Restaurant.com - A GREAT way to save money on dinner out!

May 12, 2009


One of my favorite new sites - well, maybe not so “new,” but new to me – is Restaurant.com.

The great thing about this site is that you can go there and buy a $5, $10, $25 (or sometimes more) restaurant gift card for less. For example, if you were to go to their site right now, you could purchase a $25 gift card for $10 which can be used at literally thousands of restaurants. All you do is type in your zip code and they tell you which restaurants in your area accept their gift cards. Once you make the purchase online, you just print out the certificate and take it with you to dinner.

The best thing, though, is they often run coupon codes – I usually find what that week’s code is on the website for Couponmom.com. For example, this week’s code is: Special

Once you type in the coupon code, you can often get a $25 gift card for around $3! Now, that’s a deal.

You can also purchase “Dinner of the Month” gift cards – for yourself or to give as a gift. A 12 month subscription (where the recipient receives a $25 gift card, once a month, for a year) is $120. With their coupon codes, however, you can often get this deal for $24 (which also includes a free $25 gift card for yourself!) What a great gift to give someone!

My husband and girlfriends and I have tried out some great restaurants that we’ve never before frequented by finding them on Restaurant.com and printing out gift cards. Not only have we saved a bunch of money on dinner, we’ve also found some great new places to eat!

I just want to note that there are restrictions for most of the restaurants. Often, they require something like a $35 minimum purchase with 2 dinner entrees. But, even still, if you only pay $3 for the gift card and need to spend an additional $10 to reach the minimum, $13 is still a great price for a meal for two in a nice restaurant! And, if you go out with a girlfriend, and split the check, you could both walk away with a great meal for just a few dollars!

I use this site too and I LOVE it. We don't get to eat out much or at least we don't typically take the kids out-->parents need adult time together, right? Anyway, it's a great site.. check it out!
