Discount Deals in Dubai
However, deals are a plenty in Dubai and there are many ways of making your Dirham go that little bit further so we asked our readers what their favourite discount sites, voucher books & discount cards were.
If your New Years resolution for 2015 was to save, start by downloading some of these apps or filling your wallet with these discount cards.
This comes in the form of a voucher book or app and gives you thousands “buy one get one free” offers. The Entertainer has been such a hit with Dubai residents that they now have a selection of books to choose from including:
Entertainer Dubai AED 425 (book) AED 395 (app)
Entertainer Dubai Fine Dining AED 395 (book) AED 345
Entertainer Dubai Kids AED 225 (book) AED 195 (app)
The main book Entertainer Dubai is fantastic to have if you have kids or lots of visitors as it has vouchers for the popular attractions such as Wild Wadi and Ski Dubai plus many family friendly restaurants. If you are a couple and love dining out then consider the Fine Dining book. I also would highly recommend downloading the app instead of buying the book as you always have the app on you and the book is sometimes a bit bulky to carry around.
