Freebies + cool offers to take advantage of now

Like the free ice water that made South Dakota’s Wall Drug famous, free stuff is a great treat when you’re on the road or out and about in your own town.

Here are few free offers and cool deals to take advantage of this weekend and into next week:

Free Museum Admission

On the first full weekend of each month, anyone who has flashes a Bank of America, Merrill Lynch or U.S. Trust credit or debit card and a photo ID gets free admission to more than 200 museums, science centers, gardens and other attractions participating in the Museums on Us program around the country.

Free food 

PotBelly Sandwich Shop is offering a bunch of free food items to members of its free-to-join Potbelly Perks program August 6-12.

Air fare deal

Need to bring a few suitcases of cash to the Cayman Islands? Or just want a great deal on a flight to this vacation destination?

From August 3 to 11, Cayman Airways is celebrating its 50th anniversary with some great discounted fares, plus extra perks such as 3 checked bags and lounge access, for flight from Miami, Tampa and New York booked for travel September 7 through November 7.

Fun hotel package for Pearl Jam fans

Not free – but fun: In Seattle,  The Edgewater over-the-water hotel has put together a package with the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP). The Rock the Suite package includes tickets to the museum’s Pearl Jam: Home and Away exhibition, overnight accommodations at the hotel’s Pearl Jam Suite, and signature Pearl Jam cocktails in the  Six Seven Restaurant & Lounge.

Pearl Jam fans should also note that there’s a free Pearl Jam exhibit put together by the Museum of Pop Culture in the-presecurity area of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

  1. Everyone should enter that contest… !

  2. Every Friday during the month of August, PDX Airport is hosting “Feast Fridays” – food and drink sampling from top regional chefs such as Deschutes Brewery and Stumptown Coffee.

    A new Feast-inspired item will be available to taste and purchase at the participating concessionaires’ retail space at the airport. Additionally, travelers can enter to win two Feast Portland “The Package” passes for life as part of the “Feast For Life FlyPDX” campaign and social media giveaway. Feast Portland is the Pacific Northwest’s flagship food and drink festival taking place Thursday, Sept. 13 – Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018.

    The event is part of a series of unique experiences throughout the summer at the airport celebrating the 30th anniversary of the PDX Clocktower.
