Let’s Talk Holiday Parking (Deals)

December 14, 2012


One of the hardest things about Christmas shopping is parking. No matter whether you’re going to the mall, visiting the Pike Place Market or heading to another town, one of the most time-consuming parts of the process can be…finding parking, especially affordable parking.

Fortunately, there are two parking deals that may help a bit. One at Pike Place Market, the other in Olymipia. 

Pike Place Market–If you’re anything like the Cheap Bastard, you hate to pay for garage parking when free or cheaper street parking is available. The trouble is, any type of parking at the Market is a rare thing indeed. In fact, the CB is pretty sure that people who find free parking there never move, they just keep their cars parked there, buy another car and will the spaces to their children. 

If you can shop fast, the Market has a deal. You’llget one free hour of parking at the Market when you enter the Public Market Garage (1531 Western Ave.) between 10 am and 2 pm now through Dec. 24th. After that, all bets are off. ($3 Value, time saved cruising looking for a fee space on the street, priceless). 

Double the Free in Olympia–Now through Dec. 25th, you can get two hours of free parking in Downtown Olympia at any three hour metered space or pay station. ($1.20 value). That’s twice as much time as you’ll get at the Pike Place Market. Now all you have to do is figure out a reason to go. 

Thanks to Queen Bee Coupons.
