Our fifth giveaway is four tickets to Disney Live! Mickey’s Musical Festival.  The winner will receive 4 tickets to see the Disney show on opening day which is Saturday, September 27th at noon at the US Airways Center in Phoenix.

We’ve really enjoyed the Disney shows that we’ve attended.  They are very professionally done and keep you entertained.  Your kids (and you!) will have a great time!  They have a new show coming to Phoenix.  Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival will play at the US Airways Center September 27th and 28th, 2014.

As always, I have a discount for you:

  • $4 off with code  MOM4

o   Valid on ALL shows
o   Not valid on Front Row or VIP seats
o   No double discounts

See the full list of 10 giveaways here.


Enter this giveaway!   Leave a separate comment for any number(s) listed below, no more than three total, separate entries.  (“I don’t follow” or “I don’t have” answers will be removed and won’t count as an entry.)  I use a program that automatically chooses the winner, so if you combine answers into one comment, it’s viewed as only one entry and won’t increase your chance of winning.  LEAVE SEPARATE COMMENTS!

1)  What Disney character are you most like?
Hmmm . . . I’ll go with Ariel since I have red hair and a mild streak of rebellion — or so my husband says, but does not following recipes really count?  :)
2)  Follow Bargain Believer on Facebook, TwitterRSS feed, or subscribe to Bargain Believer emails (or say that you already do.)
      (Make sure you click on the confirmation email that you’ll receive or you’re not subscribed to emails.)

The giveaway will end on Wednesday, August 27th, at 8pm AZ time.  I will email the winner and they will have 48 hours to respond.  If I don’t hear back from the winner by then, I will have to choose another one.

West Wind Drive-In ~ Free Movie Night, Thursday, 8/28


West Wind Drive-In is having a free movie night on Thursday, August 28th starting at 6:00 pm.
The movies start at 8:00 pm.

They will be showing Blended, How To Train Your Dragon 2, Captain America, Think Like a Man and Maleficent.

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!

We’ll send out a reminder as it gets closer.

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!

Pogo Pass ~ NEW Venue (i.d.e.a. Museum) & Bonus Rattler’s Game on Sunday


I wanted to let Pogo Pass holders know two things . . . .


#1  — There’s a NEW VENUE!  You can go to the i.d.e.a. Museum (in Mesa) twice.  They will start accepting Pogo Passes on Saturday.  (If you missed it — the Museum of Natural History is being replaced by this.  You can no longer to there.)


#2 –  There’s a bonus Rattlers game that was just released.  It’s a bonus game, which means it doesn’t count toward the three you get with the pass!  The game is on Sunday, August 10th at 5pm.  They are playing the San Jose Sabercats.  If you already have a Pogo pass, go here to register for the game.


If you don’t have a Pogo Pass . . . they’re such a super value!
