Ok I'm a budget kinda gal & have never used restaurants.com - but considering I have 2 trips to WDW this month, one at Swan & one at Dolphin (lots of restaurants participating at both hotels) - I think I need to get on the bandwagon!

I see Sunshine Rewards has a 70% off code and 10% back...this seems too good to be true! Am I missing any fine print here? Do they email the certs to me or mail them? If they mail them, I might not have enough time to get them til I leave on Saturday. Thanks!

I haven't used restaurant.com at WDW, but I do use it for local restaurants. A $25 certificate is usually $10 if you don't have a coupon (some vary), but the 70% off coupon brings it down to $3 They also have an 80% coupon periodically.

The fine print - you print the coupon (they don't mail it to you), it doesn't expire, and there is a minimum purchase required (usually $35 to $40 to use the $25 coupon). Some places only allow the coupons to be used at dinner, some allow alcohol to count while others don't, and most/all apply an 18% tip on the pre-discounted total.

I order mine coupons through Sunshine Rewards for the 10% back, even though I only pay a few dollars for each coupon! :)

I too haven't used restaurant.com at Disney but do locally. It is not too good to be true - you do get the 70% off (I usually wait to get 80% off). And have always gotten my 3% from Sunshine Rewards - it usually show up in my account within a day or two. :goodvibes

Have fun at Disney!!

Thanks - it sounds like a great idea! I think I'm going to go order one for House of Blues at DTD and Garden Grove at The Swan.

Join fatwallet.com (it's free) and get 25% cashback on Restaurant.com purchases. I often wait for the 80% off sale, and get a $25 GC for $2, plus then get $.50 cash back in my fatwallet account.:thumbsup2

I have always used Sunshine Rewards for my Restaurant.com certificates and have always gotten credit and I have always had such great luck with Restaurant.com. I run contests all the time with certificates that my winners an redeem at the places they choose. The House of Blues one is a really good one.

I ordered a HOB certificate on Restaurant.com recently through Sunshine Rewards to use on our upcoming trip in May, bought, printed it immediately and received my 10% cashback on SR in just a couple of days time. It's so easy and I've also bought a few certificates to local restaurants too, it's a great deal for sure.
