Get $25 Restaurant Certificates for $10 or less
To get an extra percent off the already discounted price of certificates, look for the promo code in the graphic on the left, if any. (At the beginning of the month, no discounts are usually offered because the supply of certificates has just been replenished.) Enter that code at checkout. You will get a $25 certificate for only $10 minus that percent off the $10 price. So, for example, if the extra discount on the left is 50%, you pay only $5 for a $25 certificate. That is the deal at Restaurant.com.
Certificates are delivered quickly by email, so they are a perfect last minute gift idea. Each participating restaurant sets up its own rules. There may be a $35 minimum purchase before the certificate is subtracted from the bill, for example. Or it may be for dinner only, or for a certain number of people (usually at least two). Certificates sell out as the end of the month draws near.
