Back to School Giveaway: $100 Gift Card (Three Winners)

restaurant com vouchers 80 off Back to School Giveaway: $100 Gift Card (Three Winners)

Many of you are big fans of because you know you can use it to eat out for a lot less.  For those of you who have not tried using, then let me fill you in.

You can buy discounted gift certificates to restaurants in your area on To boot, this website often has available additional discount codes that help you get even better deals on these certificates.  However, you must make sure to read the fine print on these gift certificates. The fine print varies by offer and sometimes requires a set minimum purchase or the offer is valid for eating in.  To be fair too, these certificates require that you tip on the full amount of your bill, before you apply the gift certificate.  That is right thing to do in my opinion, as there is no reason to cut the waiter/waitress from his or her tip.

Win it!

One lucky reader will win one $100 Gift Certificate to  There will be three winners. You can use this GC to buy a voucher to any restaurant near you. To enter you can:
