Entertainment Coupon App
Membership in the Entertainment Coupon program provides access to hundreds of discounted deals at a wide range of Vancouver-area businesses. The app has coupons for restaurants, attractions and other things. Many of the coupons are good for 2-for-1 deals. Others offer discounts worth other amounts.
You can download the app onto your smartphone and use it with cellular data or Wi-Fi. It tracks your location and sends notifications when there are available coupons near you when you’re out and about. You can also search for coupons by type and location.

Attraction and Special Activity Coupons
In addition to restaurant deals, the Entertainment Coupon App is full of special offers at Lower Mainland tourist attractions and places of interest.
When we checked in early 2023, there were coupons for the BC Sports Hall of Fame, Vancouver Police Museum, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden, H.R. MacMillan Space Centre and Vancouver Maritime Museum. There were also coupons for False Creek Ferries, Vancouver Water Adventures, Forbidden Vancouver Walking Tours, Extreme Air Trampoline Park, Westwood Plateau Golf, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, Vancouver Whale Watching and so much more!
In addition to restaurant and attraction discounts, you’ll also find deals at retail stores on the Entertainment Coupon App. When we checked there were coupons at select locations of Sherwin Williams (paint stores), Pharmasave, Claire’s, and Ardene. There were also coupons for services at the Glass Doctor, Big O Tires, Mister Transmission and a variety of other places.

How Much Does the App Cost?
The app costs just $2.99 (USD) a month, or $24.99 (USD) per year. Yes, that’s right, the price is in US dollars because Entertainment is an American-based company. In Canadian dollars it works out to about $4 a month, or $35 for the year, plus or minus depending on the exchange rate. That’s a really good deal! For comparison, the physical book years ago used to cost about $50. If you average just one coupon per month, you can easily save as much as $250!
Also good to know, if you just want to try the membership out, you can use the app for your first month for free!

Even Better Than The Book!
There are many similarities between the old book and the modern-day app. They both provide amazing deals, and many of the coupons in the book are now available on the app, plus a whole lot more when you consider that the app has coupons for places all across North America, not just in the Lower Mainland.
The book was obviously paper and you needed to plan where you were going ahead of time so you remembered the specific coupons you’d want. Or you simply had to carry the book everywhere you went. The app, on the other hand, lets you be more spontaneous as it tracks your location and gives you access to special deals for specific stores near you.
The app also has a “savings tracker” where it keeps track of the amount of money you save through the coupons. It was possible to manually keep track of the amount you saved using the paper coupons, but it was way more work than the app automatically doing it for you. The savings add up quickly!
The book had coupons for hundreds of places around Vancouver, and once you used one, it was gone. The app’s coupons change from time to time and, in many cases, coupons for a retail chain are available to be used at more than one location. App coupons can also be used at thousands of places across both Canada and the United States.
