Restaurant.com – An IncrEDIBLE Deal
Restaurant.com is a lifesaver for someone like me who isn’t great at making meals, but great at making reservations. Popular restaurant chains and local restaurants use Restaurant.com to offer restaurant goers discount certificates for dining out. When you’re looking for a discount at restaurants, make sure you visit their website. Restaurant.com is like a broker for deals on meals. They sell $25 certificates for a set amount, usually $10, but sometimes less, and you redeem it at restaurants you find on their local listings. Greater discounts are sometimes available with special Restaurant.com coupon codes, so you might get savings of $25 for as little as $2. I like it because I can eat out guilt-free, knowing that I’m not paying full price for a meal.
To find valid restaurant certificates in your area, simply type in the zip code or the name of the city on the Restaurant.com website. Listings show the participating restaurants nearby. Each listing includes a photo of the restaurant, the type of cuisine, their address, phone number, operating hours, parking availability and whether or not you need a reservation. Most of the listings also include a link to their menu and a short description of the restaurant highlights.
I checked out our family’s favorite breakfast restaurant and found they offer a $10 certificate for $4, a $15 certificate for $6 and a $25 certificate for $10. The minimum purchase amount they require is $40, which is easily met when all six of us meet up for breakfast.
The new Restaurant.com mobile app makes it easy to use a discount certificate. It’s free! Type in the zip code or city where you’re located and find a restaurant near you using the location-based technology, check the menu and buy a certificate. The transaction is paperless. Show the transaction to your waitperson using your smart phone screen. When you’re traveling to a new city this app is a great way to find a good restaurant deal. What I like is the built-in mapping, complete with directions, so I don’t get lost wandering around an unfamiliar city. Usually though, I use the Restaurant.com mobile app when I’m not that far from home. Even traveling to the next city can make an app like this a handy thing to download. It’s available for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Android.
Restaurant.com Coupon Codes
There are some important things to note when using Restaurant.com discount coupon. One is that a minimum purchase amount of $35 to $50 is necessary depending on the restaurant’s requirements. Another is phone ahead to confirm the restaurant is a member of Restaurant.com. The minimum you spend doesn’t include alcohol, and the tax and tip are calculated on the full amount of the bill. Sometimes the tip is 18%. Make sure you read the fine print to see if the restaurant you choose accepts Restaurant.com’s coupons on weekends or holidays, or if there are any other restrictions the restaurant has put in place as a condition to using the discount coupon. Only one Restaurant.com coupon can be used every time you dine, so combining discounts is not an option. Even so, if you save $15 every time you eat out and you eat out once a week, that’s a savings of $780 over the span of one year.
