Gift Certificate Deals

Hi - I was wondering if anyone knows of any Boston/Camb/Somerville restaurants that offer gift certificate deals. For example, last year we gave my dad a gift certificate to Maggiano's and for every $25 you spend they kick in another $5, so it was really $120. We would like to get him another restaurant gift certificate for Christmas because he took the whole family last year (obviously we spent more than the $125) but we had a really good time. Any ideas?

  1. Icarus was offering $50 gift certificates for $30 last month. Not sure if they are still doing it though.

        1. I too was just wondering whether any deals were going on. $500 is a lot to spend even tho the $100 free is a good deal for Morton's. If anyone hears of anything else, pass it on please.

        2. It's not a restaurant, but Dave's Fresh Pasta in Davis Square is doing 10% off all gift certificates purchased on December 6th (during Davis Square's Midnight Madness celebration).

            1. Skipjack's selling their gift cards at a discount - 20% off Dec 4th, 19% off Dec 5th and so on until Christmas, when they are back to full price. The only caveat is that redemption of these cards don't go towards their loyalty program.
