Carowinds frequently distributes coupons through its partners, including grocery stores, fast food chains, hotels and other companies, as of 2015. These deals are advertised on Carolina-area TV and radio. Alternatively, third party discount sites such as DontPayFull.com offer coupon codes for Carowinds admission. The company itself sometimes offers discounts on its website and always offers promotional pricing to specific groups and money-saving season passes.
Carowinds season passes start at approximately $15 per month and include unlimited park access for the spring and summer, discounts on guest admissions, early ride access, discounted food and drinks, and discounts on particular attractions. More expensive memberships include additional perks, such as free parking, unlimited drink refills and complimentary meals. The company offers discounted admission to groups of four or more people, AAA discounts, senior discounts to those age 62 and up, junior discounts based on height rather than age, and military discounts. A discount is also available for booking tickets online
The park's sponsors, such as Coca-Cola, frequently include Carowinds discounts inside specially marked packages of their products during the park's operating season. Charlotte-area grocery stores are a good place to check for these promotions. Carowinds also offers special corporate pricing for company tickets that may be distributed throughout the season.
Coupon codes from third-party discount sites such as DontPayFull.com may expire without warning, so prospective customers should confirm current pricing on Carowinds.com before accepting any promotion at face value.
