I had seen them around town for about $25. I wasn’t interested at that price.
But when I saw on the web site that it was available for $15 with free shipping, and I could get additional online printable savings, I wanted to learn more.
I wasn’t going to buy one if it didn’t look like I could easily get my money back by using those coupons to save money on something I would normally buy.
I found coupons for restaurants we wanted to visit and museums we wanted to tour. Sold.
So, I paid $15 to save (hopefully) a lot more money.
But you know what else?
Having that coupon book might encourage us to get out and see more of the city.
We tend to be homebodies and even though we’ve lived here for six months now, we still haven’t been to a museum (they have some really cool ones here, too). We’ve been out to eat maybe five times, and just generally haven’t been tourists in this city.
With this coupon book, I might be more inspired to say, “Hey, we could do this (fun thing) for about $5. Wanna go?”
Have you purchased a coupon book for your city? What do you think about it?
