WATER you up to during the hot months? You should cool off at Wet 'n' Wild in Phoenix with this deal! Save lives and get several rewards!


Bring a case of water to any of the 13 Phoenix Metro Ford Dealerships or any of the four Valley Famous Dave's Restaurants May 4 - 20. When you bring in the water, you'll get a half-off-any-day general admission coupon. That's good for up to four admissions to each person who donates!

This is the sixth year they are collecting water to help the Salvation Army Red Shield Survival Squad that provides hydration and safety at heat relief stations during excessive heat warnings.

The waters need to be the standard 16.9 ounces and be a case of 24 bottles or more.

There's an extra perk when you donate at Famous Dave's.

You get one coupon per donation for one FREE brisket sandwich through August. The coupon for the freebie and the discount admission will be available while supplies last.

Ford wants to collect 150,000 bottles. Last year, they collected over 136,000. Ford will jumpstart the drive with a $15,000 grant, courtesy of Ford's Operation Better World Phoenix program, and Wet 'N' Wild will donate 100 cases of water. 

Here's the best price we found on water this week at the grocery stores! Albertsons has a Clip or Click coupon. Pay $1.77 each for a 24-pack of Refresh Water (there's a limit of two). After that, it will cost $2.99. It's valid through May 8.

If you miss that window or want to go later in the summer, here's a nice tip! Order your tickets online — you'll save $10. 

For instance, Monday through Friday admission for adults is $30.99 online and $40.99 at the gate. Saturday and Sunday, it's $33.99 online with three-day advance notice or $35.99 online without notice. At the gate, it's $43.99.
