Restaurant.com gift certificates

Ctcomfort Jan 26, 2013 10:44 AM

Was directed to this site by a friend- I only searched New Haven and there were many participating restaurants, but bought $15 gift certificates to Anastasias for example for $6.00 each! Minimal restrictions, no expiration, and once you purchase then you just print them.

Does anyone else have good experience with other similar sites that perhaps we can all benefit from?

    I've used them quite a few times, they definitely save you money. You are usually blocked from using them on Fri/Sat, but for mid-week dining out they're great.

      I have used them several times, never been any problems, while there are restrictions, they are not unreasonable.
      You can often find great deals on them.

        Brads deals often offers them less than the going rate. I've bought $25 certs for $3-6.

          wait until the end of the month to get them as there are promo codes for unused certs. Coupon code YUM gives you 60% off your entire certificate purchase (enter it after you select your cert). Makes that anastasio's cert $2.40 =)

              I have literally used 100's of restaurant.com certificates. Sign up for the emails and you will receive notification of any sales. In the past, it was common for them to offer 60-80%, sometimes 90%, off but these days 60% is the best I have seen.

                If you go thru ebates.com portal to restaurant.com, there are offers and 15% back from ebates. Warning tho - if you use coupons/incentives not listed on ebates, you won't get the 15%.
