I'll let you all in on an amazing secret right now...
For those of you in North America, maybe you've heard of the Entertainment Book. It's a book with some amazing coupon deals (there's different books for different cities). The price of the book starts out at $50, and every once in a while, they have sales.
This makes for a PERFECT gift for parents, or pretty much everyone!
Can't go wrong with this!
Here is how to get in on this amazing deal... (no there is no catch, try it yourself)!
1. Sign up for EBates here: http://www.ebates.com/rf.do?referrerid=IhEYf3oSLYUjJdBAGniNfw%3D%3D
2. When you are on the site, search for "Entertainment.com Coupons & Cash Back", and when you find the 35% cash back, click on "Shop Now".
3. This will open a new page in the entertainment.com site. This is the part where you have to follow very carefully!
Right now, the entertainment.com site will not show the current $19.99 deal, but prices that are at around $35. To change the deal, this is what you need to do: Right now, the URL should look like:
http://www.entertainment.com/discount/?LinkName=EBATES&affiliateID=12345678|12345&orcu stom=ebs252149147sbe&AID=12345678&PID=12345&SID=eb s252149147sbe&afsrc=1
If this is not the URL displayed, you will probably need to clear your cookies and try again.
Without doing anything else, change the part EBATES to DM_DEC10_C1
The EBATES part might be different, but change it nontheless to DM_DEC_C1
Hit Enter in the URL box.
Now the site should display the $19.99 deal, WITH the EBATES cashback offer still intact!
Search for your city in the text box, and purchase your Entertainment Book for $19.99!
With the $5 signup bonus from EBates, and the 35% cash back ($7 from $19.99), this makes the book effectively $20-$12 = $8!
I bought one myself 2 days ago, and I received my cash back amount in my account today. To prove it to you guys, here is a screenshot:
This is not just a perfect gift, but maybe even you can use one =). Just using ONE coupon in the book will already make up for the cost of the book! I used it for the zoo, the aquarium, and tons of restaurants last year, and saved probably over $200.
I don't know how long this deal will last, both the cash back offer OR the $19.99 offer... and to be able to combine it together right now makes for an amazing deal! This is one good gift for just about anyone (who spends money I guess).
Thanks for reading!
UPDATE: No need to change the URL now, EBates redirects to the $19.99 deal at the Entertainment Book site directly now!
