The Entertainment Book is a coupon book for eating out in your area. Most of the coupons are for buy one meal get one free, or 50% one entree. Usually restaurants in the book are trying to drum up business. People usually purchase the book from kids selling them for fundraisers, online, or even Border's.
Yep I bought my book at Border's. Best part about it was that the book was $30 but I had a coupon for 30% off the list price. So I paid $21 for the book. I wonder how much I'll save? I think eating out 2x should cover the price of the book. Although I am considering using my first coupon tomorrow for a hockey game (which will save me $23.50 according to the coupon).
I do realize that by eating out and using coupons I'm spending money to save money. However I look at it this way, DH and I like to eat out. So if we're going to eat out we might as well do it using a coupon. Also it encourages us to try new places. So buying an entertainment book just makes sense.
I write monthly we spend $200-300/month eating out. And I do try to use coupons, for example the McCormick's deal. But for others out there who enjoy eating out, try buying an entertainment book.
But to be really frugal don't eat out at all :)
