If I lived in the United States I would be the ideal candidate for the reality show Extreme Couponing. For real! There is nothing quite like getting a great deal. Enter the Entertainer in my life. After a struggle two years ago my inner coupon queen won the argument and I have been an avid user of the entertainer system ever since.
So what is it?
It’s real simple, specific to Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Pretoria, it is a booklet (or App) full of great 2 for 1 specials. It really couldn’t be easier. No calculations or guessing games, when you buy one you get one free. Valid any day of the week, any time. I found this really refreshing as similar deals normally come with all sorts of restrictions on time and day, taking the fun out of the whole experience.
Not limited to restaurants alone there are also vouchers for Attractions, Health and Beauty and Hotels. So why not go have that manicure or stay that extra night in luxury? And not forgetting everyday life there are Entertainer Vouchers for repairs on car dings, dog grooming and gym memberships to name a few.
Ok, and how does it work?
Essentially you will receive three vouchers per participating partner. How you use these are up to you. You could either (for example) dine out three times with a guest or have six of you go out for one night. When it comes time to pay simply present the voucher and your bill will be amended.
Now here is the clincher – This is now third year using the Entertainer and I have not once had a bad experience. Every participating store has been super jacked up and I have never had to explain or struggler. This is the reason why I will keep going back.
With a maximum possible saving of R1.5 million, research has shown that the average consumer saves up to R3800 per year. To be fair you will need to consciously use these vouchers to receive maximum savings. However, from my experience I have found that after three meals I have made my money back and more.
I think one of the best things that has come out of the Entertainer for me is that I have got to explore and discover places in Cape Town that I never knew existed! From brewery tastings, sailing trips, running tours and chocolate tasting the possibilities are endless. And for those of you who are a bit more outgoing why not try some pole dancing classes. Even though it is limited to participating partners I really did not find this a problem at all as there is so much variety. Available for purchase from Cellucity I highly recommend this product whether it be for yourself or as a gift. Trust me, this is the real deal, and the deals work!
