$25 Dining Gift Certificates for $2.00!!

Restaurant.com Weekly Promo Offer 300 x 250
Simply use the code:

at checkout to get 80% OFF at Restaurant.com!!

This means you get a $25 Gift Certificate for only $2!!

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 read the offer carefully). 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! :) We have redeemed certificates at Ono Hawaiian Cafe, Donnie Mac's Trailer Park, Cheerleaders, Asiagos (Cathy's fave!), and
Fiesta Gadalajara . The cool thing is that you have a YEAR to use them!

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.

Some local faves:
donnie macks
Fiesta Gaudalajara
Melting Pot
Ono Hawaiian Cafe
Ricks Press Room
Lock Stock & Barrel
and many more!!

The code works on all of the certificates!

$10 certificate only .80
$25 certificate only $2
$50 certificate only $4
$75 certificate only $6
$100 certificate only $8

So head over and you'll be on your way to some cheap dining!!

Thank you for posting this.... I got about 150 worth of certificates for 15 bucks! Wow... I'm excited for this. I just wish Spokane had more of a selection!

Savannah - hey! :) I live in Spokane too. I agree besides bars (which I don't have a use for) there isn't a terrific selection. But....what is there is so worth it! My personal favorite is Pete's Pizza - yummy calazones!!

Oh, I just remembered something - you should try kowalaski's deli (not sure on the spelling). It's on division, kind inside I think it's a bank building. Anyhow, their selection of sandwiches is dizzying.

I love being able to try new places on the cheap!
