Enjoy the Best the Region Has to Offer for Up to 50% Off

Philadelphia, PA -- On September 5th, Funsavers launches the 2012 Funsavers Fun Packs, featuring over four dozen exclusive offers on subscriptions, memberships and ticket packages that are discounted up to 50%.

Fun Packs go on sale Wednesday, September 5 and can be purchased through September 28. Offers are listed at and a complete list of participating organizations is listed below.

“Everyone is represented, from Parkway attractions like the Franklin Institute and the Art Museum, to dozens of theatres, gardens, art centers, film programs, musical groups and historic attractions,” said John McInerney, a Vice President at the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, which runs Funsavers. “It is a great way to save money while experiencing firsthand why Philadelphia is on so many top ten lists across the country.”

Funsavers Fun Packs provide discounts of up to 50% on a wide variety of cultural offerings. For example, the Opera Company of Philadelphia is offering a three show package of La Bohème, The Magic Flute and the premiere of Silent Night.  Normally, those three shows sold separately would cost $420.00. With the Funsavers Fun Pack, it costs only $225.00, a savings of 47%. On the lower cost end, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is offering six months of unlimited free admission, full member benefits and a free guest pass for only $35 (Value $55).

Funsavers, established in 2003, is one of the country’s oldest and largest ‘daily deal’ sites, with over 110,000 email subscribers, and over 48,000 tickets sold annually.

“We stand out from the commercial discount sites because we are community-run and focused on supporting our members and engaging new audiences,” said McInerney. “Last year we generated over $750,000 in income for cultural nonprofits and we are the only site that shares our consumer data with the participating cultural groups.  We also use that data to produce critical research for the field on cultural consumer behavior.”

Funsavers also helps drive consumers to, the Cultural Alliance’s full regional events calendar that includes full price offerings, free events and other special promotions. The Cultural Alliance recently launched a third consumer website,, which offers detailed information on creative rental locations from hundreds of cultural groups in Greater Philadelphia. The site is perfect for organizations looking to put on performances and individuals looking for unique venues for events and parties.
