I typically leave the money-saving news to Rana Cash over at the Atlanta Bargain Hunter blog, but this one involves enough fun stuff around Atlanta that I want to make sure you see it.
Here’s the deal: during the month of September, you can use your membership at any of nine different institutions to get discounts at all the others.
Show your membership card to Atlanta Ballet, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta History Center/Margaret Mitchell House, Fernbank Museum of Natural History, Georgia Aquarium, High Museum of Art, Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta, Michael C. Carlos Museum or Zoo Atlanta at any of the others. With that, you’ll get a free class or discounts on admission, cafe food, book shop purchases or memberships at other attractions.
Not a member? The deals are still good as soon as you join. Even without the discounts, memberships can be a good deal, if you are out and about often enough or like to have a first glimpse at what’s new.
Want the details? Here’s a PDF that shows what kind of discounts you’ll get: Swaptember Membership Offers (PDF)
And seriously, if you’re always looking for deals on fun things to do, keep an eye on Rana’s blog. I mention free items in the daily to do list, but she’s constantly mining coupons and contests. She’s got links, too, to other deal-hawks around town.
