I love Restaurant.com! It is a website that allows folks to “purchase” certificates to restaurants for discounts. They “sell” certificates that are valued at $25 normally for around $10, but now through Tuesday they have them for 80% off! These means they are $2 for $25 off your bill! You can not beat that deal!
What I like about the site is that it is awesome for traveling and trying new places out. Recently a lot of us went to Tampa, Florida for the INA Conference. I was able to get certificates for all three of the restaurants at the Grand Hyatt. They were valued at $25 a piece and I purchased them for 80% off. They have restrictions on them but they weren’t awful. Two of them required me to purchase 2 entrees and the third one required me to spend $35. I shared these with my group of friends and said I have I have the appetizer “What do you all want?”
I have used these in various cities throughout my travels. I like to look at the restaurants that are in the area where I will be traveling for vacation. They make great gifts for folks that you are visiting or just because gifts. Once you purchase the certificates they show up almost instantly in your account, so you can use one today! Make sure to read the details and specifics for the restaurant you are interested in. Some don’t allow you to use them on the weekends, on alcohol or are for dine in only. I have never had a problem redeeming any of the dozen or so certificates I have used. So where are you going to eat?
