5 Best Missoula Freebies

If there is one thing I learned from my life as a college student, it’s how to sniff out a bargain. Luckily, a handful of Missoula establishments have taken good deals to the next level by offering goods and services at a 100-percent discount. Here is my list of the top five Missoula freebies.

Free samples at Big Sky Brewery

 
 

It’s a bit of a drive to get there, but if you fly, they’ll buy. The friendly bartenders at Big Sky Brewery will pour you up to four free samples of hop-juice per visit. Just be sure to bring along a designated driver if you plan to go all-in.

Free popcorn at Ace

 
 

Nothing brings back great childhood memories like a Saturday stroll through the hardware store with a nice, greasy bag of freshly-popped deliciousness in tow. It’s definitely enough to make me want to shop for garden hoses on a regular basis.

Free mistakes at Dairy Queen

 
 

I used to live pretty close to the DQ on Higgins, and every so often I’d stop by to see if the dessert-makers had any screw-ups stockpiled in the freezer. They usually did — especially on warm, busy days — and would offer them up at no cost.

Free slices of bread at Great Harvest

 
 

I’ve rewarded many a workout with a pit stop at my favorite bakery for a fresh slice of Cinnamon Swirl or Apple Crunch. More often than not, it tastes so good that I can’t leave without buying some for later. Now that’s what I call successful marketing!

Free parking at Jeannette Rankin Park

 
 

This little patch of greenery, located on Fifth Street just west of the Adams Center, is the best kept parking secret on the entire UM campus. It’s a public park, so cars can park on the street in front of it free of charge. Not bad when on-campus parking is $1 per hour, or $185 per year.
