A Few Dollars Buys a Big Discount at Your Favorite Restaurants

  • Mar 9, 2010
If restaurant meals are a splurge, or you just want to eat out more often without the guilt, you must check out Restaurant.com.

Restaurant.com offers $25 certificates for participating restaurants at an everyday price of $10 and coupon codes to get them for even less at least half the time!

On my website, MomsWhoSave.com I frequently have coupon codes to get $25 certificates for $2 to $4. There is sometimes even a bonus $10 certificate or a gift card thrown in by another company like FTD.

What’s the catch? Well, if you call it a “catch,” there is usually a $35 minimum purchase required at the restaurant, so you're basically buying a $25 discount off your $35 bill for a cost of $2 to $4. I think that's a great deal, and I use these certificates often.

You can search the site by zip code to see which restaurants near you participate in this program. I'm lucky that several good restaurants in my city do participate.

Unfortunately, not everyone’s so lucky, and even in some major cities (though not many I checked) there may be few restaurants on the list—never mind looking for your favorites.

By the way, the certificates are printable, and good for a year from the date of purchase. If you print your certificate and lose it, your account information is stored, so you can reprint your certificate until it’s redeemed.

And, in case you’re wondering, I have never had a problem with a restaurant honoring a Restaurant.com certificate and have heard the same from my website visitors who have used them.

If you're eating out at at Restaurant.com restaurant anyway, why not
check out this site and save yourself some money --even better, use the coupon codes, and start saving lots of money!

These are definitely worth trying. They are often as low as $2 for the $25 off certificates, so you don't have much to lose!

Oooooh, I like the sound of this!  I eat out a lot and am a fan of dining sites like OpenTable and SeamlessWeb, but they definitely don't offer discounts like this.  This might also encourage me to check out some new places.  Thanks for sharing, Teresa! :)

Big fan! Unbelievable savings and usually reasonable minimums. Especially worthwhile when dining with a group.
