Book of Free
The Book of Free began in 2011 with the mission of encouraging San Antonians to explore their city's restaurants, events, and venues. Each Book of Free overflows with certificates together worth over a thousand dollars in goods and services that users can redeem without making any additional purchases. Partnering with local, regional, and national companies, Book of Free owners can frequent eateries ranging from mom-and-pop locations to larger chains. Merchants in the book include Dave & Busters, Chuy’s, Schlitterbahn, IHOP, University Bowl, and San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo among many others. The Book of Free team also gives back to the community. The company has divvied up more than $300,000 to local non-profits.
