      Yaaaa! I was going to let you know about this deal, but someone beat me to it! I bought one this morning – awesome deal!

    • crickola

      Thanks! Awesome Deal!

      Be careful–the groupon site is not completely safe. My geek husband said 'no padlock, no buy'. I wrote on their discussion board, asking if they could get it secure before the deal expires, but I'm not optimistic.

      • Hope you see this before the deal is over. I just went in to see and once you click on the “Buy it” it pulls up a secure page then. I have a padlock at the bottom right of my screen as I enter my billing info. So you are good.

        • Elizabeth

          thanks Jenny–I think it's a browser issue. Instead of a padlock, I still have a warning message about the resources being viewed by others in transit on their site when I use google chrome, but it looks like the IE on another computer is safe. I'm getting the deal now!! :)

      Is there any reciprocity with this membership?

      Just bought it–what a great deal, and a good place to get the kids out of the heat in the summer. Thanks! Groupons said it will take 24 hours to process–I'm hoping it will be sooner so we can use it tomorrow.

      Also, I noticed on the Fernbank site that they're offering 2 free IMAX tickets with new memberships bought April 3-11–I'm hoping we'll get these too, even though we bought their membership through Groupons–anyone know?

      • WendyNewnan

        I just got my own question answered. I called Member services at IMAX, and buying the membership through groupon will still get us the promotion with two free IMAX tickets. She said to just ask at the ticket window when we're there. Yeah!

      i want to check into buying this, as I'm not far from there, but when I click on link, it brings up Mint Museum in Charlotte, not Fern Museum in Atlanta???

      • Elizabeth

        I would look at the url and make sure it is groupon.com/atlanta. It might be directing to another city. I think you can just start over, typing http://www.groupon.com, and then choose atlanta. good luck!

      • StacyKirkus

        Lynn- You need to change the city drop down box to Atlanta. Then Fernbank will come up as the deal of the day.

    • StacyKirkus

      Thanks Jenny! This was perfect for our trip to Atlanta next weekend. A great deal for our family of 6! :)

      Must activate by expiration date. Membership good for 1 year after activation. Limit 1 per person. May purchase multiple as gifts. New members only. Not applicable to existing memberships.

      I'm a little scared to buy it because we might not make it there by 5/12 to activate it.

      • Moorebuilder

        I think it said you can activate it online also.
