Entertainment Books are perpetually on sale, but there’s a new discount that makes them the cheapest I’ve ever seen.
- Buy a 2018 Entertainment Book for $3.99 when joining their annual renewal program (see more about this below).
- Direct link (but see below about cashback).
- Expires May 20, 2018.
- Offer limited to five books per order.
Even though we’re almost halfway through the year, $3.99 is still excellent value for Entertainment Books. You can lower the cost even further by going through a cashback portal for up to 20% back, making the net cost $3.20. The $3.99 promotion doesn’t appear on the homepage, so click through from a cashback portal, then copy and paste the direct link above – your cashback should still track.
I used to buy the Hampton Roads VA Entertainment Book every year and got some great value from it. It was a great way to save money on places we’d be visiting / eating at anyway, plus it encouraged us to try a few new places. At $3.20 per book, using even one coupon should more than make up for the cost of the book.
In case you’re not sure how Entertainment Books work, they’re like a giant book of Groupons. Each book has hundreds of coupons for your area – some offer discounts at restaurants, others offer Buy One Get One Free tickets for local attractions, etc.
With a net cost of $3.20, it could even make sense to buy a book for a US city where you’ll be going on vacation. Just be aware that it can sometimes take a couple of weeks to receive the book, so you might not receive it in time if you’re planning last minute travel. You do get access to online coupons though, so you should still be able to take advantage of most of the deals even if your book doesn’t arrive in time.
One thing to bear in mind is that this promotion will enroll you in their annual renewal program. However, Entertainment.com will email you about a month before renewal and offer you the chance to cancel. Cancelling will most likely be worthwhile as you pay a higher price with annual renewal (albeit with a $5 discount) and forgo the chance to earn cashback. I think new books are issued towards the end of the year which means the email would likely be sent in October or November, so keep an eye out for that.
Edit: Frank’s pointed out in the comments below that if you cancel your annual renewal before receiving the 2019 book, you’ll be charged $5. That makes the net cost $8.20 which obviously isn’t as good as $3.20, but could still be worthwhile.
