    If you've never checked it out, try http://www.restaurant.com

    I never knew that this place had crazy deals going on. It works better if you live in a city or something with a ton of restaurants, but you can search your area.

    It's mostly like $25 gift certificates for $10, or something similar but I suggest checking it out. I just got $190 worth of certificates for $28.80.

    If you order by tomorrow (28th) and use the coupon code 'DINE' then it's 60% off. So a $25 certificate is $4.

    Just thought I'd give you all a headsup with the code and inform anyone who doesnt know about the site.

    This is in no way shape or form an advertisement, but if you feel generous or thankful, and want to be referred, I get $10 credit...no big deal either way. Just PM me your name & email if you want, if not ... eat up!

    :dunno:

    all i know is that if i can get a $42 meal with tip included for $21 tip included...i'm in.

    For example, $25 gift certificate for $4. Must purchase $35 in food. Easily done at steakhouse.

    say I get a meal that's exactly $35.

    $21 is covered by the gift certificate with $4 out of pocket.

    $35-$21 = $14

    20% tip figured on the $35 = $7

    $21 total out of my pocket for what would normally be $42.

    1/2 price ftmfw.

    The restrictions for mine are spend at least $35 on food.

    One is spend $35+ with auto 18% gratuity, and the other is just a minimum of $35. They're exactly like my example I just posted.

    The lunch ones I bought are $10 worth for $1.20. I have to spend $15+ on food.

    Makes for cheap lunches at a decent restaurant for me and the girlfriend.

    i used one with a 35 dollar minimum and 18% gratuity.. i thought i could keep the check to under 50.. but most places like that have dishes starting at 20

    we ended up spending over 80 bucks :hs:

    :rofl: well you have to know where you're eating and what you expect to spend

    either way .. if you were going to eat their regardless, you still save some cash. Especially if you get in while it's 60% off at the site.

    Yeah, that's just having good or bad luck with it. I have 3 good restaurants within 5-10 minute walking distance, and one that's about at 10-15 minute drive for AMAZZZZZING steak & seafood.
