Reminders This Weekend ~ Free Comic Book, Photo Deals, Free Admission to Sams Club, Museums, Chandler Greek Festival and Ice Skating (w/ food donation)
There are so many free things going on this weekend. You shouldn’t have to pay a penny for any entertainment! Plus, it might get pretty hot this weekend and lots of these activities are indoors. Yea for AC! Free Comic Book Day is Saturday, 5/3. Anyone who comes into a participating store will receive a free comic book. Sam’s Club is having an Open House this weekend. Everyone gets in free May 2 – May 4th. There is also no upcharge at the register. Just visit member services when you get there to get a special shopping pass. They typically have lots of samples out too. Just a reminder that Cadi pointed out, they only accept Discover or Mastercard as credit options.
They also take debit or cash. Thanks for the reminder Cadi!
——————————————————————————————————————- If you’re looking for something unique to do in Chandler this weekend, here’s your reminder . . . If you live in the Chandler/Mesa area, you can print a coupon for two free admissions to the Greek Festival. There was also a coupon in the recent ValPak mailer. If you live in the area, check for that and save some ink, or use it for more admissions. Here’s what their website says. ST. Katherine Greek Orthodox Church transforms into a mini “Greek Village”

I haven’t posted about this for a long time. You can get FREE admission to the Phoenix Children’s Museum the first Friday of each month. That’s this Friday, April 4th, from 5 pm -9 pm. Target sponsors the event. No coupon is needed. We’ve never been there, but I hear it can be crowded on Fridays. Please leave a comment if you have any additional feedback or advice for anyone. The Museum is easily accessible from I-10 via the Washington Street and 7th Street exits. We offer free on-site parking. Take the Free Dash Shuttle or take the Metro Light Rail! If riding the Rail, exit at the 3rd Street/Washington station (westbound) or 3rd Street/Jefferson station (eastbound). It is a short walk north on 7th Street to the Museum. Enter through the historic entrance on the west side of the building, adjacent to 7th St. A comment from BMB: Super busy on first Friday. Parking is hard unless you are there right on time. (Thanks, BMB!)
