Deal of the Century: Restaurant.com!
I’m a notoriously ruthless deal monger, but even Boat Shoe Boy was proud of me for this one (and that’s seriously saying something). For anyone out there that likes saving money (who doesn’t?), you’re probably already familiar with restaurant.com as any self-respecting deal-huntress should be. Normally, you can get $25 gift certificates for a mere $10 through their site and there are a number of awesome restaurants, lounges and bars that participate in the scheme. Yes, there are stipulations but they’re clearly laid out by the merchant (e.g. must spend at least $35, must purchase 2 entrees, valid for food only, valid for dinner only, etc.). Not all merchants have the same restrictions, but there is usually something in fine print worth noting.
Regardless, I’ve just scored such an incredible deal through this site that I had to share! I have $250 worth of gift certificates to 10 restaurants in SF that I’ve been wanting to try + a $50 gift certificate to restaurants.com itself to purchase future deals with. My grand total? $37.50. No, seriously.
Here’s the deal: Find the restaurant you want, add the $25 gift certificate to your basket and use promo code ‘NEW’ when ordering. All of your $25 certificates (normally $10 each) will be reduced to $3. I actually added two $25 gift cards that were normally $20 each through the site and they were still marked down to the promo price. Such an incredible deal and such a great way to try new restaurants in your city or on your travels! Who wants to spend more money dining out than they have to?
Get online and get shopping! I’m not sure how long the promo lasts since it’s not really being advertised. Leave me a comment if you end up purchasing, though — I’d love to hear where you’re all going with your (nearly) free dining bucks!
Happy deal hunting!
