When I first heard about The Entertainer, I was dubious – another ‘buy one get one free’ entertainment scheme in the already overcrowded rewards & discount arena. I then downloaded the free trial version of the app which is valid for 14 days and was pleasantly surprised at how many local eateries, venues and businesses were offering deals on them – places I would actually like to go!
So I looked into it a bit further. The Entertainer is an established company which launched in Dubai in 2001 as a booklet of entertainment deals. It is now the leading provider of buy one get one free incentives across the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe, through their booklets and award winning mobile app. They have signed up a huge variety of quality partners and are able to offer subscribers access to thousands of discounts, from accommodation and dining out, to salon treatments and tourist attractions.
HOW DOES IT WORK:
First you download the app for free here.
Then you can browse & redeem the free offers which are available in your country and city as well as other countries and cities that you plan on visiting – this is all for free for 14 days.
After 14 days you need to purchase a subscription to continue browsing offers and to unlock those that are only available to subscribers – subscriptions cost R345 for the mobile app and they unlock deals valued at up to R800 000 over the course of a year.
WHAT’S ON OFFER IN DURBAN:
I did a quick browse and the following are offers I would definitely be keen on:
Fairmont Zimbali Lodge or Resort – buy one get one free – 1 night accommodation
Blow Hair Bar – buy one get one free – infusion treatment & blow wave
La Belle Vie Skin & Body professionals – buy one get one free – full body massage or facial
Barbacoa Restaurant – buy one get one free – main course meal
Bella & Boo – buy one get one free – frozen yogurt
Bike & Bean – buy one get on free – coffee & muffin
Butcher Boys Restaurant – buy one get one free – main course meal
and there are many more offers on the app…
