Starbucks: 50% off Frappuccinos April 28th – May 2nd (3-6 p.m.)

frappuccino

From April 28th – May 2nd, Starbucks will be offering a “Happy Hour” with 50% off Frappuccinos between the hours of 3-6 p.m.! They’re also introducing a new Birthday Cake Frappuccino flavor during this time period.

Please note that this year the promotion is only open to Starbucks Rewards members who pay with their registered Starbucks Card or App – sign up here if you’re not already a Rewards member (it’s free to join). Don’t forget that Green members get Gold status by making just one purchase by May 2nd, and current Gold members get an extra year by doing the same!

Just a note: They’re advertising this as “early access” for Rewards members, which makes me think that they will open it up to everyone after May 2nd. We’ll keep tabs on that and let you know, so stay tuned!

Our Visit to Mima Mounds in Olympia

Mima Mounds in Olympia, WashingtonLast weekend, I told my husband that I was in a mood to get out of the house and go for a drive! He suggested we visit the Mima Mounds.

HUH? I asked. I’d never heard of this.

My husband seems to know about all these cool, random things and Mima Mounds happened to be one of them. Sure, why not. Let’s go!

Getting to Mima Mounds in Olympia

Mima Mounds is an easy drive off I-5, just outside of Olympia. (You can see this website for more specific directions.) You will need a Discover Pass to park here, so heads up!

Sign at Mima Mounds

What is this place, exactly? Well, it’s a Natural Area Preserve known for its unusual land features – mounds. (Surprise!)

Mima Mounds Natural Area Preserve

This picture doesn’t do it justice, but the land basically rolls up and down, and up and down, like little hills. Read More…

*LAST DAY* Great Wolf Lodge on Groupon – as low as $129/night for a 6-person suite + Extra 10% Off!

greatwolflodgegroupon

Just a heads up – today (Wednesday, April 27th) is the last day to get in on this deal! Use the coupon code TRAVEL to take an extra 10% off these prices, too!

Groupon is running another offer on Great Wolf Lodge! This one has options for everyone, whether you have a small family or you want to stay in a larger, themed suite. Here are the starting rate breakdowns (Grand Mound, WA location):

Options include:

  • $129+/night for a Family Suite (2 queen beds and a sofa sleeper with daily water park wristbands for 6 – valid Sunday-Thursday)
  • $199+/night for a Wolf Den or KidKamp Suite w/$50 dining credit per day (1 queen bed, sofa sleeper, and bunk beds with daily water park wristbands for 6 – valid Sunday-Friday)
  • $249+/night for a KidCabin Suite w/$50 dining credit per day (1 queen bed, day bed, sofa sleeper, and bunk beds with daily water park wristbands for 7 – valid Sunday-Friday)
  • $299+/night for a Grand Bear Suite w/$50 dining credit per day (1 king bed, 2 queen beds, and a sofa sleeper with daily water park wristbands for 8 – valid Sunday-Friday)

Dates are available to book in May and June. Note that you’re allowed to enter the water park at 1 p.m. on the day you check in and stay until close on the day you check out. You can book at these prices for a limited time.

Want to stay at a different Great Wolf Lodge location? Check out these deals through Groupon:

Other fine print:

Reservations: Dates cannot be changed once booked; valid only for night(s) purchased. Cancellation policy: 4-day cancellation notice required prior to check-in or reservation is non-refundable; reservations made within cancellation window are non-refundable. Additional fees: $19.99 daily resort fee plus tax added at purchase. Rates may vary by date and are subject to availability.

Is This a Good Deal?

I looked back at the Groupon deal we posted back in February and these prices either meet or beat those prices. Plus, you’ll be getting a $50 dining credit with most of these deals, whereas before it was a $10 gift shop credit.

For those of you on Great Wolf Lodge’s email list, there was a deal earlier this month where you could get Family Suites for as low as $99.99/night, but I’m not sure how limited the selection of available dates was. Plus, I didn’t see any mention of deals on the larger suites in that email. {But if you did get a better deal than what’s posted here, awesome! :)}

Don’t forget that once you’re there, there are plenty of opportunities to save, as well! Check out my post on Saving Money on Your Great Wolf Lodge Stay for my personal tips and tricks.
