FREE & DISCOUNT ADMISSIONS COURTESY OF TARGET

You can go HERE and choose your closest city to see what free or discounted events Target sponsors in your area and if anything is going on in your area this weekend.

GrouponDISCOUNT ACTIVITIES & DINING WITH GROUPON
You can also sign up and receive a daily email from Groupon with coupon offers for savings at up to 90% in a city near you. Groupon focuses on the benefits of collective buying power and is becoming more and more popular. While yesterday they did offer a national deal for the first time with the Gap, and there have been a few multi-city deals, Groupon mostly focuses on bringing its members more localized deals on all sorts of activities, including dining in cities across the country.

Visit the Groupon Site, choose your city and enter your e-mail. Each day they feature something cool to do in your city at an unbeatable price. Each offer will require that enough people join in on the savings that day, but it’s a popular site and the number of offer sign ups are reasonable so the quotas are often met. If you want to find out more about how Groupon works, you can Visit Groupon HERE, and see if there is a city close enough to take advantage of some of the great deals. You can also check out the FAQ and they even have a short video which explains how the program works in more detail.

Weekly CinemaI posted this offer around the middle of July, and while I am a little peeved about how they make it seem like you will get an additional free ticket if your friend joins, to me this is still a good savings and I am happy with it so far.

The bottom line: When you newly subscribe to Weekly Cinema, you get 1 FREE movie ticket just for signing up. If a friend joins they get a free ticket. You do not get another ticket for getting a friend to join. So when you sign up, you get your free ticket immediately and you can go and redeem your code immediately. Starting next month, and each month, after that, you are charged $19.99. In return you get 4 movie codes worth up to $14 each redeemable on Fandango (an online movie site where you can purchase and print movie tickets). Basically this is like paying $5 a ticket.

An e-mail alert to the new codes available in your account is supposed to arrive in your inbox. I never got my e-mail for my new month, but sure enough, when I logged into my account today, there were all my new codes. For me in my area, an adult regular ticket costs $10, and a child’s ticket is $7, so I basically save $5 on an adult ticket and $2 on a child’s ticket. It is even a bigger savings if you wait to use your codes for 3D films which typically cost more. 

Keep in mind, that these codes work through Fandango. So you must have a theater that allows online tickets to be purchased through Fandango. You can go HERE and put in your zip to see if there is a theater accepting Fandango tickets nearby. You’ll know if there is as an Orange “Tickets” icon will appear if you can order online.

If you find one and are interested in this offer, just hit “Click for Details” in the banner above to sign up. You can cancel at any time, however, if you redeem your free movie ticket you will be charged a month’s subscription fee. So in case you were wondering, you can’t just sign up, get the free ticket, and cancel right away. You will need to belong for at least one month.
