A: The latest edition of the Bali Incentive Book is released on 01 December each year. It is valid for 13 months, right through to 31 December the following year.
Q: How many vouchers are in the book?
A: In the first year, we guaranteed a minimum of 200 vouchers. The 2018 edition of the Bali Incentive Book contains 300 vouchers from 200 businesses. This will increase to a maximum of 2,000 in coming editions.
Q: Why only 2,000; we want more than that?
A: The book will become too heavy and no one will want to carry it around. So, we feel 2,000 vouchers is about our maximum.
Q: I can’t find a list of who is in the book. Where can I find out about what businesses are in the book and what vouchers are available?
A: We do not have a list of vendors on our website. We prefer people have a look through the many videos and photos in our social media as they represent almost all our advertisers. Bali Incentive Book users get to better know our advertisers this way.
Q: Why don’t you list the businesses and offers in the Bali Incentive Book?
A: We know that people tend to stay inside their comfort zones. We know that regular visitors to Bali often frequent the same places every visit. We know that there is a whole world of Bali out there that people don’t know is waiting for them. So, the Bali Incentive Book is designed to get you out of your comfort zone and exploring new places. There are 200 businesses in the 2018 edition of the Bali Incentive Book, some that you will know and some that you will not.

A: No. This does not work in Bali. Many Balinese businesses are not ready at point of sale to process rewards cards.
Q: I heard there was a Bali Entertainment Book as well, can you tell me what happened?
A: Sure. We were originally called the Bali Entertainment Book. However, not all of our advertisers are in the “entertainment” industry. In fact, only a very small portion technically entertain. We responded to an overwhelming call to change to a more appropriate name. We changed our name to Bali Incentive Book.
Q: Why are there charities listed in the Bali Incentive Book?
A: As you know, charities put all of their resources (money, time, people) into their respective causes. The Bali Incentive Book has offered up to 200 spaces for businesses that are doing good in the world. Not all are technically “charities.” For example, one business that will be listed in the Yayasan / Charitable Services section gives a free school uniform to a school girl, so that she is allowed to attend school, every time a customer purchases two t-shirts from them. We give away these advertising spaces free so that you get to know about the charities; and, so that you have the opportunity to support them or help them out in some way.
