Leisure Discounts: Don’t Forget This Entertainment Savings Gem
By Imani Dada
I can think of few things I love more than doubling up on savings. If you’re over age 25, you’re probably very familiar with that small but thick digest chock full of leisure discounts known simply as The Entertainment Book.
Long before mobile coupons and savings apps, this book was a must-have for any budget-conscious consumer who wanted to save on a wide range of entertainment and other expenses. Although apps and coupon codes get more hype, you shouldn’t forget about this little savings gem, especially when it’s at an all-time low price.
Ten or more years ago, The Entertainment Book used to cost, if memory serves correctly, about $75 — an amazing deal considering you could save hundreds of dollars on entertainment such as amusement parks, fine dining, the theatre and art galleries. Still, the price tag of $75 to get these leisure discounts was a bit off-putting for some consumers, especially those who were worried they might not use enough coupons before the expiry date to justify the cost. If you were one of them, you don’t have to worry about that any longer.
The 2012 Entertainment Book is currently available for a measly $9.99. If you think about it, you could get that money back in just one dinner outing with your friends or family, or on a lunch-time shopping trip. Even if you pooh-pooh clipping coupons and prefer handy apps, you’d be an unwise guy or gal to miss out on this book that contains thousands of dollars worth of entertainment savings.
Leisure Discounts You Can Expect
Besides the ones mentioned above, here are some of the other types of entertainment you can score deals on:
• Bowling Alley
• Car Rentals
• Family Attractions
• Fast food
• Sporting Events
• Travel…and much more
If you’re planning to throw your own entertainment at home keep The Entertainment Book handy when you go shopping because it also contains grocery coupons. Besides discounts on groceries, this coupon book offers savings on other everyday stuff such as dry cleaning, car washes and oil changes.
But I Still Prefer Savings Apps!
So you don’t want to lug around a chunky little book in your Penny Lane or Gucci bag? No problem. You can still get cheap entertainment by signing up for an Entertainment.com™ Savings Membership for $19.99. With the membership comes a handy app that lets you easily find discounts in your neighbourhood and redeem mobile offers straight from your phone.
