Latest Discount Promotional Code Valid Dates    
Get $25 Gift Certificates for $10 (60% Off) Discount Code is Automatically Applied Always Valid Order Here
Buy Dinner of the Month Club and Save 60% or More Discount Code is Automatically Applied Always Valid Order Here

Gift Certificates has a couple of things they sell — they have $25 gift certificates that are normally sold for $10 each. That’s the usual price. But you can use promotional coupons as we’ve listed above, to receive even better prices for your gift certificates.

A very important caveat that you must be aware of and which I just double-checked: I’ve looked into the eligible restaurants where certificates can be applied, and the ones I’ve seen require a minimum spending amount at the restaurant. Please check your region for requirements on how the certificates can be used.

Dinner of the Month Club

Similarly, when does a Dinner of the Month Club promotion, they give you a discount on already great prices on their Dinner of the Month Club program. Here’s an example of how their promotional discounts work.

Let’s say they give you an 80% off coupon deal on their program, which offers you 3, 6, or 12 month’s worth of gift certificates plus some bonus free gift certificates if you subscribe to this. Here is how the programs will be priced (again, this is just an illustration of the value savings you can get by using the coupons):

   3 Months 6 Months 12 Months
Regular Price $30 $60 $120
80% Sale Price $6 $12 $24
Shipping Free Free Free
Total Gift Certificate Value $75 $150 $300
Bonus Free Gift Certificates (Value) $10 $25 $50

For the particular case of 80% off discounts on the gift certificates, if you order 3 months’ worth of gift certificates through “Dinner of the Month Club”, you get certificates valued at $75 that can be applied to any of your favorite restaurants on the list. The price for those 3 month certificates will only be $6 PLUS you’ll get another $10 gift certificate for FREE. That is, your $6 will buy you $85 worth of gift certificates. By the same token, for $12, you’ll get gift certificates totaling up to $175; and for $24, you’ll receive gift certificates worth $350. Wooh, not bad! Note that the certificates are made available once per month from the time you make the purchase.

For details on how to purchase, gift and redeem your certificates, just check the Help/FAQ section. What’s nice is that if you do use these as gifts, your recipient will only see their options for redeeming (and restaurants to choose from) but won’t see how much you’ve spent. These certificates will be good for a year from the date of purchase, but there can be special terms depending on which state you reside in, so just check their terms and conditions for additional details.

One last note: does these deals quite often. When an offer like this expires, it doesn’t take long before they come up with a new promotion. But discounts range between 60% to 80% off and are given out periodically, but you just don’t know when they’ll be available. For the latest, current deals, please refer to our announcement at the beginning of this post for details.

I’ve used the certificates here with good success. Couple things to keep in mind, first I’d check the list of restaurants in the area to make sure there are places that take the gift certificates which you’d want to go to and second I’d read over all the rules for usage of the certificates. You’ll find that many restaurants have minimum purchase requirements and some have mandatory tip levels. But overall its pretty hard to beat getting $25 off for $2.

Thanks for the info, Jim. I am purchasing several of these certificates for this holiday season as our Christmas budget has shrunk considerably this year. These days, it’s even more about “good value”, and I think this is one of the best values around (along with 80% off rack or liquidation sales), as you mentioned.

As you mentioned, just as long as you do plan to eat at one of their listed restaurants (you can also redeem from their redemption site at, then it’s a bargain.

It is very important to note that this works like a “two for one” deal. If you spend a minimum, then you can apply the certificates above that minimum.

These seem like they would make great holiday gifts for my family.

These kinds of bargain deals with gift certificates and sell-offs are going to be very popular during our new economic downturn. Food stamps are getting used a lot more now too.

Great find! I was a little doubtful about the locations where I could use the certificates, but the establishments in Austin listed on the site vary in price, location, and quality. I’ll be picking a few of these up as well. Woot. Woot.


PS – Who else is ready for turkey day? I know I am counting the hours! 🙂

80% discounts on restaurants are great, no doubt, but once one factors in driving, parking, taxes, and tips, is eating out still a better deal than chowing down at home? Splurging for restaurants every day can take their toll on even the most budget-conscious and it is a major vector for getting into (and staying in) debt.

It’s always great to make savings especially on eating out, but it does get me thinking about how the economy is when retailers are offering such dramatic discounts just to keep open their business.

Be careful about the restaurants that you choose. Just make sure you know which restaurants to pick up gift certificates for in order to maximize the use of your certificates.

I agree, there are many reputable restaurants signed up at If you’re going to a particular restaurant anyway, or are fairly familiar with a restaurant that accepts gift certificates from, then these certificates are well worth the purchase.

Student November 25, 2008 at 10:46 am


I bought some certificates myself. Though one was out of town, so I did not know the restaurants, however one of them was a small Mexican chain and they had a website that looked okay. Don’t remember the name. Going forward, I’ll be picking up certificates for restaurants I’m more familiar with.

I agree, if you’ve got issues with any restaurants, then it’s simple. Don’t go there! This is not a forum to harp on restaurants but a place that enables you to get a better price at numerous restaurants in your locality. If you so desire, you can check up on restaurants by visiting Yelp or some other rating service that will help you gauge the quality of the restaurant.

I’ve personally had pretty good experiences at restaurants at my local area when I’ve used these gift certificates. I was happy to have been able to get a 2 for 1 deal at the places I often frequent 🙂 .

Dang, looks like I was too late to pick up a certificate! Oh well, I can hardly ever find any good Utah restaurants on the list, at least the ones I am familiar with and LIKE to go to.

Why aren’t more restaurants getting online and doing things like this?
