While onboard, zone out to Sirius radio, treat mitts to a warm scented towel, or surf the Internet with complimentary WiFi. Blue Groundways also offers onboard bistro service (with fresh, non-frozen fare), pillows and blankets on hand, a climate-controlled cabin, and Starbucks brews. If you're of the legal age, a complimentary alcoholic beverage will find its way to your hand; if you aren't, then enjoy an equally complimentary soda. You can also lounge back in spacious seating and pass the time with Blockbuster movies.

Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
The Wave Carwash grants sullied autos 24/7 access to their facility for mighty but gentle washing procedures. The self-serve bays empower visitors to liberate their cars from muck and gunk with a number of grime-fighting weapons ($2.25 for four minutes). The presoak loosens dirt, bugs, and construction horses that cars collect over time, and a spot-free rinse blasts away any lasting debris. For a polished shine, car owners can swaddle their vehicles in high-pressure wax and a tri-gloss solution that applies a coat of glossy renewal. With touchless automatic options that range from express ($4) to ultimate ($9), horse-less carriages whinny as robotic nozzles pamper their exteriors until they reach the chosen level of cleanliness. The soft-touch premium package treats automobiles with extra delicacy and includes a two-step hot-foam bath, soft-touch scrub, and vortex dry ($5–$10). To help maintain Mother Nature's receding hairline, The Wave also uses an environmentally friendly sand-filtration process.
