Discounted Tickets to SeaWorld and Busch Gardens

I mentioned the Daily Getaways promotions in yesterday’s post but have otherwise not written about them as I think many of the “deals” are mediocre (and a few are downright rip-offs).

However, tomorrow’s deal, which offers discounted tickets to SeaWorld and Busch Gardens, can provide good value.

SeaWorld offer

Here’s a summary of the deals and how they compare to the prices offered by the theme parks themselves.

SeaWorld tickets for $49 each ($44.10 if paying with an American Express Card)

The deal:

  • One single-day admission ticket for an adult or child to your choice of SeaWorld Orlando, SeaWorld San Diego or SeaWorld San Antonio.
  • Expires May 15, 2015.
  • No blackout dates.
  • Can purchase up to 6 tickets.

Price comparison:

  • SeaWorld Orlando’s website currently shows $80 for an any-day ticket and $65 for a weekday ticket.
  • SeaWorld San Diego’s website shows $64 for an any-day ticket and $50 for a weekday ticket. However, these appear to be limited-time tickets that expire Dec. 25, 2014 and Sep. 30, 2014, respectively. (The Daily Getaways ticket expires May 15, 2015.)
  • SeaWorld San Antonio’s website shows a web offer of $45 for an adult ticket (normally $65) and $35 for a child ticket (normally $55), but those tickets expire August 17, 2014.

Busch Gardens tickets for $45 each ($40.50 if paying with an American Express card)

The deal:

  • One single-day admission ticket for an adult or child to your choice of Busch Gardens Florida or Busch Gardens Virginia.
  • Expires May 15, 2015.
  • No blackout dates.
  • Can purchase up to 6 tickets.

Price comparison:

  • The Virginia location’s website currently shows tickets for $72 (adult) and $62 (child).
  • The Florida location’s website currently shows $80 for an any-day ticket and $65 for a weekday ticket. However, the any-day ticket includes a free second visit:

Busch Gardens Tampa

 

Things to keep in mind

The sale starts tomorrow (May 30th) at 1:00pm ET. There is a fixed quantity available, so if you’re afraid of missing out then I would be at the computer before it starts.

There is a 10% discount for paying with an American Express card, so be sure to pay with one if at all possible.

Many of these parks offer multi-day tickets. If you’re planning to go for more than one day, be sure to do the math to see if these Daily Getaways tickets still make sense for you.

Sales are final so I wouldn’t buy these unless you’re sure you’ll use them.
