How I Got $100 in Restaurant GC's for $6.80!!

Good Morning!!

Just wanted to share an amazing deal with everyone. Dinners out can be quite expensive but we all need a break from cooking and the cleanup that comes afterwards, so here's how I make dining out affordable and fun for our family!

You might have already read my posts about Ebates, the site that gives you cash back on purchases you make online. In case you haven't signed up yet go here EBATES now and do that first. Then go back to Ebates, login and search for Restaurants.com in their list of stores. When you find it click on it and you should see that Ebates is tracking your visit and will pay you 15% cash back on purchases made at Restaurant.com.

Search for restaurants near your zipcode and see what comes up. Pick one or several if you'd like to stock up on CHEAP Gift Certificates. Be sure to read the fine print under each offer as most will have a minimum purchase requirement to use the GC. Proceed to checkout and use this code TASTE before you pay for your order. The code TASTE will give you 80% off the price of the gift certificate. For example, a $25 gift certificate normally sells for $10 on Restaurant.com, which is already a great deal. When you use the Coupon Code TASTE you only pay $2 for that $25 GC. On top of that, you will be getting 15% back on your total order by shopping through Ebates.

Here's how it worked out for me. I just purchased 4 X $25 GC's for our favorite Mexican restaurant. The minimum purchase requirement to use the GC at the restaurant was $50 which is no problem to reach for my family of 6.
I used the TASTE code which brought the total cost down from $40 to $8. Then in a few days I will see another 15% of the $8 (which is $1.20) credited back into my Ebates account. So $100 worth of restaurant GC's have only cost me $6.80!! Now I can look forward to 4 dinners out at a great savings!
**NOTE** The 80% off coupon code expires 8/31/09. They do run special discounts quite frequently but 80% off is the best I've seen so far.

  2. Hi Lisa,
    MBC is awesome! I've found so many cool blogs and other sites on MBC. If you sign-up for Ebates make sure you bookmark the site and always start there first when you want to buy something online. There are over 1000 retailers in their network--I bet you're already shopping with some of them--now you can get cash back on future purchases. Thanks for following!
