Going, fka Scott’s Cheap Flights, is celebrating the company’s eighth birthday the way everyone should celebrate their birthday: by giving presents to us. Going will be giving away one free flight each weekday throughout the month of August, as a thank you to the loyal members of the service.

Fortunately, your loyalty to Going can start right now, and you’ll still be eligible to win one of these free flights. Anyone who creates a free Going account in August will be able to win-as well as all of you long-time members. For those unfamiliar with Going (or Scott’s Cheap Flights) the company is a travel service that’s known for finding out-of-this-world cheap flight prices. In the eight years it has existed, Going says it has saved more than two million people over $500 million on flights.

Here’s how to enter to win. After you log into your Going account, find a deal you want to book. Then, head to Going’s Instagram page and find that day’s giveaway post and leave a comment about which deal you want to book. New giveaway posts will be posted each day at 6 am ET, and winners will be announced the following day. You can enter every day, just make sure you’re commenting on the current post.”If there’s one thing I love more than cheap flights, it’s free flights,” said Scott Keyes, in a statement about the sweepstakes. “Helping others be able to travel more than they thought possible is why I started Going in the first place, and that’s why I’m excited to be giving away dozens of free flights to celebrate our 8th birthday.”

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
