I’ve briefly mentioned Entertainment Books here before. For the unfamiliar, this is a book of coupons specific to your area (though some of the coupons are national, such as car rentals or hotel discounts) with a huge variety of savings. Is it worth it? Well, that depends. It depends on your area (does the book for your area feature places you patronize?) and how often you use the services listed (e.g., there are a lot of restaurant coupons; do you eat out?). I can’t tell you if the Entertainment Book is right for you. But it’s worth checking out.
And if you check it out right now, you’ll see that purchase of a 2007 book currently comes with a $25 restaurant gift certificate and $1 shipping. The cost of the books varies by area, but ranges from $25-$45. I’d say that if you’re buying a $25 book this is a great deal, and if you’re buying a $45 book, still a pretty good deal.
Entertainment Books make great gifts for hard-to-buy-for relatives who like to pinch pennies, by the way. Just sayin’.
