It might not look like it when you read my blog, but I’m a cheap skate. There I said it.
Yes, I love nice things and experiences but I’m that girl who’s always asking for a discount (if you don’t ask you won’t get!) and trying to think of creative ways to afford the stuff I
I’d seen the Entertainer launch in Cape Town a few months back & remember feeling a bit jealous, so when their team reached out to me about being on the Joburg committee, it was a resounding YES!
Who are they?
The Entertainer is a Dubai based incentives company that launched in SA in January this year, in Cape Town as mentioned. They operate in the middle East, Europe, Asia, Mauritius & the Seychelles (ok so they’re pretty much everywhere!). They launched in the Cape with a booklet of 450 buy-one-get-one-free offers covering fine dining, accommodation, spa treatments & leisure & entertainment. The cost of the booklet was R450 and in total, it offered R 120 000’s worth of savings – you read right, there’s no extra zero in there!
So based on that massive success, they’re now in Jozi, but are doing things a little differently:
- They launched here on the 1st of October with free trial app with a couple of deals loaded for you to try out
- The app is available for free download across all app stores (including iTunes, Blackberry and Google Play
- On 1 November they’ll be adding a couple of more new deals (so do check back) to the app
- On 1 December (just in time for the holidays to save you some cash) they will launch the full app as well as the booklets (the 2 are identical in terms of offers, it just comes down to a personal preference).
Here’s how you get started (I’m using a Samsung Galaxy S4):
1. Search “the Entertainer” in your app store & download/install the app
2. Choose your city
3. Create a 4 digit PIN so that no else can access your deals
4. The deals available in Jozi will appear listed
5. Select your restaurant/vendor of choice from the list to see what their offer is about
6. If you want to go ahead and redeem, enter your PIN
7. Make sure you read the T&C’s
8. Once you start redeeming offers, it tallies up your savings so you can brag a bit!
Pretty easy right?!
As mentioned the trial app is available for free on all platforms and will be refreshed with more offers on the 1st of November so do check back.
I’m probably going to be exhausting all of these offers in no time so I’ll keep you posted on how it goes!
