      I have never bought one of these because I am always worried about the rules….anybody have good experiences?  I always leave tips just not sure how these work.

        I have purchased and used about 6. Rest.com seems to have good customer service if you have a problem. Just make sure to read the fine print of the deal. Like Jenny stated, you will still have to spend money at the restaurant, but you can get some good deals and try new places. 

        I just purchased 3–thanks for the heads up, Jenny!

        My wife and I use them all the time.  The only thing to make sure to read is that there usually is a minimum order (if you have a $50 gift certificate, you must spend $100, etc.) and that they usually charge a 18-20% tip.  But it is basically free money!  They have worked every time.

        I had a couple of restaurant.com gift certificates for a couple of years to a local place that went out of business, and Restaurant.com automatically sent me an email saying I could transfer them to another place to eat!  Very impressed with that customer service.

    • The fine print states that you have to make a minimum purchase ($35 dollars and up for $25 certificates) and there will be a gratuity (18% and up) added prior to the discount from the certificate. That means: if you purchase exactly $35 in food and they are adding the minimum gratuity of 18% your bill will come to $41.30 and now adding the 6.25% sales tax in my area, we have a bill of $43.89. Subtracting the $21 certificate ( that’s $25 minus the $4 cost; if the coupon code FUN works for that restaurant) the bill is now $22.89.

         Yeah, I’ve wondered about these too. It can’t be a SUPER deal, otherwise it would not be so easy to get. Based on your calculations, I figure a person essentially (in the end) is paying out of pocket:

        $10 to meet the minimum order
        $ 7 in gratuity
        $ 4 for taxes
        $ 4 for the coupon

        So, you are essentially getting a $48 dollar value for about $25 out-of-pocket. I guess that is a savings of roughly 50%. At the end of the day, I don’t want to go to that much trouble honestly. I’d rather cut costs by ordering water instead of soda or alcohol, going during lunch hours, not dinner, and clipping a $5 off two entrees Q to take with me.

        :) Just my 2 cents.

        • Rachel Bullman

          that’s what I thought…it might be good for vacation though…we r going with friends so the bills we definitely be in the 35 and up range

          • Karmabottle

             Yeah, I imagine that if you know you’ll meet the minimum, it’s ultimately going to save you some bucks. The gratuity and taxes have to happen regardless. If you are for sure going to spend more than $35, you can figure that you are getting a $21 break on a tab (not counting the $4 you paid for the coupon). That’s not the worst thing that can happen if you are spending past $35 anyway.

      I got one of these a few months back and it says that they never expire, so I tried to use it at the restaurant and they said they were no longer excepting them because of new owners! A friend of mine said that she tried to use one and they said they no longer except them either. So just be careful if it sounds too good to be true it probably is!

        Contact restaurant.com, and they should let you exchange it for something else. They have done that for me when a rest when out of business before I could use the cert. 

      • Angela

        Restaurant.com is so good about crediting your account when you can’t use a gift certificate.

    • Pjcwomyn

      I still don’t get it. I mean, can you use more than 1 certificate at a time during ONE visit? I’m thinking along these lines: Purchase $75 in certificates, paying $12. Certificate has rules that must purchase $35 at restaurant and 18% gratuity issued before coupons. So…
      $35.00 meal
      $06.00 gratuity
      $03.00 tax
      $44.00 TOTAL DUE
      ($50.00) certificates
      That leaves…
      ($6.00) in certificates LEFT
      ($25.00) in certificates NOT USED

      That’s assuming you can have leftovers from certificates and can use more than one certificate per transaction, etc. There are too many variables. How does it really work??!!!!!! Thanks for any help/better understanding.

      • Rachel Bullman

        I don’t think u can use more than one gift certificate

      • Angela

        Your scenario works until you try to use a $50 gift certificate for a $35 meal.  You can only use a $25 gift certificate for a $35 meal.  So you still have to pay $19 out-of-pocket on the $44 total, plus the $3 that you spent on the gift certificate.  Not even close to free, but still a good savings if you’re going out.
