The Good Life For Less: Bowling Without Coupons

By Alison Lorge, WCCO

I recently went bowling (without a coupon– gasp!) and I was surprised to find that two games on one lane for four people on a Saturday afternoon added up to $60, including shoes.

That price was high to me, especially since it fell under the discount hours at the bowling alley (which shall remain nameless). A spontaneous bowling trip can add up, but it was tons of fun nonetheless and sometimes you just don’t have a coupon for spur of the moment plans.

It may have been a lot more then I remember just a few years ago, so that’s why I want to set you up to save money on your next bowling trip.

Check out this link to Lumber Liquidators website where they are giving away two free games of bowling at any participating AMF bowling centers. All you have to do is answers a question (which you can figure out pretty easily by Googling). Then they’ll send you a coupon within a few weeks (see terms and conditions here.)

Let’s see you ‘strike’ it rich with all the ‘spare’ cash you’ll have lying around after using these coupons!

If you know of any other deals, share them with other ‘Good Lifers’ in the comment section. You can also text WCCODEALS to 84816 for a ‘deals of the week’ reminder.

    Go to, and sign up for their email ads. They are nearly always sending out coupons for $1.99 games (or less), or an hour of free bowling, or recently they sent one where students can get one game free every day of June through August. (That’s right–if they have their own shoes, students can stop by and play a game completely free every single day all summer long.)

    Drkulas in Inver Grove Heights has dollar bowling on Sundays before noon.
