Are you planning a trip to San Antonio or thinking about it? I am! Yes, we are actually planning a trip for this weekend. Perfect timing for a SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience review, right? I am in love with the SAVE website.
First, it has a nifty map that places ALL the deals currently running on the map making it so much easier to plan. For example I know our biggest part of this trip is taking Alice to Seaworld. On the map I can clearly see where Seaworld is and then I just checked out all deals near by.
Using Seaworld has the basis of our trip I first clicked the Seaworld deals and printed the $10 off coupon that is good for up to 6 people. There was also a coupon for by a day pass at regular price and get unlimited admission for the rest of the year, a 4 pack deal for $190 and a buy 2 tickets to Seaworld’s new water park Aquatica and get a 2nd day free. Now this deal is the same offered on the Seaworld site, BUT having it right here with all the other great deals on the SAVE site is a win! It just makes everything much easier to navigate and plan.
Using the map I then searched hotels deals near by. Closest to Seaworld is the Ramada Inn. The SAVE price is $20 less than the regular room rate and $10 less than the best deal a few other saving sites found. SAVE wins this round! I wanted to check hotels near the Riverwalk and see how those deals work out. I found that, for example, if you chose the Westin Riverwalk the SAVE price was $40 less than the standard rate on the Westin site and $20 than the best deal found on other sites. Or with the Crockett Hotel you save 30% using the SAVE website. Even bigger WINS! There are over 20 different hotels and resort deals to browse through.
Now, there is also Theme Parks, Museums, Adventure, Shopping and Sightseeing to browse through. When I click on Theme Parks there are deals for Schlitterbahn, Seaworld, Splashtown and Fiesta Texas. The Splashtown discount is $7 off admission and for Fiesta Texas the deals are buy one ticket get one free Monday-Friday, everyone pays kid prices, buy an adult ticket and get a child ticket free and a next day free ticket. Great deals!
A few of the great Museum and Adventure deals are $1 off Ripley’s museum, 20% off admission to the San Antonio Childrens Museum, $2 off for adults and $1 off for kid admission to the Natural Bridge Caverns, $2 off admission to the San Antonio Zoo and $2 off an admission ticket to the Enchanted Springs Ranch. And there are many many more deals to check out!!
There are great sightseeing and shopping deals as well. Like, 10% off Alamo Helicopter Tours, FREE children’s admission to the Alamo IMAX theater Riverwalk, FREE tote bag with the purchase of a t-shirt at Del Sol SanAntiono and FREE gift with $15 purchase at the San Antonio Official Visitor Information Center.
So, lets say you stay at the Crockett for 3 nights, go to Seaworld and Fiesta Texas, take an Alamo Helicopter tour, stop off at Splashtown, go to the Ripley museum and the Natural Bridge Caverns, a family of 4 being 2 adults and 2 kiddos would save over $350 using the SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience website!! Of course that depends on which deals you choose as many of the offers have multiple deals to choose from. But, WOW that is a HUGE saving, you could use those saving to shop! Don’t forget the wonderful shopping discounts that can be found on SAVE! SAVE definitely makes taking a summer vacation with your family much more affordable.
