On our last HAL cruise we received a coupon book as a “gift” from our TA. It was mostly 10-15% discounts on stuff we would not buy anyway. It was worthless, and we told her so.

The better ones have things like "buy one glass of wine and get a second glass free." or they will offer a 20% discount on a spa treatment, etc.

For the most part, they are not much of a big deal, and if you DO use a coupon make sure you get credited for it.

A better offer is if you get pre-paid gratuities or a shipboard credit.

I agree. Worthless to me.
