How To Never Pay Full Price At the Bowling AlleyHow to Save Big On Bowling

I wanted to take my young nephews bowling last year. I went to the AMF bowling website to pre-book and…BAM…..2 games with shoe hire for 4 (two adults and 2 children) cost $91. No, I haven’t mis-typed $19!

And that doesn’t include the food and drink you will have once you get there! So for a family evening out, you are looking at around $120. Ouch.

However, as with many family activates, if you are a bit savvy you can cut the costs down – keeping the fun intact whilst saving your wallet from getting a battering.

So read our guide about how to never pay full price for Bowling ever again!


Often centres have offers on line, so do you research before hand. Some of the pages to the larger bowling chains are here…



Loads of offers come up on the daily deals sites, Groupon, Living Social etc. So if you know you are going bowling, make sure you check out their sites first. A great place to start is ‘All the Deals’, which a daily deals aggregator. Just search for bowling and filter by area. Deals are often for the smaller centres, but it’s a great way to get up to 70% off!



Are you a member of either the RACV or RACQ? If yes, they have an offer with AMF bowling to provide Buy One Get One Free on adult bowling games. So you essentially get 2 games for $15 (i.e. the price of one)– valid for up to four people.

Simply show your RACQ membership card at any AMF Bowling Centre
