We are an independent publisher. Our reporters create honest, accurate, and objective content to help you make decisions. To support our work, we are paid for providing advertising services. Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Next” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. The compensation we receive and other factors, such as your location, may impact what ads and links appear on our site, and how, where, and in what order ads and links appear. While we strive to provide a wide range of offers, our site does not include information about every product or service that may be available to you. We strive to keep our information accurate and up-to-date, but some information may not be current. So, your actual offer terms from an advertiser may be different than the offer terms on this site. And the advertised offers may be subject to additional terms and conditions of the advertiser. All information is presented without any warranty or guarantee to you.

This page may include: credit card ads that we may be paid for (“advertiser listing”); and general information about credit card products (“editorial content”). Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Apply Now” button or “Learn More” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. When you click on that hyperlink or button, you may be directed to the credit card issuer’s website where you can review the terms and conditions for your selected offer. Each advertiser is responsible for the accuracy and availability of its ad offer details, but we attempt to verify those offer details. We have partnerships with advertisers such as Brex, Capital One, Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo and Discover. We also include editorial content to educate consumers about financial products and services. Some of that content may also contain ads, including links to advertisers’ sites, and we may be paid on those ads or links.

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!

1.   SeaWorld

The regular admission for SeaWorld varies depending on location.  The prices (if purchased online) are:

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.

Not Just Dolphins and Whales: SeaWorld Has Great Roller Coasters, Too!
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:

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).

Bring the Kids to Busch Gardens for Some Thrill Rides…Maybe Like This One? (Wait…That Kid Is Me!) 😉

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.

Bottom Line

You can get discounted SeaWorld and Busch Gardens tickets through Daily Getaways, and save as much as $42 on an adult admission ticket.

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!
