Comments Off on Kids Bowl Free Summer 2014: Still Time to Play!

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 2014 promotion to get free bowling coupons every week.

Fewer Albuquerque area bowling centers are taking part this year, but kids can still get free games at Silva Lanes and at Tenpins & More in Rio Rancho. If you were registered with the program last year, you need to re-register for 2014.

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:

Silva  Lanes Kids Bowl Free runs to September 20, 2014, 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, 2014, 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. This year, Tenpins & More has added a pair of night sessions.  Now kids can bowl their free games on Wednesday and Thursday nights between 9 pm to 11 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.
  • If you don’t have your own bowling shoes, you still have to pay regular shoe rental rates
  • Check the FAQ for any other details on how Kids Bowl Free works.

If you don’t know where these Albuquerque bowling centers are located, you’ll find them here: Silva Lanes is at 3010 Eubank Boulevard NE. Tenpins & More is at 1416 Deborah Rd SE, Rio Rancho.

National Public Gardens Day Free Admission ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden

Filed under Attractions, Freebies

Comments Off on National Public Gardens Day Free Admission ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden

National Public Gardens Day is on Friday May 9, 2014, and Albuquerque BioPark Botanic Garden joins in the celebrations with demonstrations, talks, and giveaways. The Santa Fe Botanical Garden is also involved.

You can get free admission to ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden on National Public Gardens Day, May 9 when you print out the free admission coupon at this link – click the yellow Get This Offer button. You will need to enter an email address and a zip code, but they don’t email the coupon to you – you’re taken straight to a page where you can print or download the coupon.

Last year the free admission tickets were via the Better Homes and Gardens magazine website and one coupon covered up to 10 people. This year I can’t see any info on how many people are covered by the coupon. So to be on the safe side, I suggest you download that coupon then print out one for each member in your party. That free coupon saves you $9 – $12.50 per adult admission!

The Santa Fe Botanical Garden at Museum Hill is the other participating New Mexico garden. You can go free on May 9 using the Santa Fe Botanical Garden free admission coupon. That saves $7 per adult admission.

If you’re traveling elsewhere, there are many other gardens in other states across the country participating in the National Public Gardens Day free admission offer.

National Public Gardens Day events at the ABQ Botanic Garden will run from 10 am – 2 pm on May 9, with demonstrations and talks on gardening in the southwest, including water-wise gardening. Activities include making a koi kite and recycled notebooks.

The ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden free admission coupon does not include the Aquarium – sorry! Stay outdoors and enjoy the spring scenery instead.

Albuquerque BioPark Botanic Garden is located at 2601 Central Avenue NW.

$1 Off Admission to Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival Spring Show

Filed under Arts, Events, Shopping

Comments Off on $1 Off Admission to Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival Spring Show

The Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival spring show is coming up this weekend but don’t pay the full admission price… get $1 off using the coupon.

The Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival will be springing out at EXPO New Mexico from March 7 – 9, 2014.  Around 200 artists and craftspeople from all over the country display their work, give demonstrations, and, of course, sell their arts and crafts. All kinds of creative arts are represented, from glassmaking and painting to pottery and jewelry… and much more.

Kids can enjoy creating their own work of art at the Kids’ Creation Station, and naturally there will be food vendors to feed you everything from fajitas to gyros, plus specialty food items to buy from the culinary booths – and plenty of free samples! The festival also includes live entertainment, although at time of writing their website doesn’t give the entertainment schedule yet. Hmm, that’s strange, they usually have the line-up in place by now. But previous performers have included Syd Masters and the Swing Riders and Mariachi Fiesta Internacional, so expect some good grooves whoever is on the roster this year.

Regular adult admission is $7 or you can get a 3-day pass for $9, but save a buck by printing out the Festival’s $1 off admission coupon valid on either a one day ticket or the festival pass. Plus it’s free admission for kids aged under twelve.

If you use the $1 discount coupon, it’s good for one admission or pass only, so you need a coupon for each adult going to the show.

  • When: Friday March 7 through Sunday March 9, 2014
  • Times: 10 am – 5 pm

The Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival takes place at the EXPO New Mexico Manuel Lujan building. Be prepared to pay $5 for parking at the fairgrounds.

Youth Summer Fun Pass For Buses and NM Rail Runner Express: Ages 10-18

Comments Off on Youth Summer Fun Pass For Buses and NM Rail Runner Express: Ages 10-18

The Albuquerque Youth Summer Fun Pass is great for wheeling around this summer 2013, with local attractions and leisure discounts too.  Shame it’s only for youngsters, but I don’t think that even with a miracle moisturizer I’d pass for 18.

This transportation pass used to be called the ABQ RIDE Summer Fun Bus Pass, but now the pass has been extended from just the ABQ RIDE buses. The new Youth Summer Fun Pass for summer 2013 also includes Rio Metro buses, the New Mexico Rail Runner Express, and Santa Fe Trails buses.

The pass costs $15 and it gives unlimited rides to students ages 10 – 18 until July 31, 2013.

PLUS they get discounts with pass partners:

  • Cliff’s Amusement Park – $5 discount on admission
  • ABQ BioPark BOGO deal – Buy one BioPark pass and get another one of equal or lesser value free
  • City of Albuquerque Swimming Pools – Get 10 free admissions
  • Hinkle Family Fun Center BOGO Deal – Buy one regular price attraction and get another one of the same attraction free. Each person can claim one BOGO free deal per visit, per day.
  • iT’Z-Family Food & Fun – Buy $5 in game points and get $5 in game points free.
  • Maxwell Museum of Anthropology free admission. I’m a bit confused by that one as I thought the Maxwell Museum was free anyway!

The Rio Metro and New Mexico Rail Runner Express website at this link also has a giveaway drawing to win two Pitbull & Ke$ha concert tickets for the concert on June 20, 2013 at Isleta Amphitheater. Online entry must be made by June 15, and although entry is free and no purchase is required, if you do buy or already have a Youth Summer Fun Pass, you get two entries to the drawing!

The drawing is for age 18+ only, which baffled me for a moment, but there’s a space on the entry form for a parent or legal guardian aged 18+ to enter on behalf of a youngster with a Youth Summer Fun Pass!

Albuquerque Airport Parking Coupons

December 20, 2012 by  
Filed under Services, Weekend & Day Trips

Comments Off on Albuquerque Airport Parking Coupons

If there’s one thing I hate, it’s paying top dollar to park my car. What am I talking about? I hate paying top dollar for anything – ha!

Well cheapskates, here are two Albuquerque Airport parking lots with deals and discount coupons to park just minutes away from Albuquerque International Sunport if you’re taking a trip out of town… perhaps to visit family for the holidays.

Albuquerque Airport Parking on University Boulevard just south of Sunport Boulevard offers three parking deals:

  • One Day Free Parking coupon with a minimum two day stay, valid through 2012.
  • Frequent parking rewards program to receive a certificate for up to 7 days of free airport parking when you notch up 10 points. You get 1 point per visit, plus 3 free points just for joining the program, plus a bonus point on your birthday!
  • Military Parking  – Active military personnel with ID receive a discount on parking, and deployed troops park free – you need to contact them in advance and show proof of deployment.

The lot’s official address is 1501 Aircraft Avenue SE, and it’s just opposite the turn off to the handy airport post office on George Road that I often use if I’m in that area, as there are never long lines.

Park and Shuttle coupons are currently for members of specific groups only, on covered or uncovered parking through 2012.

  • $1 off the daily rate if you’re a member of AAA, or for Military, Sandia National Laboratories, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Honeywell. Take necessary proofs as requested on the coupon.
  • 50 cents off the daily rate for corporate customers. Not sure how they check that you’re ‘corporate’, but there you go. They request ID and a business card if you have one.

Park and Shuttle is located at 2909 Yale Boulevard SE, just south of the Gibson intersection.

Shuttles run very frequently between both these airport parking facilities and Albuquerque International Sunport.
