A POGO pass is a one-stop pass to fun, and one of the best investments for a family! Here are 7 reasons we invested in the POGO pass and why you should, too!
Have you invested in the POGO pass?
Chances are, if you are here in the Phoenix area, you have either picked one up, or heard of them. A POGO pass is an entertainment pass that gives the purchaser free admission to over 20 venues over the course of one year.
We have partnered with POGO for several years – and back when we started, I thought it was a great opportunity for families. But as our family expanded over time .. I have grown to love it even more.
Many people have mentioned a POGO pass as being a pricey investment. And while I can see that point of view, as a family of seven our entire perspective on the POGO pass might be a little different than others.
Being invested in the POGO pass is one of the wisest choices you can make if you have children.
We love having a large family – in fact, we love having 5 kids. With each child comes joy, and a happiness I can’t really put my finger on. In fact, I’d love to go beyond 5, but I’m not sure that will be felt both ways! :)
But some things are entirely frustrating ~ because Groupon Deals, and LivingSocial offers for families are always targeted as offers for a family of four.
Science Membership? Family of four.
Hotel Resort Offer? Family of four.
Giveaways for Tickets? Family of four.
Rarely if ever are there offers for a family of six. And never are there offers for a family of seven or more.
Even taking the kids out of state to visit family is a ridiculous expense. We now drive everywhere, but we require two hotel rooms when we do make a stop overnight. With hotels running as much as they do, it’s just not cost effective.
Seven Reasons We Invested in the POGO Pass
That’s why we love the POGO pass. .. as a family of seven, it’s a yearly investment for us. Whether you have a big family or a small family they are a fun way to enjoy time with each other.
Right now, the POGO pass is offering passes for just $39.98 with promo code CENTSABLE. Not only can you score FREE Admission to over 20 venues for one year (12 months!), some of those venues have multiple visits.
While it’s initially an investment for most of us, there are so many advantages to having a POGO pass ~ we rounded up seven of our favorite reasons to pick one up.
1. Passes are valid for a full 12 month period
Are you busy and have a committed job? No worries, because you have a full year to use the POGO pass at any of the 20+ venues.
Certainly you can find an afternoon to take the kids to Golfland Sunsplash in the summer… or a weekday to take the kids to the IDEA Museum. Or… head over & visit the Phoenix Zoo with the kids on a beautiful weekend!
2. The cost savings is huge
This was one of the biggest reasons we got a POGO pass for our family of seven… it’s so difficult to do fun things with the family. Even more so when you are on a limited budget.
You can easily throw down $180 for a family of six to visit the Phoenix Zoo. But pick up a POGO pass for slightly more, and not only can you visit the zoo once, but twice – AND 20 other establishments.
Have lots of kids like we do? Then it’s really just a no-brainer.
3. There is something for everyone
Seriously – there is. From sports games to the zoo, the waterpark to paintball, rock climbing and more.
4. Time with your kids
I’m a hue proponent of kids being outside and active – which is why we got ours, too! The POGO Pass keeps them engaged – off screens, and doing something with their body. Even more importantly it gives them time with you.
From baseball games to a trip to the waterpark, it’s a great way to do something fun no matter what time of the year.
5. Incentive to do date night
Think you have to have kids to enjoy a POGO pass? You don’t! The POGO pass is great for couples too! It gives you a ton of activities to do together over a 12 month period. Supplement your activity with a deal on LivingSocial or Groupon for a breakfast, or light lunch and it’s a really an inexpensive way to spend time together all year!
Enjoy Rock Climbing, Laser Tag, or even a date to the Phoenix Zoo.
6. Gives you something to do on scheduled breaks
Summer break, spring break, and even winter break – occupy those days with a POGO pass… and keep the kids entertained. Of course, you can’t go somewhere every single day, but break up the monotony during the week by taking them to different places.
7. More than one admission to popular venues
One of the BEST reasons to pick up a POGO pass is that it will give you the opportunity to visit some of the most popular venues more than once. From bowling to the trampoline park, baseball games to the museum, or even the zoo or waterpark, there is something for everyone, no matter what time of the year.
Even better, the POGO pass is available in several different metropolitan areas – not just here in Phoenix/Tucson:
