>>>15 Ways to Get a Discount on Six Flags Tickets for 2015 <<<

1. Discount on Coke Cans

The Coke can discounts that are in the stores right now are for $20 off  a one-day general admission ticket. Since the at-the-park 2012 price for a general admission ticket is $61.99; with a Coke can you will only pay $41.99. The listed expiration date is 9/9/2012.

Where to find a Coke can with a Great America (Gurnee) discount: I got my single can in the refrigerator case at Potbellys (about 1 mile west of Six Flags on Grand Ave.) I have also found 12-packs of Coke in Target and Jewel-Osco (both located in the Grand/Hunt shopping center) with the discount, although it’s not printed on the box.

2. Coupon on Post Cereal Boxes

For 2012 Post Cereal has teamed up with Six Flags and has special ticket offers printed on some of its packages. The Post cereal box coupon, which expires 10/7/2012, can be used one of two ways:

  • For FREE admission for kids 9 and younger on weekdays with the purchase of a full-price general admission ticket, OR
  • For $15 off a full-price ticket on Saturday or Sunday.

Where to find Post cereal boxes with Six Flags Great America Coupon: I have found these Post Honey-Comb and Fruity Pebbles boxes both in Target and Jewel-Osco, but they most likely can be found wherever Post cereal is sold in Gurnee stores.
