      Cool…..got $55 worth of gift certificates for local restaurants for $5.40…..love it!

    • Amy B.

      I just bought up a bunch for Al Amir in Irmo/Downtown Columbia. YUM! They have a special on Tuesdays at lunch $5 gyros and they are extremely delicious!

    • Brittany

      Am I right in understanding that they are more coupons than gc? They all have a min purchase nearly double the value of the gift certificate and they only allow you to use one per table. I guess if you know you're going there for a big meal anyway then the money off is nice. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

      • Lucy

        I totally agree. Not a great deal until you know in advance that you will in fact go to a specific restaurant, or you have a date night soon and want to save some $$$ – then it becomes a great deal. Otherwise, this is not free or cheap food, it's just a certain % off that you wouldn't otherwise get.

      • KAWilson

        Got one for a pizza place we like…..I would spend $20 anyway, so why not get $10 off….how is that not a good deal?

        • Brittany Mackey

          Hi KA-I guess that was the point I was trying to make. If it's going to be a big meal and you know you are going to a specific place then they are a good deal. The one place that interested me required a $50 without alcohol in order to get $10 off. It's just me and my husband. We're going to spend $50 for pizza and salads if we can't also get alcohol. I hope it's a great deal for you though!

      • Julie

        Yeah, they are more “coupons” than an actual gift certificate. The best deal is the $25 certificate (which costs $2 with the 80% off code) b/c most of these only require a $35 minimum purchase. If you keep it pretty close to $35 for the whole tab including food/non-alcoholic drinks, then your bill with the automatic 18% gratuity should only be abt $17. Add the $2 you spent on the certificate and you're still getting a $40+ meal for half that. $20 is usually the max we like to spend on any nicer meal out so this lets us go to some cool places we'd otherwise not be able to.

    • Alice

      Awesome deal if you read the details for each restaurant carefully and think it through. Must make sure it applies to take-out if that's what you need, or to alcohol. I called the restaurants to make sure the details were correct. Purchased four and will probably buy a few more before the deal runs out.

      Thanks for mentioning Ebates!
      I don’t use it, but…

      I use Bing for newegg (2-3%) and Fatwallet for eBay (1%)
      [But now Bing is doing 8% for eBay… Just found that out a minute ago. Anyways!]
      So, I checked Bing first because I’ve got the most rebates on it… and no go.
      Then Fatwallet…

      It’s a WHOPPING 24% however that may be off the final price, not the subtotal.
      Not sure, about to try it.
      It’s still worth it and I think I’ll summon up the courage to try Restaurants.com now with 80% and 24%… Maybe it’ll be a MM?

      You need to have at least $10 to request a check from Fatwallet.
      Bing is $5.
      I normally do it when I’m up to at least $20 to save trips to the bank.

      Read the FAQs or TOS before signing up for one of these to know how it works.

      Hope this helps you guys save more!


      P.S. I got hooked to coupons and promo codes through fatwallet, which lead to Bing, to IP coupons, to the store, word of mouth about SS, here, sunday papers, to then checking SS every day. Just giving you a heads up on my slight addiction to saving $$$.
      Oh yeah, I’m a single guy by the way too.
      Now I just need to find a way to save $$ on ink, paper, and electricity.

    • A.Sage

      this was great – i just got $125 worth of gift certificates for $12 – what a steal and they're at great restaurants – date night, friend night, after church lunch – yum!

    • kcreviews

      Unfortunately, there are only 1 or 2 restaurants in my whole city that I can buy certs for. Not worth it and so sad.

    • dmllr813

      Great idea for those upcoming little vacays! I also scored big at my fav mexican restuarant! WooHOO! Thanks so much!

    • kim

      So that was like one of the most awesome online shopping experiences EVER!!! $200.00 for $22.00!!! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH FOR POSTING THIS!!!

    • Natalie

      Just finished with my restaurant purchases. I spent 7.20 on $90 worth of cert. But I didn't know you can use only one coupon per table. Even if you and your husband have seperate checks, they will not take it. So read the rules carefully. I am still happy with my purchase.

    • Jen

      This is such an amazing deal!!!! Thanks so much for posting!! I bought several in my area (30338). Thanks!!!

    • Erica

      I bought $250.00 worth of gift cards for $21 bucks. I think that is a good deal to use to buy certificates at a later date.
