Is Entertainment book sold in stores?

Anyone know of any "brick and mortar" stores which sell the Entertainment books? I want to leaf through and see if this year's edition has certain discounts before I buy the book.

I recalled my local bank, University Federal Credit Union, used to sell it and the members could go and buy them. I am not sure about 2005 version. If you have UFCU nearby, you may want to check it out.

My credit union sells it, so I'm guessing most do. You can walk in and look at it--and buy it--without being a member.

Our local Borders Bookstore carries the Entertainment book.

My local (large chain) supermarket sells it.

Have you checked the website? I believe it lists the discounts included in your area's book.

This is a fact. While I'm not sure if the web site lists ALL of the stuff in the book, there's enough there (especially on the restaurant side) to make a decision. I used the online information to decide on purchasing a couple of out-of-town books as Christmas gifts.

I am interested in any skiing discounts, and for some reason clicking on the skiing link sends me back to the main page of Entertainment.com . So it either means that they don't have anything in that category, or that the site is acting out. I will stop by Borders today.


Also, could anyone who has the DC or PA book see if this year's edition has any discounts for Ski Liberti or Whitetail ski resorts? Any skiing discounts at all?

I have the Northern Virginia / DC book. I got it at Barnes & Noble. I have also seen the books for sale at CVS and Safeway.

The skiing discounts in my book are for Canaan Valley and Timberline.

I've seen it at Costco (not sure of the scope of Costco U.S. locations). Noted that it was not any cheaper there. Agreed, generally the web site provides a very complete source for what's in a book.

I see it in the stores attached to hospitals and in other places that have a charity component.

Barnes and Noble here in Florida carries it behind the cashier counter, but go with the bonus points out there, or at least check with local charities so they can get the benefits.

In another thread, I was told that I could receive 950 E-Bay anything points for each purchase.

Of course, I have yet to see those points, but I am still hopeful.

In addition, I think that if you were to go thru E-Rewards, you can earn $5 in rewards for each book purchased.

Good luck!

Barnes and Nobles in New York also carries it. You can sit at the cafe and leaf though it over a cappuccino.

Mypoints, also offers 750 points for each book purchased.
