Take me out to the ballgame, and let me use my coupon (anytime)

May 23, 2008

I recently noticed a tiny ad for the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission‘s online coupons, and after exploring the site a little, I found a treasure trove.  Ted Drewes, the Magic House, the Science Center, the Zoo, the Butterfly House and more classic summertime institutions offer either 2-for-1 admission or discounts on tickets and merchandise.  That particular document is a .pdf, so you can print out only the page(s) you need.  A few of the savings, like the $10 off on Cardinals tickets in June and $5 off in July, are redeemable online.

And speaking of the Cardinals, as I was buying tickets at the window last week, the cashier reminded me that the very topmost seats in the stadium have children’s pricing, as do the standing-room-only tickets.  It’s a good deal — roughly a third the price of an adult ticket — and for kids who don’t care how close they are to the field, it’s definitely the way to go.  To see where they’re at, visit the team’s homepage and magnify the seating chart.

Another money-saving deal of which I was only peripherally aware is the St. Louis Family Attractions card.  It’s available at Schnucks, Dierbergs and Shop N’ Save, but there’s also an online version that includes savings on hotels, Amtrak tickets, restaurants, museums, and more.  You’ll definitely find at least a couple of places to use it, especially if your summer travel plans are shrinking due to the cost of gas and airline tickets.
