FatCats Discount ~ $5 Movie Tuesdays & Pogo Freebies!

FatCats (in Gilbert) has started offering $5 movies on Tuesdays.  You can go anytime, to any movie.  It’s a “Recline-N-Dine” experience.

To sweeten the deal, make sure you bring your Pogo Pass!  You get a free round of glow golf every month.  Plus, you also can bowl at the same time or on another visit, every week.  (If you don’t bring shoes, you’ll have to pay for those.)

I haven’t gone to FatCats yet, but hope to soon.  If you’ve gone, I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments!

Note:  If you don’t have a Pogo Pass, this link or the code BARGAIN will bring the $99.98 price down to $39.98!  Full details here.

50¢ Corn Dogs at Sonic ~ Thursday

sonic_50_corndogs_001 Get 50¢ corn dogs at Sonic on Thursday (8/26).

No coupon is needed, but make sure to mention this offer when ordering.

A few of you have experienced problems with Sonic deals like this.  I don’t know what to tell you other than it’s legit and they should honor it.  I received an email directly form Sonic and it doesn’t say you need a coupon or to show the email.  PLUS, I just found it on their Facebook page.  You can always pull it up, if needed.

And … their Facebook comments say there isn’t any limit.  Go crazy!  :)

Reminder ~ Free Drive In Movie Night at West Wind on Thursday, 8/27


 West Wind Drive-In is having a free movie night on Thursday, August 27th starting at 6:00 pm.
The movies start at 8:00 pm.

They will be showing Avengers: Age of Ultron, Furious 7, Home and Pitche Perfect 2.

There is only one location in Arizona.  It’s in Glendale at 5650 N. 55th Ave, which is just South or Bethany Home Road.

The movies are shown in all digital projection, so the quality should be great!

They’ll also have live music, games and $1 nachos!

You can register for their e-mail club and you’ll get coupons too!

You can read about it on their Facebook page.

Susan left a comment and had this to say about it last year:

We have gone to the Drive In two times now on their free nights. It is so much fun! Westwind does a great job. They have bounce houses, giant slides, etc…all for free before the movie. The first time we went we assumed they were charging for all the bouncy houses, but were pleasantly surprised that it was free. It is organized and well run too. We stop and get a $5 pizza at little Ceasars, get there early for the kids to go play, fold down our back seat in the mini-van and snuggle up and eat pizza and watch a movie. Very fun! Kids love it too since it’s a “school night”. Long lines at the snack bar and bathrooms, though. Oh yeah, they had face painting too but we skipped it cuz it was long line as well.

This is a great deal! Try it out if you have never been there. Your kids will love it. And if you don’t have kids, it is a fun cheap date!

Thanks, Susan for the info!
