The Price is Right

Posted by: Jennifer Ferm

We completely and sympathetically understand that everyone is trying to save money these days. But we don’t want to hear the excuses, “It’s too expensive,” or “I’m just trying to save money,” on why you can’t attend the Chicago Auto Show.  When we’re (literally) giving tickets away to the show, we’re not going to let you use the state of the economy as an excuse.

There are numerous ways to receive free and/or discounted tickets to February’s show. And, since we’re not taking any excuses, I’ve provided below the many ways for you to receive a free or discounted ticket.

Via Social Media

Jump on the social media bandwagon, people, and click your way to free tickets. On the Official Chicago Auto Show Facebook Group (/multimedia/Facebook.asp), we’ve been handing tickets away right and left. Our most recent contest, the “Caption Contest,” includes posting clever, corresponding captions under the new weekly photo for a chance to win two free tickets.

Get Your Can to the Show

Your Pepsi can, that is. Right now, pick up a can of Pepsi to receive a half-priced weekday coupon on the back of the can. Bring the can to the show to receive your half-priced ticket.

Visit a Local Dealership

Receive discounted weekday tickets to the show just by visiting a CATA Member New-Car Dealer (while supplies last): http://drivechicago.com/section_Find_A_Dealer_2

Visit a Shell Gas Station

Receive a discounted ticket with a $15 purchase at participating Chicagoland Shell gas stations: http://www.shell.com/

Once you’re at the show…

Just because you received a free or discounted ticket beforehand, you still won’t have to break the bank while actually at the show. You can now save on food and drinks at the show by visiting Tailgate Alley in the North Building during weekdays. Chicago Restaurant Partners agreed to provide “Drive by Value Meals” for a group of four in an effort to cut meal costs. Grab a group of friends or family to receive this great discount!

The weekday deals include:

Friday, Feb. 13: Connie's Pizza (for 4) for $25
-includes pizza and four sodas (normal price: $46; savings of $21)

Monday, Feb. 16: Robinson's (for 4) for $25
-includes 4 hickory smoked pulled pork or pulled turkey sandwiches, coleslaw or potato salad and 4 sodas (normal price: $53; savings of $28)

Tuesday, Feb. 17: Vienna (for 4) for $25
-includes 4 hotdogs, 4 bags of chips and 4 sodas (normal price: $41; savings of $16)

Wednesday, Feb. 18: Connie's

Thursday, Feb. 19: Robinson's

Friday, Feb. 20: Vienna

Below, we’ve added a “taste of the Chicago Auto Show” slideshow for your viewing. So save your “I’m broke” excuse for something else and come experience what it feels like to splurge—only, you’ll feel a million times better when you realize you barely spent a dime!
