Comments Off on Cheap Movies ASUNM Southwest Film Center

I’ve mentioned ASUNM Southwest Film Center before as they sometimes give free movie screenings. Here’s a reminder that even without a freebie, tickets are still a good deal.

ASUNM Southwest Film Center is a student run, independent theater on the University of New Mexico Campus, and movies are open to the public as well as to UNM students and staff.

Ticket prices are $5 for the public, $3 for UNM students, and $4 for UNM faculty and staff. You can also get a $15 student season pass or $20 general season pass.

The current 2015 film season, shown on Thursdays through Sundays, include:

  • Telluride Mountain Film Festival (February 13 and 14)
  • Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times (February 26-March 1)
  • Toy Story (March 26-29) kids get in free with a paying adult
  • East of Eden (April 2-5) come celebrate the 60th anniversary of this film
  • Birdman (April 16-19)

Movies vary widely and there are many more in the series, I’m just picking out the ones I like the sound of! See the full ASUNM Southwest Film Center schedule.

The ASUNM Southwest Film Center is located on the lower level of UNM’s Student Union Building. Enter from Central Avenue as if going to Popejoy Hall, then go past Popejoy and it’s the next block on the left.

Comments Off on Free Amazon Prime 2-Day Shipping for College Students

If you need your text books or anything else in a hurry, the Amazon Prime service includes free two-day shipping for speedy delivery, with no minimum order. The service usually costs $79 a year, but college students joining this free Amazon Student membership program get free Amazon Prime for six monthsStudents signing up for the program by October 15, 2013, are also entered into a drawing to win $30,000 in cash.

Other Amazon Student membership benefits include student discounts and news on offers, giveaways, and promotions especially for students. It’s free to sign up for Amazon Student with free Amazon Prime, you just need to verify that you’re a current student at a college or university by providing a .edu email address. Once that .edu address is verified, use any email you choose to manage your Amazon account.

The free Amazon Prime offer does not include movie streaming, nor the Kindle Owners Lending Library to borrow books. At the end of the free six months, members are switched to a discounted Amazon Prime membership costing $39 a year – which is still a saving on the regular $79 rate, and this does include video streaming and the Kindle library. If you don’t want to be automatically upgraded, make sure you select the “do not upgrade” option during your free six months.

See all the terms, details, and benefits of the free Amazon Prime Student deal, which you can also use to order products other than books – perhaps all the kitchen stuff or electronics you’ll need to kit out your new student digs. As long as they item is eligible for Amazon Prime shipping, you’re good to go.

Existing Amazon Prime members (who are students) can still register for Amazon Student, and get a refund on the remainder of their subscription.

I’d always encourage you to support your local independent bookstore such as Bookworks and Page One, or, of course, the University of New Mexico Bookstore if you study at UNM.  But if you buy online anyway, this is a great way to save on shipping costs, especially if you need your books in a rush because you’ve left your studying till the last minute (Tsk tsk! Yeah, I know, we’ve all done it…)

NOT A STUDENT AND WANT TO TRY FREE AMAZON PRIME?

Everyone else can still try Amazon Prime with a free one month trial. The free month trial includes unlimited instant video streaming of movies and TV shows.  Be sure to cancel your subscription before the free trial ends or select “do not upgrade” once you’re registered for the freebie, if you don’t want your credit card to be automatically charged for the annual $79 subscription at the end of the trial period.

Disney’s The Lion King Cheap Tickets for Students

Comments Off on Disney’s The Lion King Cheap Tickets for Students

Disney’s The Lion King is currently on stage in Albuquerque at Popejoy Hall, and students can get cheap tickets if they join the rush!

The Lion King plays at Popejoy Hall until October 28, and although regular tickets range in price from $52.50 to $152.50, students can get tickets for $27.50 during The Lion King student rush on selected performances.

The student rush tickets are available one hour before curtain time, for the evening performances on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.  You need to take Student ID to prove your eligibility – that includes students at UNM and CNM, Albuquerque Public Schools and Rio Rancho Public Schools, and indeed all students with ID from anywhere!

The student rush tickets are NOT available for Friday evening shows, all day Saturday, or the Sunday matinees.

See The Lion King performance times here, and be at the Popejoy Hall Box Office at the entrance to Popejoy Hall one hour prior to curtain. (I’d turn up earlier, there could be a line!) Take valid student ID, and each student can only buy one ticket.

The Tony Award-winning Broadway show features Elton John and Tim Rice’s familiar score, including the Oscar-winning song Can You Feel The Love Tonight and Circle of Life.

Hope some students feel the love by snagging some discount tickets, and have a roaring good time at The Lion King!

Thanks to Suzanne for tipping us off about the student rush tickets!

Comments Off on The Limited 50% Off Dresses & Jewelry Flash Sale: August 29

50% off The Limited dresses and jewelry sale today from 5 pm with the promo code or in stores!

Well ladies, they say you can never be too rich or too thin. Personally I think you can never have too much Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in the freezer, but that’s probably why I’ll never manage the ‘too thin’ part. (I’ve long ago given up hope of being too rich.) Also, I reckon you can never have too many frocks or too much BLING,
I mean tasteful jewelry, so today’s 50% off deal at The Limited grabbed my glittering eye.

Today, Wednesday August 29 from 5 pm only, The Limited’s Fashion Frenzy sale gives 50% off all dresses and jewelry either in store, or shopping online at The Limited using the promo code: FRENZY

The info came by email from The Limited so I don’t have a link for you, just shop in store from 5 pm till closing, or online with the promo code FRENZY from 5 pm to midnight.  (If you’re one of our readers from outside New Mexico and on a different time zone, those times from 5 pm are valid for your local time wherever you are.)

The 50% discount is on the original ticket prices only, and is not valid on markdowns.

Finally, here’s a reminder that The Limited offers a teacher and student 15% discount every day in stores. You need to take your student or educator ID and the 15% off is only good in shops, not online.

The Limited in Albuquerque is located in the Cottonwood Mall.

Comments Off on UNM and CNM Free Bus Passes

College students are always trying to find ways to save money, so it’s good news to hear that the Albuquerque Free Bus Pass program by ABQ Ride continues for the 2012-2013 academic year.

Students, faculty, and staff of University of New Mexico and the University of New Mexico Hospital, and students at Central New Mexico Community College can ride Albuquerque buses absolutely free.

Free bus passes are available to any qualifying students or faculty, but you must get a sticker on your student or staff ID to take advantage of the freebie.

UNM and CNM students qualify for the free sticker if you are currently enrolled at either of the schools. Be prepared to prove that you are a current student by taking your student ID and a copy of your current class schedule when you pick up your sticker.

Find full information on the passes and where, when, and how to collect them for:

Stickers for the last (2011-2012) academic year are only valid until August 31 for UNM and until September 3 for CNM, so if you plan on using ABQ Ride services, make sure you pick up the new one.

The bus passes work on all Albuquerque public buses including the Rapid Ride, but may not be valid for special city events. Even if you don’t use public transportation often, it never hurts to be prepared with a free bus pass in your pocket!

Educators and students receive a 15% discount at The Limited women’s fashion store.

The discount for teachers and students is valid on purchases made in stores. They don’t exactly shout about it, it’s hidden away in the Frequently Asked Questions on their website under The Limited Promotions, so you have to know to ask for it. Now you know, so ask for it!

You need to take your student or educator ID and the 15% off is only good in stores, not online. It also can’t be combined with other coupons. There’s no expiry date – this is an ongoing promotion.

Free Yoga Class for Kids Feb 25 & New Student Deal

Comments Off on Free Yoga Class for Kids Feb 25 & New Student Deal

Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque has a cool freebie for kids, and a hot deal for new students…

If you want your children to try yoga (that’ll keep ’em out of mischief), Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque is running a free yoga class for kids this Saturday February 25, 2012, at 12 noon. The 45-minute class is for youngsters aged 3 to 12, and they say this is a non-heated class. In fact, they’re giving out snow cones! The class is at the Westside studio.

For those of us a little older, the Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque new student special gives new yoga practitioners a two week unlimited pass for $25, to take any number of yoga classes in those two weeks.

Bikram Yoga is also known as hot yoga, as students practice in a heated room for more safety and suppleness when doing the asanas, and also it apparently helps with detoxing and metabolism. Expect to sweat, baby! Here are the things that students new to Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque should know when attending their first class.

I’m also pleased to see that Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque offers a 10% discount on class packages for veterans, police officers, and fire service personnel, and spouses.

That 10% discount extends to seniors 65+, full time college students, and youngsters aged 11-17. Take ID!

Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque studios are on the Eastside at 1930 Juan Tabo NE, and on the Westside at 3611 NM Highway 528 / Alameda NW, which is half a mile west of Corrales Road and Alameda.
