From May 19, 2014 to June 20, 2014, a new travel deal will be available every weekday at 1:00 pm EST. But you have to be quick to get in on the deals, because they usually sell out very fast!

Deal for May 30, 2014 – Sea World and Busch Gardens Tickets
Link: Daily Getaways Calendar
- SeaWorld Orlando
- SeaWorld San Diego
- SeaWorld San Antonio
- Busch Gardens Tampa
- Busch Gardens Williamsburg
Southwest flies to many of these destinations so it could be a good way to use your Southwest Companion Pass now that all 4 versions of the Southwest card have a 50,000 point sign-up bonus after completing the minimum spending.
Tickets are good for any day and must be used before May 15, 2015.
The deal goes live today at 1:00 pm EST, so you’ll need to have the site loaded on your browser and ready to click on the deal just prior to that time. There are 1,540 deals available, so they might sell out quickly. You can purchase a maximum of 6 tickets.
Is This a Good Deal?
These are very good prices for SeaWorld and Busch Gardens tickets!
The regular admission for SeaWorld varies depending on location. The prices (if purchased online) are:
- SeaWorld Orlando: Adults $80, Children 3-9 $77
- SeaWorld San Diego: Adults $84, Children 3-9 $78
- SeaWorld San Antonio: Adults $50, Children 3-9 $40
So with the Daily Getaways deal, you’d save up to $35 on an adult admission in Orlando if you used your American Express card ($80 SeaWorld adult ticket cost – $45 Daily Getaways AMEX discounted ticket cost). The only time you won’t save money with the Daily Getaways deal is for a children’s ticket in San Antonio.
Note: SeaWorld.com often runs discount promotions. So check the website 1st before buying tickets throu2gh Daily Giveaways to make sure you’re getting the best deal.
I looked at 3rd party sites, like Undercovertourist.com, and their prices were only slightly less than booking through SeaWorld itself. So the Daily Getaways discount is very good.
2. Busch Gardens
There are 2 Busch Gardens locations in Tampa, Florida and Williamsburg, Virginia. Their online ticket prices are:
- Busch Gardens Tampa: Adults $82, Children 3-9 $77
- Busch Gardens Williamsburg: Adults $72, Children 3-9 $62
You’d save as much as $42 on an adult admission in Tampa if you used your American Express card ($82 Busch Gardens adult ticket cost – $40 Daily Getaways AMEX discounted ticket cost).
But as with SeaWorld, Busch Gardens often runs online promotional deals. So definitely check the website for their new offers before you book this deal!
I would also do a Google search for SeaWorld and Busch Gardens promo codes before buying this deal just to be sure there wasn’t a promotion that could save more money. That said, this deal would be pretty hard to beat.
This is a good deal, but be sure to double check their websites for promotions before you book through Daily Getaways, because their deals change often.
I’d love to take Emily on some roller coasters at Busch Gardens!
