Spend and Save with The Entertainer

Spend and Save with The Entertainer

The Entertainer book

To be able to spend and save at the same time is an oxymoron, but it is true with The Entertainer – a coupon book packed full of 1-for-1 deals and other offers with little or no catch at all. The book is packed with up to S$70,000 worth of savings in coupons and these are valid for use in an entire year.

The Entertainer Singapore retails at S$95 per copy and can be ordered online with free delivery via the official website of The Entertainer.

This concept is relatively new in Singapore and I was apprehensive at first when their PR approached me to try out the book. It catches on quickly after I got the hang of it though.

I have been using coupons from the book for almost a month now and have been spending and saving quite a fair bit, particularly for dining.

In fact, I tore out a stack of coupons and carry them with me daily, not wanting to miss out any opportunity to enjoy a great deal!

Here is a summary of some of my recorded expenses:

Venue Pax Bill (S$) Saving (S$) Coupon Used
Lunch at The Marmalade Pantry @ Stables 4 pax 61.2 61.2 2 x 1-for-1 main course
Dinner at Canopy 4 pax 100.05 100.05 2 x 1-for-1 main course
Dinner at The Tasting Room 2 pax 25.8 25.8 1 x 1-for-1 main course
Dinner at Pizzeria L’Operetta 2 pax 30.6 30.6 1 x 1-for-1 main course
Dinner at Spruce 4 pax 68.27 68.27 2 x 1-for-1 main course
Snack at Saybons 2 pax 3.9 3.9 1 x 1-for-1 main course
Lunch at Old Hong Kong Kitchen 2 pax 32.8 5.5 1 x 1-for-1 main course
Lunch at Old Hong Kong Teahouse 2 pax 24 24 1 x 1-for-1 main course
S$346.62 S$258.12

I spent a total of S$346.62 dining, but at the same time, saved S$258.12!

The amount I saved in a month is already more than twice the price of the book! I feel good sharing the coupon with my parents and my friends, letting them enjoy the deals when we dine together.

Here are some tips I have on using the coupons and getting the best deals out of The Entertainer:

– Buy the book early in the year. The earlier you buy, the longer you can use the coupons as each edition is published and renewed with new coupons annually.

– Call to make reservation as well as check that the restaurant/shop honours the coupon before heading now as not all service staff may be familiar with The Entertainer.

– For the 1-f0r-1 dining deals, the lower cost item is free. Hence go for items that are closely priced to get the best deal.

– Be careful when using two or more dining coupons. The cheapest items are the free ones. For instance, if you and your wife are visiting a restaurant with your friend and his wife, using two coupons, you may mistakenly assume that the cheaper item you or your wife ordered is free. This is incorrect. If the the items that your friend and his wife ordered are cheaper, those two will be free and your friend will end up paying more for your share.

That’s it! There is no hidden catch at all.

If you are comfortable with the above and will like to start defraying some of  your dining, travel and lifestyle expenses. Do visit The Entertainer’s official website to learn more or even purchase the book directly.
