Here’s how it works:
3.You pick the restaurants you want and add them to your cart
4.You enter the code FALL at checkout, to save 80% on your total! ($25 gift certificates normally sell for $10 on Restaurant.com, so 80% off that is only $2)
5.After you’ve purchased your gift certificates they just hang out in your account until you print them and you want to use them. They last an entire year. So you can print them when you buy them or print them as you use them, your choice. Print out the certificate, bring it to the restaurant and give it to your server.
6.Read the small print for your restaurant. Most require a $35 purchase and an 18% gratuity on the original bill total.
Here’s a dining deal:Spend $35 on dinner – $25 gift certificate = $10
PLUS 18% gratuity on $35 = +$6.35
TOTAL out of pocket at restaurant = $16.35
PLUS the $2 you paid for the gift card = $18.35 for a $42 meal (that includes a $7 tip!)
So it’s not a bad deal, especially if you are going to be eating out anyway.
