MegaBus is Giving Away 200,000 Free Tickets for Cyber Monday

There’s no limit to how many tickets you can snag, but you'll want to get in early.

At Slickdeals, we work hard to help you find the best deals. To do this, some of the products featured here are from our partners, who may provide us with compensation. However, this doesn’t influence our opinions. Our views are our own.

Celebrate Cyber Monday by packing your bags, because MegaBus is giving away 200,000 tickets on December 2nd. These free tickets could save you up to $40. There is also no limit to how many free seats you can snag, so let MegaBus plan your winter weekend trips.

Starting Monday the 2nd at 9 a.m. EST, Megabus will randomly spread out 200,000 free one-way tickets on nationwide travel between January 8th – February 29th, 2020. If you’re lucky you might find a free ticket for both legs of your trip, essentially making it a complimentary roundtrip.

What is MegaBus?

MegaBus is an intercity bus service throughout 100 cities in the United States and Canada. It offers low-cost travel — some fares even starting at a $1. But, it is a bus, so keep your expectations reserved.

Slickdealer Marthisdil says, “They’re fine for what they do. Better, and usually cheaper, than Greyhound, too. And FAR cheaper than an Uber or plane ticket.”

Others are not fans, like shhaggy who mentioned that the worst weekend of their life was when they were stuck on a MegaBus for 12-13 hours traveling from NYC to DC. They say, “I hate them too but I don’t think it’s anything unique to these buses. Traveling by bus is just a miserable existence. I’d rather pay for Amtrak if I needed public transportation like this (but I usually just drive).”

If you miss out on the tickets you want during Cyber Monday, you can still find $1 tickets for MegaBus. ReasonableDoubt says the trick is to book your tickets as soon as the new schedule is released, which is generally six months in advance.

They say, “Pricing goes up as more people buy for a specific date. Most, if not all, routes start at $1, however, there only may be 1 or 2 seats available for that price, for a given time slot.”  JVGeneration advises, “Prices go up to $20-$40 each way if you wait too long.”
