Over the past few years, The Entertainer, an international buy-one-get-one-free app, has successfully launched in South Africa. The point of the app? Getting you out of your comfort zone and trying new restaurants, spas, entertainment venues and even hotels at a discounted rate. In fact, their motto is simple. You buy one and you get one absolutely free! The app has been successful for tons of businesses who write the cost off as a marketing promotion which introduces a variety of people to their business. 2018 is around the corner at the folks at The Entertainer have been working tirelessly to make sure the 2018 version of the app is bigger and better than ever before.

The range is simple and includes Cape Town, Cheers Cape Town, Johannesburg & Pretoria, Cheers Johannesburg & Pretoria, Durban and Cheers Durban. Also included in the line-up is More Africa, which includes ‘Buy One Night Get One Free’ offers at over 200 establishments across SA and beyond, as well as offers for a range of bucket-list-worthy activities and restaurants. With over 6 500 offers for restaurants, bars, attractions, leisure activities, hotels, spas, salons, gyms, fitness studios, retail, everyday services and much more – this year’s products deliver over R5.42 million in savings for customers throughout South Africa.

I was introduced to The Entertainer two years ago by my friend Stephanie Be and it’s been a great way to both save money and explore retailers I never knew existed. Over the past year, I frequently visited Piza E Vino, Ciro Umberto, Hands On Retreat Spa, Adventure Golf, Orient, The Raj, Haagen-Dazs, Nonna’s Italian, Bounce, Kong and The Johannesburg Zoo this year and it’s made me a loyal customer to the brand – even when I used up my vouchers. That’s the power of The Entertainer and why brand have been flocking to be apart of the experience.

This year, however, The Entertainer has unveiled some significant enhancements to its offerings. There are 30% more merchants on the app in 2018 than in 2017 proving how dedicated the team is to make the user experience fun, exciting and fulfilling. They also launch a fashion and retail department and everyday services ensuring more deals for their consumers.

One of the biggest changes this year is the introduction of ENTERTAINER getaways – an in-app hotel booking engine with unbeatable rates. “With ENTERTAINER getaways we’re bringing our customers a seamless way to browse a huge range of exclusive hotel room rates and book directly from the ENTERTAINER app. Our popular ‘Hotels Worldwide’ offers still provide amazing value on a ‘Buy One Night Get One Free’ basis but now there is access to even more travel deals with added flexibility and convenience,” says Donna Benton, the Founder and Chairman of the Entertainer.

Oh, and 2018 sees the product move away from their printed booklets and opting for an app-only experience. Let’s be honest though, who used the booklet anyway? The app is a more environmentally friendly way to use the product and it ensures you have all your vouchers in your pocket so it’s a win-win for everyone!

The Entertainer is now available for purchase for only R495 for the Johannesburg & Pretoria and Cape Town offerings and just R395 for the Durban offering. Make 2018 an exciting one and get your offering today!
