They even have an Under $10 in Dallas / Fort Worth section with LOTS of great deals that'll save you at least 50% off most tickets.

Here are a few I saw:


Cheap Admission to Family-Friendly Venues from Pogo Pass

I’ve told you before that Pogo Pass is my FAVORITE way to get the best deal on family-based entertainment especially when you use my promo code COUPONCRAZY to get 60% off, making the pass only $39.98. That means with 29 visits to the best venues included on the Dallas/Ft. Worth Pogo Pass (like the Ft. Worth Zoo, Urban Air, Mountasia, Hawaiian Falls, Dallas Children’s Aquarium, Pump it Up, Putt-Putt and MORE) you’re basically paying just $1.38 per visit. That’s CRAZY!!!

The Pogo Pass is also available for other cities. If you’re traveling to Austin or San Antonio for Spring Break, be sure to check out the venues included for those areas.

The Coupon Crazy Mommy, Natalie Reid, began couponing as a young girl (back before it was “cool” to be frugal). Decades later, she’s still passionate about sharing deals and gets weak in the knees when she stumbles upon an awesome find.

She’s been speaking to groups and teaching couponing classes around the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex for over 10 years and is a regular contributor on WFAA’s “Good Morning Texas. In September 2012, she launched and took her numerous years of bargain-hunting experience online, with the desire to help more families save money and reach their financial goals.

Natalie is a former on-air radio personality, marketing director and event planner. But now, with three young boys at home, the biggest events she plans are stress-free grocery trips and fabulous birthday parties.
