Whether you're looking for some family fun or want to turn date night into skate night, our Smart Shopper Deal of the Day is just for you!

Get the full experience at Skateland Chandler, Skateland Mesa and Great Skate in Glendale! They have sound systems, live DJs, cafes, arcades with awesome prizes, and obviously lots of wheels turning on the rinks!

Skate rentals range from $3.50 to $4.50 depending on the style (skates or rollerblades) and the location. Now, those prices are NOT changing with our Smart Shopper Deal of the Day, but...


Friday through Monday, August 31 to September 3, go to these three rinks, and you'll score 50% off admission to public sessions that are normally around $7 to $10. That drops the price to $3.50 - $5.

There are some exclusions. Those are listed below:

  • The deal is good through Labor Day weekend, Friday - Monday.
  • Tickets have to be purchased in person and you have to mention Smart Shopper.
