Try these money-saving tips the next time you hit the lanes.

  • Register your child on and they can bowl two FREE games at participating locations every day throughout 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.

    We did the kids bowl free this year for the first time and it was fantastic. My boys tracked their scores over the summer and watched themselves improve tremendously. Highly recommend it.

      Look at the end of registration page, right below the phone number. It say you can claim at bowling alley if you donโ€™t receive coupon by email. I just found it myself. Happy bowling & have a blessed day too! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    My email didnโ€™t come either, but when I looked at registration page it, it states if email isnโ€™t received to claim coupon at bowling alley. (I found info at the end of registration after phone number)
