November kicks off the season to be thankful for stuffed turkeys, cranberry sauce, Black Friday deals and, of course, family.
It’s also a great time to be grateful for freebies. This month, pucks, parks and passes all make the list. So do complimentary haircuts and tacos.
Following are nine great freebies you can gobble up this month.
Free Doritos Locos Taco at Taco Bell — Nov. 1
In the second game of this year’s World Series, Cameron Maybin of the Houston Astros stole a base. Even if you’re not a baseball fan, that’s good news for you.
Maybin’s thievery on the baseball diamond means you can score one free Doritos Locos Taco when you stop by Taco Bell from 2-6 p.m. on Nov. 1. No purchase is necessary, but the offer is available only while supplies last.
Free pass to Knott’s Berry Farm for military — Nov. 1-16 and Nov. 27-Dec. 15
U.S. military personnel — both active and retired — enjoy free admission to Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, for themselves and one guest between Nov. 1 and 16 and Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 during the park’s Military Tribute Days.
Simply show your military ID card or DD214 at the main gate to redeem the offer. Enjoy your day at the theme park, and thank you for your service!
Free Subway sandwich — Nov. 3
National Sandwich Day is Nov. 3, and Subway is celebrating by offering a free sub of equal or lesser value to anyone who purchases a sub and a 30-ounce drink.
In addition, for each sub-and-drink combo you order, Subway will donate a meal to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Talk about a win-win!
Free streaming of Sirius XM satellite radio — ongoing
November is the perfect time to sign up for your free 30-day trial of Sirius XM delivered via app, online or on a variety of smart TVs, home audio systems and media players.
You also might be eligible for a free trial of Sirius XM in your vehicle. Check out the Sirius website to find out.
Free shot at hockey for kids — Nov. 4
Winter is on the way, and that means fun activities involving ice. On Nov. 4, aka Try Hockey for Free Day, head to the rink and let your kids ages 4 to 9 drop the puck at no cost.
“Try Hockey for Free Day!” is hosted by USA Hockey and 500 local associations across the country. Each rink will have a limited amount of equipment on hand. To find a participating location and register, check out the USA Hockey website.
Free admission to national parks — Nov. 11-12
Remember those who have served our country by visiting a national park on Veterans Day weekend. Admission is free on Nov. 11-12.
As the National Park Service reminds us:
Many national parks have direct connections to the military — there are dozens of battlefields, military parks, and historic sites that commemorate and honor the service of American veterans. In addition, every national park is part of our collective identity that defines who we are and where we came from as a nation. They are tactile reminders of the values, the ideals, the freedoms that our veterans protect.
Free haircut for military at Great Clips — Nov. 11
Members of the military and veterans can get a free haircut on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, at any Great Clips location.
If you don’t have time for a trim that day, it still pays to stop by Great Clips. The chain will give you a card to redeem your gratis haircut at any time before Dec. 31.
If you are not a member of the military — but known someone who is — purchase a Great Clips service and you’ll get a card for a free haircut that you can pass along to your friend or loved one who has served.
