Residents can save big on a variety of San Diego entertainment deals, such as attractions, dining, museums, and theme parks. You're sure to find something that will save you money when you’re planning on spending some quality time with your family doing fun things around the city. While plastic discount cards are as easy to use as swiping them at a cash register, be careful with discount coupons. Print out any coupons you get online to take them with you, keep an eye on the expiration dates, and check the terms and conditions because some coupons may have certain restrictions.

Finding San Diego Discount Coupons

The gift card aisle at Costco stores offers discounted tickets to renowned San Diego attractions as well as certain well-known restaurant chains, the Cohn Group, for example. On average, savings range between 10% and 30%. Another place to find specials is the San Diego Tourism Authority. They keep an up-to-date list of discounts at various dining and attraction establishments within the county.
