PHOENIX -- When it comes to seeking out bargains, Alicia Markham from is a discount diva!  This week she tracked down deals for food, fun and warehouse shopping.

1. Alicia has a deal going right now for the POGO pass. This is a 12-month pass that will get you into fun spots around the valley. You'll enjoy Golfland Sunsplash, the SeaLife Aquarium, the Phoenix Zoo, Diamondbacks games, The Arizona Museum of Natural History (we call it the dinosaur museum),  Enchanted Island, JumpStreet, ASU Athletics games, Phoenix Rock Gym, Stratum Laser Tag, and more. The passes usually go for around a $100 each, so $200 for two, but they're worth a lot more than that. Alicia posted a code on that will get you two POGO passes for $68 ($34 each).

2. Pei Wei is celebrating their 13th anniversary with a 20 percent off deal today (Wednesday, July 31). Order online and use promo code THIRTEEN to enjoy the savings.
3. Sam's Club is hosting an open house this weekend (Aug. 2-4). That means even if you don't have a membership, you can enjoy the warehouse savings.
