Money matters, and this rings true for international students who have to constantly juggle academic work and a part-time job overseas, where things can be more expensive than in their homeland.

This is where the Entertainment Book comes in. It is jam-packed with discounts, vouchers, special deals and a plethora of goodies, and you can get it for $65 AUD. Although at first this may seem like a lot of money, the book is actually worth more than that. Affordable discounts at restaurants, movies, retailers, arts events and resorts just to name a few, are among the deals students can receive.

If you fancy something high-­end for a special occasion, some of the best culinary gems in town like Melba Restaurant and Collins Kitchen offer a saving for up to $60. So now it is the time to enjoy the fine-dining experience you have been wanting to have for a long time.

Your experience as an international student should not just be about study either. You can use this book to explore what the city has to offer, and to wind down after a week of hard work.

You can go to the IceHouse or Strike for a fun workout, or Opera Australia and The Australian Ballet for an artsy experience. If those are not your cups of tea, you can then go to the Luna Park and lots of other theme parks for some crazy rides.

Fashionistas can make good use of this book too! With ReviewMetalicus and many retailers offering decent amounts of discounts, there’s no reason not to buy that top you’ve been dreaming to get!

Can’t wait to go out and reap all these amazing benefits? All you have to do is to order this book, register your Gold Card that comes with it and follow the instructions online.

Simply flash your card every time you make a purchase and be proud of having your hard­-earned money go a long way!

So spread the word and share it with your friends. Or better still, use one of those “bring a plus one” book deal and enjoy the fun together!
