Albuquerque Airport Parking Coupons

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.

Albuquerque Coupons for Visitors

Comments Off on Albuquerque Coupons for Visitors

As visitors arrive for Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, it’s worth knowing about these
Albuquerque discount coupons from the Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau. Some are only good for use by visitors to Albuquerque, not residents, but if you’re on a trip to Albuquerque through December 31, 2012, or you’ve got friends or family in town, these are definitely worth checking out.

Albuquerque CVB coupon deals include:

  • $2 off admission to Unser Racing Museum
  • Two for the price of one adult admission to Tinkertown Museum (open through October 31, 2012)
  • $1 off admission to the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History
  • Standard Diner free appetizer with the purchase of an entree
  • La Fonda Del Bosque 10% off lunch and 15% off breakfast at the restaurant in the National Hispanic Cultural Center
  • $10 off a food order of $25 or more at Prairie Star Restaurant and Wine Bar, the Santa Ana Golf Club restaurant
  • $10 off at Twin Warriors Golf Club
  • Hinkle Family Fun Center: Buy one $5 Fun Card for the game rooms and get another free $5 card
  • 10% off Tours of Old Town adult tickets
  • Free souvenir wine glass with a wine flight at St Clair Winery & Bistro

Plus discounts at shops, galleries, and hotels. Some hotels (and balloon ride companies) expressly exclude the coupon rate during Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Other hotel coupons don’t mention blackout dates, so it might be worth calling to see if the coupon rate applies, assuming rooms are still available…

The printable coupons expire December 31, 2012, unless they say otherwise, and some coupons can only be used by non-Albuquerque residents. Sorry locals! The coupons rather unhelpfully don’t tell you which ones are only eligible for non-residents, so you have to call the businesses and ask.

I count more than 50 Albuquerque coupons in all, and I haven’t done the math, but Albuquerque Convention & Visitors Bureau says the coupons are worth over $400 in discounts at attractions, restaurants, and lodging.

Southwestern Muscle Car Nationals $2 Discount Coupon

March 27, 2012 by  
Filed under Events

Comments Off on Southwestern Muscle Car Nationals $2 Discount Coupon

Save on admission to the Southwestern Muscle Car Nationals in Albuquerque from March 30 to April 1, 2012.

Regular admission to the Southwestern Muscle Car Nationals 2012 at Expo New Mexico is $12 for adults, but you can print out a Racing Southwest coupon to get $2 off!

They say it’s for Facebook friends, but I can’t see that Facebook has anything to do with it; the coupon is right there at the Racing Southwest website – click the car coupon/photo to get it, or if you’re having trouble with that, go direct to the Southwestern Muscle Car Nationals ticket discount coupon here.

You might also be able to get the advance ticket deal from NAPA Auto Parts stores I mentioned earlier this month, although I notice they’ve changed the discount from $3 off to $2 off since then. So the coupon deal is just as good, and NAPA may have run out of advance tickets by now. But, some people don’t like printing coupons, so if tickets remain, the offer is$2 off advance tickets to  Southwestern Muscle Car, at NAPA locations in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Belen, Santa Fe, and Edgewood. 

The admission price for children aged 9 to 12 years is $3. However it looks like you can also get free tickets for children from Wendy’s – so just check it out when you’re in there.

Show admission is free for kids aged 8 and under with a paying adult.

I love seeing these amazing cars – although I’d be terrified to drive one. I’ve never had a driving accident or scrape in my life (touch wood) but you know I’m just going to reverse into a lamp post in one of these beauties and ruin the gleaming paintwork.

Southwestern Muscle Car Nationals takes place at Expo New Mexico from Friday March 30 to Sunday April 1, 2012. Hours are:

  • Friday March 30:  5 pm – 10 pm. 
  • Saturday March 31: 10 am to 10 pm 
  • Sunday April 1:  10 am to 6 pm

Ultimate Home Showcase Discount or Free Admission

Comments Off on Ultimate Home Showcase Discount or Free Admission

Albuquerque’s 2012 Ultimate Home Showcase takes place on March 17-18, with several ways to get discount admission or maybe even free admission!

The Ultimate Home Showcase home show at Expo New Mexico on March 17-18, 2012, includes the International Green Ideas Show and the Construction and Architectural Suppliers Show, with exhibitors showing ideas for home design and decor, remodeling, sustainable lifestyle and energy, and green technology.

Regular admission to the show is $8 for adults, $5 for seniors over 65 and kids aged 13-18. Admission is free for children aged 12 and under.  But here’s how to get discount or even free admission:

  • Print this BOGO coupon to get two admissions for the price of one, via New Mexico Market Place (or just pick up a copy of NM Market Place to get the coupon!)
  • Get $3 off adult admission using the coupon at the Ultimate Home Showcase website, or here’s the direct link to the PDF $3 off coupon.
  • Free admission for seniors on Sunday morning (no coupon needed).
  • Free admission for bike riders and for those who take the bus and show a receipt or pass.
  • Pay $1 for admission if you take a computer for recycling.

The show has a bit of a St. Patrick’s Day theme going for kids, with a visit by the leprechaun Sir Hugh Elliott (sounds like a very leprechauny name) on Saturday March 17 from 10 am to 3 pm, when he’ll be telling stories and giving out chocolate coins. Anyone dressed as a leprechaun or other nature spirit or sporting a British Isle theme costume can get a professional free photo taken!

Other fun activities include a scavenger hunt, hydrogen-powered car races, a PNM giveaway of compact florescent light bulbs, and a lasso demonstration.

Stephanie Kaylan of Wanagi Wolf Fund and Rescue will also be at the show on Sunday March 18 from 10 am to 4 pm with a couple of her wolves.

Ultimate Home Showcase takes place:

  • When:  March 17-18, 2012
  • Time:  Saturday 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday 10 am – 4 pm
  • Where: Expo New Mexico, Manuel Lujan Buildings A and B.

The Expo New Mexico parking fee is usually $5. I believe the Ultimate Home Showcase used to be called the Albuquerque’s Home Builders & Remodelers Showcase; all these home shows seem to be changing their names this year!

Comments Off on Pharmaca $5 Off Coupon

Love Pharmaca coupons? So do we.  This one is nicely timed for last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts, valid until February 14, 2012.

If you’re looking for natural beauty products, eco home products, or homeopathic remedies, use this printable Pharmaca coupon in store to get $5 off a $50 purchase, valid through February 14.  The coupon can’t be used for online purchases, nor for prescriptions, services, newspapers, and gift cards.

I also notice Pharmaca has a sale for:

  • 20% off Dr Hauschka bath, body, and hair products including some gift sets and beauty
  • 25% off all Tru Melange scented candles
  • 25% off Sweet Dreams wraps and pillows in mint and lavender scents (in-store only).

According to an email, those sale discounts are good to February 28, 2012. But as these would also make great Valentine’s gifts, you might want to waft along to Pharmaca earlier!

If you’ve never shopped Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy, they sell:

  • Beauty essentials, natural cosmetics, and skin care including Dr Hauschka, Jane Iredale, Juice Beauty, Kiss My Face, Burts Bees, Avalon, Jurlique, Alba, and more.

….and quite a lot more. I could spend hours in there. 

If you sign up at the website for the Pharmaca email newsletter, they send coupons and discounts (like these ones) that do not appear on their website.

The Albuquerque Pharmaca location is at 8910 Holly Ave NE.

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.

Park and Shuttle coupons include:

  • First day free when you park for three days or more
  • $1 off the daily rate coupon
  • $2 off the daily rate for long term parking, if you park for 14 days or more 

Park and Shuttle is located at 2909 Yale Boulevard SE, just south of the Gibson intersection. You can only use one coupon per visit, so obviously work out which is the best deal for you according to how long you’re parking.  I don’t see any expiry date on these deals, but if you’re reading this in some future time warp, just check the current Park and Shuttle coupons.

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

This 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 any lines!
