What You'll Get
Like winning a water-balloon fight, beating shoppers to the best bargains requires determination, strategy, and a willingness to pelt strangers with water balloons. Bask in hard-earned retail victory with today’s Groupon: for $42, you get a chauffeured shopping excursion for two from New England Trips (an $84 value). Choose from the following options:
- All-day trip to Patriot Place, including an optional visit to The Hall
- All-day trip to Wrentham Village Premium Outlets
- All-day trip split between both venues
Shopping excursions embark everyday except holidays and New England Patriots home-game days. Direct Boston hotel pickup is available for nonresidents, and area residents can embark at either the Back Bay station on Dartmouth Street at 8:30 a.m. or the South Station on Atlantic Avenue at 9 a.m. and head back to Boston at 4:15 p.m.
New England Trips spirits gift-getters away on daylong shopping excursions in comfortable 14-passenger mini coaches, leveling up their purchasing power with VIP coupon books. Refreshed by complimentary water and snacks, bargain-hunting pairs gallivant around Patriot Place’s 1.3 million square feet of stores and restaurants that include the outdoorsy outfitter Bass Pro Shops or the wardrobe-bolstering Claire’s, Old Navy, and Express. For an extra fee, shoppers can burst through their own paper likeness and into The Hall, a temple built to all things Patriot, housing a treasure trove of New England football artifacts and high-tech, immersive exhibits.
Meanwhile, busfuls of buyers pour into the open-air save-atorium that is Wrentham Village Premium Outlets and its more than 170 stores, touting hyper-recognizable brands such as Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Burberry, Nike, and Ralph Lauren. Travelers can take advantage of the outlet mall’s lockers for a $5 rental fee (not covered in this Groupon), stowing unwieldy armfuls of loot or pinning up pictures of Rocky for inspiration to fight past cramping feet.
