The Entertainer Dubai — how does it work?

The Entertainer Dubai 2016 is available in two versions, a voucher book and an app, depending which is more convenient for you.

The app is 50 AED cheaper, and is preferable to carrying two thick books around, plus there is an added benefit as it used location-based services (when enabled on your phone) to find offers closest to you.

Top tip — Free WiFi is available almost everywhere in Dubai, so save your money and use Wifi (not your roaming data plan!)

So, say you were at The Walk and Jumeirah Beach Residence and you fancied something to eat. You would simply open the app in your phone, search either venues near you by name or location, and the offers would be listed.

Generally for restaurants the deal would be One Main Meal item free when one is purchased, when two people are dining.

Unfortunately — and I’ve tried it — the Entertainer offers can only be redeemed for two people or more.

For example, the Butcher Shop Grill offer a fantastic seafood buffet so one person would buy the more expensive item whilst the second person could pick any Main Meal item (I recommend the meat mixed grill) and it would be free.

Redeeming the offers is easy, either hand over the voucher (from the book) or show the waiter your app. He will ask you to redeem, you click the icon in the app, enter your pin code and it will generate a code he will take note of.

That’s it — you’ve just saved over 200 AED, and had an amazing meal also!
