A few weeks ago I added a nifty Savvy Savings & Scholarships widget to my right sidebar. I’m pretty selective about what I promote on my blog. I love online group coupon and savings programs, but what makes Savvy Savings & Scholarships unique is that in addition to featuring great discounts on activities and entertainment for families, it also helps local preschools as well as parents who need assistance paying for preschool. We had two girls in full-time daycare not long ago, and trust me, it was not cheap.
Savvy Savings & Scholarships is going national September 13! Now is a great time to sign up to receive their e-mail alerts.
I love to save money on family activities, such as the zoo, area amusement parks, and children’s museums. Each week Savvy Savings & Scholarships offers discounts on fun, family-friendly activities selected by Savvy Source editors.
Here’s a city-by-city preview of the area attractions you can receive discounted admission for through Savvy Savings & Scholarships, once it goes national mid-September:
- Nashville, The Monkey’s Treehouse and Peek-A-Boo Playtown
- Atlanta, Safariland
- Portland, Playground Gym
- Austin, Austin Steam Train
- Boston, Wenham Museum
- New York, Brooklyn Children’s Museum
- Seattle, Imagine Children’s Museum
- Washington, D.C., Chesapeake Children’s Museum
- Tampa, Great Explorations
- Charlotte, Charlotte Museum of History
It’s pretty well established that most people love to save money, but what is the scholarships component? Besides giving parents a much needed break on the cash they need to fork over for a family outing, Savvy Savings & Scholarships donates 5% of each purchase to a preschool of the purchaser’s choice. They also donate 5% of each purchase to a scholarship fund created to help make preschool affordable for parents who need assistance.
