bowlingBowling is a great way for the whole family to have fun, but with game cost, shoe rental, and refreshments, it can get a little expensive. Luckily, the folks at Brunswick have decided to help out a little with some awesome coupons. Right now, if you join their Brunswick Bonus Zone – their e-mail club – you’ll get a coupon that gets you a free game of bowling when you buy one. Just go to and look for the “coupons” tab, then enter your information. The e-coupon comes to you immediately. (It’s only good Sunday through Thursday, and you can get up to 5 free games when you buy 5.)

Brunswick also has some nice coupons on their site that give kids the opportunity to bowl for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Get one of the coupons here. Kids age 15 and younger can use these coupons – they get 2 free games when an adult buys two, or 30 minutes of free bowling when an adult buys 30 minutes (at centers offering an hourly rate). Good through 12/31/09.

You can find a Brunswick bowling alley at Westcreek Lanes, 3025 Alta Mesa Blvd., in Fort Worth. There are also locations in Denton and Watauga. See their website for complete details.
