Pogo Changes ~ Don’t Panic — Still Love My Phoenix Area Fun Pass! :)

pogo_disneyland

I just wanted to make sure you are aware (should have received an email if you have a pass) that the Arizona Museum of Natural history will no longer be accepting the Pogo Pass beginning August 1st.   If you get there before then, you’re set!  The great news is that they’re replacing them with another museum, that they haven’t disclosed yet.  If you can get there by the end of July, you get a bonus.  You will also be able to get into the new venue.

Also be aware that the National Comedy Theater has reduced their number of visits from six to three.

I will be doing another giveaway soon.   Stay tuned!   (If you win and purchased the passes in July, you will be refunded.)

Not sure what a Pogo Pass is? . . . . . . .

For every pass you buy in July, you are automatically entered to win 4 tickets to Disneyland.  I would love it to be a Bargain Believer reader!

If these attractions are enticing to you and you have any room in you budget for family fun, this is an amazing deal!  I promise it’s legit.  (I’ve been asked that!)  This is the second year we’re had passes and we’re loving them.

Here’s what you’ll get:

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

  • Sunsplash (ONE visit anytime, valid this season)
  • Sea Life Aquarium (TWO visits, anytime)
  • Phoenix Zoo (TWO visits, anytime)
  • Diamondbacks Games (TWO games)
  • Rattlers Games (THREE games, dates will be added throughout season)
  • Arizona Museum of Natural History (TWO visits anytime, but ending in July & a new venue will be added!)
  • ASU Sporting Events (women’s basketball, soccer, wrestling, volleyball, gymnastics, track and field)
  • Enchanted Island (FOUR visits, Fridays & Saturdays, most rides included)
  • Jump Street (TWO visits, Monday & Wednesdays, Chandler or Glendale)
  • 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)
  • Brunswick Zone (TWO visits per week, shoe rental not included, excludes Sat. and some other special days)

To purchase:  Go to the Pogo Pass website (That link should get you the $39.98 rate.  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.

ANOTHER Free Redbox Rental for TODAY (Thurs. 7/17)

friends_redbox

I thought yesterday’s Redbox code was only good one day, but their Facebook page says it expires today (7/17).

Use the code FRIENDS to get another one for free.  I tried it online and it worked again, even though we got one last night.  I’m not sure how many times this will work in one day or total.  Aesha used it twice today already.  (Thanks for the updated, Aesha!)

Any movie recommendations?  I prefer clean movies to watch with the kids, but not an official “kid” movie.   Those are my favorites!
