Pogo Pass Sale Coming ~ Monday, Dec. 18 – Dec. 24

Sale starts Monday, December 18.

I just got word that Pogo Pass is going to have another $5 off sale (same as Black Friday), beginning on Monday, December 18.  It will go through Christmas Eve.

I’ll remind you on Monday, but I just don’t want anyone to buy them now and then kick themselves later.  :)

When you use this affiliate link or code BARGAIN, the discount will be automatic.  It makes Arizona passes $44.98.  If you happen to need one for another region (Vegas, & 3 areas in Texas), they will be $34.98.

Note:  You can renew up to 6 months early, and also save $5.  Just log into your account and the savings will be automatic, during the sale dates.  You can begin using new venues immediately.  They will not expire until one year from your previous expiration date.  The “old” venues will expire when your expiration date comes and you’ll be left with the “new” ones for another year.

For those not familiar with Pogo Passes, it one pass for one price, good for a full year.  You get to visit some places more than once.  Each person needs one (suggested for everyone over two).  I love that you don’t need to commit to one membership, and end up getting to visit a bunch of new places.

Free Lego Mini Build Each Month ~ Registration Details

I haven’t posted about the free Lego Store Mini Build in ages.  I used to take my kids there, but stopped when the line got out of control and it wasn’t worth it to get there so early.  In the meantime, I blinked and they’re all in high school now.  I hadn’t checked into it, until recently.

Good news!  I learned they have online registration here.  The employee told me the slots can fill up quickly, but at least you know if you have a spot before you get there and you don’t stand in line forever!

Registration opens on the 15th of the month, prior to the build at 9am EST (currently, that’s 7am in Arizona).

To be fully ready, you also have to be a registered VIP member, with a current email attached to your account.  It’s free.  Go here to do that, at least two days prior to the registration date.

Check your location’s calendar or give them a call, for dates & project information.  Find your store here.

It’s always fun to come home with a freebie the kids are excited about.  Enjoy!

FREE Night at Winter Wonderfest on Friday (Most Everything!)

Winter Wonderfest got some bad press reviews and they’re trying to make things better by doing a FREE grand-reopening this weekend.

Hopefully, they improved the experience and it will be a fun night.  If not … at least it was free and you didn’t drop big cash on it.   On normal nights, they charge for admission, parking, and individual fees for attractions.  All of those will be free!

I’m not sure how crowded it will be.  I hope there’s room for everyone to get in.  (On their Facebook page they said, “We plan on accommodating all attendees up to maximum occupancy allowed.”)

Full information here, but I’ll copy most below:

Friday, December 1 from 5-9pm
Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park
20000 S Maricopa Rd, Chandler, AZ 85226

Free gate Admission

Free rides on the Carousel, Ferris wheel, Bouncy Houses, Inflatable obstacles

Free Trampoline, Rock Crawl, barrel spin

Free to Visit with Santa, Visit with Ice Princess, New Sleigh Ride

Free access to the new “Snow Center”

Free Commemorative Selfie Photo locations (2-4) Cutouts

Free Corn hole & other Game Centers for family to hang out

Free Fire Pit Use

Free Zip Line

While admission and many rides are free this day, our Guests & families should be prepared to pay for the following optional items & goodies while on site:

$ Varies – Professional Commemorative Photo with Santa ($10-$50 Packages)

$ Varies – Fair and Holiday Food, Beverage, Cookies, Deserts, Hot Chocolate

$ Varies – Craft, Clothing and gift booths

$10.00 – S’more’s Kit

LAST DAY to Save on Pogo Passes ~ Extra $5 off (renewals, too!)

Today (11/27) is the LAST DAY to save $5 extra on your Pogo Passes If you’re giving them as a gift or too busy to start your fun now, purchase now as a gift card and redeem when you’re ready to start having fun!

You will get the normal 60% off + an additional $5 off on new passes or renewals! (November 23-27 only)  That makes the Phoenix/Tucson pass only $44.98.  If you are visiting or have friends in Texas or Vegas, those passes will be only $34.98.

You have to use this link or code BARGAIN and the price will be automatically correct.

For renewals, log into your account and manually renew.  If you let them auto-renew, you won’t get the discount.  You can renew up to 6 months early, if you want.  New visits will be available to use, immediately, but won’t expire until a year from your original expiration date.  So, you won’t be losing any time on your old, but can choose to visit the new early.

For those not familiar with Pogo Pass, it’s a pass that gets you into multiple venues (some more than once), for a full year.  The value is amazing and hard to beat!  Venues are subject to change, but here’s what’s on there now . . . .

Each person needs one, though I wouldn’t suggest getting one for kids 2 or under.  Even age 3, may be questionable.  Check out what venues you’d visit with them and see if paying individual admissions would be better.  If you visit all venues, Pogo is the way to go!  If not, you may come close, paying the cheaper toddler pricing at each venue you choose.
