Need a place to take Dad for dinner in a few weeks?

Starting today through Tuesday 7/28, using code NAPKIN you can get 80% off your entire purchase on Restaurant.com.  They are also saying that they have added more restaurants to their inventory.

Whether you want a cheap lunch or dinner out, or you want to give a general gift certificate for someone else you can get:

$25 dining or gift certificates for $2

$10 dining or gift certificates for .60 cents

For us this makes for cheap lunches out with Daddy, or inexpensive dinner dates. Think of them as a $10 off or $25 off coupon.

Do you do cashback?

Go to ebates. Go to Restaurant.com through ebates and get 15% cash back. If you have never used ebates before you will also get a $5 bonus for opening a new account. Here’s a little bit more on what ebates is.

    • I received this link in an email today from a friend and thought I would share with everyone! Free Baby Blossom with the purchase of an entree…Texas Roadhouse. I’m still new to this, and I’m sooo excited to be saving money!! Thanks for all you do!!

      Word to the wise – read the find print on restaurant.com. I just bought a $25 gift card and didn’t notice that $50 must be spent in order to use it. Plus a 20% gratuity will automatically be added. My fault for not being thorough before making the purchase, but it was still a disappointment to me. At least it was only a $2 purchase.

      I’m new to restaurant.com and I wanted to try the 80% off promotion but didn’t see anywhere to put in the “napkin” code. I went all the way until right before completing my order. Did I miss something?

    • Allison S

      Once you pay for your gift certificate…how do you get it? Is it something you can print right away or will the gift certificate be emailed to you?

      Thanks!
      Allison

    • Allison
      You print it out from your computer.
      There should be a link that says “print now” or you can retrieve it from your email and it will send you the link.
      My bf and I haev found tons of new restaurants we otherwise wouldnt have tried through that website!!!
      They go FAST so if you want something, get it before it runs out

    • CouponB
      There is a popup that comes up right before checkout that prompts you to check the box that says “agree to these terms” It should have told you before you checked out…
      It is still worth it I think, might as well get an appetizer and a dessert!

    • While we are on the subject of restaurants, I wanted to tell those who live in Central FL about a site where you can get half price gift certificates.
      Much more choices rather than restaurant.com
      https://www.hometowngiftcertificates.com/index.aspx
      Its good for Brevard, Indian River, Martin, Palm Beach, Saint Lucie and Volusia counties!
      These go very quick too though!

      I just got 4 $25 gift certificates for $8! Thanks so much, I wish they looked more like certificates though, they seem kinda cheesy to give as a gift-which was my initial plan. But, its just a print out on a piece of paper, so I guess we’ll have to use them for ourselves. Also, it says only 1 can be used per month-how do I go about giving these as gifts and having my friends schedule which month they can use it? That seems like a ridiculous rule if you ask me!

      • Jenny

        Kay,

        It is really one can be used per person per restaurant. So each of your friends would be fine to use it anytime they wanted.

    • Dai

      This is so funny. A friend and I and our kids went to lnch today and used one of these certificates, they are awesome. We bought an appetizer, 2 kids meal, split an entree, and 2 deserts.

      The bill came to $38 after the discount we spent $10 each. It was very worth it.

      Most certificates you have to spend a certain amount, but it works great though….

      I usually buy them in quanities and then use them throughout the year, you have one year to use them….

      Love the deals….

    • Kay

      Jenny, I bought 4-but they were all for the same place. If I give them to 4 different people and they all went in the same month-would that be an issue?

    • Hester

      The deal is great. We use restaurant.com for all our evenings out.

      The code for the 80% off is entered on the checkout page. We just bought a years worth of certificates ($400 value) for less than $35.00. They do not expire for 1 year and we have a monthly babysitting arrangement with another couple!

      Now the dinners are just about paid for and all we have to do is pick a certificate. They make great gifts too!

    • Wynette

      I’ve also purchased gift certificates for our vacation destinations. We visited a really foo-foo restaurant in Gatlinburg, TN for less than $12.

      Again, read the fine print– some are only for weekdays.

    • I recently made my first purchase from this site. I haven’t used the certificates yet, but everything appeared on the “up and up” until today.I noticed a $19.95 charge on my account. It had a phone number listed and I didn’t recognize the name associated with it (ShopeEssPlus), so I did a little research. Based on what I found online, they are somehow affliated with Restaurants.com and that’s how they get your credit card information. This has happened to a LOT of people. When I called them, they cancelled my “service” (for whatever it supposedly was) with no questions asked, and refunded my account (or claim they are). The fact that it was done so easily shows that they are running a scam and know it. I don’t know how Restaurants.com is linked into all of this but I wanted to put a warning out there. I know I didn’t voluntarily sign up for anything when I made my purchase there, so they have shared my credit card number w/out permission. I will not be making another purchase through them, which is a bit disappointing since some good deals are to be had.
