Ways to Save Money Dining Out

submitted on April 1, 2011 by pablos17 in "Member's Lounge"
Hardly any of us ever have the time to make dinner at home every night. So why not do our best to save when eating away from home. Below are some tips on different ways to save when dining. One of the ways listed is Restaurant.com which we all already know about.

Sign up at Restaurants.com, where you plug in your zip code and peruse a menu of dozens of local restaurants willing to sell a $25 gift certificate for $10 and a $50 certificate for $20. These gift certificates often go on “sale,” Korzen added. At times, you can buy your $25 meal gift certificate for just $2.

BlackboardEats.com is another site that offers coupon deals for restaurants. The deals range from providing huge discounts, such as 30% off your meal, to offers for free appetizers or entrees. At the moment, they’ve only got deals in Los Angeles and New York. But if you happen to live in (or visit) one of those two areas, it’s worth a look.

Groupon.com offers coupons on everything from spa visits to restaurant meals. The typical deal will discount your meal (or massage) from 30% to more than $75%. If you sign up, they’ll send regular emails of the daily deals in your area. You decide whether to buy or delete.

ChowHound.com is a site where foodies talk to foodies. This recent discussion thread tells where you can get restaurant meals for $5 or less. Uhmmmm, tacos….

BYOB. If you’re a drinker, call the restaurant where you want to eat and ask about their “corkage” fee, Korzen suggested. Some eateries will let you bring your own bottle and charge only a small fee to have the waiter serve it. Since restaurants typically mark-up a bottle of wine by 300 or 400%, bringing your own can save a bundle.

      That's better. I didn't want to be Keanu. All that I can think about is Family Guy when they make fun of him.
