Entertainment.com is offering a flash sale that looks pretty good: 2018 Entertainment Books for $10. You can get 40% cash back through a shopping portal, bringing your net cost down to just $6 per book with free shipping. In addition to coupons for local restaurants and things to do, these guides have discounts with hotel chains, rental cars, and cruises – which could definitely mitigate the $6 cost of the book.

While I’ve often bought and misplaced books like this or just forgotten to use the coupons in the past, I still bought one for my area this time around. There were a couple of reasons: first, I saw a few restaurants we go to now and then and I figured I could take those specific coupons and put them in my wallet for the next time I’m there and save more than $6. As noted, portals are offering 20-40% cash back, with the top offer currently from Giving Assistant according to Cashback Monitor.com.
But there were also some other useful discounts in the mix. For example, we posted a Quick Deal yesterday about the new Wyndham Rewards promotion (See: Stay twice (cheaply), get a free night anywhere with Wyndham Rewards) I said I would likely mattress run that promo since it’s a cheap way to get a more expensive night somewhere valuable. The Entertainment book (and therefore the desktop and mobile app versions, which are also included with a book purchase) feature a 20% off coupon good for Wyndham Hotels. I’m not positive that using this coupon will constitute a qualifying stay, but as you’re still booking through Wyndham, I imagine it should stack.
You must book through the Entertainment.com or Entertainment.com app links in order to get that discount. Note that I did see differences in availability between the mobile and desktop versions (with greater availability through the mobile link). There were also coupon codes good for a number of other chains as well as independent hotel offers.
Additionally, there is a partnership to save 5% on certain gift cards through GiftCardMall.com.
It looks like you first buy a “voucher” from GiftCardMall (for 5% off) and then redeem that “voucher” for gift cards. For example, you can buy a $100 voucher for $95 and then trade your $100 voucher for select gift cards. I haven’t yet tried the process, so I’m not positive whether or not you actually need an Entertainment book membership to do this. Here’s the link to the landing page.
There were also some car rental coupons and a ton of cruise deals. I have no idea if any of these cruise coupons are actually a good value, but we’ve seen some Amex Offers on cruises over the past couple of years. If you’re able to stack an Amex Offer with one of these, maybe it would come in handy (though I don’t think there are any cruise offers in our database of Current Amex Offers, which we constantly keep up-to-date with the latest offers we find)..
For six bucks, I was in for one for me and one for a gift. At the very least, there were Subway subs coupons valid all over the place, and I know we’ll grab Subway enough times in 2018 to save more than six bucks. If I can take advantage of another couple of discounts over the course of the year, I’ll be well ahead.
