imgresYes, the Cheap Bastard knows. It’s a big holiday this weekend and you figure if you can’t get the time off, you should at least be able to get a few good deals, right? Right.

Seattle Restaurant Week Returns with 3 Course Meals for $30

October 19, 2015

43GCKaHOvWUkbQA1cD-9u0um6i9jfxh6BgGjgRF5LylYo9dSzqIraszZJWq1CWCKtQjZfMU=s164I don’t know why they call the event where you can get 3 course meals for $30 at some of the city’s top restaurants Seattle Restaurant week because it lasts 11 days (not counting weekends), but they do and it’s here.

In fact, it started yesterday, but I was out of town and too busy to mention it. Still, it’s such a good deal, it’s worth mentioning.

So, I’ll repeat myself. You can get three course meals for $30 at more than 100 of the city’s top restaurants including Wild Ginger, Local 360 and most of Tom Douglas’ eateries including the Dahlia Lounge. That’s just part of the list, however.

The event runs from Oct. 18-22nd and from the 25th-29th. Some restaurants even have 3-course lunches for $15. Many require reservations, though, so you should act fast.

What are you waiting for?

Free Health Clinic at Seattle Center Next Week (10/22-25)

October 13, 2015

FINAL-Patient-Home-Page-GraphicThe Cheap Bastard hates to say it, but he hasn’t been all that impressed with the deals he’s been seeing lately. That’s why he hasn’t been doing many deals of the day. He has found one coming up that he wants you to pass the word on, especially to people who still can’t afford health insurance even under Obamacare.

There will be a four-day free health care clinic at Key Arena from Oct. 22-25th designed to help serve underserved populations. That means the working poor, the underemployed, the unemployed, those who live on the streets and those who normally wouldn’t be able to see a doctor. The volunteer-staffed event will include medical, dental and vision screenings and treatment.

Although the doors will open at 12:30 every day, anybody who plans to attend will likely want to make sure to be in line when they pass out admission tickets at 5 a.m. each day. Considering that more than 3,300 people were served during last year’s clinic, it may be worth being prepared to camp out overnight. It is worth mentioning that folks who plan to attend cannot get vision and dental services on the same day. Instead, they’ll have to return another day and wait in line again.

See the Ivar’s Exhibit Free Tonight @ Nordic Heritage Museum (10/1)

October 1, 2015

15IvarsPoster0720.inddIt’s First Thursday tonight, which means many art galleries and museums have free admission tonight, but one of the best ones may well be the one tonight at the Nordic Heritage Museum where you’ll be able to see “Keep Clam and Carry On: The Ivar Haglund Story,” a new exhibit about one of Seattle’s oldest hucksters.

The exhibit will cover the life of this wonderfully wacky clam entrepreneur featuring lots of personal artifacts, sound recordings and other cool stuff.

Not only that, but the museum will also have a performance by the Ballard High School Jazz Combo at 6 p.m. and craftmaking for kids and adults throughout the evening.

So, if you want to take in First Thursday, but don’t like the hassle of looking for parking downtown, Keep Clam and head on over to Ballard where there are still a few parking spaces left.

But just a few.

If you get there early.

Move Fast, Get Free Lifetime Park Pass For Seniors Today

October 1, 2015

imgres-2If you’re over 62 years old and you’re a National Park fan, you might be able to get a free lifetime National Park pass if yo click fast.

That’s because the National Park Service is offering a limited number of lifetime passes free. In fact, at last check, there were just under 5,000 left for the entire country. The passes are usually $10 and they give you access to 400 parks across the country.

All you have to do is download a voucher by October 8th and then redeem it for a lifetime pass at one of the National Park Service sites where you can trade it for a pass on Senior Skip Day, October 8.

Even if you miss out on this deal, you’ll still get at least one freebie if you’re 62 or over. That’s because the park service is holding Senior Skip Day on Oct. 8, when national parks throughout the country are free for the senior set.

Thanks to ThriftyNorthwestMom.

Wake Up and Smell the Free Coffee on National Coffee Day (9/29)

September 29, 2015

imgres-1Several coffee companies are offering free or cheap coffee today in celebration of National Coffee Day, which sounds like a good idea as I type this at an hour of the morning when I’d really rather be sleeping.

Too bad I don’t like coffee. Oh, well, I guess that means more for you.

At Krispy Kreme, you can get a free 12 ounce coffee and a free donut.

Top Pot is offering a 12 ounce drip or Americano.

Peet’s Coffee and Teais passing out free cups of Major Dickason’s blend when you purchase a small food item.

Whole Foods has been celebrating the day all month long by offering 12 ounce cups of coffee for just 25 cents.

At all Cupcake Royale locations you can buy one coffee drink and get a second free.

New Moms Get Free Membership at Sam’s Club

September 22, 2015

If you are the mom of a child 1 year or under, you can get a free membership at Sam’s Club, if you act fast.

Now, most Cheap Bastard followers know I’m not a big fan of Walmart or Sam’s Club, but occasionally (read: almost never) there will be a deal that I’ll list because it costs the company money and is a good deal for you. And this is one of them.

Now through Sept. 29th, the discount warehouse club chain is offering a free membership for moms-to-be and moms of at least one kid under 1 year old. And you don’t even have to leave the house to get it. Hip2Save reports that all you have to do is dial 1-888-746-7726, choose option #2, then sit on hold for the rest of your life and when someone finally answers, tell them you are calling about the New Mom Membership. Okay, Hip2Save didn’t say you’d wait for the rest of your life, but the blogger did say that she waited for 15 minutes.

You give them your name and address and they’ll give you a number you take to your local Sam’s service desk (where you may wait another couple of years or so) and you’ll get a membership card for a free year’s membership.

The deal expires Sept. 29th.

Thanks to Hip2Save.
