Snagging Super Savings on Summer Fun Is So Simple to Do

Looking for fun ways to spend your Summer, but you don't want to spend alot of money?  You have come to the right place!  Saving money doesn't mean you have to eliminate all your fun activities and suffer through a boring Summer!  

There are many entertaining, yet low cost activities that you can take advantage of here in Charlotte!

Our family loves the  Charlotte Citipass  Discount Book for coupon discounts,  including many 2 for 1 deals at restaurants! There are loads of other great discounts in the book, including a free loaf of bread at Great Harvest Bread Company, reductions at Home Depot, discounts at museums, gardens and golfing and much more! 

Check out their website, Charlotte Citipass where they are offering reduced prices on their remaining 2009 books right now!  That's amazing, considering the regular price is a super deal at $25 for all those discounts!

Also, check out for great deals at local restaurants, reduced ticket prices for movie theaters, discounts for sporting events, grocery stores, theme parks and more!!

After you have eaten dinner, you can pick up your free movie at the RedBox located at certain Harris Teeter and Walgreen stores.  Regular price for Redbox rentals are only $ 1 each!  Be sure to add the Firefox add-on that shows you coupons for websites and you will see there are codes you can use on the RedBox site for a FREE movie! 

On the  Redbox website you locate particular movies at various locations near your home and can even reserve it, so you know it's there when you go to pick it up!  How convenient is that?

Check out this great website I came across called Charlotte on the Cheap  for super ideas of fun activities in Charlotte.  As the website says, you don’t have to spend a lot to take advantage of all that Charlotte has to offer, from NASCAR to nightlife to family fun.  There are many great suggestions there! 

Also, be sure to check out the Charlotte Mecklenburg Public library for movies, books and music all for FREE.

Have fun this Summer!
