  • carrie c says:

    Thanks Collin!! I was so excited to get this! We just moved & saw a little pizza place we wanted to try sometime soon. When you listed this awesome post for Restaurant.com, I looked up the restaurants listed & the little pizza place is on the list! Yay!!! Thanks again for everything you do for all of us!! Hope you have a wonderful day!!! :)

  • Oliver says:

    thanks! it worked great :)

  • kimberly says:

    Love ya Collin. More stocking stuffers!!!! Yeah!!!

  • Kim says:

    I noticed that on the site all of the certificates are at regular price, not discounted. Do you have to buy through that link only, or can you go directly to the site and use your certificate? Just wondering, as I have not used the site before. Thanks!

    • jamie says:

      I got one these from Rite Aid a few months back for hitting 500 points. I had to buy 2 certificates at “full price” (i.e a $5 certificate cost me $5) when going through the Rite Aid restaurant.com. That being said, it is still free, considering you are not paying for the certificate in the first place.

    • Jo says:

      They have different promo codes all the time for different % off that you enter when you purchase them. I bought a bunch of different restaurants when they were 90% off once and now I have so many credits right now I have not bought any in a long time. Some restaurants are in the program and then decide to drop out of it pnce business picks up so you are left with credits when you let the company know or the restaurants go out of business in the past year. You have to call restaurant.com to trade the certificate for credits though each time you find out they no longer take it.

    • Kate says:

      You can’t use a promo code on that $25.00 egift card since you are getting $25 worth, so you can’t stretch it more when their are deals since it is considered a gift card. HTH!

  • Laura says:

    That’s dinner for us tonight – hooray!!

  • Carol says:

    Thanks! Look like you get subscribed to all texts, FYI. Hopefully it’s easy to unsubscribe!

  • Ang says:

    Sweet, thanks!!

  • harlow says:

    i don’t see any restaurants in my area and i cant figure out how to enter the promo code. help!

    • Janel says:

      I was going to say the same thing. I found several places near me but when I put i the code it said not valid.

      Does it go somewhere besides the promo code box?

      • TiffanyWhite says:

        You will need to go to the ‘Redeem a gift’ tab, enter your promo code and then it will take you to the list of places near you. The promo code cant be used in conjunction with their sales, so it will show you the actual prices (ex. for $25 you will get just that, $25) HTH

        • Natalie says:

          Thank you for your advice. I couldn’t figure out where to put the code in either. I followed your instructions and got a free certificate to one of our favorite restaurants. I appreciate you taking the time to write up the instructions……you probably helped a lot of people.

    • Jana says:

      same here, I think the closest restaraunt to me is about 40 miles

  • Suzanne says:

    “Cricket is not participating in this event at this time.” :(

  • Kelli says:

    Thank you!

  • Karen says:

    i got the code, went to restaurant.com, typed in the code, says Congratulations I now have $25 but how do I print it out?

  • maggie says:

    We entered the code, and have not re’cd the email. Whats up?

  • Donna says:

    So I’m a bit confused I printed out my certificate to my restaurant of choice & do I just give them the entire sheet of paper when they hand me my bill or what? And they would just take $25 off my bill?

    • TiffanyWhite says:

      Yes, you give them that when your bill comes. There are specifications on each paper, just read the terms, like most add gratuity before to cert comes off and there is usually a minimum purchase that exceeds the cert amount, so you cant just go and eat fo free, you will have to pay something over the $25… its all on ther terms of service and you can always click Collins link about to learn about Restaurant.com!

  • Jerri says:

    Right now I am on hold with the 800 Restaurant.com people. I went to the website with my code, put it in, found a restaurant and then checked out. I am already a member so I was recognized. It said I had zero credits (go figure) and then next thing I new I had checked out. No cc, payment page, nothing. I immediately got a confirmation email and am really concerned it charged one of my ccs. I went back to the site to check my account and in the payment column it says “MEGA” and for my other purchases it says “AMEX” so I am hoping that my gift card text was applied for this recent purchase! But buyer beware it is very screwy and not clear at all what is happening when you purchase one with this text.

    • Britt says:

      Yes, mine said mega as well. I believe that is their code for it being a promotion. All the others I have purchased said “VISA”

    • Chris says:

      Jerri and Britt,

      Did your cc get charged? That just happened to me — so here I am doing research to see if anyone else had a similar experience. There’s not a lot of info on their page regarding payment type. Is the payment type “Mega” a promo code type payment/credit?

  • Erin says:

    Thank you so much, I love restaurant.com certificates :)

  • tracy says:

    so exactly how do you use these,step by step

  • shally says:

    so can u unsubscribe to the text messages….if yes then how? thanks.

  • T says:

    I got the offer and code sent to my phone but I’m unable to click on the link…I tried typing the URL listed into my computer and it doesnt work..How can I get to this link?

  • Lara says:

    do you have to print right away? wondering if i need to wait to redeem because my printer goes through all the actions but never prints anything…

    • Kate says:

      Nope, I had credit from when a restuarant closed on me, and then I redeemed the credit, but I waited to use it on a restaurant because I wasn’t sure which restaurant I wanted yet. You can wait to use the credit, you may just want to jot down the site or the promo code just in case, since it’s located in slightly different spot.

      • Lara says:

        so can i go put in my code and the credit will just sit there? or do i just wait to use the promo code for when i have a new printer?

        • Melissa says:

          You can put the code in, choose what restaurants you want, and order it. You will be sent a confirmation e-mail and can print it whenever convenient.

  • Brianne says:

    Collin, (or anyone else) have you tried Asiago’s in Boise?

  • Cindy says:

    Got it! Thanks, Collin!

  • Diane says:

    Just printed an e-card for Grazies restaurant in Fargo, ND. I need to spend $37.50 in order to use the $25 gift card. That’s a great deal!

  • Gil says:

    Thanks, Collin-we’re driving-on way to Hilton Head for Christmas.(Isn’t technology the coolest?) I’ll use ours when we return to Atlanta. I’ll still have 6 delightful days left on my holiday vaca! :)

  • Linda says:

    never mind, didnt work :(

  • Karin says:

    Thank you! It was a bit confused to me to redeem it though. Got a code, and went to put it in ‘Redeem Gift’ tab on my computer. Then it asked me my zip code. After that, you can see the participate restaurants to choose. At this time, you can see the $25 credit on the top of right screen. Chose one(bc I redeemed all at once) $25 gift certificate to add to cart. Then my credit now gone bc I used it to my $25 certificate(this is confusing part.lol) Hit ‘checkout’ -‘ continue’ – entered my e-mail address – entered my info – checkout(no payment info needed!) then Thank You screen showed up. They sent a confirmation email with link to this certificate, so I’ll print it later. I’ll use this for our 9 year anniversary next March! :)

  • Molly says:

    Thank You! Just got one for the local pizza place! Will make an awesome gift for my sister and family!!

    • Erin says:

      If you are going to give it as a gift I would recommend adding enough money with it to cover the additional money they have to spend out of pocket to use it. I personally wouldn’t give a gift that would require the receiver to spend money to use it, especially since you are getting the certificate completely free. Just my thoughts on this.

  • tracy says:

    can this be used by someone else…like is it a good gift,we already have gifts for the grandparents,and i found a restaurant that is down the street from them,so would they be able to use this? and again,is it a nice gift,because usually when you give giftcards they normally spend extra,do you think it is cheezy with it being a piece of paper?

    • T says:

      This is a great gift idea, I’m going to give mine to my inlaws as a Christmas gift…I dont think its cheesy at all, put it in a nice envelope with a bow or ribbon on it and present it to them :) Even if they spend more than the $25, it’s still a great deal they can have a nice meal out for very little expense :)

  • Missvp says:

    Does the credit expires? Going to use mine next year, so busy until end of the year.

  • Kristen says:

    I text them and didn’t get anything back!!! I tried it twice..

  • Emma says:

    Off topic but H & M are giving away $10 gift cards on their Facebook page to use with the Wrapp app. Limited amount but I just got one

  • Roxy says:

  • Risa says:

  • jen says:

  • Heather says:

  • dayna says:

    Great blog! Sorry to get off subject, but since Nashville is a big up and coming city, I’m looking for a great Nashville sushi restaurant or Japanese restaurant. Have you heard of any good ones? There’s a new one called Nomzilla Sushi Et Cetera, but very few reviews. Here’s the address of this new Nashville Sushi Restaurant, 1201 Villa Place #101 Nashville, TN 37212 – (615) 268-1424. Let me know your thoughts! Thanks!
