Money-Saving Idea: Discounted Restaurant Gift Certificates

Have you heard about restaurant.com?  It is a web site where you can purchase gift certificates at discounted rates.  Plug in a zip code, and a list of participating restaurants will appear.  The most frequent discounts I have noticed are $3 for a $10 gift certificate, and $10 for a $25 gift certificate. 

This will certainly help the wallet when buying gift certificates for clients.  One caveat:  many of the restaurants have limited hours and/or days in which the recipient may use the gift certificates.  So be sure to check the notes for each restaurant before you make your purchase. 

I hope you are able to use this service.   http://www.restaurant.com/
