People who want things for free make stylish outfits from hand-me-down clothing and can never eat lunch. Give your money a break with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a copy of the Book of Free certificate book (a $50 value) with shipping (a $5.99 value; a $55.99 total value).
The Book of Free, featured on Fox 29, compiles 100 gift certificates that owners can redeem for up to $1,500 worth of food, entertainment, and services around San Antonio. Covers conceal vouchers that users can redeem without making any additional purchases or dissecting fine print in a high-school biology class. Patrons can enjoy treats such as a trio of free movie tickets at Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas, dinners at restaurants such as Silo and Aldo's, lunch at Rudy's BBQ and La Hacienda, dry cleaning at Slater-White, and free rounds of golf at Silverhorn Golf Club and The Quarry Golf Club. Guests can contribute to live laugh tracks at Laugh Out Loud! Comedy Club, take overworked vehicles on a date to Express Lube, or enjoy UTSA football at the Alamodome.
The Book of Free's 100 certificates have varying expiration dates throughout 2012 and 2013.
