I typed this up on facebook for a friend and figured I'd share it here too.
Right now the 2010 Entertainment books are on sale for $20 and that includes shipping (usually $20-30). If you sign up for different cash back shopping sites you get $5 just for signing up. Then you can earn between $6 and $8 for ordering the book through that site, so you can get the book for between $7 and $9.
Last year I did Cashbaq.com to get it free, but they're not doing that good of a deal this year. Darn.
Ebates, Cashbaq, and Inbox Dollars all offer $5 sign up bonuses (I'm sure there are more out there, but those are the ones I know).
Ebates and Cashbaq are both giving $6 if you buy the book through them, so it'll be $9 (which would be paid for by using 1 or 2 coupons). You can earn $8 from Inbox Dollars, but you can't get your check from them until you've earned at least $30, so unless you plan to shop a lot with them (or click on their emails, play games, take surveys, etc.) the extra $2 wouldn't be worth it.
Ebates pays you every 3 months, as long as it's over $5.01 (if it's under that amount it'll carry over to the next quarter). You'd get your check from them mid-February. Cashbaq will send you your check once you meet $10 (which you will with this deal). Really, any of the sites are good. Check them out and see which one best fits your needs.
I'm sure there are more sites, but these are the ones I'm most familiar with. I'm already a member of Cashbaq and Inbox Dollars, so I'll probably sign up with Ebates.
I keep wondering if a better deal will come along soon, but this one is really good and the longer you wait, the less time you have to use the coupons (they expire Nov. 1, 2010). (They will continue to drop in price if you'd rather wait, but you won't have as much time to use it.)
You can go here to see if there are deals you'd use. We've been planning to go to Discovery Gateway, the South Davis Recreation Center for swimming, and Jungle Jims all this next year and each of those has a buy one get one free, so we'll for sure save $20 from those alone (I'm sure we'll use more than that).
Hope this helps someone! Let me know if you have any questions about it. Also, if you do any online shopping, be sure to check whichever site you sign up with to see if you can earn money from that purchase.

Same thing here for Inbox Dollars (hey, if you're going to sign up anyway, might as well help me out, right?).
