Can’t make it out to celebrate National Bowling Day this weekend?
Try these money-saving tips the next time you hit the lanes.
- Register your child on KidsBowlFree.com and they can bowl two FREE games at participating locations every daythroughout the summer!
- Go with a group. Although it varies by center, sharing a lane is generally more economical than bowling solo.
- Ask about a season pass or membership. Some centers have loyalty programs that offer discounts or give opportunities to earn free games. It doesn’t hurt to ask!
- Join a league. If you like the competitive aspect of bowling, consider joining a league. Although you’ll have to pay dues upfront, games and practice times are often part of the package. Plus, you’ll get a cool bowling shirt!
- Check your local thrift shop for gently used bowling shoes. Even when you get to bowl a free game or two, you’ll usually have to pay for the cost of renting shoes. If you bowl often, owning your own pair will save you lots of money in the long run!
- Avoid the snack bar. Bowling alley snacks can be pricey, so eat before you go and bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated. Some centers won’t mind if you pack a snack for the kids, but do ask in advance and bring something that won’t leave a mess.
