and you can preview them at Costco, Walgreens, etc. to see if it is worth the $19.99 flat. The ABQ book is not!

I remember my parents buying these when I was a young lad. I wonder if there is much of value in the books anymore.
Buy one entree get the second one free is the basic benefit for local restaurants and it is not a bad deal. There are also coupons for dry cleaning, plumbing, 50% off hotels rack rate, etc. When we went to Vancouver BC, we bought its book and enjoyed the city's best restaurants at almost half off.
I like Entertainment online better as you can use it in any city. All you have to do is log on and print out the coupons.

only with auto-renewal
Auto renewal is $35 but you will get $5 off making it $30 for 2014 book. But the 2013 book would be $10.50 so the total for the two books $40.50 or $ 20.25 per book, and, hence, very close (26 cents) to this thread's title "Entertainment Book for $19.99"
All 2013 Entertainment Books now just 18.99 and free shipping! Plus you can add another book for just $15! http://bit.ly/UVLWT2
This week only: all 2013 Entertainment Coupon Books now just 20.13 with free shipping!
Buying 2 different books in 2 different geographic areas in the U.S., the number of restaurants that return year after year is dwindling, often replaced with new ones.
Some markets it makes sense to buy one, in others, it will be hard for me to justify buying their next book if they don't re-attract some of the good restaurants that formerly appeared.
I realize restaurants are in business to make money, but when I have an Entertainment coupon, I'll usually splurge more on high-profit extras such as desserts, booze, or appetizers since I have saved some money.
I am guessing a big problem with good offers in the Entertainment Book would be the internet. With so many deal of the day sites and other coupon sites, I'd assume it takes away from businesses wanting to be in their book? Maybe I'm wrong and the book has been going downhill for a greater amount of time?
No doubt the deal sites like Groupon, LivingSocial, etc. have taken market share away from the Entertainment Book, and yes, many of the restaurants that used to be in the Entertainment Book have gone elsewhere.
On a separate note, the Entertainment Book now has a formidable offline, book-like competitor, "Enjoy The City" which has attracted some, IMHO, better restaurants in certain markets than what exist in the Entertainment Book.
However, since the Entertainment Book now has coupons redeemable for airfare on AA.com, the book is still attractive to me as using that discount alone for 2 passengers is now usually a break even on recouping the purchase price on the book, and even if there's just one deal I use from the Entertainment Book, then I'm money ahead.
FYI. You can also get a free trial membership that lets you print off coupons. Saved me $10 over the weekend.
thanks for the free trial membership tips
great tip. Didn't know something like this existed
Thanks for the tips

45% eBates for Cyber Monday
eBates says 17.5% rebate ... can you tell us how to get to 45%?
The eBates deal for 45% rebate was yesterday, Cyber Monday. I can confirm that DealsRock was correct. It was available when I purchased last night about 10 PM. I suspect that it ended at midnight EST.
Many Milepointers have made excellent suggestions abut the Entertainment Guides. Thanks for posting, Kalboz!
BLUF, you absolutely should look into (online if possible) which merchants offer discounts in the EG, and then decide for yourself if it's worth the expense - and also where/when to get the best buy for the purchase price of the EG.
We used to buy them every year, and also hand them out as Christmas presents. We even bought the HI book before heading to HNL for vacation! No longer, as the number of restaurants featured in the EG that we'd actually go to has decreased significantly, or else they've gone out of business.
BTW, the same holds true for the restaurants featured with extra miles dining with the airline-branded credit cards, but that's another story.
Email from eBates this AM says they are offering 35% rebate on Entertainment book purchases. Not sure how long this will last.
