Restaurant discounts - the easy way
This month we ate at popular restaurants three times. One time we recieved 25% off and twice we recieved 50% off! We almost never pay full price for a dinner out.
Here is our secret. Make a list of your favorite restaurants. Then go to their website and sign up for their newsletter, reward program or email offers. Restaurants want you to come back often so when they see you have not visited in a while, they email you a coupon to encourage you to come in and on your birthday you will almost always receive a special offer.
Another tip, you and your spouse should sign up separately. That way both of you will get coupons which works great when you take another couple with you. Major restaurants - Outback, Red Lobster, Applebees, Ruby Tuesdays, Fridays, Olive Garden - have the best programs, but you might find local restaurants offering similar programs.
