Question Restaurant.com

Just wondering if any Canadians have used this website for restaurant coupons before going on their trip and how it works? Are the coupons sent to you by email? I had to put the US Hotel address to sign up... Is it worth buying?

I have used the site and it worked great. I have paypall so that is how I payed for it. Don't pay the suggested price. Sign up for the emails and wait for specials. I paid $2 for a $25 gift card but have not seen that deal for a long, long time. So that said........

You can only use 1 gift card a month. 18% gratuity is added to your bill prior to discount. They don't expire so thats a nice bonus.

It's been a while for myself, but I do believe the voucher was sent via e-mail so if you put your US hotel address and pay with paypal you should be fine.

I agree that I would wait for the $2 for $25 voucher. Make sure you look at the minimum spend requirements and understand that gratuity of 18% is included.

I think that the vouchers are refilled at the beginning of each month and you will typically find the deepest discounts at the end of a month. That being said, availability for all vouchers may not be there at the end of a month.

I've used this at house of blues and BB Kings with no issues.

Bon Appetit!!

I bought two a few weeks ago to use on our trip in Feb. I bought $25 certificates for Beef O' Brady's and Giordano's because people here have used the certificates at those restaurants and had no issues. I paid $4. each so that will be a couple of cheap meals.

At Giordano's I have to spend $40 and there is an 18% gratuity added before the discount, and for Beef O'Brady's we have to spend $37.50 and there is a 15% gratuity.

Also have been using this site for a few years. I have just used two in Frankenmuth last weekend and have two to use at two different restaurants in Fort Lauderdale in a few weeks. When you say that you can only use one gift card per month, is that at the same restaurant. We just used two at the Bavariann Inn restaurant in Frankenmuth last weekend as we used one on Sunday night and our sister/brother in law used one on Monday night and they were both purchased by myself. I sure hope that I can use both in FL...but I seem to recall that there was something about using one coupon per restaurant only once a month. We must have been lucky.
