Just Ordered My $15 Entertainment Book

by The Happy Rock on April 14, 2008

Real savings on all you do!Just $15 for a plethora of great coupons. For those that don’t know, the Entertainment book is a local book of coupons for everything from fast food to casual dining to theme parks and golf courses. It is $35 dollars when it first comes out, but gradually drops throughout the year. The current $15 and free shipping deal is set to expire on 4/30/2008. We normally buy the book early in the year, but figured we don’t really need it in the winter and would get better value later.

The book contains more than enough great coupons to be well worth it, but only if you remember to use the coupons and you don’t spend more money because of the coupons. We have bought the book for the last few years, and gotten more than our share of great discounts from it. Here are a few of the highlights for the South Jersey book. Our local mechanic has a 20% up to $25 coupon that usually covers the price of the book. Buy one get one free(BOGO) Papa John’s, Cold Stone Creamery, and Rita’s Water Ice. $2.00 off coupons for the Camden Adventure Aquarium and $4.00 Six Flags Great Adventure. That is about $75 in coupons I know I will use for $15, plus a handful of others that will get used as needed. You can search on their website to makes sure there are some good local deals before you buy.

One little tip that The Happy Rockette has done the last few years is to buy a small inexpensive photo album. Cut out the coupons of interest, fill the photo album, and throw the coupon album in the car. It helps serve as a great reminder and provide quick access to help us extract even more value out of the book.

Anyone have other good tips, or great experiences with the Entertainment Book?

my mom used to get entertainment books all the time, but I haven’t yet. I am afraid I won’t use it.

I am always looking for coupons though…

I just don’t know if I should get it…

::pondering:: Do you find it always pays for itself?

We’ve bought these entertainment books before, but we always end up forgetting that we have them, and then don’t use them. Your tip about a coupon album seems to be a good idea, maybe we should look into doing that.

I’ve used entertainment books in the past, and assuming there is something you would use them for they are great. Sports tickets and hotel stays are really good for those.

take care,

I’ve bought entertainments in the past, but they usually go unused. I try to avoid spending money on dining and one-off types of entertainment, so the coupons do me little good.

I know this is kind of an old post but I just had to say I LOVE my entertainment book. This year I waited until the price dropped to get mine but I’m so addicted to it I might give in and pay full price for the 2009 book.

I have probably saved at least a couple hundred bucks if not more. I used the hotel finder thing to get a great deal on a 4 star hotel in Minneapolis and well as a discount on a rental car. I gave some of the coupons to friends and co-workers. One guy saved over $40 at a bike repair place. I have used quite a few of the restaurant savings. I also passed out some of the coupons I knew I would never use like the kid themed ones to people on freecycle.com

I LOVE the entertainment book!!
