restaurantRight now Restaurant.com is offering a $25 Restaurant Certificate for $4 thru today 5/29 when you use the code FUEL at checkout If you want to get an even better deal, you can go through ShopAtHome.com where you will get 25% cash back for all your Restaurant.com purchases, making it just $3 for a $25 Gift Certificate after cash back.

UNFAMILIAR WITH RESTAURANT.COM?…
If you have never ordered Restaurant.com 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 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!
