UNFAMILIAR WITH RESTAURANT.COM? READ ON…
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!! :)

Right now you can get a Free Halloween Trick or Treat or other Occasion Tote Bag from Vista Print and pay shipping only. I love personalizing things and there are lots of cute designs you can choose from too. Just go HERE, and click on the “Get Started” Link in the FREE Halloween Tote Offer. Next choose the design you like the best and add whatever text you want to customize it.

You can skip the rest of the offers and choose slow shipping which should get to you in time but no guarantee. (They say 21 days, but I don’t think it has EVER taken 21 days for me to get something when I choose this option.), but this way shipping will only be around $4. (It was $4.41 for me when I ordered mine the other day).

If you don’t want to take the chance on the time frame, you don’t have to make a Halloween Bag. These cute totes are a great way to personalize any gift for any occassion and just choose from the drop down menu from “STYLES” to change the theme of your bag. It will still come up FREE with shipping to be paid only.

Here’s another chance at a Weekly Cinema offer without any obligation.  The Orlando Groupon offer for today is for 6 movie tickets through Weekly Cinema, but anyone can grab it. While it only works out to be $5 a ticket, each movie ticket has a value up to $14, so this has up to a $84 value. Enough have been bought so that the deal is on! To get it, Log into your Groupon account HERE which should take you straight to the deal. If you still don’t see it, choose Orlando from the list of cities, or you if you are not a Groupon Member yet, you can sign up HERE.  This is a very good deal in my opinion, especially if you use your tickets wisely. I save mine up and use them to see 3D movies since they are valid on 3D and iMax. This deal works out to be $5 per movie ticket, and 3D movies are $13.50 in my area. So it’s a huge savings for me & I get to take Austin to all the cool 3D movies! You can redeem them at Fandango or MovieTickets.com.

The fine print for this offer…
Expires Dec 3, 2010, Limit 5 per person. Must redeem Groupon at WeeklyCinema.com by 12/3/10. Tickets must be redeemed via Fandango or MovieTickets.com within 90 days of Groupon redemption. May redeem across multiple visits. No cash value. Not valid with other offers.
