I’m not always the biggest fan of coupon books, because a huge chunk of them tend to be for restaurants and quite frankly my kids aren’t that good in restaurants right now, and even with a coupon we just can’t afford to eat out all that often.
(Can I get an “Amen” on any of that?)
However… Last year my 2010 Entertainment Book was dog-eared and tattered by the end of the year. I found several worthwhile coupons inside and this year’s is proving so far to be a money-maker, considering I have already surpassed in savings what I spent on the book, and more.
I waited until I thought the 2011 Entertainment Book was at its rock-bottom price, held out for free shipping, and just when I was ready to purchase it in December, I received a MyPoints email with an offer for an even better price, free shipping, and 500 points per book.
Haven’t heard of MyPoints? It’s a great rewards program, you can read in my previous post about how I earned a $50 gift card to JC Penney thanks to MyPoints. And after reading that, you may be surprised to learn I just ordered my 2nd $50 gift card, this time I chose Old Navy!
So when I received the MyPoints email with Entertainment Book offer last December, I purchased one for myself (Indianapolis edition), and another one for my parents (Ft. Myers/Naples edition). I scored 500 points for each book, just for going through MyPoints’ site to make my purchase on Entertainment Book’s website.
Now through Monday 2/14, Entertainment Book is having a special offer for Valentine’s Day on MyPoints, where you can take $14 off the price of the 2011 book plus free shipping, and a whopping 2,000 MyPoints, per book. Sign up for the FREE MyPoints rewards program here.
