Restaurant.com: 70% off and 15% cash back

Now through Sunday, October 17, 2010, save 70% at Restaurant.com when you use the code “SWEET” [1]during checkout.

However, don’t use the link above to get to the site: use ebates [2]!  If you make your purchase through them you can get 70% off plus 15% cash back.  And if you are a first time ebates user, go through this link here [2] and after you make $20 in purchases you get a $5 bonus! 

So to help with the math: let’s say you want to get a gift certificate for The Bier Garden in Portsmouth, VA.  The price for a $25 gift certificate is $10.   Then, with your 70% off discount, that knocks the price down to $3.00.  Then go through ebates [2] you get an additional $.45 back! 

That makes a $25 gift certificate $2.55!  That’s practically a steal!  Be sure to check the fine print on the gift certificates (most can’t be used on weekends) but if you like to eat out, this is the way to go!
