Friday's Freebies: Three Reminders, Two for this weekend!

Several weeks ago, in this blog, I alerted you to the fact that Southwest Airlines was throwing in a free Dollar car rental with all packages of five nights or more in the United States. Since some of these air-hotel packages are well-priced to begin with, the free car becomes icing on the proverbial cake.

Warning: you must book the package no later than Sept 30. Use the code SepSavings when booking at the Southwest Airlines website.

And do price the package against ones you'll find on other sites. While Southwest's rates are generally good (especially to Las Vegas and Orlando), they're not always unbeatable. So make sure you're really getting a deal before you bite. A lot will depend on which gateway you're flying out of, which is why I can't give definitive advice here.

Free Museums and National Parks

And as I told you last week, tomorrow's the happy day when museums and National Parks across the US will be waiving admission fees. I wish I could say "free and easy" in the case of museums but you must actually download tickets in advance to get in. And the tickets are limited to two per household. Still a bit of a gimme is better than none.

For info on which museums are involved and to get the tickets, click here.

Its easier to get in free to the National Parks. Just show up at the one nearest you. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!
