Uber Travel Discount

Again this year, the NY Auto Show is partnering with Uber and offering a free ride (up to $30) to or from the event using the Uber app and promo code NYAUTOSHOW2014 (according to the website currently, this is still the most up-to-date code).

Promo Codes

The New York International Auto Show’s ticket purchase form includes the ability to add promotional codes. Certain workplaces and organizations offer exclusive discount codes for the event. For instance, AAA has offered its members discounts in the past with codes like AAA16.

Currently, we were unable to find any codes valid for 2017 that work, but you might be able to find some online closer to the event date.

Occasional Sales

Sometimes, the NY Auto Show runs brief sales on ticket purchases. For instance, it ran a Valentine’s Day sale on February 14th only, which was announced on its Facebook page. That sale is over now, but we suggest following NYIAS on Facebook in case other or future sales are announced.
