One of my favorite things to do is go out to eat. Another one is saving money, so it's nice that I can now combine the two! First thing you want to do sign up for Ebates. When you do they ask you to choose a gift card because once you make $25 in purchases through them you will get that card! Once you're all signed up, go to Restaurant.com through their site so that you can save 15% on your puchase, Now there just enter your zip code and find a restaurant of your choice. This is great for finding local restaurants you may not have been to before. You will see great deals already on the page like getting $25 gift certificates for only $10! It only gets better though because they have a promo going for 80% off using the code SAVE. Now that $25 gift certificate is only $2 and remember the 15% through Ebates!
Details do apply to use of certificates at the restaurant, such as a minimum purchase or 2 entree minimum. These details are clearly placed so that you know them BEFORE you buy. I still would say this is a really good deal especially as a gift idea!
