UNFAMILIAR WITH RESTAURANT.COM?
If you have never ordered certificates before- it is a great way to save money dining out. Go HERE to find participating restaurants by first entering the zip code, state, or city. You can further refine your search by a number of search criteria such as cuisine, price, restaurant name, etc… Once you locate a restaurant you can see the specific offer available for that restaurant.

These requirements will vary depending on the restaurant so be sure to pay attention to what they are. They are clearly described under the “add to cart” button in each offer. For example, the certificates do not usually apply to alcohol, take-out, or other specials at that restaurant such as happy hour. Additionally, there may be an expiration date and a minimum purchase requirement.  For example you may need to spend at least $35 to use that $25 certificate.  But it is still a huge savings on on dining!

After you pay for your certificate via credit card or paypal, you will receive it in your email to print out. Happy Dining – you are eating more for less!

Vista Print is extending their anniversary special and this offer is back up on their site and up for grabs. They are celebrating 10 years by giving away 10 freebies HERE and you just pay shipping! There is lots to choose from including mouse pads, address labels, and many more items, and you can customize them all too! 

One of these offers includes the free customized canvas tote bag that I made the other day to fill with baby needs for a family friend who is expecting. They have lots of different designs and themes for each freebie to choose from, including Weddings, Babies and other themes. I thought this was a great way to add a personal touch on my gift to her. 

These products, whether you choose one or all ten, are FREE, however keep in mind you will have to pay shipping on each one. So you may just want to choose one or two, skip all the other offers, and then choose the slowest shipping option, to keep this an awesome deal. Shipping on just the tote came out to be just over $4 for me by choosing the least expensive, and typically items arrive quicker than when they say they will. Go HERE to check out the 10 different freebies you have to choose from.
