How it works: Tourism partners from across the state will submit deals that meet specific criteria, including 50 percent discounts and buy-one-get-one-free specials. These cost-saving incentives will be promoted through the department’s social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and via e-mails and weekly SMS text messages. 

 The T3 deals will be posted each Tuesday on The cost-saving incentives will have various expiration dates, making this promotion ideal for both last-minute travelers and those with more planning time to enjoy Tennessee.
