If you live in Dubai, you probably have heard of “The Entertainer”.
Well, it’s is a compilation of over 1,500 buy one get one vouchers that can be used to your favorite casual restaurants, cafes, water parks and more. Priced at AED395 (US$107) at the stores and AED356 (US$96) online, it’s a bit pricey (for me!) because I thought I wouldn’t use it much anyway. I didn’t pay much attention to it.
Come end of Ramadan in the 2nd week of August, they had a further 20% from the online price since all members of my family’s birthdays fall in the last 3 months of the year, I thought I’d buy The Entertainer Dubai book (with much hesitation still!). I paid AED284.
We took friends for a buffet dinner at AED130 per person at The Californian, Dusit Thani Hotel. We are a group of six so we used the 3 stubs (buy one get one, remember??) and saved a whooping AED390 off the bill! Just one single use and the book paid for itself! And I still have a lot of voucher stubs to our favorite restaurants! How amazing is that? Why was I so worried about buying this amazing book at the start of the year? I could’ve saved more!
