First of all this is legitimate.
Go to Restaurant.com. Search for restaurants in your area. This site typically offers gift certificates for dine-in restaurants for about 60% off. So you can get a $25 gift certificate for $10. But it gets better because from now until Saturday the 31st they are offering 70% off your total order (code: SUPER). That means you can get restaurant gift certificates for 90% off.
At first I thought the restaurants would be cheesy chains... no... they are all independent restaurants. Each one has their own restrictions (like not applicable towards alcohol... but some exclude weekends so check first). I got a $25 off for $10 to one of the nicest restaurants in town. Then I got two $10 off for $3 to a local pizza joint. So that's $45 worth of food for $16... but after the discount I got $45 worth of food for ... get this... $4.50!!!
The fancy restaurant requires us to order at least $35 worth of food to use the $25 off certificate... so that's $10 out of pocket for a nice meal. The pizza joint requires a $15 order to use the $10 off certificate... so we can get a whole pizza and drinks for $5 out of pocket. Craziness! Add that all up and we'll pay $24.50 out of pocket (gift certificates and cash needed at restaurants to get a qualifying order) and have 3 restaurant meals out for a family of four. I think that is a deal.
And we really needed something like this to come our way. My dad is coming into town this weekend for Baby's birthday and offered to babysit the kids so Mr F and I could go out. I was kind of upset since we couldn't afford to go anywhere. Now we can!
