When do these expire? In the past I have seen some of these books expire in November.

I bought mine in January for $30 and it has already paid for itself. I keep it in the glove box of the car so if the kids get hungry/thirsty I can usually find a fast food BOGO.

Keep in mind most coupons are BOGO so if you often eat alone it may not be of much use. Also, I have the LA book and most of the places are too far away, so if you live in a large city it might be hit or miss.

If you don't want to be pestered, this isn't the book to purchase. I have rarely had a purchase bug me so many times between my saying "Yep, I'll buy it," and "Thank you for your purchase."

It asked me if I wanted to sign in using my account (no)
If I cared to create an account (no)
If I wanted to purchase an annual subscription for the book (no)
If I really wanted to use my billing address as my shipping address (yes)
If I was really sure that I didn't want an annual subscription (yes!)

all before taking my credit card info.

After it took the info, it didn't thank me or give me an order # or anything. It asked me to create an account and sign up for 4 daily newsletters. (NO!) I tried to skip the screen, because I don't want an account and I sure don't want the newsletters. This put me in an endless loop of error messages. I'm not even sure if I bought the book or not. I hope I didn't, because these people are pains.

Make the purchase through Ebates and get 17.5% back on the purchase price. Plus, new Ebates users get a $5 credit for signing up. I use them for all my internet purchases and usually get a check for $20 to $30 every quarter.

@journeyloaded: Actually, it is worse when you live in a small town. Our book only has about 10 coupons within an hour drive, most of which I would never use. Many coupons are 2+ hour drive, and book covers 4 counties.
I encourage anyone looking to purchase this to peruse the list of coupons you will get 1st, as usability and the quality of coupons varies widely from one area to the next. The selection of coupons seems to be deteriorating since the slump in the economy.

@speedysloth: I think you need the account though because every book also gives you printable coupons for that region and you can't get to those without an account.

wow. i remember when these things were like 25 bucks. who uses these anymore? coupon cabin or one of its competitors is a whole lot easier.

I'm sold out in my area. I was really wanting to get it at this price.

@prettywootprinces: Love the description, though some failed improv dorks are able to generate some funny stuff occasionally.

@tewkewl They normally are that price, the price break now is because these coupons/this 2011 book expires 11-1-2011. It's actually much less invasive if you buy it off of someone rather than buying it online.

As to whoever mentioned the online coupons, you only need an account if you want access to those coupons, but really, with a book of this size, who needs more coupons? sign up for the account if you REALLY want them. Otherwise, the coupons that come with the book more than pay for the cost of the book.

This book will expire on 11-1. This paper business will probably expire on 11-2. This is obsolete...

WOW -- feel soooo un-loved here, that I posted this deal yesterday, and got no reaction. :(

I have tried umpteen times to check out the book for my area and each time it throws an error. Has been happening for weeks and doesn't seem to matter which link I use...ie: here, ebates or going directly to their page. I'm moving to a new area and thought it would help my husband and I find different places to go for dinner. To be honest, it will be less frustrating to just drive around till I find a place that looks nice than fight with this site to get any kind of information on the coupons that are available!
