5 Ways to Save on Entertainment
1. Look for Discounts – You can find discounts for almost any activity. You can check online for coupon codes and some activities offer you a discount if you pay online instead of in-person. Your local Costco, Chamber of Commerce and fast food restaurants normally have coupons for local entertainment.
2. Discount Days – Museums, public swimming pools and amusement parks often have discount days. You can check their online calendar or call the facility and ask if they offer discount days. You might be surprised at how many discount days are available over the summer.
3. Happy Hour – Bowling alleys, movies and public swimming pools often have times during the day when they offer a discount. Movie theaters often have matinée times. You can sometimes save up to 50% off the regular price by being flexible with the time of day you do an activity.
