Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

As Americans we love food. Even more, we love to go out to eat. It has become a pastime for most of us to go out to a nice restaurant at least once a week. Whether it is to socialize, be romantic, or just get out of the house; there is something to be said for a night out on the town. One thing that stops some of us from going out to a restaurant as much as we would like is the cost. The average person can spend around $25 a person to eat out on any given night. If you add that up that's a large chunk of change that could be in our pockets at the end of the year. But let's face it, no matter how tight our money gets, we still find a way to go out and enjoy ourselves every now and again.

With online discounted gift cards becoming more and more popular, we are able to take advantage of doing the things we love at a fraction of the price. One of my favorite go to websites is Restaurant.com. On Restaurant.com you can browse tons of restaurants and eateries in your area and purchase online gift cards in increments on $10, $25, $50, or even $100 and by entering a promo code get those gift cards for a percentage of what they are worth. For example, on certain days you can get a $25 gift card for $2. That's a $23 dollar savings. Granted there are some stipulations when purchasing the gift card. Most have a minimum that you have to spend at the restaurant and sometimes you cannot use the gift card on alcohol, but at the end of the day you would end up spending the minimum requirement no problem. Download the Restaurant.com app on any Apple or Android device and get all the perks you receive on the website. This app is perfect if you are out and about and decide you want to go eat at a restaurant. Simply type in the zip code and see if that restaurant appears on the list. If it does you can get the discounted gift card. What's also nice is that you can store your gift card on your smartphone and show it to your server at the restaurant without ever having to print it out. It's a great way to save a little and still get to enjoy the things you love in life!

Pros

  • Get discounted online gift cards to your favorite restaurants
  • Store gift card on your device and show at restaurant
  • FREE

Cons

  • Gift cards are usually not discounted on weekends so you need to buy beforehand
  • Have a minimum to spend at restaurant for gift card to qualify
  • Alcohol is often not included in gift card amount

Final Verdict

This app is great if you are someone who already loves to use Restaurant.com and needs to get an online gift card in a pinch or on the go. The app works almost exactly the same as the website but is convienient when you can't access a laptop or PC.
