Half-price entry to Alton Towers & Sea Life
Or Warwick Castle. Via £1ish Carex hand wash
If you pick up a promotional bottle of Carex hand wash (norm £1ish) or Carex shower gel (norm £3ish), you can use it to get a half-price on-the-gate adult or child ticket at Alton Towers, Sea Life centres, or Warwick Castle until 31 May 2020.
Available in Asda, Boots, Morrisons, Ocado, Sainsbury's, Savers, Tesco, Waitrose and Wilko until Sep 2019, promotional bottles must be handed over at the attraction ticket booth. Carex says they must be empty, but if you need a ticket before you'd finish the bottle you could always decant it into another bottle before you go. See full T&Cs.
See our 100+ things to do with the kids for more fun-filled family days out.
How much can I save?
As adult on-the-gate tickets cost £56 at Alton Towers, this deal could save you £28 if you buy the cheapest promotional bottle of Carex. Adult on-the-gate tickets at Sea Life London cost £40, so you can save £20 with this deal.
Whilst there are a few 2for1 offers for Alton Towers or Sea Life centres, this offer is useful if you're visiting with an odd number of people.
