Ocean City Coupon Book
What's the deal? This family coupon book offers discounts for more than 100 retailers, restaurants and attractions in Ocean City. Included in the book are coupons for chain restaurants like Domino's Pizza (free large cheese pizza with purchase of another large pizza at regular price) as well as local eateries such as Ocean View Grill and BBQ (free pound of shrimp when you buy two adult entrees with drinks). There are also deals for activities such as miniature golf and biking.
What are the savings? The $10 coupon book — 100 coupons — is valued at about $1,500, according to the website. One of the deals it offers is at Crabcake Factory USA and calls for two free frozen or hand-squeezed beverages with the purchase of two jumbo lump crab cake dinners. The specialty drinks are valued at $6.25 each — more if liquor is included. But to get the deal, you'll need to spend $62, the price of the crab cake dinner for two. Still, with 100 coupons to choose from, buyers will likely save more than the cost of the book.
What's the catch? Nothing, really, except using the coupons takes some planning since you have to remember to keep the book handy. Because it's pocket-size, the book could be easy to lose in a beach tote.
