I’ve been so busy running around on adventures that they I have hardly taken a moment to talk about any of July’s Resolutions.
If you are an adventure seeker , on a budget, like me. You will find it very costly find entertainment for the whole family and if you try to go “bare bones” you end up missing a lot of the fun because let’s face it… not much is free anymore.
So this month I set out to find local deals.
I’m not setting out to become the next “Crazy Coupon Dude” but just making an effort to find deals or discounts on activities that I or my family would normally enjoying.
Let’s start with the “big boys”, Groupon and Living Social.
I was able to grab some really nice discounts just this month alone.
I just check it once a day and look out for the coupon codes, I also suggest downloading the apps for special discounts.
I was about to get the Darien Lake passes at half off. A $50 savings.
4 tickets to the AMazing Mirror Maze for $7 with coupon code. Not my favorite thing but what a deal.
Patti has been bugging me to det her tickets to the Russian Nutcracker for 5 years but they were always too expensive. Bamm…2 Decent Seats for $118 down from $180.
Even Tickets for the Great NYS Fair were cheaper than the normal advance ticket sales.
I’m researching a nice get away over the winter on Groupon (Always read the fine print)
I always find use in those “enjoy the city” coupon books that you can find almost any major city. Apart from coupons to your favorite local restaurants and service providers, you can get lots of “frees” to local zoos, mini golf, bowling, and other activities your do all the time at full price.
Are you a Verizon wireless customer? Did you know that they give you reward points every month that you can use towards Gift CArds and local restaurants and activities?
I have so many that I don’t know what to do with.
I know that are so many other out there that I use from time to time.
Stub-hub – for tickets to sporting events
Brad’s Deals – shopping
Amazon Prime – can’t live with out.
What else is out there that you use yourself to find great deals?
