Bay Area Renaissance Festival Discount Tickets (Tampa, FL)
The Bay Area Renaissance Festival is the longest and largest Renaissance Festival in Florida. I used to think they were kinda hokey, but after going a couple years ago and having a fun time, we've been to it ever since. It's a great time for adults and kids.
More information is available at: http://renaissancefest
It's at the MOSI every weekend from Feb 21st - Apr 5th from 10AM-6PM.
I posted a thread a week or so ago with a discount code for printing tickets for this online ($1-$4 off depending on when you get the tickets) using a corporate discount code. But I found a better deal today at PETCO today.
General Admission at the gate is normally $16.95 per person. Even if you get them online using the discount code, you still pay $12.95+$1.25=$14.20. But inside local PETCOs they have $3 off General Admission ticket coupons, as well as a free ticket to bring your pet (normally $10) on March 7 & 8. Since the online ticketing system charges $1.25/ticket transaction fee, this PETCO discount actually saves you $0.25 more per ticket as well as allowing you to bring your dog to the festival for free on March 7 & 8. But, it gets better. According to the website, if you bring 4 cans of food to their food drive during the first three weekends, you get BOGO on adult admission. So, let's say you and three family members go with a pet. With two $3 off coupons, 8 cans of food, and the free pet coupon, you can save a lot:
Person 1 - $16.95 - $3 = $13.95
Person 2 - Free
Person 3 - $16.95 - $3 = $13.95
Person 4 - Free
Dog - Free
Total Cost: $27.90 (for 4 people and a dog)
Total Savings: $16.95x2 + $3x2 + $10 = $49.90!
Not to bad.
Remember, you need one $3 off coupon per paying person, plus the free pet ticket is separate. You may want to call you local PETCOs to see if they have them. But I live in Sarasota, FL which is about 45mins away, and they had them here, so I imagine they have them all over this area.
