Hawaii vacation deals & news: July 9, 2019

* Hawaii Entertainment coupon books are on sale for $8 including shipping. It’s about this time of year that the physical books sell out. In fact, I saw a note regarding this sale that there are “limited books remaining.” So, If you want a book for this year, now is a good time to purchase. After the books sell out, you can still gain access to the coupons with a digital membership. The books can be well worth the small investment for Oahu vacations. To help you decide if one of these coupon books can help you, see this discussion and also our list of what we believe are some of the better coupons.
