They don’t feature the chain restaurants, which is what I love about them. In order for a restaurant to be featured. . .they need to become a partner in the Restaurant.com program. . .which means these are normally locally owned establishments looking for ways to get more people in the door. . .and willing to offer discounts to make it happen.
Here's how it works. . .you go to their website and enter your email to receive their promotions. I have been on their email list for about five years, and have never felt as though I was being inundated with stuff all the time. . .
Here is what an email looks like:
You already would get the $25 certificate for $10. . .but by using the promo code provided in the email. . .you receive an additional discount. This one gets you the $25 for $3. . .normally they are available for $2. . .I guess since the holidays are closing in. . .they figure more folks will be eating out, thus demand will be up. . .
This is what the certificate looks like when you print it out:
I purchased this $25 certificate for Crazy Cajuns in College Station TX for $2. . .
In order to get the $25 discount, we were required to purchase $35 worth of food. . .which is not hard to do at a seafood restaurant.
Different restaurants have different criteria, as you will see when you are doing your research on the website. . .there are larger $ value certificates available, which would be nice if you were going out with friends.
ONLY ONE CERTIFICATE IS ALLOWED PER PARTY OR TABLE. . .ALCOHOL IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE DISCOUNTED PRICE!
Yesterday, we took our certificate to Crazy Cajuns’ in College Station. . .here is what we got. . .
One huge seafood platter. . .catfish, shrimp, oysters, stuffed shrimp, stuffed crab and a bowl of etouffe’ for $24. . .
and a shrimp and oyster basket. . .which. . .because it was a lunch special included the drink. . .for $14. . .
So. . .for $38 worth of food PLUS tip. . .here is what we paid. . .
$ 2.00 – $25.00 certificate
$38.00 – complete meal and drinks for two
$ 5.00 – tip – may be higher in a fine dining establishment. . .this was basically an order at the counter place
$45.00 – total before discount
-$25.00 – value of Restaurant .com Gift Certificate
$20.00 – TOTAL
We’ve used their deals all over the place. . .and have never been treated any differently than if we were paying full price.
Check it out. . . if you’re going to eat out anyway. . .you may be able to save a few bucks here and there that you could use for other fun stuff. . .let me know what you think. . .we love to read your comments!
If you are a fan of Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. . .we often find those places featured on the website.
