Entertainment Coupon Book in Vancouver

The Entertainment Coupon Program is a membership program that features hundreds of 2-for-1 coupons at Vancouver stores, restaurants and tourist attractions.

Although the physical books no longer exist (as of 2022), the online version does in the form of an app that you can use on your phone.

Many of the coupons are of the buy-one-get-one-free kind, which makes them very valuable! Some also offer percentage discounts and other types of deals. The coupons also aren’t just for Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. They can be used at thousands of places all across North America!

In this article we have information about how the program works as well as examples of some of the deals you’ll find at places around the Lower Mainland.

Tourist Attractions Coupons

Some of the Lower Mainland’s most popular tourist attractions accept Entertainment coupons. Examples include the following galleries, museums and gardens which used to be in the book and are now, as of when we checked in January of 2023, also on the mobile app.

 

Vancouver Galleries, Museums & Gardens

  • BC Sports Hall of Fame – a sports museum located at BC Place Stadium.
  • Vancouver Police Museum – a museum about crime, criminals and the city’s policing history. (Note: The discount here is just 20% off, as opposed to the more common 2-for-1 deal offered by most places.)
  • Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden – an Oriental garden in Vancouver`s Chinatown.
  • H.R. MacMillan Space Centre – the science museum about space with a planetarium in Vanier Park.
  • Vancouver Maritime Museum – a family-friendly museum about boats and the history of the Pacific Northwest and Arctic.
  • False Creek Ferries – mini harbour ferries that run up and down the waters of False Creek, from Science World to Granville Island and beyond.

Other attractions in the coupon app as of the last time we checked include the Stanley Park Horse-Drawn Tours, Forbidden Vancouver Walking Tours, Cycle City, Vancouver Water Adventures and others. You used to also be able to use coupons at the Museum of Anthropology. That venue is closed for most of 2023, however, due to structural upgrades.

Coupon Terms and Conditions

Entertainment coupons are both valuable and flexible. You can use them most days of the year and for a wide range of products at hundreds of venues. Some restrictions, however, do apply. Coupons aren’t valid on certain dates, for example, and items already on sale are usually excluded.

Other typical days of the year when Entertainment coupons aren’t valid include the following:

Other special occasions are also excluded sometimes depending on the merchant. For example, a Mexican restaurant might exclude May 5th because it’s Cinco de Mayo, and other places might exclude an entire holiday weekend as opposed to just the one official statutory holiday.

 


Note: If restaurants always gave things away at half price on their busiest days of the year they wouldn’t stay in business for very long. The same applies to tourist attractions. The point of the coupons is to encourage people to visit on regular “non-special” days, which makes total sense.


 

Coupon Tips and Advice

Below are some tips and suggestions to help you make the most out of your Entertainment coupons.

TIP #1: To make sure a specific coupon is valid on a given day and for what you want, we recommend you ask before placing your order in each situation. And if it isn’t valid on a given date, don’t fret! Be gracious and go back on a different day or go somewhere else.

TIP #2: When you plan to be in a different part of town for something, we suggest you look through the coupon app in advance to see what restaurants and attractions are in the area. You can look for coupons via the app on your phone or via your computer.

TIP #3: Don’t forget that there are coupons on the app for all over North America. When you are in Vancouver you’ll find coupons for places in the Lower Mainland. If you go to Victoria, you’ll find coupons then for places in that community. And if you travel to Toronto or New York, you’ll find lots of coupons on your phone that you can use there too!

 

About the Vancouver Entertainment Books

The final edition of the physical coupon books was in 2021. Today, the app contains many of the same coupons, plus a whole lot more! Whereas the physical book cost around $50 (US), today the app costs just $2.99 a month.

Hard copies of the Vancouver and Vancouver Island Area edition of Entertainment Books were filled with coupons, including hundreds of 2-for-1 deals for restaurants and attractions in the Lower Mainland. In the books there were coupons for venues in Abbotsford, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Langley, Maple Ridge, the North Shore, New Westminster, Richmond, Surrey, Vancouver and everywhere in between.

Starting in 2019, the books also included dozens of coupons for places in Duncan, Nanaimo, Victoria and other parts of Vancouver Island too. Previously, Vancouver Island had its own separate book. In the 2019 and 2022 editions, however, you got coupons for both regions – the Island and Lower Mainland – for the price of one.

The 2021 book’s full retail price online was about $50 (US). It could usually be purchased through a school or non-profit’s fundraising activities in the early fall for $50 or so (CAD), and online for a discount later in the following year.
