If you've been meaning to try a new restaurant, are tired of cooking this week and need a night out or are looking for an excuse to get together with friends without breaking the bank, I've got a great site for you!
To follow the theme of our last post on saving money and getting more out of life this year, I wanted to share Restaurant.com, which is a website that offers gift certificates for say $25 and you only pay $2-10 for them. So, this means you can enjoy a wonderful meal for a huge discount! Each month the discounts change but this one is a great steal at just $2 for a $25 gift certificate and it is good until the end 01/31/2010.The gift certificates themselves last for 1 year. I have one that I purchased last year and I'll be using it tomorrow so that my husband and I can try a new restaurant out for dinner.
I've used this site several times before and received a reminder about this great steal from a fellow blogger at Never Pay Retail Again. Here is her blog post deal info below:
Be sure to use the promotion code 'BONUS'.
(the reduced price will not show up until you're checking out-- you have to enter the code: BONUS in the yellow box in your shopping cart and click "APPLY")
STOCK UP at this price, the certificates RARELY go any cheaper than this!
If the restaurant that you want is currently sold out, buy a "gift" gift certificate-- and you can select the restaurant later (when your favorite is no longer sold out!)
Restaurant.com is a fabuLESS way to try new restaurants-- or to frequent an old favorite. Use them while traveling or for date night!
Some of the restaurants have restrictions, all of which are clearly marked--i.e. must spend $35 and/or the gift certificates can only be used certain days-- but as long as you can live with the restrictions, go for it!
Restaurant.com gift certificates are instantly available and printable, and are valid for a year-- and, yes, they really DO work!
