Because I like to share a good deal . . .
We've talked about Restaurant.com before (here is Merrick's post about it). Today only, if you use the coupon code "WOW" you'll get 90% off any gift certificate, which means you buy most of the $25 gift certificates for a grand total of $1 (usually they are $10).
Austin has over a hundred restaurants that participate, so I went through and bought 8 for various restaurants - all for a grand total of $9.50. The gift certificates don't expire, either, which means now is a great time to stock up.
And, if $1 isn't cheap enough for you, be sure to go to Restaurant.com through Ebates and you'll get 15% back.
But this deal only goes through midnight tonight (Pacific time), so don't wait around. (It's been extended through Friday at midnight, so go ahead and stock up - just remember to check what the requirements for your gift certificate is; most require you to spend $35 total or order at least two entrees).
