With money tight everywhere finding a way to save and still get to splurge a little is awesome! Thanks to www.mybarginbuddy.com for this tip; if you go to www.restaurant.com and enter the code EIGHTY at checkout you can get 80% off of their already low prices! That makes $25 gift certificates $2 and $10 ones $.60!!
I will warn you to read the fine print; most places ask that you only use them on weekdays, spend at least double the amount of the certificate, and the tip is pre discount. But it still makes your meal way cheaper!
