3 Free Entries Not to Miss While in New York
Million Mile Secrets team member Scott is especially excited about the new places they’ve added in New York!
He says the American Museum of Natural History is fantastic and it’s especially fun for folks who love dinosaurs! He says the Intrepid is a must-see for those of y’all who want to view everything from fast airplanes to submarines.
The beautiful New York Botanical Garden is near the Bronx Zoo so you could do both on the same trip.
Just show your Bank of America (or Merrill Lynch) debit or credit card at the door along with a photo ID!
Here are cards that qualify:
- Bank of America Alaska Airlines (Personal)
- Bank of America Alaska Airlines (Business)
- Bank Americard Travel Rewards
- Bank of America Virgin Atlantic
Free entry is only good for the primary cardholder. So if you’re visiting with friends or family, they’ll need to have their Bank of America card or pay full price.
This is a great deal for folks who are traveling this weekend or looking for ways to save on entertainment.
