Comments Off on 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.

Cliffs Amusement Park 50% Off Deal for 2013 (Limited time)

December 14, 2012 by  
Filed under Attractions, Half Off Deals, Kids

If you’re already looking forward to Cliff’s Amusement Park opening up again in April 2013, the anticipation will be even sweeter if you save on some fun in this deal available for a limited time, while supplies last.

Get TWO Cliff’s Ride Passes for half price at the link, at $25 for the two passes worth $51.90.  A Ride Pass includes admission, and unlimited rides all day.

You can also add on a $25 Fun Card at half price. $37 gets you TWO Ride Passes plus the $25 Fun Card to spend on food and games and so on. That $37 package is worth $76.90.

Both Ride Passes in the offer via Groupon Albuquerque must be used in one visit by May 31, 2013. The deal info says they’re opening first weekend in April 2013. You can buy one pair of Ride Passes for yourself, and give another as a gift.

The Fun Card package really is exceptionally good value, because if you paid the regular $25 for the card alone, it means you’re getting the two Ride Passes for $6 each. (Do you follow my logic? If so, congratulations. Nobody else ever does, especially Mr Cheap.)

Quantities are limited on the Cliff’s Amusement Park deal. The deal is not available from Cliff’s, only from Groupon at the link. But… time IS limited and so is the quantity available – act fast before the offer is withdrawn.

WaterMania! is not included in a Ride Pass, but you can buy that optionally for an extra $5.

It’s slightly odd thinking about waterslides and amusement park thrills while it’s still winter. But ours is not to wonder why. Ours is just to pass on the deals, and we know ABQ on the Cheap readers LOVE Cliff’s Amusement Park discounts.

Cliff’s Amusement Park is located at 4800 Osuna Rd NE.

PF Changs 20% Off: October 16

Filed under Restaurants & Bars

Comments Off on PF Changs 20% Off: October 16

Save 20% on P.F. Chang’s China Bistro online orders for collection on Tuesday October 16, 2012.

I hesitate to say this is to celebrate the second Presidential Debate on Tuesday, but it’s certainly timed to coincide with it. We hope all parties can agree that PF Chang’s offer is good for the (household) economy…

Get a 20% discount at P.F. Chang’s for online orders to be collected on Tuesday October 16 only, using one of these promo codes. Enter either promo code: RED or promo code BLUE

Place your P.F. Chang’s order online at their website. There’s no debate about that – the tiny type in the offer says the 20% off promo code must be used for online orders, it  won’t be accepted in restaurants.  I don’t have a link for you yet, but I’ve tested the code and I know it works for October 16 collections. I’ll update with a link to the official announcement later, in case you don’t take my word for it. Why wouldn’t you take my word for it? I’m NOT a politician… :-)

The deal is at participating restaurants, and that includes P.F. Chang’s in Albuquerque, located at The Shops @ 25, 4440 The 25th Way, NE.

Comments Off on Sandia Golf Club Cheap Days in October

These Sandia Golf Club cheap days in October 2012 make this an excellent month to hit the greens.
(Well, not literally. Although I confess that when I’m playing, hitting the greens is a fairly common occurence.) I do LOVE the watery 18th hole at Sandia Golf Club, especially when viewed from the the watering hole of the Clubhouse bar…

The Sandia Golf Club discount special through the month of October lets you play a round at any time of day on Tuesdays or Wednesdays at the twilight rate.

That means golfers play for $45 including a golf cart and range balls. The $45 green fee is usually the twilight rate, which starts at 1 pm in October, but the twilight rate is extended to all day on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The regular all-day rate on those days is $70 including a cart.

Sandia Resort and Casino Golf Packages

If you’re visiting Albuquerque, or hey, if you just want a golfing staycation, Sandia Resort and Casino Golf Packages start at $128 a night through October when you use the promo code: BIRDIE
The rate includes accommodation at Sandia Resort & Casino, and one round of golf per night’s stay, plus use of the fitness center, spa, and sauna facilities.  The offer is for Sunday to Thursday nights, and the rate is per person.

Book your tee time direct with Sandia Golf ClubIt’s located at Sandia Resort & Casino. Take I-25 north to the Tramway Blvd exit and head east. You can’t miss it.

Comments Off on Free Ukulele Lessons & More

Free ukulele lessons, free recording-made-easy lessons, and some coupons for discounts on music equipment.

I can honestly confess that in all my years of hunting out freebies and deals for Albuquerque on the Cheap, this is the first-ever mention of a ukulele deal.  So (drumroll) here’s our ukulele debut for players and wannabe players…

Guitar Center Albuquerque offers free ukulele lessons every Saturday starting September 29 through October 27, 2012. The lessons at the Menaul store start at 10:15 am, and are for beginners and experienced players to learn about the ukulele and play music together. It’s the same lesson each week, although you can go to more than one if you want a refresher or if you just enjoy yourself so darn much.

Although the classes are free, Guitar Center requests advance registration at the link, and then you select the Albuquerque store – unless you’re planning a vist to one of their other national stores, in which case don’t forget to pack your ukulele.  Select the date you want and register for the available dates:  

  • September 29
  • October 6
  • October 13
  • October 20
  • October 27

Guitar Center also hosts free Recording Made Easy classes showing how to use Avid’s Pro Tools 10 on a Mac computer. Those are on Saturdays September 29 through October 20 at 10 am. Details and registration at the link.

Finally, these Guitar Center coupons offer discounts if you’re planning to buy musical equipment by October 1, 2012.  The coupons are for:

  • $10 Off a purchase of $49
  • $100 Off a purchase of $499
  • $200 Off a purchase of $999 or more

You can either use the promo code SAVING200 for online shopping, or get a printable Guitar Center coupon to take in store by filling in your name and email. Some exclusions apply, details at the link, and the coupons are valid until October 1.

Guitar Center Albuquerque is located at 6001 Menaul Boulevard NE.

It’s the last weekend of the Cliff’s Amusement Park 2012 season on September 22 -23. If you’re going for a final summer fling at this favorite Albuquerque attraction, here’s how to save…

Cliff’s Amusement Park has a promo code to give you 50% off a one day ride pass if you book your ride pass online in advance. The discount is not valid on ride pass sales at the door.

Enter Fiesta and then continue to the list of tickets and prices – the promo code should activate automatically for the 50% Ride Pass discount.  

A ride pass includes admission, and unlimited rides all day, and the regular rate is $24.95. With the half off promo code Fiesta the price is showing to me as $12.47 per ride pass.  

WaterMania! is not included in a ride pass, and if you want to add that on with the Ride Pass, it’s an extra $5 at the door.

The final open days for Cliff’s Amusement Park in 2012 are Saturday September 22 (from 10 am to 7 pm) and Sunday September 23 (from noon to 6 pm).

Annual Fundraising Harvest Dinner It’s the final day today for Early Bird tickets for the Rio Grande Agricultural Land Trust fundraiser. Granted it’s not cheap – $100 for one ticket or $190 for two, if you buy tix by August 31 (today!) for the multi-course dinner on September 16 at Los Poblanos Inn and Cultural Center. BUT it includes a cocktail reception and music, dinner by chefs from several fine restaurants (Savoy Bar & Grill, Seasons Rotisserie & Grill, Los Poblanos, Zinc Bistro) and hey, it’s a fundraiser! From September 1, ticket prices are $110 per person.

Savoy Bar and Grill Half Off Champagne on Sunday from noon to 6 pm when you buy an entree. The 50% discount is on bottles of Champagne and can’t exceed $50. The news came in an email from Savoy Bar and Grill and seems to be ongoing for now.

Wine buff? Check out my earlier New Mexico Wine Festival post with the cheapest ways to buy tickets to this weekend’s event!

Slate Street Cafe Great Wine Blends Wine Tasting on September 4 from 5 – 7:30 pm in the wine loft. It’s $18 for three “generous pours” of the featured wines plus a light appetizer. That price is per person (so I guess you can’t share), and tax and tip are extra.
