I don’t normally get out of bed for 10% off, but deals on memberships to Northwest Trek and Point Defiance Zoo are really hard to come by, so I thought this was worth mentioning.
And, if you can swing the investment, a membership is a great deal. A zoo membership pays for itself in three visits or less!
If you’d like to buy both, you’ll want to opt for a, “Combo,” membership for the best deal. We’ve had Trek memberships in the past, but recently we’ve just done the zoo. We love Trek; we just didn’t get out there enough to justify it.
To get a membership for 10% off, visit the zoo membership site, or the Trek membership site and use promo code 965100282 or call 253 404 3635 for the zoo or 360 832 7170 for Trek. You’ll probably have to leave a message if you phone. The code is from the blue ValPak envelope that gets sent out to pretty much everyone, so I’m quite certain it’s not a unique thing. If they claim it is, ask for the ValPak coupon offer. It does exclude prior purchases, so I don’t think you can use it to upgrade an existing membership, but let me know if you find out differently.
If you just can’t afford this deal, Tacoma city residents get free entry to the zoo once a month with proof of residence and picture id (If you live in the city limits and once a month is plenty for you, I’d pass on this offer. Do note that you can’t choose your day; you have to check the calendar for your free day).
Northwest Trek has one weekend a year (past) where kids get in free, and in the past they’ve had annual free days for Eatonville and Pierce County residents. I haven’t seen any announcement on those in a while.
Otherwise, there are usually free admission coupons for the kids with an adult ticket purchase as part of library summer reading programs, and there is typically a small value coupon in the Entertainment Book (I don’t have one right now. If you know, leave a comment)! We’ve also seen a couple offers similar to this one around the holidays, but in general, a deal on memberships is a very rare animal indeed!
