MassValuePass

MassValuePass for savings on Boston attractions and restaurantsThe Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism issues the free MassValuePass via an e-mail about 4 times a year.  

This used to be one of my favorite places to find discount coupons in the 10%-15% range - always hit or miss, but you could usually find a few places to save a few dollars.  Now, lots of the "deals" usually turn out to be regular admission prices to attractions, with a few hotel promotions thrown into the mix, such as a 5% food credit at the Boston Omni Parker House Hotels.  Maybe some of the real "deals" will return now that the economy is improving!
