Restaurant.com has a new 80% off promotional code:

Take 80% off of $25 Gift Certificates and pay ONLY $2!
Just use promo code CLEARANCE
thru 8/31!

For a total of just $2, you’ll end up getting a $25 gift certificate! Or for an even better deal, you can purchase the Dinner of the Month Club. What’s that? It’s a 12 month package that comes with 12 $25 gift certificates and one FREE $50 gift certificate! The total for this package would be $120, but after you type in promo code CLEARANCE—your total will drop down to just $24! Wahoo! That means you’re snagging $350 worth of dining certificates for ONLY $24!

    How do they make any money on these deals, Collin. It’s pretty cool that we can get $25 worth of food for $2, and I guess the restaurants get our business, but how do either restaurant.com or the restaurants make money off of this deal?

    • Tinesha

      I was wondering the same thing. I always thought this was some sort of scam, so I never purchased one. Seems like a super deal though.

      • Tinesha

        Also, do they send you the certificate, or do they email it, and you print it? How does that work?

        • Lpmousse

          I won a $50 certificate to restaurant.com from hip2save a while back. I had never done it before, thinking that it was kind of strange, but the certificate gave me the opportunity to try it out. Wow! My mom came into town a few weeks ago, so I got a $25 off of $50 certificate for Domo 77, a Japanese steak house in town. (You just print the certificate off of the website after you have purchased it there.) The entrees are about $25 each, so we treated ourselves to $28 entrees of shrimp and filet mignon. Yum! We put the certificate in with the credit card, and the bill came back as only being $35 before tip, after the $25 off. Score! My mom tipped on the original amount, and the bill came to just under $50. Not too bad for a really expensive restaurant. I recently bought a certificate for $25 off $40 at a local restaurant, and paid $5.25 for it. My friend and I are going there, and I can pay for my part of the bill with the coupon! Sweet.

          You print off your coupon. We no longer go out to eat without one. Whenever there is an 80% off sale I stock up. They last a year and even if we don’t use it we are only out 2 bucks!

    • JRABB

      Think of it this way you received a deal the first time and if you like the food and atmosphere you will return and pay full price. They just added another regular to their restaurant.

    I so wish I could use this! Where I live, not a one restaraunt participates ๐Ÿ™

  3. Kimberly

    Colin- I live near you and not one restaurant in my area?! How do you do this?

    • anon

      She might not… it might just be a post to garner referral commissions! not that there’s anything wrong with that! it saves everyone TONS!!!

    I’m excited about this. Never actually used it before, but I’m planning to visit a friend in another city soon…so I’m able to get enough to cover dinner for both of us at a nicer restaurant for $4…but Colin I also wouldn’t mind hearing your feedback on this site. Have you personally used it?

    Just wanted to let a few of you know:
    I found a restaurant in my area. I called the actual restaurant and asked them if they accept restaurant.com certificates. They told me that, YES, they do accept them. Sooo..I recommend calling the place that you are planning to buy the certificate for and asking them if you are skeptical ๐Ÿ™‚ I found a place in my area where the only thing in the fine print was, you must make a purchase of $35! Looks like my hubby and I are going on a date night this weekend!!

    • Michelle

      Great Idea – I purchased one last week to use on vacation. When we got there, they said they do not accept them any longer (even though you can still purchase them).

  6. Kayla

    plenty of resturants in my area, but most are really out of my league, and the rest i would never eat there. eewww.

  7. marilynn

    I have used one of these before. Read the stipulations for whatever restaurant you choice to purchase these for. There are not many options in my area, but the closest one to me says you must have an order of at least $35 to use the $25 card. Then, they will automatically put an 18% gratuity on the bill. So for this particular restaurant, if I did just spend the minimum $35, they will take $25 off my bill, and then add $6.30 gratuity, plus I spent $2 on the card. So I still will spend a total of $18.30 to eat out. Read each offer carefully and weigh your options.

    It is a coupon that you print out – at least mine was.

    • Sherryl Tracey

      18.30 is a bit to spend if you are one person, BUT, if you are a family of 4, spending $18 for a good meal out is great! You would also tip on a $25.00 bill as well – I know we leave a MINIMUM of $5.00, so a $6.00 tip to me is not a big deal.

      However – the BEST way to use these gift certificates is to go out with a larger group of friends – who wouldn’t want to be able to knock $23.00 off a bill with a $2.00 payout?!?

      And, if there aren’t any restaurants in your area – maybe you have family in another city/state that you know you visit regularly. THESE CERTIFICATES DON’T EXPIRE! So, if you have a trip planned in a few months – you can get huge discounts for when you are travelling!

      Another exclusion on MOST of these gift certificates is that ALCOHOL IS NOT INCLUDED in the minimum order – so don’t count on ordering a bottle of wine to boost your sale – lol :)!
      A group of us were travelling for business – and one of the ladies in the group had purchased a gift certificate. We were able to ask the manager, who did okay adding in our bottle of wine – but I wouldn’t count on all managers at all restaurants allowing that for you.

      • Tracey

        Just a note: these certificates DO EXPIRE! However, that being said, you have a year to redeem them!

    Great deal! We just purchased the Dinner of the Month club last week with the sale. Wish we would have waited and saved $12! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Kelly

    I’ve had really good experiences using these certificates. I’ve only purchased them when there have been 80% or 90% off codes so it’s a killer deal. What I like though is they’ve made the certificates have no expiration date. They used to expire a year after purchase. Even the ones I thought had expired now say that, so I can still use those. Way to go Restaurant.com! Don’t forget to go through shopathome. com, 25% cash back!

    Anyone know any restaurant or have been to one in Utah, salt lake/provo area that takes the restaurant.com gift certificate? I would love to try these out.

    thnx
