Fabuless Dining 80% OFF

Restaurant.com Weekly Promo Offer 300 x 250

Use the code PRESENT to get 80% off Restaurant.com Gift Certificates
Offer Expires June 16th.
For a tutorial on how it is done go HERE!

There's a catch right? Well kind of. When you redeem your certificate you have to have a bill that is at least $35 (some are now $50). So you buy the certificate for $2, you have to spend at least $35, then they take off $25 and add 18% gratuity based on the original bill. Total cost for you will be $18 including the original $2 (based on 80% discount) for the certificate. $35bill-$25gc=$10+$6tip+$2cert=$18. We love it because we will order a dessert or appetizer which we would not normally order!

Have you guys actually done this? Yes, we would not put it on here if we hadn't. I have redeemed certificates at Ono Hawaiian Cafe, and twice at Donnie Mac's Trailer Park. I have certificates waiting to spend at Asiago's and Cafe Vicino.
I am not worried I have one year to use them! Cathy has purchased them as well. I think she chose Asiago's. Natricia has used them at Fiesta Gadalajara.

Is this only for local readers? No, When you get to the site you enter in your zip code to get restaurants local to you! I love it because it gives me an excuse to try and support local restaurants in my city (46 to choose from). If I was to go to Portland for the weekend I could buy one and try out their local digs.

I want to eat out tonight. Do I have to wait for the certificate to arrive in the mail?No, you print it from your home computer. If you can't print right away they will email you the certificate.

I have a question. On the coupons it says you are only allowed to redeem one per month. Does this mean one "restaurants.com" coupon per month - or just one coupon per place per month?

Brandy- It says "Limit one redepmtion per party, per month, per restaurant."

So I would say per place per month!

The post says 80% off in a couple places and 60% off in another... which is the current deal?

Monica said...

You are right Cheryl, I fixed it thanks!

You can use this 80% off code to purchase a year's package for only $24! The coupons release once a month, and are the $25 coupons. The total value comes to $300, which is a great deal.
