Remember how we mentioned that we always get an Entertainment Book for Christmas from my parents. It is one of our most favorite gifts and it has become tradition! Well, Alex gave me the chance to go to the beauty college for a new hairdo as one of my Christmas presents. I go to the beauty college as I have always had a good experience in the many, many years I have gone, they use the highest end hair care products, and they are 50% cheaper than a normal salon!
So on December 28th, I had my appointment to redeem my Christmas present from Alex. So I pulled out my entertainment book and found a coupon in there for $10 off a color service at the beauty college I had the appointment at!
So, I was super excited to make Alex’s thoughtful and more affordable gift even cheaper by using the $10 off coupon! And….I cut 6 inches off my hair and had them dye it brown – I have always been blonde, whether dark or light, but never brown. So it was a fun adventure. In the end, I got the haircut, color, shampoo and style for $22 after the $10 off coupon from the Entertainment Book!!
So we have already used 1 out of thousands of coupons and already saved $10.
And, even though we get one each year, we also buy a second one for ourselves so that we have double coupons. I am sure I will use the second $10 off color service coupon in the future months this year 🙂
So…the good news is that the Entertainment Books are only $20.13 for the first book and $15 for the second book (if you want two!) shipped this week! These are normally $35 each, so this is a really good deal. But we are going to show you how to get them for $16.61 or even as low as $9.49 each book! So keep reading on!
For a few more details about this book (in case you don’t know about it) is that it allows you or your gift receiver to eat out, be entertained, grocery discounts, museums, outing and so many more things in your local area for 50% off. There are literally thousands of 50% off coupons in the Entertainment Book!
The coupons all expire November 1, 2013, so you will also have the next 10 months to use the coupons. And to us there is no question about the value of the book especially early on as you get more value the longer you have it! The hundreds of coupons available to you will usually make up the price of the $35 book in one transaction – but you will only have to pay $16.61 and the shipping is FREE too!
This book is HUGE and thick has hundreds of coupons in it for 50% off or Buy One Get One FREE coupons for the businesses in your local area!
We’ve shared this example many times before, but it is a good one to illustrate the value of this book. Our local Kroger affiliate (Smiths) shows the $5 off coupon – on top of all your other discounts and coupons! What this means is that in using 2-3 coupons between now and November 2013, you can make up the $35 cost of the book and have the rest of the hundreds of coupons to literally be savings throughout the year! And their image on the top of the page highlights the “$5 off groceries” which just tells us this is available in many, if not all of their books!
Plus, not only does the book provide awesome coupons to help you save off a purchase you’re already making, but they also offer great FREEBIES even without purchase! Notice just a few of the great freebies below, on national brands as well, that don’t require a purchase. If you’re out and about, this can be a nice way to either get a FREE snack or help compliment a small snack or meal!
Again, they normally sell for $35 plus shipping, but they are having a New Year’s 2013 special that drops the price to $20.13 each with free shipping for the first and only $15 for the second! If you get two books, it would be $35.13 total or $17.56 each shipped! It is essentially 50% off two books!
But even better is that you can save another 17.5% on this deal by taking one extra step!
We would recommend doing this one as it means your cash back on your Entertainment Book purchase through Ebates. This is $3.52 per book back or $6.15 total cash back on two books!
And you if you are a registered new member, you can also pick a $10 Target, Macy’s, Walmart or Kohls gift card when you buy two or more (which that $10 gift card can also make for a nice gift too! So if you got two books, you will get them for $17.56 each AND a $10 gift card, which is like making them $9.49 each!!
