Why use restaurant.com?

If you have dinner with at least one other person and you dine-in at lunch or eat out at dinner often and spend at least $25-$40 each time...you need to click on my link to restaurant.com to your right. Or go directly to restaurant.com and avoid my shameless plug for the affiliate advertisement to the right...but whatever you do, use restaurant.com if you eat at any of their advertised restaurants! Why? The website is free for one...and you get $25 gift certificates for $10. That's an INSTANT 40% off! There's no cost to ship these babies because you can print them online from your account. It's THAT easy. Okay - still not convinced? Alright, alright. How about this...what if I tell you how I got a $25 coupon for $4? Crazy you say? Crazy not...I broke it down today after a girlfriend didn't believe me:

I bought the following:
$25.00 Restaurant.com CERTIFICATE(s)
Quantity: 6
Price Each: $10.00
Price Total: $60.00

Apply then valid 60% off sale to purchase price of $60; New total becomes: $24

New purchase price of $24 divided by quantity of $25 gift certificates(6) I bought:

................................ $4

There you go folks. To find out codes for restaurant.com, search online discount sites (i.e. DealCatcher.com, DealTaker.com) for on-going specials (or just subscribe to restaraunt.com's emails).

*disclaimer: Before you go spending all your money, PLEASE DO READ THE FINE PRINT in the gift certificates that you do buy before purchasing. There ARE requirements. For those who do your research and read the fine print, you will be richly rewarded. My comments in the beginning were very important...some require parties of 2 or more. Some require spending a minimum of $40 to get $25 off. It's still a deal. But please don't do what I did - I didn't read the fine print and thought that a chain restaurant would honor another location's coupon. The coupon is good ONLY for that location unless otherwise specified (or at the owner's discretion). If are worried whether a coupon will work or not, please call ahead to restaurants you find on restaurant.com's list and ease your mind. It's what I do everytime before I buy, well, except for that one time. Be smart so you can eat cheap. :) It's worth the effort.

Enjoy!

Ha, ha...yet another reason this place is not for me. NO restaurants in Hawaii on restaurant.com! UGH! And we could really use it here too (unless you want to eat plate lunches all the time...which I don't)!
