For our lifestyle, we have found that the books are useless. Lotus Spa junk and stuff like that. We have yet to use a single one.

We just came off the Saphire Princess and our coupon books were ok. There was a coupon for the internet cafe, the martini bar and bloody Mary drinks - buy one get one. There were two coupons for $5.00 match play at the roulette or black jack table - although we were able to use them at the craps table on the pass line with a couple of the dealers. Lotus spa, buy three pictures get one free, some boutique coupons if you spent over $100.00 that type of stuff.
I know a lot of people don't think this coupon book is that great, but if you are going to buy the stuff anyway atleast you can get more for the same price.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!
