Two things make the long post-Christmas winter blahs easier to handle: you can flee the city for a change of scenery or convince your negligent friends to finally make good on their promise to visit. If your list of possible destinations includes cities of the Northeast, you may be in luck: Megabus is giving away 200,000 free bus tickets this winter, including 48,720 specifically for buses headed for New York, between Jan. 12 and March 1. Enter the code “WOW200K” on the Megabus site to claim your deal.
The deal covers buses departing from Albany, Amherst, Atlantic City, Baltimore, Boston, Buffalo, Hartford, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Providence, Rochester, State College, PA; Syracuse, Toronto, and Washington. Those free tickets will probably go fast, because this long cold winter is just starting.
