Updated January 16, 2012 This is one of those posts that isn’t frugal Or local, but I always have readers who ask about it……
Great Wolf Lodge is having another 48hr sale beginning Friday (Please note this is based on an ad I saw during The Bachelor-I have no special insider scoop). Now, in the past, I’ve signed up for their email list and gotten the code a day earlier, when it has worked just fine. Sooo…I’m anticipating this sale will really start Thursday. I’ll keep you posted! My best advice at the moment is to sign up for their emails.
They usually do these a couple times a year, and unless you get in on a group rate, it’s typically your best deal. Here’s where the, “Gulp,” factor starts-the best price is 159.99-and yes, that’s the sale price. I Do think it’s the best rate you’re generally going to get. They typically offer similar rates for two night stays at other times of the year, and as I mentioned, you may be able to get a better deal if you round up a group (call and ask for information about group/team/corporate sales). A few months ago, they also ran a Groupon, that was a Great deal, but it was for the suites, so while it was probably a better value, it was still more money.
One Note: Last time, Reader J.C. let me know over at the Facebook page, that she still got a better rate using the military discount. If you’re eligible for that, be sure to try code HEROES to compare!
You do get access to the water park with your room rate, and I will say that my kids Love this place. We went for the first time last year as part of a blogger get together, and then we went again in the spring for Henry’s birthday. I was super glad my oldest got brave enough for the slides-because, honestly, if your kids are only going to do the kiddie pool, it’s really not worth it imho. You can read more about my take on Great Wolf Lodge. I’ve got some more money saving tips and some good links in that post, too. If you’re headed there, it’s worth a read. Howls!
