EXPIRED!Discount Deal on Texas Renaissance Festival Tickets at Timewise Shell Stations

My husband actually found this deal (I am so proud of him).  I don't think this is going on at all Shell gas stations but it was listed at 3 of the 4 stores I have been at recently.  The store should be able to tell you the details as the 3 that were participating had signs, buttons and were very informative. This is actually a better deal then pre-ordering from the Tex Ren Fest website if you have 2 adults going.

The deal is as follows: Purchase any 3 AMP energy, Starbucks Frappuccino or Rockstar Energy Drinks and get a free adult Renaissance festival ticket, with purchase of an adult ticket at the gate.
The fine print pretty much says they will stamp your receipt and you take this to the will call booth to get your free ticket with purchase of an adult ticket.  Purchase must be made in one transaction.  The cheapest item I found was the small bottles of Starbucks Frappuccino for $1.99.  Directly next to the cold case was a tearpad for .40 these Starbucks.
So, the three Starbucks $1.99 each -.40 each = $4.77 so a little over $5 after tax
Adult tickets at the gate cost $23 + $5 at Shell = $28 for 2 adult tickets or $14 each.

You can't beat that price with Advance Ticket sales unless you went during opening weekend.  I thought this was a pretty sweet deal if you are going to the Renaissance Festival.

UPDATE:  I read the fine print of the poster again and noticed it says Timewise receipts.  By deductive reasoning I googled Timewise and this is the company that owns some convenience stores and gas stations.  So I am willing to bet ALL Timewise locations are doing this promotion. (but not 100% certain).  They are owned by Landmark Industries.  From the Landmark Industries website I found THIS list of Timewise locations. (again I am NOT certain if all are participating in this promotion, but you could call the store near you and inquire)
  Good luck guys!

Update!  Guys, PLEASE STOP calling Pepsi and Timewise!  This deal was posted last year and was only for last year.  Sorry, but it appears they have not doing this promo this year.

Do they actually have a special stamp for this promotion or is bringing the original receipt good enough ?

Stephanie (aka zoeys_mom, ZM) said...

laforge, they need to stamp your receipt and you take this stamped receipt to the will call booth.
