Celebrate the holiday season by packing your bags, because MegaBus is giving away 200,000 free tickets, just like it did for Cyber Monday. 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, December 23rd 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.”

I am a lifestyle and personal finance writer based in SoCal and have been a freelance writer since way before working remotely was the new norm. Being a wife and a mom to three young awesome kids, I have made it a regular habit to check out Slickdeals (even before joining the SD content team) to help fill up my pantry and gift closet for 50-70% off retail prices. As a family of five, we go through snacks, gifts, and toilet paper at an alarming rate, so I love a good deal and am also not afraid to dig through a thrift store to score incredible finds. When not writing about amazing deals to help people save and cool things on sale, I am taking care of my three girls, homeschooling, or stuck with my nose in a book. Sometimes, at the same time.
