I’ve been using Restaurant.com for a couple years now, and I love it! They sell discounted gift certificates for thousands of restaurants across the U.S. (apologies to non-U.S. readers). They sell $25 gift certificates for $10, $10 certificates for $4, and if you’re lucky you can find certificates in higher amounts, like $50 certificates for $20, $75 certificates for $30, and $100 certificates for $40. There are usually minimum purchase reqiurements; for example with most $25 certificates, you need a $35 minimum purchase.
Right now I’ve got an 80% off discount code for Restaurant.com (Discount Code: NAPKIN, which is good until 7/28/09). This discount is on top of their everyday savings…so for example, a $25 certificate that normally costs $10 will only cost $2 with the discount code!
After purchasing gift certificates from this site for a couple of years I’ve figured out their cycle. Typically, at the beginning of the month they add more certificates (because for some reason there’s a limited number of certificates for each restaurant every month), so don’t worry if certificates to your favorite restaurant are out of stock. Also, discount codes are usually available all the time (just google “restaurant.com discount code” and you should come up with the current discount), but the discounts get higher toward the end of each month (the 80% discount is the highest I’ve seen).
The first time I bought gift certificates from this site I thought it was too good to be true, but I gave it a try because either way I was only out $2! (And I wasn’t worried about my personal information since Restaurant.com is part of the Better Business Bureau Reliability Program, and is McAfee Secure.) According to the Restaurant.com website, they’ve been featured on Good Morning America, ABC, CNN, Fox & Friends, as well as several other news programs.
If you enjoy dining out the savings can really add up…it’s worth a look!
