Restaurant.com is running a 80% off special through 7/28: $25 gift certificates are only $2. Has anyone been to the places listed on the website? I bought certificates for Ounce and the Lodge at Castle Hills, since my hubby has been there for business meetings and would go back again, especially with a discount! Any others worth trying out that still have $25 gift certificates available? Thanks!

They need to go back to math class....that's not 80% off.

Are the coupons pretty strict about times/dates, etc.?

I have used these for several years and been to maybe 1/3 of the places on the web site. There are not as many restaurants participating in SA as there used to be. About 3 years ago, there were close to 80 restaurants in the program. Now there are 50-some.

The certificates are good for one year. The restrictions vary by restaurant as to days of the week the certs are honored and minimum purchase. The main caveat I would offer is that this is often one of the marketing tactics that dying restaurants use. So if I buy... say 10 of these, I expect that one or two of the 10 restaurants will go out of business within the next year. When that happens, RDC will issue a credit that is redeemable on a new certificate.

Have used one for Bin555.

Lunch, excludes Friday.

Spend $15 and get $10 off.

We each got lunch, a pizza for hubby and soup/sandwich for me. Even had leftovers.

Bottle of wine.

It was great, still have another and can't wait to use it.

I have also bought for places in Dallas when we go home, hubby and I ususally take out our sisters and their BF/Fiance. The discount is nice with a party of 6 for sure.

Some of the other discounts wont work with 2 people, you have to spend perhaps $35 on food, which Hubby and I can't reach on our own (usually vegetarian meals are just a bit less $$$) and we are not going to order an appetizer just to try and get the discount.


EDIT - Bought one for Rio Mambo before they closed. Currently have one for La Fonda, just waiting to go with a group.

We have used these before, mostly for The Melting Pot. Read restrictions carefully, often there are certain daters and times available, or certain items excluded. Very legitimate!

Actually, they usually sell the $25 coupon for $10, so it is 80% off

And yes, some have more stringent restrictions than others. But they are all clearly written on the website, before you purchase.

Oh, I never use them so I was basing it off the way it was worded.

20% of $25 is $5 !!!

$10 would be 60% off $25 - $15= $10
