Save Money with the Entertainment Book

Aug 7, 2009

I have been getting a copy of the Entertainment Coupon Book every year for at least, the past 7 or 8 and I have never been disappointed.

What is it, you ask? Well, it's a coupon book designed for your area of the country or city. The book usually costs $20 (and often sold through school fundraisers), though you can sometimes get it on their website for $15 plus free shipping if you wait until the "rush" to get them in the fall is over.

What my husband and I like most about the coupon book is the "Buy one entree, get one free" coupons for a variety of local restaurants. We figure, if we use the book just once, we have gotten our money back on it. After that, everything we get is a good deal.

Often times, using that book is how we discover new places to eat in Austin. Let's say we want to go out to eat - we grab the book and see which restaurants have good coupons. Two meals for the price of one is a great way to pay for "date night." And, sometimes, I'll go out with a girlfriend and we'll use the coupon together. So, we get two meals for the price of one and then we split the bill - so we are each really just paying for half of an entree.

There are other great coupons in there, too - such as discounts on movie tickets, retail stores, grocery store purchases, rental cars and vacations. When you register your book online, there are also additional discounts you can print out from the website.

We always keep our book in the car, so that it's handy when we're "out and about." Many times, before we make a purchase, one of us will say to the other, "Hey, check to see if there is a coupon in the Entertainment book for this." Often times, there is.

So, if you've never heard of, or purchased, and Entertainment book, you might want to look into it. The ones for the 2010 year should be going on sale in the near future. Check it out!
