Special Tip: Want free 2014 Los Angeles County Fair Concert tickets?

Most people are unaware of this, but a few free general admission tickets to the End of Summer Concert Series at the L.A. County Fair are made available at the ticket kiosk located on Rose Lane at 3 p.m. on the day of the concerts. All are first come first served and each person requesting a free ticket must be present. Please note that concert tickets are separate from fair admission, you must still pay for admission to the fair. You can read more about it on the bottom page of the Map pdf file from the LA County Fair.

(For Saturday or Sunday discount code go HERE)

According to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Facebook page, get a free ticket on Friday April 11, 2014 by purchasing a copy of the Long Beach Press Telegram.

This is what they said:

The Long Beach Press-Telegram offers a Free Friday ticket, but you will have to purchase the Friday, April 11th paper for the details.”

You can read the official GPLB Facebook page post here.

Oh yeah, you might also need some of these, the noise can get pretty loud at times, especially recommended for small children.

Also, note that kids 12 years and under get free admission when accompanied by a ticket-bearing adult. You can find the full schedule of the Long Beach Grand Prix at their site. And see photos from last year of the Grand Prix here.

Best Black Friday Deals – Revealed

black-friday-dealsThis year’s Black Friday Deals are not found at your local store, but instead online at a special page that Amazon has set up.

Amazon has special limited edition TV’s, tablets, games, toys, clothes, everything you could ever image at “door buster” prices. Most have free shipping and you never have to stand in line.

Best way to get them is to setup your account with one click shopping, then check out the deals HERE and scroll through them. It will tell you at exactly what time it will go on sale.

Then all you need to do is BUY!

Really, this is how I have been getting 50-75% off the regular prices. Often cheaper than what I could ever find at storefront doorbuster deals.

LA Auto Show Free and Discount Offer Options

LA Auto Show mercedes benzThe 2013 LA Auto Show is Nov. 22-Dec 1, 2013, and I for one love this event. Below are the 2013 LA Show free discount admission ticket information.

Plus I’ve added a few tips to make your trip more enjoyable along with some photos I personally took during last year’s event.

2013 LA Auto Show Discount Tickets

The show runs from Friday, November 22-Dec 1, 2013, and the first discount offer is for Friday November 22, 2013. Get $4 off general admission (use discount code AUTOTRADER – price after discount=$8) if you purchase your ticket online. Kids 5 yrs old and under are free when accompanied by an adult.

2013 LA Auto Show Free Tickets

This year there doesn’t seem to be any sponsor offering free tickets that we are aware of. However, you will see some online radio, tv or local sites offering free tickets in raffles, but of course these are in limited quantity and it’s more of “winning” the tickets. So the best option is to take advantage of the discount I mentioned earlier.

For all other days besides opening day, it’s best to purchase your tickets at the door rather than online, due to the $2 online processing fee.

My LA Auto Show Tips

  1. Crowds are less and admission prices (with discounts) are less on weekdays.
  2. Arrive early, parking is available at the LA Convention Center for $15, but does fill up quickly.
  3. Park a few blocks away and save in parking.
  4. Expect to walk a lot, there’s a reason why this show is 10 days long, it is BIG!
  5. Food at the convention center is boring, so walk over to LA Live, there’s more choices. Or better yet, save your money and eat before you arrive then after your stay drive away from this overpriced area and save.
  6. Leave your beverages and food at home, they don’t allow outside food to be taken inside the show.
