The People Have Spoken & For Once, The Disney Parks Have Listened (Yay Free Stuff!)

The Walt Disney Company is at a place in its existence where it rarely answers to anyone or anything; the company calls the shots, usually with no meaningful explanation and definitely without apology. We’ve seen it happen time and time again with the closing of the Virtual Magic Kingdom online game, Pleasure Island at Walt Disney World and the Country Bear Jamboree at Disneyland.

Such appears to be the case of FuelRods.

Avis Is Having A Promotion That Sounds Very Familiar

I tagged an email from Avis that I received in September but somehow forgot about it until I went to clean out my mailbox. The basic premise of the promotion is that for every two rentals of an intermediate car or larger lasting two nights or more, you’ll receive a free rental day certificate.

Military personnel do so much for us. They defend our nation and keep us safe and free, while sometimes being stationed away from home and family for years at a time, all while potentially putting their lives on the line. No wonder why total strangers will come right up to them and thank them for their service.

Most people have seen that airlines show their respect for and thanks to military personnel by letting them be part of the first groups to board a plane. But the TSA also does their part to thank these brave men and women with a gesture that’s not nearly as well known.

You Can Go Kayaking In The Shadow Of The Brooklyn Bridge…And It’s FREE!!!

Sometimes you get free stuff in places and it’s nice, but really no big deal. A 1/2″ piece of fudge at every touristy fudge store in the country. A cheap Christmas ornament (with every $50 purchase). You know what I mean. But then every once in a while you get something really cool for no cost at all!

Like go kayaking near the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. Yes, FREE in NYC!
