$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.
