de las Golondrinas and more, when you use the free admission coupon to print out or show on your smartphone.

Two people get free admission to participating museums across the country on Saturday September 28, 2013, on Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day.   Albuquerque museums joining the party are:

  • The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History
  • Albuquerque Museum of Art & History
  • New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science

You can’t just turn up and get in free. Sign up for a Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day free admission ticket and they’ll email it to you. The ticket covers two people’s admission and is only valid on Saturday September 28, 2013. Some museums allow you to show the ticket on your smart phone to save printing it out. (Check the relevant museum page at the participating New Mexico Museums link to see if they offer that option.)

Other New Mexico museums offering the free admission are:

  • El Rancho de las Golondrinas (Santa Fe)
  • Bradbury Science Museum (Los Alamos)
  • Los Alamos Historical Museum (Los Alamos)
  • Kit Carson Home and Museum (Taos)
  • Haak’u Museum (Acoma Pueblo)
  • Hubbard Museum of the American West (Ruidoso Downs)
  • Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art (Roswell)
  • Mesalands Community College’s Dinosaur Museum (Tucumcari)
  • University Museum, New Mexico State University (Las Cruces)
  • Western Heritage Museum Complex and Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame (Hobbs)

Savvy cheapos might use their ticket for the higher cost museums – such as the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, especially as it does not have a regular free admission day. But however you spend it, enjoy your free museum day!

Free Week of Yoga Classes

September 1, 2013 by  
Filed under Freebies, Spas & Health, Sport & Leisure

National Yoga Month heads to the mat in September 2013, and new students at participating yoga studios get a week of free yoga in September or October with the Yoga Month Card.

National Yoga Month aims to educate us on the benefits of yoga and inspire everyone to live healthier, happier lives. Can’t argue with that, can you?

As part of the celebration, new students can get a free week of yoga classes with the Yoga Month Card, throughout September and October until October 30, 2013.

The card for a free week of yoga is for NEW students only, to give you a chance to try out yoga at participating studios. Our understanding from conversations with the yoga teachers in previous years is that ‘new student’ means new to a particular studio – you don’t have to be a beginner. But check in advance with your chosen studio with any questions.

Participating Albuquerque yoga studios at time of writing (more may be added) are:

  • Midtown Sports & Wellness (4100 Prospect NE)
  • Holistic Wellness Co-Op (1024 Eubank NE)
  • Albuquerque Ashtanga Yoga (206 Dartmouth Drive NE)
  • Kundun Yoga in Cedar Crest

Register for the Free Yoga Month Card, choose a studio, then print out the card. The offer is for one yoga card per person, and you can only choose one studio. You can’t change your selection later, so confirm any questions in advance with the studio to be certain you’ve picked the one you want.  It’s possible that more studios may join the program so you can always wait a few days if the ones listed aren’t so convenient for you.

Then use the card for a week’s worth of free lessons until October 30, 2013.

Sadly there don’t seem to be any other Albuquerque free yoga events this year – sometimes there have been special free classes. But perhaps some will come on board or let us know if they’ve got National Yoga Month specials on offer. If so, I’ll update.

Still, the luxury of a week of free yoga classes is rather fab. And if you’re going to do a sun salutation, what better place to do it than sunny Albuquerque?

Kids Bowl Free Summer 2013: Still Time to Play!

August 14, 2013 by  
Filed under Freebies, Kids, Sport & Leisure

Comments Off

I mentioned the Kids Bowl Free program at the beginning of summer, but if you haven’t taken advantage of the deal yet there is still time for kids to play two free games every day. Plus you can purchase an optional family pass for $24.95 for up to four adults to play two games each a day.

Kids Bowl Free is a great summer program with bowling centers around the country, giving kids the chance to play two free games every day throughout the promotion. You need to sign up to the Kids Bowl Free 2013 promotion to get free bowling coupons every week.

The participating bowling centers in Albuquerque are Leisure Bowl, Holiday Bowl, Silva Lanes, and Tenpins & More in Rio Rancho. Even if you were registered with the program last year, you need to re-register for 2013.

Start by registering your child or children for one or more of these bowling center programs. If you sign up for more than one, you’ll need to use a different email address for each account:

Leisure Bowl Kids Bowl Free program runs until September 17, 2013, for youngsters aged 18 and under. They can play seven days a week from Noon to 6 pm.

Holiday Bowl Kids Bowl Free program runs until September 17, 2013, for bowlers aged 18 and under. At Holiday Bowl, kids may bowl free seven days a week from 9 am to 6 pm.

Silva  Lanes Kids Bowl Free runs to September 10, 2013, for kids aged 18 and under. Their free games are on Monday and Thursday from 10 am to 10 pm; on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 am to 5 pm; on Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm, and on Sunday from 11 am to 4 pm.

Tenpins & More Rio Rancho Kids Bowl Free program runs through August 31, 2013, for kids aged 15 and under. Their free games are valid on Monday to Wednesday and on Friday: 11 am to 2 pm; and on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm.

  • You can register up to six children on each registration form – if you have a bigger brood, you need to create an additional account with a different email address for the other children.
  • Then watch your email to confirm your subscription and then you’ll get an email with info to log in to your account and print out the coupons for 2 free games per day.
  • If the young bowler’s family members also want to play, then once you’ve registered a child for the free bowling, you have the option to buy a family bowling pass for $24.95, which allows up to 4 adults to each play 2 free games a day too.

The Albuquerque/Santa Fe book offers over $56,000 in local savings, with discount coupons, 2-for-1 deals, and freebies with purchase, etc. for entertainment, leisure, and dining, That includes 167 restaurant coupons, 61 attraction discounts, and 147 shopping coupons, plus other ways to save.

The Body Shop Coupon: $5 Off

July 16, 2013 by  
Filed under Shopping

Update: An even better deal at $10 off! Get $20 worth of Body Shop goodies for $10 using this limited time deal. This deal went live shortly after I posted about the Body Shop discount coupon below, but if you’re a fan of the Body Shop (or have gifts to buy as you can give this deal as a gift) then you’re better off with the half price deal.  The offer gives you $20 to spend in stores when you buy the Groupon certificate for $10, which as we can all work out is 50% savings.  You can buy up to 3 per person, and then spend the certificates by September 28, 2013.

If you missed that limited time and limited quantity offer, then continue on with the rest of this post to get $5 off a $25 purchase.

——————————————

Save on soaps, bath products, skincare, beauty and makeup with a Body Shop coupon to get $5 off, through July 2013.

I love The Body Shop, and am addicted to its Body Butters on through the dry days of summer. I especially like the original mango body butter and also the the satsuma – the fruity fragrances pep me up in the morning. The coconut one is lovely for summer as it always reminds me of the beach.  Either that or it makes me smell like a macaroon. Mr Cheap is too smart to tell me if it’s the latter.

Whatever you want to buy, print out this Body Shop coupon to get $5 off a purchase of $25 or more in stores through July 31, 2013.  You can also get the coupon at this page and click the link that says (surprise, surprise) ‘Click here for a printable coupon.’

Although the coupon is offered courtesy of the Coronado Center, the fine print says it is valid at all participating United States Body Shop locations.

The offer is for one coupon per customer, for purchases in stores only, not online. It can’t be used to buy gift cards,  you’ve got to buy actual product - which is never a problem for me. It also can’t be combined with any other promotions or offers. However, if you are a member of the Love Your Body program, the Body Shop coupon can be used with the Love Your Body membership discount.

The Body Shop sells skincare, soaps and bath products, fragrances, makeup and other beauty products… all those delicious things. From the skincare ranges, I like their Vitamin C moisturizer. It goes on very smoooothly and truly makes me look 19 again. Sorry, did I say 19? Looking in the mirror today, maybe I meant 91.
