I am a total foodie, but in the most equal-opportunity way. I love home-cooked meals, greasy spoon diners, upscale bistros, BBQ joints, fish houses, sushi bars, fancy steakhouses, taco stands, and hole-in-the-wall ethnic spots. I post many of my reviews on my food blog, www.nicoleratesit.com.
Unfortunately, my budget doesn’t keep up with food addiction. I clip coupons, get email alerts from my favorite restaurants, take advantage of Twitter freebies, and sometimes I even talk myself into free meals. But recently, I found out about the site Restaurant.com. It’s a site where you get incredible deals on local restaurants, for just a fraction of the price. In this down economy, every business it trying to drive traffic to their product…so why not Restaurateurs?
The typical deals are $10 for a $25 certificate, or $25 for a $50 certificate. However, when you sign up for their email alerts, they give you a code to buy the certificates for even less…even up to 90% off! One of the ways I’m able to travel so often is through the goodness of my friends, and finding ways to eat cheaply on the road. I’ll pack my suitcase with snacks, get a few groceries when I arrive at my destination, and go to restaurants that I can use a certificate. When I went to Florida in January, I got $75 of food credit for less than $10. The only caveat is the terms and conditions of each certificates. There is always a minimum purchase listed (like $35 minimum purchase with use of $25 certificate), and sometimes it’s only valid at lunch or dinner.
And now for the giveaway!!!
I am giving away a code for a $10 Restaurant.com food certificate! The winner will be emailed a code with a link to redeem your certificate on the website. Unfortunately with this particular offer, you will only be able to use it for $10 (without any additional promo code), but you will be amazed at the offerings all over the country.
Go to restaurant.com, search your ZIP code, and find a restaurant in your area that you’d like to use the winning code at. Then comment on this blog post, telling me which place you’d like to redeem your certificate at, should you win.
