Franklin Institute: $50 for a ONE YEAR FAMILY MEMBERSHIP (50% Off)

I want to direct your attention to a new widget on the right sidebar of my site… this is the Savvy Savings widget.  Every week there is a new family friendly deal available for various cities in the US.  It is similar to Groupon, except you have a few days to scoop it up AND 5% of every sale will be donated to YOUR preschool and another 5% will be donated to a preschool scholarship fund for children in need.  Isn’t that great?

The current deal for Philadelphia is a smokin’ one:  1 Year Family Membership to the Franklin Institute for $50

Here’s what you will get with that membership:

  • UNLIMITED FREE admission for one year for two adults and four children. INCLUDES the science museum, daily demonstrations, Fels Planetarium and Sky Bike
  • 2 FREE tickets to Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt, when you redeem your Membership Coupon by June 4, 2010
  • Discounted tickets to traveling exhibitions and to Tuttleman IMAX Theater and Franklin Theater films
  • FREE admission to over 250 ASTC Science Museums (restrictions apply; please ask for details)
  • 10% discount in Sci-Store and restaurants
  • Special Member rates on Discovery Camp, birthday parties, Camp-In, and workshops

Here is the fine print:

Coupon must be redeemed for membership by August 31, 2010, in person at the Franklin Institute or by calling 215.448.1231. One-year membership begins from the day the coupon is redeemed for membership. A coupon cannot be combined with any other gift certificates, third party certificates, coupons, or promotions, unless otherwise specified by merchant. The coupon is of no cash value. The coupon is transferable. Existing members are not eligible to purchase this discounted membership.


As you can see, there are 50 people needed to make this deal fly.  So far 21 people have purchased one- there are 2 days left and 29 people needed to tip this deal!

    I can’t figure out how to get the coupon for $50 family membership for the Franklin Institute. Buttons send me from mama cheaps to the savvy source, but I don’t know what to tell the museum when I call. Help!

    • Awww- I’m sorry- this was one of those “one day only” type deals back in June. I think it was a 3 day sale and when it ended, that was it.

    The $50 family membership deal specifically says it is redeemable by August 31, 2010. I don’t understand why the coupon doesn’t work. Can someone explain?

    • This deal was a 3 day only sale back in May/June. It is no longer available.
