It’s hard to believe that my kids will be back in school in less than a week. The countdown is on and we’ve been busy buying new school clothes, getting haircuts and organizing school supplies. We’ve also been thinking about what to do as one last hurrah, so I was excited when I heard from Discover and Six Flags. One final trip to an amusement park would be a great way to cap off the summer, and Six Flags America is only an hour from my house.
All the rides, water attractions and shows at amusement parks are great on their own, but it’s also super-easy to find deep discounts on admission in August and September. Do a Google search for “Six Flags” and “promo code” for current discounts, and if you can, buy your tickets online at least three days in advance for extra savings. Here’s a great post too called 10 Ways to Get a Six Flags Ticket Discount.
If you have a Discover card, use your card to pay to receive an extra 5% discount on park admission, as well as on in-park purchases, including food and souvenirs. You’ll also receive expedited entrance into Six Flags during the first two hours of operation each day. As an added incentive, through September you’ll receive a 5% Cashback Bonus on all gas, theme park and movies you pay for with your Discover card (up to $1,500 in purchases).
So, who’s up for going to Six Flags to mark the end of summer? I’ve got a family four-pack of Six Flags tickets to give away to one lucky winner. Just leave me a comment by Friday, August 24 at 8 p.m. ET and let me know your favorite thing to do at amusement parks. I can’t wait to hear from you.
