Get $25 Restaurant Gift Certificates for $10

restaurant

I just learned about this site through the blog-o-sphere and thought it was a great one to share with you.

Click on the Restaurant.com link to get your $25 restaurant gift certificates for only $10! I was surprised to find that the certificate can be used at many local restaurants. Whether you need a gift certificate or you plan on eating out during the holidays – do it the Frugal Way and get the best value for your dollar!

Another great site for your holiday shopping needs, RetailMeNot.com and Ebates (Right now, Ebates has doubled a bunch of their cash back percentages).

    i’ve purchased these in the past. be sure to read the fine print for the restaurants you choose, but overall, they’re pretty good. one of the things that’s pretty common with the gift certificates is that restaurants charge gratituity on the pre-discounted value of the meal. also, you can always find a coupon code for 80% off, so you’ll end up paying $2 for a $25 gift certificate. i’ve only purchased them when there was a coupon code available. you can google for a coupon code, check coupon mom’s site, or any other coupon/frugal site. they’re available pretty regularly.

    There are always codes floating around for even deeper discounts. I also think you can get $$ back at ebates, though I don’t use that service. I echo the other poster in saying read the fine print. Each restaurant has different restrictions, so make sure you know them before you buy or it’s a waste of money even if you are getting a discount.

      I love the internet for the easibility in finding codes. πŸ™‚
      I haven’t used Ebates either, but if you shop I think it’s a good deal.

      And thank you for the head’s up on the fine print, too. Now, if I could find that 80% off code, even with gratuity I think it might be worthy. Hmmm….

    I love Restaurant.com. As Lydia said, check the fine print – some don’t include alcohol or are only available on weekdays. But every restaurant I’ve tried from this site has been fantastic.

    As for gratuities, everyone should tip on the full amount. It’s not the server’s fault you have a coupon. Unfortunately some people don’t (or forget) so some restaurants have started adding it in.

      I always tip my waiters well. I can see how ppl would forget to tip them because they are getting a great deal with the coupon. Thanks for the tips!

    I just wanted to second or third the fine print read: the last time I used the coupon, our waiter lied to us about the gratuity already being charged, and tricked my date into double tipping. That’s more the restaurant’s fault, but it’s still good to be completely familiar with what you’re expecting to pay to prevent getting cheated. For lying, he didn’t deserve the already generous tip at all.

      The waiter dupped your date? That sucks! It amazes me how low ppl will go to be ungrateful! Maybe I will print the fine print and bring it with my certificate – that way there will be no questions asked. Or so that is the imposed outcome. πŸ˜‰
