DEAL OF THE DAY: Helping you de-stress for less at a "rage room"!

Have you ever wanted to turn your plate into a Frisbee and launch it across the room to shatter against the wall? Whether you're looking for something fun to do or a way to let out some stress, our Smart Shopper Deal of the Day is all the rage... literally!

Check out Simply Smashing Rage Release Room in Tempe! Owner Steve Wilk told us that it's great therapy for people. Here's how it works.

Wilk goes to auctions, shops or gets donations of items like glass bottles, vases, computer keyboards, frames, plates, etc. You can write on the items if you want, so that way when you smash it, you get rid of the negative energy. For an extra fee, you can bring your own items you want to smash or even have them print a photo to put into a frame for you.

There are three rooms. You can either go in alone or with a group of up to four people. There's a wall where you can write a message in chalk, a wall where you can use Sharpie to write, and two brick walls that you can launch your items toward or hit in that direction. You can use a bat, a hammer, a golf club, a crow bar and other options.

There are different sessions. The longer you're in there destroying things, the more you'll pay.

I went to give it a try. I put on a suit, a protective mask, they had gloves, and I wore close-toed shoes. There was a carpeted table in the middle of the room. I placed a flower vase on top, and swung with a bat. I wrote, "High Prices," on a glass plate and threw it at the brick wall with all my might. I hung a glass bottle from a chain in the ceiling like a pinata, and went to town. And, as Bob Ross would say, I "beat the devil" out of a computer keyboard.

Wilk joked that in other places, "When you break it, you buy it. Here, you buy it to break it."

We are smashing prices for you with our Smart Shopper Deal of the Day!


There are three different options for a 20-minute session. It's typically $28 for one person, $56 for two people, and $112 for up to four people. But, not for you Smart Shoppers! You'll score 25 percent off those three options! And there's a range of 12 to about 28 items you can destroy depending on your party size.
