Buy $25 Gift Card to Red Robin, Get Free Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 Movie Ticket

robin

If you buy a $25 Red Robin gift card, you get a free Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 movie ticket from Fandango, in theaters April 17th.

Go here to purchase your gift card, and there isn’t a shipping charge.

The ticket is valid for one admission (up to $10 value) to see Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 through Fandangdo ticketing.  The reward code must be activated between 2/16/15 and 4/30/15.  The movie ticket expires 5/7/15.   Harkins, AMC, and other theaters are listed on Fandango’s website.  It seems to indicate you have to see that movie, but usually, you can see any movie you want.  Don’t count on that, though!

It does appear that you could buy the $25 gift card elsewhere, and enter the gift card number online.  Juli did this last time at Fry’s to get the fuel points, and then the gift card number said it was already used and she had to email them.  So, if you go this route, just beware.  :)

Pogo Discount Code for Everyone & WINNER of Two Passes!

pogo_fat_cats

Congrats to Jen Z. (je . . . el@gmail.com)!  She won two Pogo Passes and is set for fun!

For the rest of you … enjoy the passes you already have or consider getting them.  We love ours and think they’re a super value — as in AMAZING VALUE!!

Here’s what Pogo Passes include, for a full year:

To purchase:  Go to the Pogo Pass website (That link should get you the $39.98 rate, which is $60 off.  If not, use the code BARGAIN.)

  • Castles & Coasters (ONE visit anytime, unlimited rides & goofy golf)
  • Sunsplash (ONE visit anytime, confirmed it’s good next season!)
  • Phoenix Zoo (TWO visits, anytime)
  • Makutu’s Island (TWO visits, Monday – Friday)  NEW!
  • Diamondbacks Games (TWO games, season over now, but will be back next season)
  • Rattlers Games (THREE games, dates will be added throughout season)
  • i.d.e.a. Museum (TWO visits anytime, except opening weekends – three weekends per year)
  • ASU Sporting Events (women’s basketball, soccer, wrestling, volleyball, gymnastics, track and field)
  • Enchanted Island (FOUR visits, Fridays & Saturdays, most rides included)
  • Jump Street (ENDS on 4/15; Pump it Up starts on 4/6; TWO visits, Monday & Wednesdays, Chandler or Glendale)
  • Pump it Up (begins 4/6; TWO visits during normal business hours, Monday – Friday)
  • Stratum Laser Tag (TWO visits, dates and times listed)
  • Phoenix Rock Gym (TWO visits, gear is $5, if needed)
  • Tempe Paintball (TWELVE visits, one per month, not Saturdays, includes gun rental, air & 100 paintballs!)
  • National Comedy Theatre (THREE visits, Fri. and Sat., with occasional Thurs. Seating is limited. Call to reserve seating.)
  • Skateland & Great Skate (TWO visits per month, skate rental not included, but can bring your own)
  • Fat Cats (Grand Opening in Gilbert is in the future and they will begin accepting passes after opening… stay tuned) NEW!
  • Brunswick Zone (Update:  AMF bought them and Pogo was not able to get them to agree to begin on the pass.  They are not longer accepting the pass.)

To purchase:  Go to the Pogo Pass website (That link should get you the $39.98 rate, which is $60 off.  If not, use the code BARGAIN.)

** Each person needs one, unless they’re 2 or younger.  Most places won’t charge admission and it’s not worth buying them one.  If you have a three year old, check the venues you will use and see what their policy is for three year olds.

Note:  They have the gift option back.  You can buy them now and redeem the code when you or your recipient is ready.  If you have a strict budget, you can buy one when you can and another later.  Use the gift card option, then activate them all at the same time, so you get the full 365 days on each pass.

wicked

And, if you buy or renew passes in March, you’re automatically entered to win four tickets to see “Wicked” at Gammage.  You will get one entry for each pass, but you won’t see any confirmation of that.  Don’t worry!  It’s automatic.

In-N-Out ~ Chandler Library Reading Program = Three Free Burgers or Cheeseburgers

chandler

March 7 – April 18th is Chandler Library Spring Ready Program where you can earn up to three free In-N-Out burgers or cheeseburgers!

You have through April 18th, to turn in your forms.

We love this In-N-Out sponsored Chandler library reading program.

  • Read five books, get a coupon for a FREE burger
  • Each child (4 – 12 yrs old) can read up to 15 books, getting THREE FREE BURGERS
  • Form simply requires you to write down the book titles & for a parent to sign it
  • You can turn in all 15 titles (same form) at once
  • Forms need to be turned in by April 18th
  • Children too young to read may participate if an adult reads with them.

You can pick up a form from any of the four Chandler library branches.  Last year, my not-so-responsible-all-the-time daughter lost the form we had picked up.  She wrote the titles on a paper and then had to transfer them to a new form when she got there.  So, I’m guessing they’ll be fine with a written list, but be prepared to transfer the titles.  This would save you from making two trips, especially if you don’t live very close to the locations.

Last year, Peoria library participated too.  So, check your local library, they may be doing it.

(Thanks for the reminder, Janine!)
