Did you know there was a Lego Land Shoppers's Pass? It's a clever marketing idea for LegoLand and it'll save you some money! You don't even need a membership pass. Go to the Guest Services desk to request a Shopper's Pass.
You'll be asked to leave a credit card imprint for the price of the ticket in exchange for an hour of shopping at any of their stores inside the park.
At the end of the hour, return to get your imprint . If you purchased at least $20 in retail items, your parking fee is also reimbursed! Besides all of the regular Lego stores, there is also a clearance items tent where you can get some great deals on Christmas gifts or upcoming birthday party presents. :)
Here's an easy way to earn free stuff on-line. By clicking on e-mails I've earned all kinds of free gift certificates to Target, Body Works, Old Navy, Blockbuster, etc. You can join for free and start clicking your way to free stuff! I've been doing this for a few years now and can guarantee that this company is for real....for all you skeptics out there...
When you sign up, enter my User Name (SISTERTHRIFTY) in the box labeled REFERRED BY A FRIEND. (That way I'll get Points for referring you.) Here's a link where you can learn more, and join for free:
As Christmas quickly approaches I'd love to have you share your great steals and deals with me so I can spread the word with everyone else! Thanks!
Have a good one!
