I had me at snack.
Today’s post isn’t just for the snack or lunch (or both) lover, today’s post is also for the recession-ista who loves a good bargain. As many of you know, I am proud to be working as a blog ambassador with Restaurant.com for the next few months. During that time, I’ll be writing not just about the local restaurants I’ve tried out through their site but also the great deals they are offering.
Back to lunch…through Restaurant.com’s new deal, instead of just getting the regular old salad at lunch, you can now spend $2 to get a $5 Restaurant.com certificate…making it the ideal bargain for the recession-ista who wants to add some extra pizzazz to the top of her salad at lunch or head out for a late afternoon snack. Personally I think this is great deal specifically for those who are going to an office every day and typically eating lunch out – saving $3 a day if you are eating lunch out all week-long – can quickly turn into substantial monthly savings. Not only is this a great way to cut costs at lunch time or snack time, it’s also a good gift option for an admin assistant at your kid’s school who just went out of her way to help you, a coach on your child’s little league team who is really taking the time to work with her, or even your school bus driver for being brave enough to safely transport a bus load of insane elementary school aged children every day. The gift options are endless with the deals available on Restaurant.com and it’s a great way to go out of your way to say “Thank You” without breaking the bank.
Like any deal site, I always encourage everyone to read the fine print carefully. With this particular deal, you have to spend a minimum of $10 at the participating Restaurant.com restaurant to use the $5 dining certificate….essentially making your $10 meal, $7. This new gift certificate is available at over 3,000 restaurants nationwide and if you are thinking of ordering a gift card online for someone, Restaurant.com will email it to them for you along with a personalized note.
Happy lunching…happy snacking…recession-ista’s….
