    In your opinion is the Entertainment coupon book worth it's cost?
    I was reading on the mousesavers.com about the book and wondered if anyone has bought and used this book in the Orlando area. This book is also supposed to have coupons for rental cars. The books are 15% off with free shipping, so the cost would be $29.75.

    What do you think?

    I've done quite a bit of research on this one. No doubt these books have some great coupons! However, many of them you can find elsewhere online.

    The great thing about the book though is convenience. All the coupons are in one place, and you don't have to go through the trouble of searching for and printing them.

    If you buy through Fat wallet, you'll get 7.5% back. ;)

    Unfortunately, you can only use most of the Orlando coupons in Orlando. If you get the book for your home area, you can use the coupons all year long, and use some of the common ones (airfare, car rental, etc) for your trip. Most of the local coupons you can get online with a little research, so your big ticket items are in the book, and all local items available online. Unless you are really going crazy traveling all over Orlando to get a few deals, I don't think the Orlando book is worth the cost (just my opinion, your mileage may vary!!!)

    We bought the 2012 book in July for our august trip, for only $6. There were some good coupons that I thought we would use. We ended up not using any of the coupons. It just didn't work out. There are some national coupons that we may be able to use before they expire. I am glad we only paid $6. I would not pay $30 for it.
