Restaurant.com 80% off

Restaurant.com Thousand of popular restaurants. Fo

Starting today through  8/31, using code TASTE you can get 80% off your entire purchase on Restaurant.com. There might some restaurants.com that are already sold out for the month, but you should still be able to find some deals.

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

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

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.

      My mom & I have used this site quite a bit, and when they have these clearance sales, they are (as Jenny mentioned) sold out of some of the gift certificates.

      However, the last time I did this I was able to buy a gift certificate to Restaurant.com for 80% off instead of buying a certificate for a specific restaurant. Then at the beginning of next month when all of the quantities are re-set, you can use that to buy a certificate for the restaurant of your choice!

      Adriane- Thanks for this tip! I was just able to buy 3 $25 GC for $2/each.

    • Jennifer

      Adriane, I am always so bummed with this deal cause the place I want never has any certificates left! That is an awesome tip I went and purchased some gift certificates right away at 80 percent off!! Thanks so much!

      I was reallly disappointed wit this deal at xmas last year. I bought 4 certificates to 2 different restaurants, and neither of the restaurants will accept them. One stated that they were no longer accepting them, and the other said that the contract with Restaurants.com was signed by the son of the owner by mistake and they never intended to join. It sounds so wonderful, but I am reluctant to buy anymore. Maybe if you call the restaurant before buying them to confirm they ARE taking the coupons before purchasing?

      Chris – We’ve been using this site for a few years, and though we’ve never had that problem, sometimes it can be disappointing. One time we didn’t see the fine print stating that the certificate wasn’t good on weekends, so we went to a semi-expensive dinner and couldn’t use the certificate. Also, they are generally only valid at a particular location (like Entertainment book), which can be irritating. Most of the experiences have been good…calling ahead is a great idea, though, just to be sure!

      I bought a few last month when they were 80% off…. do they come in the mail?

    • tammy

      when do they expire?

    • Jennifer

      This doesn’t seem like that good of a deal to me. the fine print says you have to have a minimum order of $35.00 and 15% gratuity will be added before the discount. IF your bill is exactly 35.00 and you add the $5.25 for gratuity plus the $2.00 you spent on the gift certificate your bill will still be $17.00. That is only a couple of dollars less than what we would spend anyway. Am i missing something?

    • Wendy

      AngthecouponNERD – They are stored in your restaurant.com account. You view your certificates and can then print them. You have to mark the certificate as used yourself while logged in. That is the only way you will remember if you have used the certificate.

      My husband & I have used the certificates several times and have always been very pleased. The “add gratuity based on original cost” is standard for certificates.

      Thanks, Wendy!
