Here's the scoop: starting December 15, Megabus will be driving between New York City, Hartford and Amherst. To publicize that new route, 1000 freebies are being given away on the Megabus site. Use code NEWNYC at the Megabus site.
The chances for scoring a free ticket are even greater for Washington, DC residents. For them, 10,000 free seats are in play for travel between DC and Boston, Buffalo, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, Knoxville, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg (PA), Hampton (VA), Christianburg (VA), Richmond (VA) and Toronto. Whew! The code in this case is ILUVDC.

For those who prefer to drive themselves, MapQuest is giving away a year's worth of free gas to one person, every day in December. Simply go to the Mapquest site to register for the drawing (which is free). And once again: good luck!
