I think I am ready to take the restaurant.com plunge. I’ve read tons about the program and am really intrigued, especially since our family loves to eat out. And now’s the time, because they are having a 80% off sale! Through Thursday, you can get a $25 restaurant gift certificate for only $2!
Here’s how it works: You buy a gift certificate through the website. With a $25 certificate, you usually have to spend $35. For instance, if I go to Eastport Izzy’s, I have to have a $35 total. I use the $25 gift certificate, which cost me $2. My total out of pocket is $12 for a $35 tab.
- Go to restaurant.com and search for restaurants in your area. In Portland, there are about 110 restaurants to choose from.
- Fill your “shopping cart” with gift certificates (the best deal is the $25 ones–only $2 each).
- When you checkout, use the code: SURPRISE and 80% will be deducted from your total. (this code is good through Thursday, Nov. 20–order by early evening to get the discount)
- Print the certificates from your computer.
I am unfamiliar with most of the restaurants, but that is part of the fun–trying new places! Please note that I have not tried this before and am not endorsing it. I will let everyone know how the process goes and if there are any problems redeeming the certificates!
