Surely, you’ve checked out the KFDC Deals page by now, where I’ve compiled a list of websites that offer discounts on all kinds of local activities and adventures.
Among them is my go-to link for deals on a variety of entertainment: Goldstar. If I’m planning to buy tickets to a performance, sporting event, special tour, or even one of the few museums in DC that requires an admission fee, I always check Goldstar to see if there’s a deal on it first. And, often, I just browse the site to see what’s happening around town that I might be interested doing or seeing or covering here on the blog.
Currently they have discounts on tickets to Nats games, the International Spy Museum, the Crime & Punishment Museum, Boomerang Pirate Ship cruises on the Potomac, Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat at Adventure Theatre, and ComedySportz 4 Kidz. And those are just some of the family-friendly offers. If you’re looking for something to do sans kids, there are even more fantastic savings to be had.
There are service fees with every purchase, but they are listed up front along with the number of tickets and days remaining to get the deal. (And even with the fees, it’s still always less than the regular price.) And sometimes, tickets are even “comp” or free!
Giveaway: To entice you to check out Goldstar, they are giving one lucky KFDC reader a $50 credit to use toward any purchases. To enter, you must click here and sign up to be a Goldstar member. After you’ve done that, come back and leave a comment letting me know you did. That’s it — easy peasy.
