It was announced yesterday that the Entertainment Book company filed for bankruptcy and had to layoff over 500 employees.  While this is surprising, please don’t panic.  If you have a 2013 book, or even if you buy a 2013 book in a local store in the future, the coupons are all still good.  These are not like grocery coupons, which are reimbursed after use.  These coupons are really an advertisement paid for by the store that issues them.

They paid Entertainment Book to be listed in the book, but all the coupons that are redeemed are just taken off the top of a purchase at the time they are used.

Some are saying that orders will be canceled etc. on books ordered online, really most of that is speculation.  Remember filing for bankruptcy doesn’t always end a business, and they may use this to regroup and decrease costs to be more a profitable company.

For now though, go and enjoy the coupons you’ve already got!



      wouldn’t miss them IF they did disappear

      How sad! I hope they can get things pulled together!

      This is very sad to see… Even though we were competitors, you never
      want to see this happen to the great people that worked for that
      organization. Best of luck to all of you.

        Savearound was their competitor. They are still open for business and their books only sell for $20.00. Check them out at http://www.savearound.com

      WHY IM NOT SURPRISE! I bought this book last year and went so happy to McDonald to use a coupon just find out that i couldn’t use it. when i called entertainment to complain about it, they just told me that it wasn’t their fault and there was nothing they can do about it, is up to McDonald to accept it or not…they were so rude with me and i promise to myself never ever buy this garbage again.. if i buy this book is because i going to use it or what is the purpose of getting it….so im so glad they are going bad that tells me i wasn’t the only one with this problem!!!

      maybe if the books were a little cheaper to buy . . .

      I bought a book last year and rarely used any of the coupons. Most of them were for places I never go.

      Not that Entertainment filed for Chapter 7 and NOT Chapter 11. Chapter 11 means reorganization and Chapter 7 means liquidation. The company is liquidating and will no longer be operating. As for the coupons, I hope merchants continue to honour them!

      I had ordered 2 books on March 8th, 1 for vegas and 1 for san antonio, and yet they never came in. WTF!?
