Save Money at Restaurants – Online Coupon Books As Seen On Good Morning America – Rewards – Rebates – Internet Dining Savings

Save Money at Restaurants – Online Coupon Books As Seen On Good Morning America – Rewards – Rebates – Internet Dining Savings

Entertainment Book

Saving money can give a person a great feeling.  The Internet has made saving money much easier by reducing the amount spent by the customer and by giving the business the opportunity to sell more products.  If you don’t go to their restaurant or business, you will be going somewhere else; so why not offer a coupon?  The ABC News program Good Morning America has been running a $100 A Day in May series that highlights this opportunity. 

Special correspondent, Stephanie Nelson, mentioned a few methods of saving money using online sources.  First she mentioned the Entertainment Book that is packed full of coupons.  They usually sell for $30 and include hundreds of pages of offers.  The book will cost less money off season.  We just checked and right now the company is offering the book for just $7.99 online, plus one dollar shipping. 

 

The book will include discounts from 10% to 40% and even some two-for-one offers.  Typically people will use the book for their two-for-one savings on restaurants.  At just $8.00 it does not take long for the book to pay for itself.  The book also offers savings on health clubs, car rentals, theme parks and more.  The company also offers more replacement coupons online for registered book purchasers.

Stephanie recommends buyers of the book to keep the book in their car.  The number one reason people don’t use coupons is because the coupon is unavailable when they are out and about. 

 

For those that do not want to use coupons or may be embarrassed, Stephanie mentioned another program called Rewards Network. Because the cost of annual membership is $49 this program may only be good for those that eat-out or travel frequently. 

All you need to do is register your credit card with the Rewards Network.  This method will give you a cash rebate into your account every time you use that credit card at a participating client.  Your rebates are automatically applied to your credit card.  You may even receive a unexpected rebates when you use the card for a product or service where you were unaware a rebate was available. 

 

Some sites will offer a discount if you make a reservation online.  Stephanie mentioned that Dinner Broker has restaurants listed by geographic location.  You can shop for a restaurant online by just entering the number in your party, the date and time and you will be given a series of choices.

Another similar service is Open Table. Stephanie says you can also earn points using these services towards gift certificates and other discounts.  You may even get a gift certificate by referring a friend. 

Stephanie mentioned Restaurant.com that offers discounts for gift certificates.  For instance, she said that you may be able to purchase a $25 gift certificate for $10. With a coupon you may be able to get the certificate for just $5.  We checked, and amazingly those discounts are available.

There may be ways you can combine offers as well.  For instance, if you use a coupon from the Entertainment Book you may also be able to get the discount on the Rewards Network.  In these times of inflation, it is always good to save money.  Save Money on Groceries with Coupons
