After three successful years, Discover Financial Services has announced a multi-year extension to its corporate sponsorship with Six Flags Entertainment Corporation. As the official credit card of all U.S.-based Six Flags theme parks, Discover card holders will continue to receive special perks when using their Discover cards at the park, such as early admittance, in-park discounts, and access to exclusive events. Below are various ways that me and my family have benefited from using the Discover card at Six Flags.
As a fun way to promote Discover’s partnership with Six Flags, they sent one very lucky family (mine!) on a roller coaster trip of a lifetime. We drove across the country, stopping at five different Six Flags parks along the way, showcasing how you can both save money and receive special benefits by using your Discover card at Six Flags. This was me and my sons kicking off the tour right here at Six Flags Magic Mountain:
When you arrive at the park in the morning, don’t wait in the massive line at the main gate with everyone else. Look for the special Discover Cardmember Entrance, like the one below at Six Flags Over Georgia, located off to the side of the main entrance. Just flash your Discover card and you and your party will get priority access to the park:
Once you’re in the park, use your Discover card and save an instant 5% off any purchase. This is me paying for some on-ride photos from Goliath:
You never know when you might come across a special Discover card perk. When we were at Six Flags Great Adventure, El Toro was the Discover Ride of the Day. All you had to do was flash your Discover card and you went straight to the front of the line. Pretty cool, right? This is my wife and I, along with our pals Speedy Gonzales and Yosemite Sam, giving away some Discover gift cards to unsuspecting Discover card holders who just happened to be in the right place at the right time:
All you need to take advantage of these benefits at your local Six Flags park is a Discover card. I’ll never go the park without mine, and you shouldn’t either. I’m proud to have Discover as an advertiser on this site. If you don’t have a Discover card, you should get one. Applying only takes a couple of minutes and all you have to do is click on one of the Discover ads listed on the right side of this page. If I have 10 people apply, I get a free car! No, actually I don’t, but it does help me defray some of the expenses in maintaining this site. I really do enjoy running this site for you, but it can get expensive. I’m not a big fan of ads, but they help pay the bills.
