Today Only: Save On Universal Studios Hollywood Tickets

You Save $68 on Universal Studios Hollywood Tickets

The Daily Getaways website will have a new deal every weekday at 1:00 pm Eastern Time from May 19, 2014, until June 20, 2014.

However, you have to be quick to get in on these deals because they sell out within minutes!

And you’ll save an additional 10% if you use your American Express card.  These includes cards like the American Express Platinum personal or business card, the Starwood hotel personal or business card, or the Delta personal or business card.

Note:  American Express gift cards aren’t eligible for the 10% discount, but some folks have reported Bluebird cards are eligible.

Universal Studios Hollywood Tickets

You can buy 1 pack of 4 discounted 2-day Universal Studios Hollywood tickets for $604 (~$544 With AMEX Card) for at least a $68 savings off the retail price of $672. 

The new price is $336 (~$302 with AMEX card).

You Can Spend 2 Days at Universal Studios Hollywood and Save $68!  The Original Price Made This a BAD Deal but the New Price Makes It Better!

Your 2nd visit must be within 7 days of your 1st visit.  And tickets expire on May 15, 2015.

Although you can save $68 off the retail price, this is NOT a good deal because:

With the new lower price of ~$302 for four 2-day admission tickets with your American Express card, you can see how this is a better deal now compared to the regular pricing:

This makes all of the old math on this deal obsolete!

For example, if you only want a 2-day pass for 4 people, you’d save $168 buying directly from Universal Studios ($604 Daily Getaway cost – $436 direct from Universal Studios).

If you use your American Express card, you’ll save an extra 10%.  So you would save ~$108 buying directly from Universal Studios ($604 Daily Getaway cost – $436 direct from Universal Studios – ~$60 discount for using an American Express card that gets a 10% discount).

So I wouldn’t waste time waiting to buy four 2-day tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood from the Daily Getaways because you can get a better deal buying from Universal Studios.

Daily Getaways estimates the value of the four 2-day passes to Universal Studio Hollywood to be worth $372.  So taking part in this deal with your American Express card for ~$302 would save you ~$70.

Bottom Line

You can buy discounted Universal Studios Hollywood tickets through Daily Getaways at 1:00 pm EST.

You can buy four 2-day tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood for $604 (~$544 With AMEX Card).  Although, you’re saving $68 off the retail price, you’ll pay more than you should.

You can buy discounted 2-day tickets Universal Studios Hollywood from Universal Studios for less.

Just because something’s discounted, doesn’t mean it’s a good deal.

With the new lowered price, this is a pretty good deal if you want 4 tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood and you can get there by May 15, 2015.

  1. Amex is selling 4 2-day packs for $303 after Amex discount not $544. The conclusion changes completely.

  2. Not a good deal for those with flexible dates, since they are pushing their buy one-get 2014 free deals. $92 a ticket, but with some serious blackout dates in effect during July and August. This also comes with $12 off general admission for up to 6 guests, 10% off food in the park, and 15% off merchandise.

  3. Costco sells Universal Annual pass for $75
