$2 for $25 restaurant gift certificates October 31, 2010

Last night was “date night” with my husband. We hired our favorite sitter for a few hours, the kids were smiling & happy when we left, and we saved $25 on our dinner out at a fancy restaurant! Oh, how did we accomplish that last part? Easy!

I bought a $25 gift certificate for us to use at a fabulous restaurant in town for just $2 on Restaurant.com! Hop over there TODAY and use code TREAT at checkout to snag this deal. I was excited to see several new restaurants added to the list in and close to my zip code. See what is new in your area.

Skeptical? Sound too good to be true? I was a skeptic too. So, I figured $2 was worth losing to try a deal this good. I’m a beliver! Give it a try. A link to the gift certificate is emailed to you (or you can print it immediately after making your purchase), and you print it at home. No need to wait on something to be mailed to you.

Be sure to read the details on each deal before you buy it. The restaurant I selected had a minimum $35 bill before the $25 was to be applied, which was easy to meet with an appetizer and 2 entrees!

Now, call your sitter and schedule that date night. 🙂

Expires: The deal expires TODAY — 10/31/10. Your gift certificate is usually good for a full year.

2 FREE tickets to Studio Movie Grill February 19, 2010

PLEASE NOTE: I have no affiliation with Studio Movie Grill and no matter how nicely you ask me, I can’t get you any free tickets. That’s something you have to do on your own. 🙂

Have you been to Studio Movie Grill yet? Honestly, I haven’t either… but, I just got my 2 FREE TICKETS to use in the next few weeks and can’t wait to check it out! Friends have told me it is a great spot for dinner, beverages AND a movie, and our playgroup has even headed there with the kiddos at lunch time.

To get your 2 FREE TICKETS, just fill out this form and they’ll email you a verification link. Click that link and you’ll go straight to a site that has your PRINTABLE VOUCHER for your 2 FREE TICKETS.

Hmm… I see a FREE date night in my future! (Except for the cost of the babysitter, of course.)

Find a Studio Movie Grill near you.

Expires: The offer to get your tickets expires at the end of February, 2010. You can use your tickets through the expiration date at the bottom of your voucher. I signed up for my tickets today (2/19) and my tickets expire on 3/4/10.

Thanks, Sarah & Jessica!

This is a first! We’ve actually discovered a BOGO (buy-one-get-one-free) admission coupon for the Dallas Arboretum! Admission is normally $10 for adults, but with this coupon, you can bring an adult friend for FREE any Wednesday through December 31, 2009.

So, clear your calendar for an upcoming Wednesday, print the coupon, grab your camera, and meet up with a friend! You can even bring a picnic lunch. Cheap date? I’d say so!

(Click here to download a PDF map of the Dallas Arboretum. It is MUCH larger than you’d think, and the entire place is gorgeous.)
