For one low price, you get access to over many attractions, saving big compared to individual tickets. There are different options available with some overlap depending on whether you are visiting mostly San Diego or Los Angeles.

To minimize the chance of falling for a scam, do the following:
1. Ask for a phone number to call them back. If they won't provide one, don't do business with them.
2. Tell them they will need to provide an ID and a bill of sale. That will scare most scammers away.
3. Don't buy plastic gift cards without a store receipt showing they were actually purchased.
4. Meet in a public place like a fast food restaurant.
5. Bring a cell phone and a friend.
6. Bring a bill of sale and ask them to sign it. Verify their identity with a look at their drivers license.
7. Trust your instincts. If you don't trust the person, don't buy tickets from them.
8. Maybe your friend can snap a photo with the cell phone, just in case (in front of their car with license plate if you are really lucky).
9. If you up a victim of a scam, report it to email@example.com, and notify the police.
I'm always interested in finding cheap tickets and discounts, so here are some other ideas:
1. Check out our San Diego Events page for current events. We try to highlight free days, half price admission times, etc.
2. Large employers typically have an discounted tickets available. Ask your HR department to start one if you don't already have one.
3. Become a member of groups like the San Diego Zoo or Birch Aquarium, and enjoy a tax writeoff for your membership. You might pay for your membership with just one or two visits, and can receive free guest passes and San Diego coupons too. This is a great way to help support these organizations and have fun too!
4. Ask your friends - maybe they have tickets or passes they can't use, and would be happy to give them to you or sell them to you at a discount. Post a notice at work.
5. Volunteer - you will usually get free admission.
6. Ask about senior, military, AAA or other discounts and San Diego coupons.
7. Just ask - maybe they will help you out!
