While we were out dining the other night, it came up that occasionally, I go through a lot of effort to save a couple of bucks.
Now you can too.
$3 gets you a $25 coupon at Restaurant.com. That $25 coupon is usually on a $50 total bill. So it’s basically a $22 coupon if you spend $50 bucks. They’ll automatically add 18% tip, but that shouldn’t be an issue either. Or you can spend $6 and get a $50 coupon at some places. I think I’ve bought one of those for Fuel near Santana Row.
The first time we used the coupon, it didn’t work out that well, as we ate too much at a little sushi joint. It was easy to use the coupon – just we felt bloated making the $50 quota.
But then we noticed that a local bar, which has all the NFL games and chicken wings and ribs (for Sal) was letting you get $25 off a minimum purchase of $35. So I have 8 of those coupons to use over the next couple of weeks. And I might buy a few more.
Anyway – the way to get it is to follow this link – and use it to search for Restaurant.com. The $3 promo should only last a few days, but the coupons you buy are good for a year or so (hence I’ve stockpiled 8). There will be additional messaging about using the marketing kickbacks for your own kid for college (recommend signing up for uPromise) or letting a few nickels go into Sal’s account. Doesn’t matter to me – just wanted to share the link for the $3 Restaurant.com coupons. Use discount code “thanks” when checking out to get the discount.
Oh – you gotta browse their list of participating restaurants. But we’ve been pleasantly surprised at some of the places on there…
