Merlin logo2for1 Alton Tws, Legoland etc with £3ish cerealAdults go 'free' vch on selected Kellogg's cereals and snacks

32 attractions

Look for promotional packs of Kellogg's cereal and snacks, including Rice Krispies, Frosties, Crunchy Nut and Squares (£2ish-£4ish at most supermarkets), to get free adult entry via a 'Grown-Ups Go Free' voucher for 32 Merlin attractions.

The voucher's valid until 30 Jun 2017. Effectively this is a 2for1, as you must buy a full-price on-the-gate child or adult ticket (usually up to £52ish) to get the free adult entry, but this could actually work out better than a 2for1 ticket if you’re an adult going with a child as generally child tickets tend to be cheaper than adult ones.

The vouchers can be exchanged for entry on the day at 32 Merlin attractions such as Legoland, Thorpe Park, Chessington, Alton Towers, Sea Life centres and sanctuaries, the Dungeons and Madame Tussauds. Some dates are excluded at attractions - see 'more info' below.

How much you’ll save

As this 2for1 is for on-the-gate tickets, you can save a great deal. For example, an adult ticket at Alton Towers is £51.60 on the gate, so even compared with buying a cheaper advance ticket online for £36.12, the voucher saves you £22.80ish factoring in the cereal cost. Before using the voucher, you should compare this offer against others to see if there's a better one for you (see all theme park deals).

You can also book online

To guarantee entry and beat the queues at selected attractions, there's also an option to book your tickets online in advance using unique codes found on Kellogg’s cereal packets (though you’ll still pay the on-the-gate price). Technically, these codes can be combined with the physical vouchers to obtain two free adult tickets with two full-price child tickets purchased - see 'more info' for full details.

More info

Here's a list of Kellogg's products with the voucher. Ensure you take the voucher with you on the day. It can only be used against the gate price, not the discounted online price. The age classification for an adult ticket varies between attractions so make sure you check before you go. Valid for standard entry tickets only.

Also check the venue's individual opening dates as some are closed at certain times of the year. For example, Chessington, Legoland Windsor, Alton Towers and Thorpe Park close in November. There are also some extra excluded dates listed below:

  • 25-28 Mar and 1-4 Apr 2016 at The London Eye
  • 9 Oct-6 Nov 2016 at The Blackpool Tower Attractions (The Blackpool Tower Eye is subject to weather conditions)
  • 21-31 Oct 2016 at Thorpe Park
  • Every Fri and Mon until Sun 27 Mar, and 29-31 Oct 2016 at The Blackpool Tower Dungeon
  • 28-31 Oct 2016 at The London, York and Edinburgh Dungeons
  • 1-31 Dec 2016 at Legoland Windsor
  • 25 Dec 2016 at all attractions


York Dungeon is currently closed due to flooding in late 2015 and there isn't a timescale for when it will reopen.

Promotional vouchers don’t guarantee entry into attractions in the event of venue capacity being reached. Offer can't be used with any other offer or concession, reward or loyalty schemes, pre-purchased/advance tickets, online or call centre bookings, combination tickets, two day passes, annual passes, Q-bot, Fastrack, priority entrance, early ride time, secondary ticketed events, hotel events or group bookings.

Or book online in advance using promo codes on cereal packets

To guarantee entry in advance, you can book tickets online (excludes The Blackpool Tower Circus) at a special Merlin website ahead of your visit. To do this, you need a unique 10 digit code found on promotional packs of Kellogg’s cereal only, either underneath the carton flap or on the base of the box.

This method of redeeming the offer requires you to pay the gate price in advance and print out your tickets. At selected attractions, you can scan these tickets and walk right through the gates, enabling you to beat the queues.

Get a free digital photograph

For a limited time in Tesco stores, special packs of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes 750g will include an additional voucher to claim a free digital photograph at participating venues.

Kellogg's logo2for1 Alton Towers, Sea Life & more with £3ish cereal'Adults go free' voucher on selected Kellogg's cereals and snacks

Expired

Look for promotional packs of Kellogg's cereal and snacks, including Rice Krispies, Frosties, Crunchy Nut and Squares (£2ish-£3ish at most supermarkets until 30 Jun 2015), to get a "Grown-Ups Go Free" voucher for 28 UK Merlin theme parks and attractions.

Effectively this is a 2for1, as you must buy a full-price child or adult ticket to get the free adult entry. It's 'grrreat!' as you can get it now and go any time over the summer.

This could actually work out better than a 2for1 ticket if you’re an adult going with a child as generally, children’s tickets tend to be cheaper than adult tickets.

The vouchers can be exchanged for entry on the day at 28 Merlin attractions, such as Alton Towers, Legoland, Chessington, Sea Life centres and sanctuaries and Madame Tussauds, until 30 Jun 2016. Some dates are excluded at attractions, see 'more info' below.

Check online prices first

As this 2for1 is for on-the-gate tickets (usually up to £50 a ticket), it's always worth checking online before you use the voucher as these can be much cheaper than the gate and there are sometimes online offers.

We found at some attractions this voucher isn't worth it compared to normal online advance prices. For example, a standard adult off-peak Thorpe Park ticket is £49.99 on the gate and £24.99 in advance online – so using the voucher will cost the same as booking online for two adults. If you then factor in the price of the cereal, you're actually making a £3ish loss with the voucher.

However, there are other attractions where you can save a great deal. For example, an adult gate ticket at Alton Towers is £50.40 but £37.80 seven days in advance online normally, so the voucher saves £22.20ish factoring in the cereal cost.  

Also make sure there are no other deals on, as attractions have offers all year round. 

Important: Make sure the expiry on the voucher matches 30 Jun 2016. This deal runs annually so there is a chance you could get a cereal with a voucher from last year’s promotion. 

More info

Voucher and details are on packs available in most supermarkets till 30 Jun 2015 - subject to availability. Here's a list of Kellogg's products with the voucher. Ensure you take the voucher with you on the day. It can only be used against the gate price, not the discounted online price.

The age classification for an adult ticket varies between attractions so make sure you check before you go. Valid for standard entry tickets only and one voucher per person, per transaction. 

Also check the venue's individual opening dates as some are closed at certain times of the year. 

Excludes the upcoming Shrek's Adventure attraction and any secondary attractions including the Castle Dungeon at Warwick Castle. There are also some extra excluded dates listed below:

  • 9 Oct –1 Nov 2015 at The Blackpool Tower Attractions (The Blackpool Tower Eye is subject to weather conditions)
  • 23–31 Oct 2015 at Thorpe Park
  • 1-31 Aug 2015 & 29–31 Oct 2015 at The London Dungeon
  • 30–31 Oct 2015 at The Blackpool Tower Dungeon
  • 31 Oct–1 Nov 2015 at the Edinburgh Dungeon

2016 exclusion dates will be available from the end of 2015 on the Kellogg's website. 

Offer can't be used with: 

  • Any other offer or concession
  • Reward or loyalty scheme
  • Pre-purchased/advance tickets
  • Online or call centre ticket bookings (except the London Dungeon which you can pre-book online via this Kellogg's London Dungeon link, but you must still bring your voucher with you on the day along with your pre-booked ticket)
  • Combination tickets, 2 Day Pass, Annual Pass, Q-bot, Fastrack or priority entrance, Early Ride Time, or rail inclusive tickets

Merlin logo2for1 theme park tix with 40p-70p papersMust buy adult ticket. Incl Alton Towers, Thorpe Park & Chessington

Expired

Buy The Sun, The Sun on Sunday or The Scottish Sun (40p weekdays, 60p Sat, 70p Sun) between Sat 11 and Fri 17 Oct and get a 2for1 voucher every day for 24 Merlin attractions, including Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Sea Life centres and The Dungeons.

Each voucher gets one adult or child free ticket when one full-price gate adult ticket is bought. It's good, as you can get it now and go any time till the end of the year or until the attraction closes for the 2014 season. Some dates are excluded, see 'more info' below.

Check online prices first

Buying tickets online in advance can be much cheaper than the gate price – sometimes just over half the price. So if there’s an odd number of people in your party, buying this way will often beat buying at the gate with the 2for1. So if you’re planning a trip, check online first.  

For example, an adult Thorpe Park ticket is £49.99 on the gate but costs from £25.99 if you book 2+ days in advance online - so the voucher only saves around £1 for two adults.

On the other hand, an adult gate ticket at Alton Towers is £49.20 but £36.90 seven days in advance online, so voucher saves around £24 for two adults. 

See the T&Cs for a full list of attractions

More info

The offer's not available in Northern Ireland. 

Ensure you take the voucher with you on the day. It can only be used against the on-the-day price, not the discounted online price. Valid for standard entry tickets only. Children must always be accompanied by an adult, check the attraction's website for more details. 

The T&Cs say one voucher per person and per transaction, so if you’re a big group, you may have to pay separately.

The voucher's valid till 31 Dec 2014, apart from the following as they close earlier: Thorpe Park, Chessington and Legoland Windsor (till Mon 3 Nov) and Alton Towers (till Fri 7 Nov). Be aware, the opening times of the individual attractions may still vary, so always check. 

There are some extra excluded dates listed below:

  • 29 Oct - 2 Nov 2014 at Thorpe Park
  • 29-31 Oct 2014 at London Dungeons
  • 30 Oct-1 Nov 2014 at The Blackpool Tower Dungeons
  • 31 Oct - 2 Nov 2014 at York Dungeons
  • 30 Oct - 2 Nov 2014 at Edinburgh Dungeons
  • 8-9 Nov 2014 at Alton Towers
  • 25 Dec 2014 at all attractions

Offer can't be used with:

The London Dungeons

Merlin logo50% off gate prices at Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, etcOn selected single packs of £1ish Walkers crisps

Expired

Look for promotional single packs of Walkers Wotsits, Quavers, Squares, Monster Munch and French Fries (55p-£1), which have a half-price entry voucher on the back. Each voucher gets 50% off one adult or child full-price gate ticket at one of 25 Merlin attractions, including Alton Towers, Legoland, Thorpe Park, Sea Life and Madame Tussauds.

Check online prices first

The 50% saving is based on tickets bought on the gate, which can cost up to £49.99. However online tickets (which you need to book at least a day in advance) are cheaper, so the saving against these tickets is smaller or about the same.

For example, an adult ticket on the gate at Thorpe Park is £49.99 (£25 with voucher) but only £25.99 if you book 2+ days in advance online. On the other hand, an adult gate ticket at Alton Towers is £49.20 (£24.60 with voucher) but £36.90 seven days in advance online. So use it with Thorpe Park and the deals not that strong, but use it at Alton Towers and it's cracking. Always check online prices if you know you’re visiting. 

The voucher’s valid till the end of the year but promotional packs are likely to disappear at the end of August, so grab them now if you think you might make a trip this year. Some attractions close before the end of the year and there are some excluded dates, see more info below. See the T&Cs for a full list of attractions

More info

We got in touch with Walkers and it says the packs will be delivered to retailers until the end of August, although it couldn't give an exact date and it's while stocks last. It's valid on single standard or grab bag packs.  

Ensure you take the voucher with you on the day. It can only be used against the on-the-day price, not the discounted online price. Valid for standard entry tickets only. Children must always be accompanied by an adult, check the attraction's website for more details. 

The T&Cs say one voucher per person and per transaction, so if there's more than one of you in your group with a voucher, you may have to pay separately.

The voucher's valid till 31 Dec 2014, apart from the following as they close earlier: Thorpe Park, Chessington and Legoland Windsor (till Mon 3 Nov) and Alton Towers (till Fri 7 Nov). Be aware, the opening times of the individual attractions may still vary, so always check. 

There are some extra excluded dates listed below:

  • 25-30 Oct 2014 at The Blackpool Tower Attractions
  • 11 Oct-2 Nov 2014 at Thorpe Park
  • 30-31 Oct 2014 at York, Edinburgh and Blackpool Dungeons (voucher excludes London Dungeon) 
  • 8-9 Nov 2014 at Alton Towers
  • 25 Dec 2014 at all attractions
  • any special events, hotel events, concerts at all attractions


Offer can't be used with: 

  • any other offer or concession 
  • reward or loyalty scheme

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
