1st Time Customer Discounts

Nearly every dispensary offers a discount to new customers. The Healing Center San Diego in Mission Valley offers a robust step up program for new customers: 35% off first visit, 30% off second visit and 25% off the third visit.
Other deals are often announced on Grower and Dispensary social media platforms too. Walgreens just had a Blem takeover day with significant discounts on all Balm products.
BRING CASH: While some dispensaries have provisions for paying with a debit card, the vast majority accept cash as the primary means of payment. So a quick way to save $4 with every transaction is to visit your bank’s ATM before heading out. Those ATM’s in dispensary lobbies are generally an expensive way to get cash that is already yours!
